They tried with Conan the Destroyer, which failed despite Kareem Abdul Jabar and Grace Jones. Jason Momoa failed to restart the franchise in this century.

Is that failure of that kind of movie really laid at the feet of a then-unfamous actor? Not the writing, direction, or even a studio misjudgment on the audience appetite for that IP? I mean it was 26 years between Destroyer and this movie, meanwhile the last 10 years of international box office has been all about existing IP.

Recently ended a 3+ yr relationship (were both mid 20s and living together for just under 2 years) bc of him buying an engagement ring yet not proposing and waffling about our future. After 2 weeks I brought up that there’s a lot of good in us that maybe worth trying to work on (counseling etc). He wants space first and asked me to not wait for him as he sorts out his emotions and “tries to be happy again” (COVID depression and 100hr work weeks). Then he’ll decide if he wants to try again
