I have been a fan of Robert E Howard’s writings since the mid 1970s, and so I am always intrigued when some new REH related items come along.
Also, somewhat controversially in REH fandom, I really enjoyed the original Conan movie (Conan The Barbarian, I baulk at the thought of the second movie, Conan The Destroyer, which was basically horrible) and Solomon Kane. So I have been following the developments of the new Conan movie with some interest.
Just recently the publicity campaign seems to have ramped up a notch, there is an article in the new issue of Empire magazine, and also just released is a Motion Poster, which really catches a Frazetta-esque kind of atmosphere. The Motion Poster takes a few seconds to start, so be patient…
Things are really looking interesting for this movie, I doubt it will live up to expectations, but one never knows….
