Conan grimaces and rides in some new pics from the movie

07.16.2010

One word instantly came to mind when I first saw that picture above: Dio.

I don't know how much of Marcus Nispel's CONAN will resemble a heavy metal album cover, but I think I need to see it in motion before I can finally decide how well beefy new star Jason Momoa is suited to play Robert E. Howard's infamous Cimmerian. The sword-swinging death machine will probably have a sizeable presence at Comic Con, so we should hear some real buzz then. For now, some pics.

The movie finds the notorious warrior wandering the Hyborian Age, battling a ruler (Stephen Lang) who seeks a queen whose blood will bring life to the demonic minions of a long-lost god.

What is good in life?

Holy, bring the WAmbulance around we've got a bunch of babies here. Since when do three pictures make a movie? (Also he isn't wearing eye shadow, it's actually just a shadow when you look at it full size.) They really should post a Rachel Nichols pic though.

Not sure if I'm getting Dio album cover from the first image, but I guess it's in line with Conan's pulp fantasy book roots. More Boris Vallejo than RJD album.

SyFy or die!!

This looks like a SyFy original movie or something. It screams tv production value. Anyone remember that Kull movie with Kevin Sorbo??? I guess no one learned from that debacle.

Looks like crap...

call John Milius!!!!! I liked Niespel's Texas chainsaw massacre, I didn't like Pathfinder (even though it was beautiful to look at) and I hated his Friday the 13th. Difficult to judge a movie with 3 pics, but that guy doesn't look like a "believable" Conan for me...

he has the look facially, but he still needs to be bigger. not necessarily arnold big, BUT almost as big. in order for the character to have "super" human strength in his world he needs to look like he could snap necks with ease and break chains. so this would lead to a more savage look, then the ones posted. the lack of a sinewy look cries epic fail. maybe they should have gotten "kill me" adrian brody? at least they spray painted a six pack on him in one scene. CROM!

I just can't get over how ugly Momoa is. And Stephen Lang is the villain. Dear GOD. I could watch a "Deadliest Warrior" marathon on Spike TV and have way more fun than I would with this hilarity.

havent we grown out of this crap yet? 300 was, to me, the perfect final "hoorah" of these tired "ancient half-naked warriors who spend most of the movie looking badass" genre. it may have some cool monsters but all and all i predict itll be garbage. i mean, come on, LOOK AT THE BOOTS.

I think a lot of people think . . .

. . . that Conan should only look like Arnie. In every pic I've seen, this guy has looked more like a Frazetta rendition of Conan than Arnie ever did. Also, if I remember correctly, this guy has some heavy, dark lashes and that isn't eye makeup. My wife used to watch some dumb show with him in it, but I can't recall the title. All this said, I'm still not getting my hopes up for this at all.

Does anyone else thinks that this Conan looks a little too emo? Buddy eye shadow does not equal manly. However, even with the word of buzz i am determined to wait it out and eventually see it in theaters.

I can tell already this will be a pile of shit. The guy looks half assed and is obviously trying to look emo.

This isnt supposed to be "Conan the black eye makeup, greasy haired punk rocker"

ok..enough with the pics...

i know i was sort of defending this project in terms of waiting for a trailer, but for fucks sake, enough with the shitty pics. this sort of pr is aweful and only builds people's expectation of a project only to disappoint them when the trailer airs. its not even 'stolen' pics, release a trailer soon or this may end up in file 13 next to mutant chronicles.

I'm gonna give it a chance and see a trailer before I take a dump on the project. Doesn't really take much to be a replacement for Conan as it is and the 2nd movie was horrible.

Could be worse. Imagine if they did a Beastmaster remake *shivers*

Er... he kinda looks like the Crow... or Wolverine as pencilled by Adam Kubert (the brows man!). Maybe he should've been a villain in Prince of Persia?

This movie is doomed to fail on so many levels it isn't even funny.

Can't wait for this film to come and go, that way 10-20 years from now we can get a re-boot with some REAL talent at the helm.

This movie is going to be so sad, it looks like a syfy made for t.v movie for christ's sake. Wouldn't it be cool if they redo the scene from the original one when Arnold has sex with the witch and gives her a orgasm so good that she was forced to show her true form and then Arnold throws her into the fireplace. Does anyone remember that?

The two shots from the film are cool, but is that top over-photoshopped pic really official? I thought it was fan art made by some russian guy?
