Director: Marcus Nispel
Fan-blimmin-tastic! It’s taken long enough but finally we have a remake of the swords and sandals ridiculousness that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name back in the ’80s.
Starring Jason Momoa in the title role, he cuts quite a figure baring his chest at wrong-doers, as this massive 3D action epic sees Conan turning a personal vendetta into a mythical battle against massive monsters, humungous rivals and all manner of obstacles to reach his goal and save the nations of Hyboria from a supernatural evil. This is really what it’s all about.
Jason Momoa will already be familiar to fans of the fantasy and sci fi genres having recently been seen as the barbarian leader Khal Drogo in the critically acclaimed Game Of Thrones TV series, and as Ronon Dex in Stargate:Atlantis.
Joining him on this epic 3D big screen quest are Ron Perlman and Rose McGowan, as well as Rachel Nichols and Stephen Lang. Bring your own plastic sword to the cinema.
Released 26 August
Showing at Odeon and Cineworld
