FOG! First Look! Exclusive Images From ‘Conan the Barbarian – The Official Story of the Film’, Available Now!

In 1982, Robert E. Howard’s iconic literary anti-hero, Conan, slashed his way from page to screen after a perilous decades-long journey. With its potent mix of epic vistas and bloody battles, Conan the Barbarian thrilled moviegoers around the world and launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Forty years after its release, this cult-classic film is celebrated in Conan the Barbarian – The Official Story of the Film, a lush hardback volume that tells the full story of how the film was made. Brand new interviews with cast and crew, as well behind-the-scenes photography from the set and concept art created for the production, give fascinating insights into the development of one of the best-loved fantasy films of the 1980s.

From writer John Walsh, author of Flash Gordon: The Official Story of the Film, Escape from New York: The Official Story of the Film, and the upcoming The Wicker Man: The Official Story of the Film, comes for the first time, the definitive behind-the-scenes book of the iconic John Milius movie.

And courtesy of our friends at Titan Books, we have five exclusive photos from the book, which is available in stores and via e-tailers today.
