"Beowulf" Bits: IMAX News and the First Posters

by | July 2, 2007 | Comments

Either you were forced to read the epic poem in high school or maybe you just rented the really awful Christopher Lambert movie, but a new version of "Beowulf" is coming from Robert Zemeckis — and so far it looks pretty cool.

Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary worked on the adaptation together, and the flick is now scheduled to open on November 16th — in traditional theaters as well as about 1,000 digital theaters. And since Zemeckis is using the same motion-capture animation technology that he used on "The Polar Express," odds are the movie will look pretty damn amazing on the IMAX screens.

The adaptation will star Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins, Brendan Gleeson, John Malkovich, and Crispin Glover as the titular beastie. (Yes, I said Crispin Glover.) Plus FilmFocus has snagged a few brand-new shots of the movie’s early promotional materials, so have a look at those right here.

Hm. I wasn’t a big fan of "The Polar Express" (I’d call it pretty but kinda soulless), but this new experiment looks pretty cool so far!
