movie poster header 05 13 11 Movie Poster Roundup: Conan the Barbarian, Real Steel & More

The weekly movie poster roundup had to take a small break while I dealt with some issues (I may or may not have been institutionalize under the Baker Act) but as of today it’s back in full swing – and I do mean FULL SWING. This was a busy week for posters as I located 59 posters from 45 different movies and believe it or not most of them are pretty darn good – no poorly executed X-Men: First Class posters this week.

One of the reasons we at Screen Rant like doing this weekly poster roundup – it allows us to share posters for films we may not otherwise cover but would most likely watch if given the chance. Take this week’s roundup for instance – there are only a handful of posters for mainstream films like Zookeeper, Conan the Barbarian, Kung Fu Panda 2, Final Destination 5, Horrible Bosses and Colombiana.

Instead, as you browse through the eleven pages of movie posters you will notice a heavy dose of indie, low-to-mid budget horror, and even a few direct-to-video movie posters – my favorite is Sucker for its cheesy tagline “Payback’s an itch.”  You’ll also find posters and synopses for films you may not have heard of before but star actors you are very familiar with – Submarine (Ben Stiller), Dark Tide (Halle Berry), The Artist (John Goodman) and The Skin I Inhabit (Antonio Banderas).

Take a look at all of them below, then tell us which ones were your favorite.


Conan the Barbarian

Synopsis: 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.

Real Steel

Synopsis: A future-set story where robot boxing is a popular sport and centered on a struggling promoter (Hugh Jackman) who thinks he’s found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he also discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father.

  1. Handful of great movie posters, but isn’t ‘Real Steel’ basically Sock’em Bop’em robots?

    • Yep

  2. I think I’ll be watching quite a few of these movies. Father’s Day seems frighteningly interesting.

  3. Wait which one was John Goodman? I love him. But The Artist looked like a foreign film. With a poorly translated synopsis maybe? haha

  4. My personal favorites (in no particular order) were the posters for: Don’t be Afraid of the Dark, Colombiana, Masks, and Don’t Let Him In.

    Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark was particularly creepy, and I like the retro vibe to it.

    Now, who knows whether the movies they’re attached to will be any good, but I like the impact the posters had.

  5. Since Ironclad has Sir Derek Jacobi in it, I’ll be looking forward to it. Among his many great roles was a fave of mine called, “Cadfael.” He and the swords and castle story should combine for a good movie.

  6. Conan is a great poster but would you go into massed combat bare chested and sans helmet?? Neither did he which is one of the problems.

    Iron Clad and World of the Dead are also ones I am waiting to come out.
