Meet Khalar Zym, a ruthless empire-building warlord, the main bad guy in Marcus Nispel's new take on Conan the Barbarian. Playing Zym in this is none other than the badass Stephen Lang, who most may recognize from Avatar or the upcoming "Terra Nova". We've already seen the theatrical trailer, so Lionsgate has asked us and four other sites to individually debut a series of character posters for the movie. We've got Zym and I couldn't be happier to premiere this, as it's a badass poster and Lang is specifically one of the reasons I'm still looking forward to seeing this. Check out the full Zym poster and links to the others below!
Khalar Zym, who was originally going to be called Khalar Singh, is played by Stephen Lang. You can view the official FirstShowing poster below in full, and find links to the four others in the character poster series beneath that as well. If you haven't seen the latest theatrical trailer for Conan, be sure to check it out.
In addition to this poster, MTV has Jason Momoa as Conan; ComingSoon has Ron Perlman as Corin, Conan's father and leader of the Cimmerians; Pop Wrap has Rose McGowan as Marique; And finally, JoBlo has Rachel Nichols as Tamara. Click on any of those links to see the other posters from the series!
In addition to Momoa, Conan the Barbarian stars Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols, Rose McGowan, Stephen Lang, Steven O'Donnell and Saïd Taghmaoui as Ela-Shan. 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 characters created by Robert E. Howard which first debuted in 1932 in Weird Tales. Lionsgate is bringing Conan the Barbarian to theaters in 3D starting on August 19th this summer.
