There are few things in this world greater than the feeling one gets from taking vengeance upon the people who murdered your father. Holding a fluffy puppy fresh out of the dryer is probably one. Receiving oral pleasures on the beach definitely.
And winning free movie-related paraphernalia is another.
Conan the Barbarian sliced its way into theaters today, and to celebrate we’re giving away two swag-filled prize packs! Each pack contains two t-shirts (pictured to the right), one copy of the film’s score, one character poster, and one final theatrical poster. How can you win? Simple… what’s your favorite hack n slash fantasy themed film? It’s a broad category and covers pretty much any period film with swords and magic from Highlander to The Return of the King. (Please note, The Cable Guy does not count just because it features a scene set at Medieval Times.) Tell us in the comment section below what your favorite is and why. Remember, this is “favorite” not best. Because there’s only one answer for the best, and that answer is Hawk the Slayer.
As always the contest is open to US residents only ages 18 and up. Be sure there’s a working email address associated with your comment as that’s how we’ll notify the winners. Contest ends next Friday, August 26th! Good luck!
The official synopsis and trailer are below.
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.”
