Zack Snyder - The Golden Briefcase

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest Tom Merritt from the TWiT (This Week in Tech) network to go over the latest Picks of the Week, the newest in DVD/Blu-Ray releases, new trailers for Tom Hanks' Larry Crowne and the teaser for Lionsgate's Conan the Barbarian 3D remake, hear a recap of last week's SXSW Film Festival and much more! The main topic of the night was the career of director Zack Snyder, in honor of Sucker Punch hitting theaters this Friday. The guys talk over Snyder's filmography and talk about their anticipations for Sucker Punch, as well as his take on Superman.

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Tuesday nights starting at 7:30PM (PST). You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!

Just try reloading. Should work.

The "I live, I love, I slay, and I am content" part is a paraphrase of one of the most famous lines from one of the original Conan stories, "Queen of the Black Coast." Simplified and out of context (considering we don't know the context in the film itself from the trailer), but it's something Robert E. Howard fans appreciate. That said, it isn't fair to compare this with the trailer for the 1982 film, since it isn't a trailer at all: just a teaser. I'm sure the next one will show a lot more.

@taranaich So true. I am pretty excited to see what's next for Conan. I really liked Jason Momoa when he was in SG: Atlantis. One reservation though is that it is feeling a lot like the Clash of the Titans remake. We shall see...
