Jason Momoa ConanIf it’s Lionsgate that is leaking all of these initial photos from the upcoming reboot Conan onto the web, it’s a somewhat brilliant marketing strategy. Another image appears on a slow news day and look at that, we’re once again talking about their movie. This time it’s two in the span of three days — two new photos of Jason Momoa looking bloody, wet and menacing as the famous barbarian.

The first image below hit over the weekend — an up-close and personal look at one of Conan’s three likely facial expressions (these include angry, really angry and blank). The second hit today at Uruloki (via /Film). It’s more of an official-looking promo image that includes some background. And as you can see, it’s not exactly impressive. Nothing from Conan has been impressive yet. We’re going to need a gnarly teaser trailer or perhaps the full movie before we can make a clear call on Momoa as Conan. This of course, is where this marketing strategy (if it is such a thing) is only somewhat brilliant. We’re still talking about Conan every day or so, but we’re not saying nice things. That could very well backfire.

Either way, Conan is due in theaters in 2011. It is directed by Marcus Nispel and will also star Stephen Lang, Ron Perlman, Leo Howard and Rachel Nichols. The new images are below waiting for you to click and enlarge them.
