Yeah, it sounds more like something from ‘Buffy, the Vampire Slayer‘ show than ‘Conan the Barbarian‘, but it gives us a good idea of what to expect and how low to set those expectations. Jason Momoa ain’t no Arnold.
Lionsgate is looking to have another crappy year from the looks of the teaser trailer for ‘Conan the Barbarian‘ the lastest movie remake that never needed to be remade. These remakes are getting to feel like the studios are just spitting in the movie goers faces now with box office attendance continually dropping from year to year. Naturally the big corps that own the studios just get to write off these loses for the bad movie and blame online piracy. This teaser doesn’t really tease aside from making us make fun of the really bad dialogue and overuse of smoke to make us guess which characters are coming back. All the feedback we’re getting is ‘who cares’, and our sources over at the ‘Gate’ have informed us that Arnold won’t be making a cameo, and he’s lucky not to show his face in this mess.
Millenium is reportedly claming that the Conan remake is so good that they’re already developing a sequel, but as for those of us who know the biz side well, developing doesn’t mean anything except free money for the producers if they are still lucky enough to get a development deal at the studio. See what you all think, but since Rose McGowan seems to be taking any movie thrown her way, I’m not giving it much hope and our internal sources over at Lionsgate have been spot on.
