Meet the new Conan.
 
http://a323.yahoofs.com/ymg/ymoviesb...s3EsEDMpgyt36W

Before he was the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger was Conan the Barbarian. The 1982 film wasn't in the same league as some of Ah-nold's bigger hits, but it remains a cult favorite. Today, the first trailer for the remake, starring the formidible Jason Momoa in the title role, hit the Web.

Momoa, who will receive CinemaCon's Rising Star of 2011 Award, may be best known for his work on "Stargate: Atlantis" and "Baywatch." Several years ago, Momoa and Lisa Bonet made news after they named their child Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. Momoa's mother later explained that Nakoa means "warrior."

Should Momoa's version of "Conan the Barbarian" be a hit, interest in the actor with intimidation to burn is sure to rise. Indeed, he's already surging in the Search box. Over the past seven days, online lookups for "jason momoa" have flexed their muscles, jumping 44%.

You can check out the new trailer for "Conan the Barbarian" below. The film is scheduled to hit theaters this August.

As trailers go, that was pretty weak.

I hope the film isn't a disappointment.

Pretty weak for a first look.

The pic looks more like a shot from Prince of Persia. The trailer looks like a teaser for a film coming out a year from now, not this summer. No real detail, shadowy generic scenes. Odd.

Looked like a Direct to DVD hit!

Oh, and I clicked on the thread from the lounge and thought it was going to be about a new zany, wild-haired, late night talk show host.

I don't know how good an actor Momoa is but he looks the part more than Arnold did. Though he obviously does not have Arnold's physique.

You are such a negative piece of shit. I hate all your posts.

Conan was Arnold's best movie. Chick in that movie was KC native. SM east grad or something like that.

I'm skeptical. I probably saw the original 20 times as a kid. But, hell, I'll give it a shot.

A few years ago I got a good deal on the Conan series (see below) and bought it. Never have gotten around to watch any of it. Has anyone watched it?

Probably. It was really cheap, so "what the heck!"

I really liked that actor in Gladiator with Russell Crowe, so maybe it'll be a fun ride.

Let us know! :)

Thanks. I couldn't place his face, and it was bugging the hell out of me.
