HOLLYWOOD SPY SPOTLIGHTS: BREATHTAKING EPIC ADVENTURE "CONAN THE BARBARIAN" WITH JASON MOMOA, RON PERLMAN, RACHEL NICHOLS & ROSE MCGOWAN READY TO PREMIERE THIS AUGUST!

Although August is usually considered a dumpster place for summer flicks of suspicious quality, this August will bring us something rather epic and visually stunning, the premiere of this summer's hottest remake CONAN THE BARBARIAN in which Jason Momoa takes the role made famous earlier by Arnold Schwarze negger. Today you can check out some brilliant new posters and the highly exciting trailer. It might not be the best of films plotwise, but it will surely bring us breath taking action, stunning sets and costumes, glorious CGI and of course lots of epic battle.
BARBARIAN TIDBITS
After starring in BAYWATCH and STARGATE ATLANTYS, Jason Momoa's career is currently taking an epic turn with his role as Conan and his role of Khal Drogo in HBO'S epic show GAME OF THRONES.  Stunning Rachel Nichols, who plays the lead female role of Tamara, is best remembered as Scarlett from G.I.JOE film. Before Momoa got the lead role two TV hunks Kellan Lutz and Jared Padalecki were in the run to play the famous Barbarian. Mickey Rourke and Dolph Lundgren were in the run for the role of Corin, Conan's father.
Story begins when Khalar Singh (Stephen Lang), an old friend of Conan's father, Corin (Ron Perlman), arrives in Cimmeria seeking Corin's help in finding Ilira, the "Lost Queen of Acheron". When Corin refuses, Khalar and his Aquilonian mercenaries attack. Corin and the other Cimmerians are killed but Conan escapes. Conan becomes a thief and joins a troup of acrobats, but eventually seeks revenge against Khalar for killing his father. In the meantime,
Khalar has found and captured Ilira on his own but her bodyguard Tamara (Rachel Nichols) escapes. Tamara meets Conan and they both travel to Khalar's city, Khor Khala. This 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.
The cast also includes Rose McGowan as the evil witch Marique and Said Taghmaoui as Ela-Shan, and the film is directed by Marcus Nispel known for directing music videos and brilliant Viking adventure PATHFINDER with Karl Urban.

    @E
    It does, and that's what we like about it :)

    @Jemi
    hope you are watching him in GAME OF THRONES too :)

  5. Okay, this Conan looks waaaay better than the original. I might have to watch it. Plus that Momoa guy is much more attractive than Arnold. :)

    (linking to the thong post? Now how am I gonna count my stats?)

  6. agree with you on both Conan points :)

  7. I so cannot wait for Conan. Jason Momoa is savagely hot. He sizzles on the screen with those amazing eyes and that killer bod. Way better than the Governator. Plus he brings personality to Conan, who was so silent and stoic in the original. Then there's my girl Rose, who looks outrageously stunning.

    Cool link! ;)

  8. I think Barbarian film will be a fest of barbaric goriness and dark bloody violences, some stuffs that our Dearest Nanny Dezzy usually avoided ;P :))

    he really is a rather interesting new face in Hollywood. I like that beside Dwayne Johnson we have another Hawaiian looking star in Tinseltown. I guess we shall see much more of him in the future, and CONAN might even get sequels if this one proves successful. Rose is the witch in the first female pic, the second one is Rachel Nichols as Tamara :)

    @Jaccsy
    I don't expect too much goriness, Jaccsy. And if it does appear it will be understandable like in SPARTACUS, since the story really depicts the barbarian age :)

    you have about two months to make up your mind :)

    @Michael
    isn't it just? I thought the film would be some B category flick made more for DVD but this trailer really promises tones of visually stunning and extremely dynamic scenes!

  12. Looks pretty cool, first time I've seen the trailer and I'm impressed.
    I also loved Pathfinder, which got poor reviews.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've no idea why PATHFINDER got bad reviews. Or maybe I do, I blame fanboys who love to trash historical films since they intimidate their ignorance :) I loved that film, the idea of it and Karl off course :)

  14. Very, very cool posters for Conan. Excellent, detailed art work.

    ReplyDelete
  15. yep, besides IMMORTALS posters, probably the most beautiful ones this year!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I totally agree Dezzy, the IMMORTALS posters are gorgeous indeed. I'm not too interested in seeing Conan though, even though Jason Momoa is definitely a much better eye candy than Arnold!

  17. yep, I know you don't like this kind of epics, Flixy, although I'm more than sure you'd watched it if Butler went Conan :P

    ReplyDelete
  18. This looks promising!!
    I might see it but might not...depend on my mood ;) but I like the posters,look like video game

    ReplyDelete
  19. Conan looks better with every new trailer. So far, it exceeds my every expectations.

    Pathfinder was good in every aspect, except that it was black and white film. :)
