Conan the Barbarian (2011)
Conan the Barbarian Synopsis
“I live. I love. I slay…I am content.” - Conan The Barbarian
The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. 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.

Arnold Schwarzenegger To Return For The Legend Of Conan
Last year's Conan The Barbarian remake was not only one of last year's biggest critical punching bags, but was a total flop at the box office as well. Though it was made for a modest $90 million, the film not only manged to pull in the low sum of $21 million domestically, but was an international disappointment too, pulling in only $48 million globally by the time in left theaters.

Conan The Barbarian Screenwriter Reveals What It's Like To See Your Movie Flop
Sean Hood has weathered other critical misfires like Halloween: Resurrection and Cube: Hypercube. This time, though, Hood took to the Internet to describe what it feels like to watch your movie tank, in a long and very thoughtful post. In some ways he's got some necessary distance from the process-- he argues, as many screenwriters on big films do, that

Stan Lee Media Inc. Is Suing Conan The Barbarian
It goes without saying that Conan The Barbarian was a massive disappointment. In addition to getting absolutely dismal reviews, the Marcus Nispel-directed film opened at #4 last weekend and only took in a little over $10 million. Considering it had a $90 million budget, the movie will need to pull a miracle out of its ass internationally if it doesn't want to go down as one of the biggest flops of 2011.

Interview: Conan The Barbarian's Rose McGowan
A couple weeks ago I was invited to participate in a roundtable with the actress in which she talked about her work on the Marcus Nispel film. Check out the interview inside in which McGowan talks about scratching herself with her own claws, sitting in the makeup chair for hours on end, and leaving the set in Bulgaria to go visit the troops in Afghanistan.

Watch The First Scene From Conan The Barbarian
Director Marcus Nispel may not have the greatest titles listed on his filmography, but if there's one thing the man knows how to do it's how to spill blood all over the silver screen. From the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to Friday The 13th to Pathfinder, he has demonstrated often that he knows how to make his characters act in the most brutal fashion possible.

UK Trailer For Conan The Barbarian
After what director Marcus Nispel did to both the Friday The 13th and Texas Chainsaw Massacre remakes, I've had a hard time understanding why anybody is excited for his take on Conan The Barbarian. Sure, there's great potential for brutal, bloody violence, but the same can be said about his two prior remakes and how well did that turn out?

Conan The Barbarian Character Posters
Having never really seen Jason Momoa act before, I was a little skeptical when they announced he’d be stepping into the role of the beloved Conan the Barbarian. He has the look, but there wasn’t much else to go on. But now that he’s graced the small screen as Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game of Thrones it’s pretty safe to say that Jason Momoa is one bad muther effer and that the role of Conan is safe in his hands.

Theatrical Trailer For Conan The Barbarian Remake Released
It's been a while since we last saw anything official from the Marcus Nispel-directed remake of Conan The Barbarian - nearly two months to be exact. It was back in early March that the first image of Stephen Lang in makeup as Khalar Zym and the teaser trailer showed up, but neither really gave us any sense of the movie. The first theatrical trailer is here to change that.

First Image Of Stephen Lang In Conan The Barbarian Makes You Wonder What They Were Thinking

First Conan The Barbarian Remake Trailer Lives, Loves And Slays
As a teaser it gives us glimpses at some of the characters in the film and a single line of classic barbarian wisdom delivered by Conan himself, now played by the appropriately bulky, deep-voiced Jason Momoa. There’s not a lot to see here, but it’s a good line. Still, I think I’d have gone with “to crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and hear the lamentation of the women”.

Motion Poster For Conan The Barbarian 3D Revealed
When you really think about it, motion posters are really just flash ads that happen to make their way into the news section of movie websites. It's also kind of annoying that they start up automatically and usually play loud, blaring music or sound effects, neither of which are great when you are looking at them at work with your speakers turned up.
