Conan the Barbarian

Enter An Age Undreamed Of. Whoa, what a tagline. Fandango has premiered the final official poster for Lionsgate's Conan the Barbarian, directed by Marcus Nispel and starring Jason Momoa as Conan. We've seen a lot of trailers (red band) and posters for this already, and most seem to think it looks bad, but I'm going to say that I really love this final poster. It just has that epic, badass look and the characters are arranged in a classic 80's-action-movie kind of way. I'm sure some will disagree with me, as always, but out of all the posters we've seen for Conan, this is definitely one of the better ones. Check this out in full below!

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.

This movie is gonna be epic!  I know we all think of arnie when we think conan, but this guy is exactly what I think of when Im reading the books.

I and all my friends picture Conan character as drawn by John Buscema in Marvel's  Conan the Barbarian and Savage Sword of Conan comic series.  And Arnie is much closer to that. Momoa was cool in GoT but still too pretty and young for Conan, sort of not rugged and bulky enough (and yes I know that's not in the books)

Yes, but Momoa is quite close to the Barry Windsor-Smith Conan from the (pre-Buscema) Marvel line.

yes good point, but imho Momoa still lacks that presence Conan should have. I can swear he was bulkier in GoT than in these trailers for the movie. Still I'll be first in line when it get to theaters 🙂

i like Momoa Conan because i wont laugh when he tries to talk...

I think he could use a bit more bulk in his arms, but otherwise he seems like a reasonably good choice.  (Much better than wrestler Triple H- who Milius reportedly wanted to cast in King Conan.) Of course, I'll still expect Momoa to bulk up more if there's a sequel.  The fact that he's playing a young Conan here is primarily what makes his physique easier to accept, imo.

This is on my watch list, at least the real version.

Mamoa definitely gained my respect after Game of Thrones. Fucking amazing

Man, this poster would be even cooler if it was hand drawn because it definitely gives off that epic, old school poster vibe.

Momoa is def the next Ahnuld. Well, at least that's how they're trying to brand him. Thing is he can actually act quite well. He was good in GoT. Love this poster. Hate the tagline. "Undreamed of" doesn't make sense. Of course it has been dreamed of. It's already a movie.

i liked him in Stargate Atlantis too.....

Jericho on Jul 9, 2011


The idea is that the film is talking about a real lost age, which is currently unknown to modern humanity, which never dreamed of such an age. Hence, an age undreamed of. That's how it was in the first Conan story, "The Phoenix on the Sword," which is where this film (and the 1982 film for that matter) got that line from.

I think we should all follow Rose McGowan's example (in this poster) and light one up before the movie. It'll make the 3.1 surround vision that much more awesomer! (cough cough)

The lady Conan with the sword has some nice tits.

poster looks so average nothing unique at all

This should be called "The Rise of Khal Drogo"

I love orange and blue posters. For a photoshop it looks really good.

We were entertained back then when Arnie was Conan. But we must give Momoa the benefit of the doubt as he resurrects this franchise. Besides, Rachel Nichols is so darn hot! She was hot in P7, hot in GI Joe...nuff said!
