We’ve all seen the photos of Jason Momoa as the new Conan the Barbarian. Many people have had a lot to say about how the actor looks as he steps into the shoes of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who pretty much defined Conan in the popular imagination thanks to the 1982 film with which this new production shares a title.
Now here’s the first teaser trailer for the film, which shows Jason Momoa swinging a blade and uttering a line that, well, probably won’t quite earn a spot next to Arnie’s answer to the question ‘what is best in life?’ (“To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women.”) Watch it after the break.

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.

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 »

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 »

I was happy about the news that Jason Momoa (Stargate: Atlantis) had been cast as Conan in the new film by Marcus Nispel. He seems like he can act, and he’s got a look that will not only work for the part, but quickly differentiate this version from the Schwarzenegger original.
Now we’ve got a few pics of Momoa in costume and a handful of set images to give you an idea of what to expect from Conan. Read More »
