Looks like Universal got the jump on everyone at the end of this past week by announcing a boatload of release dates. Others are falling in line to grab their own weekends, and so we’ve got new dates for Lionsgate’s 3D version of Conan, which now seems to be officially called Conan 3D, and Sony’s 21 Jump Street, the latter of which is being pushed back from a 2011 date and had previously been dated as a ‘Winter 2012′ film.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
We’ve seen a lot of photos from Conan, the Marcus Nispel-directed reboot of the film incarnation of Robert E. Howard‘s storied character. Many of the photos have been, well, not so well received. Which is why I was surprised to cast eyes on the new batch of images, which make the film look far more rich and, at the very least, visually interesting than what we’ve seen before. Read More »
At a certain point (that is, just about now) there won’t be much point to posting new photos from Conan. Until we get shots of the supporting cast like Stephen Lang, seems like we’ll just see a parade of images featuring Jason Momoa and a variety of grimaces. Not that I’d expect too much else, but it’s a question of diminishing returns.
So, until we get those photos of the supporting cast, here are two new shots of Momoa, from the film’s official Facebook page, via Bleeding Cool. I’m still curious about the film, but at this point I need to see a trailer to be sure the movie will feature more than Momoa roaming around a relatively empty landscape, swinging his sword at the air. (Though wouldn’t that be kind of great? Like Garfield Minus Garfield, only with Conan instead of Jon Arbuckle.) Read More »
In the past weeks, a couple photos of Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) in action in the Marcus Nispel-directed Conan have leaked online.And today we bring you another new image of Conan in action. Hit the jump for the full production photo.

Briefly: Well, this is more like it. I’m sure there will still be a flurry of comments that this photo of Jason Momoa in action as Conan the Barbarian looks too skinny. But I see this and just get a sense of power and fury — looks like a reasonable vision of Conan to me. It’s certainly the best thing I’ve seen from the production so far.
‘The production,’ of course, is the Marcus Nispel-directed Conan, starring Momoa, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard and Rachel Nichols. The image was either scanned or photographed from a Spanish magazine, which is why it looks a little odd.
See the image in full after the break. And, just in case you didn’t see it earlier this week, after the image I re-present the very entertaining Conan the Barbarian: The Musical. Read More »
