Lawsuit Filed Over New Conan the Barbarian Movie

| Filed under: Film FlickersLegal MattersPerezTVBusiness Blitz

Tough times for the new Conan!

It's already been a less-than-fantastic few days for the people behind the new Conan the Barbarian movie, which underperformed at the box office this weekend, and now it's about to get worse!

Stan Lee Media Inc. (SLMI), a company which now has nothing to do with founder Stan Lee, is suing the folks behind the new Conan flick, claiming that they still retain ownership of the "Conan" character.

According to the company, the transfer of the character and other assets to Paradox Entertainment took place during a time when SLMI's properties "were part of a bankruptcy estate and protected from unauthorized transfer by the automatic bankruptcy stay."

The new Conan people must be in REALLY high spirits right now, especially given the fact that the movie brought in around $10 million, while the budget was between $70 and $90 million!!! And yes, we're being sarcastic.

Should be interesting to see who wins this one…but not TOO interesting because the movie isn't even bringing in decent money! We'd be pret-ty surprised if a sequel gets made for this one.

What do U think about all of this? Are the people behind the new Conan in lots of trouble???

    It wasn't very well advertised. I remember hearing they were making it and seeing the "oh so hot" Jason Momoa on Conan but I didn't see many previews. I live in KS & we only get to see promotion on BIG pics. If they would of promoted more I would of went to watch my Ronon sweat

    I saw the movie and it was awesome. It is NOT your 80's Conan…it is true to the book and very Barbarbic. I think they did a good job. I agee with KellyP5555 they did not promote it properly.
