CONAN THE BARBARIAN is returning to the big screen in 3D in Nu Image/Millennium's retelling of Robert E. Howard's classic tale. The marketing is now officially under way to promote the summer release. Scroll down below for a nifty little motion poster for the flick. A trailer is expected later this month. Here's the plot crunch:
To avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his Cimmerian village, Conan goes on a quest to find and kill the sadistic warlord responsible. However, this warlord, Khalar Zym, is on his own quest to find an elusive young woman, Tamara, the key to an enigmatic ritual of resurrection. When Conan abducts Tamara and uses her as bait, he is pursued by armies, besieged by monsters and led to a site of primeval magic and human sacrifice.
The film is directed by Marcus Nispel (FRIDAY THE 13TH, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE) off a script by Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer and Sean Hood. It stars Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, Rachel Nichols, Ron Pearlman, Rose McGowan (below) and Bob Sapp. You'll be able to catch the action on August 19.
