Here’s the latest trailer for Conan the Barbarian, in which Jason Momoa, under the direction of Marcus Nispel, seeks to reanimate the cinematic vitality of Robert E. Howard‘s signature character. Arnold Schwarzenegger created the version many know and love, and he leaves some big shoes to fill. Previous trailers and pics have left us doubtful that it is really going to work. (But also hopeful for a positive outcome.) Now take a gander at the latest trailer, from the UK, in which a young Conan picks up a sword on his way to becoming 20-something Conan. See if this does the trick. Read More »

Here’s what you need to know about the new red-band trailer for Conan the Barbarian: there is a shot in which Conan (Jason Momoa) knocks out a horse with a giant chain. There is also a lot of blood, a total absence of plot, a little bit of almost safe for work sex, and the worst piece of electro-tinged cock rock to hit a trailer in months.

The first batch of official identification card photos for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra have made their way onto the interwebs. A bunch of previously unseen characters are featured. I have put together the image above which features the four new characters.
From left to right, Saïd Taghmaoui as Joe communications specialist Breaker, the Cobra Viper (a ground soldier, which is essentially the Cobra version of the Stormtrooper), third up is Joseph Gordon-Levitt as The Doctor (aka Cobra Commander), and fourth is Arnold Vosloo who plays Zartan, a master of disguise.
Is it just me or do these photos look horrible? When I first saw them I believed they must be fan creations. Gordon-Levitt can’t really have let them do THAT to him, could he? But it appears the photos are legit. You can check out all the information cards on HISSTANK.
