Hack/Slash

One comic book-to-movie adaptation that many have been excited about is Hack/Slash, based on the comic of the same name created by Tim Seeley and Stefano Caselli. Unfortunately there’s been some delays and complications in getting the project moving, and so those who are excited have had to wait impatiently for movement.

Now it appears things are picking up for the Relativity Media title, though whether you will still be excited or not is worthy of discussion.

It’s being reported that Marcus Nispel, the German director known for brutally violent remakes like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, and this past summer’s Conan the Barbarian, has been brought in to deliver Hack/Slash to the masses. He replaces Fredrick Bond, who was previously attached to direct.

Movie Review: Conan The Barbarian

Conan The BarbarianConan The Barbarian
Directed by Marcus Nispel
Starring: Jason Momoa, Leo Howard, Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Ron Perlman
Release Date: August 19, 2011

Director Marcus Nispel has most undoubtedly taken on quite the challenge in the new Conan The Barbarian film. Consider to begin with, the original Robert E. Howard stories, followed by the additional work by subsequent authors over the years. Moreover, there’s the legend of Conan depicted in comics, perhaps most memorably in The Savage Sword Of Conan. But the biggest challenge facing Nispel is probably the unforgettable film version portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and directed by John Milius. The 1980’s Conan pervaded mainstream pop culture and left quite an impact, and the original film is still considered by some fans with reverence.

Having said all that, Nispel along with the writers of the latest Conan The Barbarian have released a film that will most likely please the fans of the Conan books and comics, but may disappoint those whose only experience with the Cimmerian warrior has been through Schwarzenegger’s depiction. The new movie, for all intents and purposes, is an origin tale and begins with narration from (believe it or not) Morgan Freeman. Conan is born on the battlefield, in a gruesome birth sequence that would easily be the fastest Caesarian procedure by sword captured on film. He is raised under the watchful eye of his father, Corin (Ron Perlman), learning the ways of the warrior and the tradition of the Cimmerian Barbarians.

Conan The Barbarian

And for this one, you control what you seen.

The studio has released a new, interactive, red-band trailer for the Jason Momoa-starring film. Check it out here below.

Watch Now: Gruesome ‘Conan The Barbarian’ Red Band Trailer

A new red band trailer for the upcoming Marcus Nispel remake, Conan the Barbarian, has been released, and it’s much more along the lines of what people want to see.

The first full trailer was intriguing enough, but the original 1982 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie was about a warrior tearing his way to vengeance against the man who killed his people, and with this new trailer it appears Nispel hasn’t held back on going all-out on the bloody revenge thing. That’s all we really care about with this movie, correct?

You can see the new Conan the Barbarian red band trailer by continuing on now. Be warned: because it is red, the trailer has plenty of NSFW goodies going on.

Watch Now: Full-Length Trailer For ‘Conan The Barbarian’

Conan The Barbarian

The first full-length trailer for Conan the Barbarian is now online.

Watch it here below.

The new movie, directed by Marcus Nispel, is based on the universe created by Robert E. Howard and is a remake of the 1982 film that starred Arnold Schwarzenegger as the title barbarian. The teaser trailer released last month left a lot to be desired, but now the longer theatrical version shows that this movie actually has potential (now whether you can stand remakes in general is another thing).

Jason Momoa plays the title role here and at first, I wasn’t sure if he was the right person to wield the blade, but he’s won me over, especially after seeing the actor recently in HBO’s new series Game Of Thrones.
