Greased up sweaty dudes? Swords? Mythical creatures? Lots of yelling? No, this isn't the new trailer for "Immortals" but instead it's the latest U.K. spot for "Conan The Barbarian" the long awaited franchise reboot no one was asking for.

Greased up sweaty dudes? Swords? Mythical creatures? Lots of yelling? No, this isn't the new trailer for "Immortals" but instead it's the latest U.K. spot for "Conan The Barbarian" the long awaited franchise reboot no one was asking for.

Jason Momoa takes on the lead role that made Arnold Schwarzenegger a household name before impregnating his housekeeper would more or less do the same thing all over again. What we glean is that the movie will follow a young Conan who grabs a sword and yells who then grows up to be an older Conan who wields a sword and yells. Some things never change. Rachel Nichols, Stephen Lang, Rose McGowan, Saïd Taghmaoui and Ron Perlman all co-star in various and probably thankless roles and the whole thing will be delivered in 3D by Marcus Nispel, capping off the reasons you might just want to save that $12 before buying a ticket.

The movie opens on August 19th and if we sit through this, it's only because we're sort of curious about what those sand monster thingies are all about. Check out the trailer below. [HeyUGuys]
