A double dose of a sweaty, well-greased Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming to Blu-ray this August.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal is working on 'Conan the Barbarian' and 'Conan the Destroyer' for Blu-ray on August 2.

The catalog releases will arrive just in time to gear up for the theatrical release of Marcus Nispel's 2011 remake starring Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan, and Ron Perlman.

Although most specs and supplements still have yet to be finalized, 'Conan the Barbarian' will have the extended cut of the film and supplements will include: Exclusive U-Control Picture-in-Picture Experience, All New Cast and Crew Interviews, Exclusive First Look: Conan the Barbarian (2011), Conan Unchained: The Making of Conan, A Comprehensive Study of Robert E. Howard's Stories, The Conan Archives & Vault Production Stills, and Deleted and Alternate Scenes.
