As noted previously here on the “Musings” blog, there is a brand-new “Conan The Barbarian” film opening up soon and if you didn’t see our trailer post just click HERE to enjoy that. This film opens in a few short weeks so I thought it might be fun to share a few of the promotional posters that were unveiled since the trailer hit. It’s the kind of stuff that I will be sharing more of as time goes on with this side of the PiercingMetal coin. I hope you like them.

The Plot: Conan is the son of Corin, chief of a barbarian tribe. The youth is a skilled but violent warrior, who his father believes is not ready to wield his own sword. Their village is attacked by Khalar Zym, a warlord who wishes to reunite the pieces of the Mask of Acheron to revive his dead wife and conquer Hyboria. The Mask, crafted by a group of sorcerers and used to subjugate the world, was broken into many pieces, scattered among the barbarian tribes.

Opening Today: “Captain America: The First Avenger” (7/22/2011)

“When Captain America throws his mighty shield! All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield! If he’s led to a fight and a duel is due then the red and the white and the blue will come through when Captain America throws his mighty shield!!!!!

Such were the words of the song from the “Marvel Super-Heroes” cartoon show that aired way back in 1966 but I doubt that many of you would remember that depending on your actual vintage. Today is the day that “Captain America: The First Avenger” opens up to the masses and after seeing how good “Thor” was and having enjoyed both “Iron Man” and “The Incredible Hulk” I have very high hopes for what we shall get with Cap.

Opening Today: “Green Lantern” (6/17/2011)

“In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night; No Evil Shall Escape My Sight; Let those who worship evil’s might, beware my Power – Green Lantern’s Light!”

That’s the famous oath of the Green Lantern Corps and the words spoken by Hal Jordan every time he needs to recharge his incredible Power Ring and “suit up” as the Green Lantern of Sector 2814. That’s Earth and its surrounding area of space in case you were curious. Today is the opening of the very first ever live action Green Lantern film and if the trailers are any example of what is to be found, then it looks like a whole lot of fun.
