Starring

Jason Momoa

Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Said Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman

The colossal legend that is CONAN THE BARBARIAN is back this Summer.

Having thrived and evolved for eight decades in the public imagination – in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small – Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before. Shot in 3D, the reimagining of one man’s mythical battle for revenge is finally here in this Epic action-adventure film.

A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realises he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Deftly adapted from the original works of Robert E. Howard and faithful to the mythology and psychology of his iconic character, CONAN THE BARBARIAN stars Jason Momoa, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Said Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman. The film is directed by Marcus Nispel, and written by Thomas Dean Donnelly & Joshua Oppenheimer and Sean Hood.

Funcom’s award-winning and critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online game Age of Conan announces new content that will tie together the game and the upcoming movie Conan the Barbarian.

Set 20 years after the movie storyline, an epic new adventure pack – ‘The Savage Coast of Turan’ finds players being sent by Conan, now King of Aquilonia, to aid his old ally Artus. The new adventure pack includes but is not limited to content from the movie, and allows players to follow epic storylines in Conan’s realm.

“We have worked closely with the Funcom creative team since 2003 and carefully crafted a unique look and feel for Conan’s world,” says Conan the Barbarian Producer and Paradox CEO Fredrik Malmberg. “Many of the concepts, locations and designs from the game development were utilized by the film team for consistency, and we are thrilled that many elements of the film, distributed by Lionsgate in the UK, will feel familiar to the Age of Conan players.”

Slated for an August release, Conan the Barbarian tells the tale of Conan and his adventures across Hyboria. The new adventure pack launches players on exciting adventures, as they help Artus unravel the conspiracy and plots surrounding the city of Ardashir in Turan. The pack adds all new encounters, the massive new area of Ardashir, new dungeons and raids as well as new armour sets and monsters that moviegoers can already observe in the recently released theatrical movie trailer.
