Here is the first poster for the Conan the Barbarian movie that will be released in August. The film directed by Marcus Nispel (Pathfinder, Friday the 13th) will be a fresh take on the character created by Robert E. Howard. I don’t know why every movie has be in 3D, a character as badass as Conan doesn’t need 3D. As prep for this film over the spring, I recommend the Dark Horse Comic series based on the character. Artwork is incredible and the writing is exceptional, very faithful adaptations of some of Howard’s original stories.
