Conan the Barbarian Preview: New Poster

Posted by Grey Friday, May 13, 2011

Conan! What is best in life? By Crom, we have seen the pretty cheesy theatrical trailer. And now we have an awesome new poster, courtesy of IGN.

Admittedly, our interest in the latest film adaptation of Robert E. Howard's iconic Conan the Barbarian dwindled more than a fair bit after witnessing the verily cheesy theatrical trailer that contained pretty much B'graded sword-and-sorcery action.

Now with the exclusive unveiling of a new one-sheet poster of the film at IGN, we are once again reminded of some Cimmerian bad-ass-ness of Frazetta's original iteration of Conan long before Schwarzenegger step into the role.

Speaking of Frazetta, here's another poster from the film which is actually the still version of the previously released motion poster.

See my point?

Anyway, here's the official synopsis of the film:

Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan's exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film. A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Conan the Barbarian (formerly titled Conan 3D) is directed by Marcus Nispel (director of Pathfinder, and the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th), with Jason Momoa in the eponymous role. The film also feature Rachel Nichols as the love interest, Ron Perlman as Conan's father, Stephen Lang and mixed martial artist Bob Sapp as the chief antagonists. Rounding up the cast would be Rose McGowan as an evil witch.

Conan the Barbarian is currently scheduled to be released on August 19th in 3D.
