CONAN THE BARBARIAN opens August 19th, from Lionsgate.
Here’s the full trailer for CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Looks like plenty of swords and a nice amount of sorcery.
This new film of Robert E. Howard’s pulp character stars Jason Momoa (STARGATE: ATLANTIS), Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang (AVATAR), Rose McGowan (CHARMED), Saïd Taghmaoui, Ron Perlman (HELLBOY), Katarzyna Wolejnio, Leo Howard, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi, and Nonso Anozie.
Directed by Marcus Nispel, from a screenplay by Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer, and Sean Hood CONAN invades theaters August 19th, in normal and 3-D versions.
MTV interviewed Jason Momoa about CONAN THE BARBARIAN, and the actor confirmed that the new film does contain an origin story.
“It’s rebuilding and rebooting the franchise…It starts with his birth, what happened to his family, what happened to his father—obviously his father is killed—and him going into the pirating and the thieving and wandering and being the degenerate that he is and then usurping a throne and finding out who killed his father.
It’s a revenge story, with a little bit a love in there.”
