Yes! It's finally here. Jason Momoa stars as Conan in the Lionsgate fantasy action movie CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Momoa is pitted against (literally I suppose) Stephen Lang (AVATAR) who plays the double bladed, parallel scimitar wielding Khalar Zym.

Here's the movie's synopsis:
The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination - in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds - Conan's exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film.

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.

Movie Details:
Director: Marcus Nispel
Writer: Thomas Dean Donnelly
Studio: Lionsgate
Cast: Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang
Release: August 19, 2011

I like the trailer. Wasn't sure what to expect from the limited exposure we have been given thus far, but I have been impressed. Will they deliver a better product than the Schwarzenegger led effort did? Thus far, I think so.

Have a look:
