Conan The Barbarian had it’s premiere last night in LA and by all accounts this is in no way related to the original 1982 version starring Arnold Schwarzenger and he doesn’t star in it either. It’s being billed as a 3D Sword and Sorcery offering and would probably fit into the “Fantasy” genre. I would also add it’s a male torso spectacular if that’s your thing! Jason Momoa plays the lead as Conan and was present at the premiere along with Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan who also star. The film is directed by Marcus Nispel. Full arrivals list at foot of this article. Gone with Rachel Nichols as it’s been getting a bit brunette city on here lately!
After his father is murdered and village destroyed, Conan ventures into an unforgiving world where he survives as a thief, pirate, and warrior. On his path of wanton adventure and women, Conan chances upon the warlord responsible for his tribe’s destruction. As he tracks Khalar Zym, Conan battles monsters, Zym’s henchmen, and Marique, a powerful witch. Courtesy Wiki.
Take a look at this Guardian article that had me in stitches comparing the 1982 Conan with this latest release. Which is better? One for the girls as there are plenty of male torsos? The Guardian Conan the Barbarian 1982 v 2011
Bet you can’t wait, when is the release date? The film will be first released in France and Belgium on August 17, 2011 and then in the United States, Canada and Spain on August 19, Switzerland on August 21 and the United Kingdom on August 26.
