Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer Arrive on Blu-ray this August!

On August 2, 2011, it will be time to crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women, since both Conan the Barbarian and Conan the Destroyer will be released on Blu-ray!  The original Conan movie was released in 1982 and provided Arnold Schwarzenegger his breakout role and set him on the path to movie stardom.  Conan the Barbarian had a good pedigree as it had both John Milius (who also directed) and Oliver Stone for its screenwriters and Basil Poledouris provided the epic score for the film.  James Earl Jones also provided some memorable onscreen villainy as Thulsa Doom.  Two years later Conan would return with Grace Jones, Wilt Chamberlain, and Andre the Giant in Conan the Destroyer.  Now you can see both this August in high definition!Take a look below for more details…

Conan the Barbarian

Arnold Schwarzenegger stars in the original action-packed epic adventure Conan the Barbarian. Following his parents’ savage murder, young Conan (Schwarzenegger) is captured by the cold-blooded Thulsa Doom (James Earl Jones) and spends the next fifteen years in agony, first chained to the Wheel of Pain and then enslaved as a Pit Fighter.   Rather than allowing this brutal fate to conquer him, Conan builds an incomparable body and an indomitable spirit—both of which he needs when he suddenly finds himself a free man.  Aided by his companions Subotai the Mongol (Gerry Lopez) and Valeria, Queen of Thieves (Sandahl Bergman), Conan sets out to solve the “riddle of steel,” seize ultimate power and, finally, take revenge on the warlord who killed his family.

Conan the Destroyer

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns with a vengeance in the sword and sorcery adventure Conan the Destroyer.  The powerful hero Conan (Schwarzenegger) has been commissioned by evil Queen Taramis (Sarah Douglas) to safely escort a teen princess (Olivia D’Abo) and her bodyguard (Wilt Chamberlain) to the magic Horn of Dagon.  Conan soon discovers, however, that the queen plans to sacrifice the princess when she returns and inherit her kingdom.  Now he and an unusual group of allies—including the eccentric wizard Akiro (Mako) and the wild woman Zula (Grace Jones)—must defeat both mortal and supernatural foes in an epic, sword-wielding battle with the fate of the entire world at stake.
