New Red Sonja Poster and Plot Outline – SPOILERS

16 Comments

Wait, this thing still isn’t dead? Hunh, that’s a shocker. Anyways, for those of you dying to see Rose McGowan slip on a mesh bikini top and chop her way through hordes of bad guys and looking shockingly hot doing it, here’s a new art poster (re: heavily photoshopped) for the “Grindhouse” star’s latest, a big-screen remake/reboot/re-imagining of the Red Sonja character. Plus, Nu Image was nice enough to include an official plot outline for their movie at the AFM, which pretty much outlines the entire movie from beginning, middle, to end. I would call this a SPOILER, although the whole thing sounds so generic and B-movie bad that it’s worth a read just for a nice laugh on a Friday afternoon. If this thing does end up getting made — man, it’ll either be the funniest movie starring Rose McGowan, or — well, okay, it’ll probably just be the funniest movie starring Rose McGowan.

“Red Sonja” starring Rose McGowan. Comedy or action? Or both? You decide.

    You know what? After reading the description of this movie all I can say is Meh! We’ve been so inundated by bad remakes lately (although the acting couldn’t be as bad as the original which I loved btw:) that it’ll be a pleasant surprise if this (or the Conan remake) actually turns out to be a decent movie. I won’t hold my breath though:(

    Okay….sounds like a very unoriginal story line. The script lost my interest when Red Sonja's family is slaughtered as a child and she is supposed to get revenge. First of all – that's the original 82 Conan movie, as WELL as the remake (unfortuantely).

    Well yeah there was a lot of pillaging and killing and revenge getting back then. LOL. But seriously if they're starting from scratch it kind of writes itself. If they (Conan and Sonja) just had normal lives, and just decided to pick up a sword and go fight evil would be weird. I'm hoping they have the Conan film at least be a little closer to the books with Conan being a warrior from his teens and watching his father die on the battlefield.
