New CONAN THE BARBARIAN IN 3D Poster

Fandango unearth this nice looking CONAN THE BARBARIAN IN 3D. I'm still unsure of this film but being such a huge fan of the original I still have my doubts.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN IN 3D, starring Jason Momoa, Ron Perlman, Stephen Lang and Rose McGowan, follows Conan's quest across the continent of Hyboria, as he fights to avenge the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village.

See the entire poster after the Jump...


Synopsis:

“I live. I love. I slay…I am content.”

- Conan The Barbarian

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 …

New Rules At The Warner Bros. Booth At Comic-Con

If you have ever been to Comic-Con you know how crazy and out of control the Warner Bros. booth gets with all their awesome swag and autograph signings they do for their shows.

Looks like this year they are going to be following Comic-Con's official ticket distribution rules.

Ray Stevenson Cast As Firefly In G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes

Thor actor Ray Stevenson has been cast as villain Firefly in Paramount’s G.I. Joe 2: Cobra Strikes. The action movie, to be directed by Jon M. Chu, begins shooting in Louisiana at the end of summer and is slated for release in August 2012.


Stevenson will appear opposite Channing Tatum and Dwayne Johnson in the film, which is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and follows G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a hit in 2009.

Stevenson’s Firefly is a member of the villainous Cobra Organization and is known as a saboteur, ninja master and explosives expert.

Other than Tatum, Cobra Strikes will feature an entirely new cast; in addition to franchise newcomers Johnson and Stevenson, the film will include Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, RZA and D.J. Cotrona.

In this summer’s Thor, which has grossed more than $400 million worldwide, Stevenson played Volstagg, one of the Warriors Three. He will next be seen in Summit’s The Three Musketeers in the role of Porthos. The 3D feature is slated for relea…

Space Invaders To Invade The Theaters Soon

Get ready for the Space Invaders movie.

The classic 1980s arcade game from Taito and Midway, which is ranked as the top arcade game of all time by Guinness World Records, is heading to the big screen courtesy of producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Odd Lot Entertainment’s Gigi Pritzker.

The two have teamed up to option the rights and develop the project and are now on the hunt for a writer to come up with a story.

One of the first video games, Space Invaders is credited with taking the medium from a sideshow attraction to a mainstream obsession. The shooter game was technically released in 1978 but made its pop culture mark by the turn of the decade. It featured rows upon rows of aliens (or their ships) raining laser death upon a lone player who took cover behind slowly disintegrating blocks. There have been other rumored attempts to develop a film but none has gone anywhere.

With Space Invaders, the producers are facing an interesting challenge: The video game doesn’t have a built-in…

Warner Bros. Has Found "Undying Love"

Warner Bros. is diving into the deep pool of the vampire genre, picking up Undying Love, a comic book mini-series published by Image Comics.

Stephen L’Heureux and Benderspink, run by Chris Bender and J.C. Spink, are producing.

Created by Tomm Coker and Daniel Freedman, Love mixes up the traditional vampire lore with Chinese monster myths as well as the Hong Kong action genre.

The story centers on an ex-soldier who falls for a girl that happens to be a vampire. The only way the two can be together is if the man takes on the vampire who created her, which also means fighting an army of monsters in the Hong Kong underworld.

Coker and Freedman will write the script.

Jake Weiner is exec producing while Ford Gilmore will co-produce.

Benderspink, which recently renewed its deal at Warners sibling label New Line, is eyeing a fall start on the magician comedy Burt Wonderstone, which it is producing with Steve Carrell’s Carousel Prods.

It recently set up the comic book adaptation The Mighty at …

The Hobbit's Dwarves Are Here

Aaron Sorkin may have ditched Facebook but Peter Jackson definitely hasn't. The most recent status update from Middle-earth brings us our first glimpse of The Hobbit's dwarves - well, three of them at any rate - all kitted out for their unexpected journey.

While we wait for Peter Jackson's next hobbi-blogisode from the movie's Wellington set and the production's official bow at Comic-Con next month, this exciting taster of the dwarfish costume design should keep us tided over nicely.

See the entire picture after the Jump...



From left to right, the trio are Nori (ex-Orc Jed Brophy), Ori (Adam Brown) and Dori (Mark Hadlow). With Richard Armitage promising a deep delve into the world of the dwarves, expect a whole lot more from the 13 mini-men. Check out the current issue of Empire for the first on-set Hobbit coverage in the meantime.

Sequel To Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs Is In The Works

When it came out in 2009, "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs" quickly became part of a growing class of well-reviewed, successful animated movies made outside the Pixar machine. Now Sony Pictures Animation is looking to keep the weather system churning.

A sequel that has been in early development at the studio is getting a new push, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the writers of this weekend's release, "Horrible Bosses," coming on to write a draft of the script, according to a person familiar with the project who asked not to be identified.

Though the first film was loosely based on the 1970s children's book of the same title written by Ron and Judi Barrett, the sequel will be based on an original idea, not the Barretts' follow-up book, "Pickles to Pittsburgh," the person added.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller are not returning to direct the sequel; instead, the producers are set to hire a director who had worked in a lower-profile …
