Conan The Barbarian

Every movie, television show, band, and even random memes has a Facebook page nowadays. So how do you stand out from the pack? CONAN THE BARBARIAN is hoping to get the geekosphere talking and “liking” with their latest giveaway: a trip for two to this year’s Comic-Con. With the con so close and with ticket sale demands at an all-time high, at this point, this may be your best bet if you don’t already have tickets.

Be a part of the first 150,00 fans and you’re automatically entered to win. There are roughly 130,000 fans at the moment, so you’ll have to act fast! You can join on Facebook by clicking HERE.

They’re also beefing up their website, with a new section of the map of Hyboria which debuted on today. Hyboria is the rough territory where only the strong survive and Conan the Cimmerian thrived and the official website has been rolling out an extensive interactive map over the past few weeks and leading up to the film’s release on August 19. Head over to to see the piece of the map, which features an epic battle with a smouldering seaside village as a backdrop. You can then use your mouse to do a 180 degree look around, passing from the battle to the calm sea and sunset. You can see the entire interactive map on the Official CONAN THE BARBARIAN website.

"'I live. I love. I slay…I am content.' - Conan The Barbarian

The most legendary Barbarian of all time is back this Summer. Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D 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 realizes 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, Saïd Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman. The film is directed by Marcus Nispel, and written by Thomas Dean Donnelly & Joshua Oppenheimer and Sean Hood."
