Motion Portrait for CONAN THE BARBARIAN

by     Posted 3 years, 89 days ago


Hey remember that awesome Conan the Barbarian motion poster we showed you a couple months back where he was standing on top of a mountain of skulls?  Okay, now imagine if that image was lame and crappy and you actually had to move the frame of the poster just to see Conan (Jason Momoa) swinging his sword at a guy and blending into the background.  This is called a “motion portrait” and it’s a trend that shouldn’t catch on.  However, if you’re super hard-up for new Conan stuff, you can check out the portrait after the jump [Warning: it has sound].  Conan the Barbarian opens in 3D on August 19th. [Update: Lionsgate has informed us that this is a sneak peek at the website that is relaunching tonight.  Not exactly sure how that makes the motion portrait any better.]

    I agree. That’s kinda stupid. Momoa does look good as Conan, though.

    It’s just a thing from the Conan website, not like an actual poster. I don’t really love the whole “illusion of motion by putting things on different plains” effect, but I hardly think this is worthy of the bile you’re spewing at it.

    Reminds me of the old Lighthouse game, it had the same type of atmosphere and movement style.

    I found it kind of obnoxious myself, but a lot of people liked the eerieness it brought to the game, its a decent gimmick I guess but certainly not something that should ever replace posters.

    Momoa is awesome in ‘Game of Thrones’. Definitely has me excited to see his Conan.

    Thank you for another informative web site. The place else may just I get that kind of info written in such a perfect approach? I have a venture that I’m just now running on, and I’ve been on the glance out for such information.
