Yes, it's another remake. But in this case, even die-hard fans of the original 'Clash of the Titans' -- and there were lots of them; the film was a box office hit -- have got to be excited about this high-tech do-over.

Helmed by 'The Incredible Hulk' director Louis Leterrier, the new 'Clash of the Titans' retells the Greek myth of Perseus's quest to save the Princess Andromeda. Though 1981's 'Clash' was groundbreaking at the time -- thanks to stop-motion animation by effects legend Ray Harryhausen -- technology has come far in the intervening years, giving fantasy guru Leterrier a host of new tools to retell this classic story.

The film's first trailer gives us a glimpse of loads of state-of-the-art eye candy. Behold the toppling statues! The great thatches of writhing snakes! The hideous kraken! If the trailer doesn't make you shudder and grab for a tub of popcorn, well...good God, man! What does it take?

Luddites take note: not all of the thrills are high-tech. Thanks to good old-fashioned genetics, Perseus (Sam Worthington, rocking a breastplate) and Andromeda (Alexa Davalos, in goddess white) are a sight to behold as well.

'Clash of the Titans' is set to hit theaters March 26, 2010.
