By Crom, it is good to see Conan the Barbarian as reimagined by the great fantasy artist Brom.
As imagined by Conan, it would be called Lil' Thrones, and it would be raunchy and violent and probably wonderful. Check out the (obviously tongue-in-cheek) musical number, complete with deadpan George R. R. Martin intro, below. Valar morghulis, kids!
It's an eclectic mix of goodness in this week's look at all things Crowdfunding. We've got a ridiculously cool looking boardgame based on Conan The Barbarian, the continuation of the original Star Trek through fan films, and a pen and paper RPG with what is possibly my favourite name for anything ever.
On a very special segment of Conan, late-night TV host Conan O'Brien didn't just have the voice of Sterling Archer, H. Jon Benjamin, on his couch to promote the new season of Archer. He actually became an animated Archer-style character and got involved in the spy's shoot-em-up hijinks.
"Hold X to pay respects? What does that mean? That's crazy! Is there a button for, 'I'm here because I thought I might meet somebody?'"
Good actors know the value of a good villain; from Richard III to Dracula, some times the best bad guys are much more interesting than the heroes. Some times… but not always. Here are eight incredibly talented actors who completely wasted their talents as silly cinematic scoundrels.
The second half of The Walking Dead's (pretty excellent) season 4 begins on this Sunday evening, but last night talk show host Conan O'Brien welcomed the show back with a full-on undead extravaganza, complete with zombie lesbians making out, Daryl singing, and the greatest cold open in Conan history.
You would think that having the powers of a radioactive spider, or wearing a cape to a fight, would qualify as crazy enough for comic books. Not so. Comics delve into alternate worlds that show different sides of their superheroes - nutbag, wacko-smacko sides. Take a look at the looniest alternate reality versions…
Harrison Ford was on last night's Conan, and the talk show host, as desperate for Star Wars: Episode VII news as any one, tried to bribe the actor with $1,000 in cash for details about the much-anticipated movie. Ford took it, and then he spilled everything he knew about the movie!
A few weeks ago at the comic shop, I stumbled across a new Conan series. But not just any Conan series. Dark Horse is adapting the only Conan novel, The Hour of the Dragon, over two six-issue runs. I had to check it out. So is it any good? Yeah, it’s really good.
As you walk through modern life, you might need a no-nonsense voice to guide you away from self-pity, doubt, and the secret rites of blood donation volunteers. In By Crom! artist Rachel Kahn imagines that she is in constant consultation with the pulp hero Conan the Cimmerian.
Yesterday we premiered the first taste of our amazing exclusive roundtable interview with legendary movie poster artist Drew Struzan, director Frank Darabont, and Being Human's Sam Witwer, with an update on Darabont's Godzilla.
Some people look to religion or well-thought-out systems of ethics when choosing the rules to live their life by — and some people are more comfortable relating to pop culture. Science fiction and fantasy movies provide plenty of wise mentors, who tell the heroes exactly what they needed to know.
In a graceful and funny column for Quora, screenwriter Sean Hood — whose most recent project was Conan the Barbarian — explains what it feels like to write a movie that tanks at the box office. He compares the excitement (and occasionally self-deluded expectations) as similar to joining a political campaign. He writes:
I've been thinking about the books I enjoy the most and it turns out that all of them have what I'd call "sticky" characters. By that I mean that when I look back on the book, the thing that jumps out at me first is the characters - not the plot, the prose, the theme, the worldbuilding or underlying ideas, but the…
The remake of Conan the Barbarian hits theaters today, and you've got your meat skewers and leather nutslinger ready to go. The problem? Conan the Barbarian is a cult classic that has already spawned a series of bad sequels and imitators, and unfortunately it has now spawned a bad remake as well. But you need…
Stephen Lang has become the go-to guy for gung-ho older soldiers, from Col. Quaritch in Avatar to the time-traveling colonist Nathaniel Taylor in Terra Nova. But maybe the most intense role he's played yet is the evil warlord Khalar Zym in the new Conan the Barbarian.
Two more actors join Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Hugh Jackman talks Real Steel, while Rose McGowan discusses the new Conan. Eureka's animated Christmas special adds a BSG admiral. Plus promo photos from the new Judge Dredd movie!
