CONAN THE BARBARIAN
USA: Wide Release
We’ve finally reached August 19, 2011, and the opening night of JASON MOMOA’s Conan the Barbarian!
Here in our Blog and also in our LJ Companion, we’ve been reporting Jason’s interviews and appearances, as well as presenting trailers and posters, that have centered around this break-out role for our Stargate actor (you can see the most recent of these posts on Jason’s page in our Beyond the Event Horizon feature). We’re proud that he’s made such an impression that he was chosen as Rising Star of 2011 and through it all has remained firmly grounded.
Conan the Barbarian will be showing in both 2D and 3D. Before that happens in New York, Momoa will have the honor of ringing the Closing Bell at NASDAQ! There are lots of ways to witness this event, so visit Market Watch for the details.
Here’s a brief summary of the movie’s plot, taken from the Facebook info page: “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.”
Momoa himself has written a script for a sequel, which will be made, he says, only if this movie is a success. Here’s hoping that fans of Conan will join us and become fans of Jason and that all of us will see his star rise even higher!
