First Epic Motion Poster for Jason Momoa's 'Conan the Barbarian'
Words are not needed to introduce him. Lionsgate has debuted the first "motion poster" via IGN for Conan the Barbarian 3D, the Marcus Nispel-directed reboot of the classic, badass Robert E. Howard character. Former "Stargate: Atlantis" actor Jason Momoa is taking over for Schwarzenegger as Conan the Barbarian this time, and can be seen on the poster below. We haven't seen a trailer for this movie yet, or anything else besides a few photos from last year, but this makes me think something big is coming soon, so stick around. In the meantime, you can also check out the brand new official website, which currently only has this poster.
In addition to Momoa, Conan stars Ron Perlman as Corin, Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym, Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Rose McGowan as Marique (no longer Red Sonja!) and Saïd Taghmaoui. This is being directed by Marcus Nispel of the Friday the 13th remake, that atrocity Pathfinder, the other Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake, and a bunch of music videos. This is a Nu Image/Millennium Films production co-produced by Avi Lerner and Joe Gatta and is based on the classic Robert E. Howard characters which first debuted in 1932 in Weird Tales. Lionsgate is bringing Conan the Barbarian to theaters in 3D on August 19th in the summer.
