The “Conan the Barbarian” remake drops in theaters August 19, but images and footage from the Lionsgate release have been few and far between, at least for some fan’s tastes.
Outside of a few images of the 8-packed new barbarian, Jason Momoa, and a quite literal teaser trailer, they’re have few details of the Cimmerian’s celluloid return. Not even a snippet of a decapitation or sword battle, or a pic of Rose McGowan or Rachel Nichols in skimpy loincloths.
So it was a pleasant surprise to receive this killer pic in my mailbox showing Stephen Lang in full makeup as Khalar Zym. Zym is the murdering villain in this dance who torments Conan in the pic. Check out the killer hairline on Lang, who has such a distinctive glare he’s still easily recognizable despite the heavy makeup. Lang keeps himself in phenomenal shape, which should serve him well in the fight scenes between Zym and Conan.
“Conan The Barbarian” rolls out in theaters nationwide in 3-D, on August 19th.
