Conan the Barbarian teaser trailer arrives

The first trailer for Marcus Nispel's Conan the Barbarian redo has landed online at Yahoo Movies.

It plants itself well and truly in the 'teaser' category though, giving virtually no hint of what we can expect from the movie in terms of plot or action.

We're gifted with quite a few glimpses of Jason Momoa waving around his sword and generally showing of his admirable pectoral muscles, but it's all filtered through a weird smokey haze.

So it basically tells us that Momoa is exceptionally muscled, and that Conan is content with his current lifestyle: living, loving and slaying.

Watch it for yourself below and see if you can deduce anything more substantial:

This is hardly going to convert the dubious, and it looks like we'll have to wait for a full-length trailer to give an accurate judgment.

They haven't got long to get a proper trailer out though: Conan the Barbarian is set to open on 19 August 2011.
