The Conan reboot gets a release date

11.02.2010

Lest you thought the 3D craze was perhaps petering out, Lionsgate has set an August 19, 2011 release date for CONAN, making it the third film releasing on that date in 3D. The means all the new releases that weekend - including Disney's FRIGHT NIGHT and The Weinstein Co.'s SPY KIDS 4 - will all be in 3D.

Keeping in mind that theaters will very likely still be showing CAPTAIN AMERICA and THE SMURFS in 3D those weekends, that's a lot of demand for 3D screens. It's possible that one of these films will eventually back off but remember to mid-August of this year when SCOTT PILGRIM, THE EXPENDABLES and EAT, PRAY, LOVE all faced off on the same weekend (though none were in 3D).

As for CONAN, you can bet that this new release date will mean a big push for the film at next year's Comic-Con, which will take place about three weeks prior to its release. CONAN, directed by Marcus Nispel, stars Jason Momoa, Stephen Lang, Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan.

Conan...

Brought to us from the writers of 'Sahara', the Director of 'Pathfinder', & The Producers who originally wanted Brett Ratner. This movie has so much FAIL on it that its hilarious. But the director does make for good trailers. At least we have that.

Might Be Fun

I'm not expecting anything grand from this film. I'm taking it for what it is: a fun 90 minute escape from reality. I don't care if the story is bad or if the acting is cheesy. It's just another round with our favorite barbarian chopping and slicing his way to his ultimate quest one enemy at a time!

I've been crossing my fingers for this. The pics have all looked kick ass to me. That dude, regardless of his resume, LOOKS the way Conan is supposed to look. But I'll be shocked if this director and writer can pull off a real, kick ass Conan flick.

Tarsem/Conan?

Tarsem's got an undeniably great eye for stunning visuals. But I just don't see him pulling off a balls-out action movie like Conan requires.

I like the pics so far, Mamoa is great casting! I'll keep faith in the script writers and the director, allthough none of them has anything noteworthy under their belt!

I found it always hilarious when people take the most pathetic and useless "argument" to show the movie is gonna suck... Eyebrows.. Seriously? Who the fuck gives a fuck about stuff like that? Well.. you obviously do.
