Not Bad...

The makers of the new Conan film have said they drew some of their inspiration from the artwork of Frank Frazetta. That's pretty clear in the new movie poster, as it looks like an attempt to show a Frazetta style scene in real life. As such it looks pretty good. Of course in real life it also shows how vulnerable a bare-chested guy looks surrounded by soldiers in full armor. And of course Robert E. Howard's Conan DID wear armor when the need required it, but still the shirtless barbarian berserker is something of a genre convention so we'll let it go for the sake of a nifty poster.
