The new adaptation of Conan The Barbarian has received its first poster, along with a 3D motion version. IGN pointed out that the artwork is a nod to Frank Frazetta's original Conan artwork. New and original artwork attached. Link to 3D poster also included. What does everyone think?

FYI - teaser trailer released. What does everyone think? I'm personally excited for Conan. From what I have read, they tried to make it more in line with the original Conan books by Robert E. Howard. The quote at the end of the teaser is directly from one of Howard's books.

It looks far more gritty than the original version - which was a bit campy - so I'm hoping they go for drama and action. I haven't read the books myself, but if they take things seriously, and audiences approve, there is plenty of material for a new franchise. 03/21/2011

Just saw the new trailer and I don't see much of anything new.  Conan swinging a sword in slow-mo and some woman doing voiceover just like the teaser. I may wait for the dvd on this one, or not see it at all cause of it being a re-make.  If I do end up seeing it on the big screen, it WON'T be in stupid fake 3D. 05/05/2011

I also caught the trailer. I will be seeing it in the theaters. I think Jason Momoa is perfect for the role, especially after seeing him on Game of Thrones.  I'm also thinking that the 2011 special effects might benefit the sword and sorcery story.

The original Conan movie back in '82 is kind of a classic to my generation.  I have hopes this new adaptation could be good.  They could get it completely wrong though too, bad story, only special effects and action. 07/03/2011

@Nick, another Red Band clip released for Conan. Did you catch it? See below:

This clip is definitely the best thing they released so far. If this is what Conan is doing as a kid, I can't f'ing wait to see what goes down when he is grown up.
