First Look At Conan The Barbarian

I thought this was a joke until I actually saw the pictures. Really? You're serious about this? Okay then. Your funeral.
So imdb has revealed the teaser poster and first images of Jason Momoa as Conan the Barbarian in Marcus Nispel's adaptation the iconic warrior character. The film is said to mostly follow the character's origins from it's collection of 1950's short stories on the tale of Conan the Cimmerian and his adventures across the continent of Hyboria on a quest to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village.
There are two reasons why this film is not going to work. Number 1, the director Marcus Nispel hasn't had a single likable film in his resume. He's done the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the remake of Friday The 13th and Pathfinder. Guess what? All of them were shitty films.
Next are the writers. Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, who's credits include Sahara and A Sound of Thunder. Yeah.... boring films.
The only thing I'm looking forward to see is Rachel Nichols and Rose McGowan. These two girls are unbelievably hot and have a track record for taking off their clothes in films. And being that this is a movie where people walk around scantily clad, this should be one fine piece of cinema.

Conan The Barbarian premieres in August 2011.
