The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination, Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film that is extremely faithful to Robert Howard’s original works.
A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
Jason Momoa stars as Conan in this epic 3D action-adventure. Also starring Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan, CONAN THE BARBARIAN in 3D releases in theaters everywhere August 19th, 2011!
