Everyone knows that a barbarian is only as good as the sword he carries. And everybody's favorite Cimmerian, Conan (Jason Momoa), is known to carry one big huge sword—as you can see in these 13 new gritty pics straight from
a Frazetta painting the upcoming Conan the Barbarian reboot.
In this batch of cool new pics, there's a lot of Jason Momoa to see since he plays the titular character (incidentally, he was also last seen playing another barbarian king on HBO's Game of Thrones—Khal Drogo, we hardly knew ye ... with your clothes on); but we also have some nice shots of Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang as well as an almost unrecognizable Rose McGowan.
Oh and yeah! We also have our fave sci-fi and fantasy go-to guy, actor Ron Perlman, who plays Conan's dad, Corin. And would you look at that? He has a sword, too! Guess it's true the apple doesn't fall far from the tree after all.
Marcus Nispel's Conan the Barbarian is coming to a theatre near you in 3D, 2D and all that jazz, on August 19th 2011. We're going. Are you?
