LEGEND OF CONAN Producer Chris Morgan Talks About Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Return as the Warrior King

by     Posted 1 year, 140 days ago

legend-of-conan-slice

We owe our thanks to screenwriter/producer Chris Morgan (Wanted), whose passion for bringing Conan the Barbarian back to the big screen also managed to convince Arnold Schwarzenegger to reprise the role. In the end, it was Morgan’s description of The Legend of Conan, as more of a “cultural catch-up” than a reboot, that got the 65-year-old Schwarzenegger interested in the project. The veteran action star has already appeared in both The Expendables films after leaving office and will next star in Kim Jee-woon’s actioner The Last Stand, followed by David Ayer’s drug enforcement flick, Ten; but The Legend of Conan offers something more than just a return to his former action-hero glory. Hit the jump to see what Morgan has in store for The Legend of Conan.

Just minutes after we reported on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s new look in David Ayer’s Ten, we get word that the former Governor will return to his roots in The Legend of Conan.  The reboot comes from Universal, which has worldwide rights on the film.  The studio launched the original film in 1982 with Schwarzenegger as Robert E. Howard’s mythic barbarian.  The property hit a bit of a snag with the 2011 reboot Conan the Barbarian with Jason Momoa at Millenium Films, but Universal has high hopes for the new project.  Hit the jump for more including the expected storyline of The Legend of Conan.

Last month, we reported that the Alamo Drafthouse would be spending this summer honoring the summer of 1982 by holding screenings of Conan the Barbarian, The Road Warrior, Rocky III, Poltergeist, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Thing, and TRON, with all the movies being presented in 35mm.  Tomorrow, a limited number of badges—priced at $80—will go on sale here at 11am CST and provide admission to all these movies.  The Drafthouse will also be selling tickets to the first movie in the series, Conan the Barbarian, which will play on May 11th.

In addition to the terrific movies that have already been announced, the Drafthouse has added 11 more movies to the summer series: Vice Squad, Escape 2000, The Sword and the Sorcerer, The Secret of Nimh, Pink Floyd: The Wall, Class of 1984, Friday the 13th: Part 3 in 3D, Halloween 3, Q: The Winged Serpent, The Dark Crystal, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and The Last Unicorn.  The badges won’t cover these movies, so you’ll have to buy tickets.  Hit the jump for the full press release, which includes info on when you can buy tickets for each movie (and you better come to Rocky III since we’re co-hosting it!).  We’ve also included a look at Dan McCarthy’s gorgeous E.T. posters, which will be sold at the E.T. screening with any leftovers being sold online).

Alamo Drafthouse Sends Us Back to the Summer of 1982; Collider to Co-Host Screening of ROCKY III

alamo-drafthouse-summer-of-1982-slice

The summer movie season keeps getting bigger but rarely does it get better.  There are always some standouts, but in 30 years time, will we have nine movies that will all be remembered as classics?  I’m not sure, but it’s only been done once before in the last 30 years, and that was in the summer of 1982.  From May through July, the world received (in chronological order) Conan the Barbarian, The Road Warrior, Rocky III, Poltergeist, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Thing, Blade Runner, and TRON.  Let that sink in for a moment.

The Alamo Drafthouse is paying tribute to the summer of 1982 by letting audiences relive it in the summer of 2012.  The Alamo will re-release the film on the same day that it was released in 1982, and a geek site will co-host a screening at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz in Austin.  So for example, we’re co-hosting the screening of Rocky III on May 25th.  Select films will have big events with special guests and new Mondo posters.  Hit the jump for all of the release dates along with Alamo’s trailer for the summer of 1982.

Top 10 Posters of 2011

by     Posted 2 years, 119 days ago

top-10-posters-2011-slice

The best movie posters come from Mondo, other art-boutiques, and individual artists who take their passion for a film and turn it into something that every fan has to own.  Studios don’t have that luxury.  They need to sell a movie to an audience that has no idea what they’re in for.  They need to find a way to appeal to everyone, or at least get their attention.  Usually studios go for the dull route of floating movie star heads and/or blue-orange color schemes.  My picks for the best studio-produced posters of 2011 were the posters that went beyond and tried to do something better.

97 Original Scores Up for Oscar; DRIVE and ATTACK THE BLOCK Ruled Ineligible

by     Posted 2 years, 121 days ago

As the 84th Academy Awards move closer, we’re starting to get a better sense of how things will pan out. We recently shared the 39 songs that will contend for the Best Original Song category, and now the Academy has announced the 97 original scores eligible for the Best Original Score award. AMPAS is notoriously picky when it comes to eligibility in this category, and as we feared the scores for both Drive and Attack the Block have been deemed ineligible. Also disappointing is the ineligibility of Alexandre Desplat’s mesmerizing score for The Tree of Life.

While it’s upsetting to see some of the year’s best work side-lined, there’s plenty to be happy about. I was a huge fan of Howard Shore’s work in Hugo and Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’s score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as The Chemical Brothers’ brilliant work in the criminally underseen Hanna. Hit the jump for the full list, as well as who I think will make the cut.

Ron Perlman and Leo Howard Talk CONAN THE BARBARIAN and HELLBOY 3

Ron Perlman Leo Howard CONAN THE BARBARIAN and HELLBOY 3 interview slice

After years in pre-production, including a well respected but unproduced John Milius draft, Conan The Barbarian returns to theaters this Friday with Marcus Nispel directing Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, as the titular warrior. Rose McGowan, Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols and Stephen Lang round out the cast of this 3D bloodbath.

Hemming closer to the fantastical Robert E. Howard books, this new Conan is stripped down and vicious. Recently, I sat down with Ron Perlman and up and coming tough guy/Disney kid Leo Howard to discuss their roles in the film. During the interview, we talked about playing an action hero, Howard’s impressive stunt work, the film’s complex scripting process and Perlman even teases us with plot threads for Hellboy 3.  Hit the jump to watch.

CONAN THE BARBARIAN Review

by     Posted 2 years, 248 days ago

conan-slice

A good Conan the Barbarian movie shouldn’t be that hard to make.  The character is simple.  He’s a buff, taciturn guy who caves in skulls and cuts his enemies in half with a gigantic sword.  This is Conan.  This is simple. And yet director Marcus Nispel has no idea what kind of Conan movie he wants to make.  Is it a good, old-fashioned sword-and-sorcery flick?  Is it a modern spin on the classic comic book?  Is it a campy action movie?  Is it a self-serious “realistic” drama?  Perhaps a better movie could have melded all of these elements together, but Conan the Barbarian is an absolute mess, and even worse, an absolute bore.

Rose McGowan Interview CONAN slice

After years in pre-production, including a well respected but unproduced John Milius draft, an aborted Red Sonja redux and a countless hours of fan casting, Conan The Barbarian returns to theaters this Friday with Marcus Nispel directing Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, as the titular warrior.  Rose McGowan, Rachel Nichols, Ron Perlman and Stephen Lang round out the cast of this 3D bloodbath.

Hemming closer to the fantastical Robert E. Howard books, this new Conan is stripped down and vicious. Recently, I sat down with McGowan to discuss her role as an evil priestess in the film. During our interview we discussed the joy of playing mean, why her Red Sonja film was put on hold, her character’s bizarre, but oddly sensuous appeal, the dangers of STDs in ancient times, and she gave us a tidbit on her upcoming film Fortune, where she might be playing a transvestite.  Hit the jump to watch.

Hemming closer to the fantastical Robert E. Howard books, this new Conan is stripped down and vicious. Recently, I sat down with Rachel Nichols to discuss her role as a pure blood missionary in the film. During our interview we discussed the benefits of being the only girl on set, the way that the story is built around her femininity, what it takes to win the heart of a barbarian and she gives us a little taste of what the new Alex Cross film, I, Alex Cross, starring Tyler Perry will look and feel like.  Hit the jump to watch.
