Conan the Barbarian carves up his enemies in the new poster

05.09.2011

If' you watched the new trailer (which you can find further down), you've probably already decided whether you're going to accept beefy new star Jason Momoa in the role of Robert E. Howard's infamous Cimmerian warrior in the reboot of CONAN THE BARBARIAN.

Should you need further convincing (one way or the other), IGN has premiered the new poster for the 3D retelling from director Marcus Nispel (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE).

It does seem like a fitting scene for a painted Frazetta or Jusko CONAN comic/magazine cover (even if it sorta looks like he's wading through the trenches of WWI). Click below to see it in full hugeness.

Extra Tidbit: Momoa also plays a hulking shirtless warrior on HBO's "Game of Thrones" series, although all he's really done so far is ride either a horse or his hot new wife.

That's a badass poster. And I still don't understand why people are bashing this as a remake. The Conan character existed long before Arnold's film. I, for one, have been waiting a long time to see my favorite barbarian in another film. And last I heard, they were shooting this film for an R rating. Which means, at the very least, we'll get an R-rated DVD. Good enough for me.

Another decent poster + this "Conan" reminds me of the Barry Windsor Smith version of the character ---> Marvel Comics circa 1970-'73 issue run artist.

Look, I'm a huge fan of the original, but the fact is that Momoa looks much more like the Conan I imagine when I read the comics or stories. Physically, the guy is perfect...so I'm goning to give this the benefit of the doubt. What I REALLY want to see is the Death Dealer

Mamoa is more spot on to the character, and he can read lines without a thick austrian accent! And he's actually got a "panther-like build" as described

I plan on giving this movie a try, but not expecting much. I've read that it will be a hard R, so here's to hoping to see Rachel Nichols boobs. ... I'll maybe even settle for side boob.

But if it turns out people's comments below are true about it being PG13, then I'll be saving my 12 dollars.

face it, the guy looks more like Conan than Ahnuld did. If youre a fan of the Comics, you would see the resemblance is uncanny. Actually getting amped for this flick...

More Ahnold Conan fans than actual Conan fans

Great poster. Too bad this articles talkback is full of people ignorant about the character. Talking about Ahnolds Conan (which really missed the mark coming down to the history of the character)like it's the original source material when the f'ing character is 70 years old.

If it's not going to be a hard R, why release it in August? That's when studios push the more hard edged films.

Nice poster but nothing else I have seen from this movie gets me interested or sold on Momoa. Conan needs to be badass and nothing shows me we're getting that.I hope it surprises me.

The poster is alright, but that trailer makes it look goofy.

Still waiting on rating confirmation. Fuck an R-rated DVD. That's no motherfucking certainty even if the footage exists. I want blood, tits, and bush up in this motherfucka and I want it on the big screen. PG-13 apologists can fondle my balls.

On the fence.

As a huge Conan, Arnold, and Robert E. Howard fan I disagree with everyone jumping on the wagon for Momoa as Conan. Arnold looked more the part, beside not having jet black hair, than Jason. Momoa I think is a little too small and looks more from the Mediterranean than the North but we will see how his take on the character. The trailer looked a little cheesy. I have a drawing of Conan from the comics right behind my computer screen hanging on the wall and he does not look like Conan that much

Until I see 'Rated R' on the trailers or posters, I won't be giving this thing any of my time or money.

to DaForce: If I'm not mistaken, there were some naked tits on set in a few photos. Those usually equate to R ratings.
Anyway, I finally found one thing I like about this movie: Conan's costume. It's pretty cool. It feels multicultural and simple at the same time. But that's it. I don't like anything else. Well actually, does anyone know what the sword looks like? 'Cause if it's the same design as the old one, then that's 2 things I like about this movie. Right now I'm pretending the sword in

Right now I'm pretending the sword in the logo is just Conan's temporary weapon; something he stole from a jackass who was out of his depth.

Tits in photos don't exactly mean that they will make the final cut. We've all seen movies that were supposed to be R edited to PG-13, and then later released on DVD as a 'unrated director's cut'. So like I said before, until I see an R rating on posters and the trailers, I won't be wasting my time on this one.

Conan looks like this summers Clash of the Titans. It will be an ok flick but nothing fantastic. As for the tidbit: He will only have one memorable scene this season as the horselord. You'll enjoy what he does to Viserys

Unless you have Aja or Neil Marshall or someone directing from an original script...a genuinely great Conan movie of the caliber of the Milius/Stone/Arnold original will never be made.

Finally someone put into words what the trailer made me think. I want to see this, but there's no way that it will beat the original.
