Featuring star Jason Momoa standing atop a mountain of skulls — an homage to the classic “Conan” imagery of celebrated artist Frank Frazetta — the new poster is animated to reveal tumultuous skies above Conan and the ever-so-slight motion of his robes in the wind. The image is also features an ominous audio track that you can turn off in the lower-right corner.
The debut of the motion poster was accompanied by the launch of the new “Conan The Barbarian” website at conanthebarbarianin3d.com.
(Note to “Conan” marketing team: Love the image and cool animation, but auto-play audio is never a good idea.)
“Conan The Barbarian” is scheduled to hit 3-D and 2-D theaters in August.
