Crom will be looking down from the heavens with a smile on his face when he gets wind of this news.

Lionsgate, the studio behind the new version of Robert E. Howard’s iconic sword and sorcery creation, has thankfully changed the title Conan 3D back to its original of ‘Conan the Barbarian’.

No explanation of the change is given by Coming Soon, but I’d like to believe it was because the studio realised the title was completely unimaginative, but also by calling it that, it would cheapen this well-established and respected property.

Directed by Marcus Nispel, the fantasy adventure, in which Stargate Atlantis cast member Jason Momoa will be filling those very big shoe left by Arnold Schwarzenegger, is due for released in the UK on the 19 August next year.
