We have been given a barrage of release dates in the past few days as studios hurriedly fill out their 2011 and 2012 release slates. Lionsgate has finally chimed in with a set release date for its reboot Conan, which will hit theaters on August 19th of 2011.

That same date is also shared by Robert Rodriguez's family friendly sequel Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World, as well as the teen oriented reboot Fright Night.

Its doubtful that Conan will receive the R rating shared by its first theatrical incarnation Conan The Barbarian, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Even back in 1984, Universal was smart enough to know that both Conan and Schwarzenegger appealed to kids and adults alike, giving the sequel Conan the Destroyer a PG rating.

We may see Conan take a similar approach, toning down its violence and sexuality for a PG-13 rating. Which would put it in direct competition with Fright Night. Then again, the advanced photos coming in have already shown enough nudity to get the reboot an R. If that's the case, the weekend of August 19th will be rounded out quite nicely, with a late summer film for every demographic.

Director Marcus Nispel has shot a more faithful adaptation of Robert E. Howard's fictional world, and with Conan we should get a more accurate portrayal of the character, as played by Jason Momoa.
