Conan the Barbarian
Jason Momoa picks up the sword in a new tale of one of history's most iconic action heroes. Based on the character of Conan as originally created by Robert E. Howard, a boy born on the battlefield grows into a hulking Cimmerian warrior hell-bent on avenging his father's death. But Conan's quest soon escalates from personal vendetta into an epic battle of impossible odds, facing the fiercest of rivals and the most horrific of monsters. Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.
