BEOWULF posters... this is gonna be the balls!

Hey folks, Harry here... Just got sent these - from the site: FilmFocus.NL - and I find it very appropriate that I would be sent these from that region of the world. I'm dying to see anything and everything from this movie. Ever since I've heard it descibed as a living breathing Frank Frazetta-esque film... I've been dying to see how accurate that hyperbole is. Take a look...

From the IMAX Press release: IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures, Shangri-La Entertainment and Warner Bros. Pictures today announced that Beowulf, the latest film from Academy Award winning director Robert Zemeckis, the filmmaker behind such box office successes as Forrest Gump, The Polar Express, the Back To The Future series and What Lies Beneath, will be released domestically in IMAX® 3D simultaneously with the motion picture's premiere in conventional theatres on November 16, 2007. The film will be released internationally within three weeks of the domestic launch. Beowulf will be digitally converted into IMAX 3D and re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® through IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. Paramount Pictures will be the distributor of the motion picture to IMAX® theaters domestically, and Warner Bros. Pictures will be the distributor internationally. Inspired by the 9th century English epic poem, Beowulf combines a digitally enhanced live-action filmmaking technology with an all-star cast that includes Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich, Robin Wright Penn, Brendan Gleeson, Crispin Glover, Alison Lohman and Angelina Jolie. Neil Gaiman (MirrorMask, the graphic novel Sandman) and Roger Avary (Pulp Fiction) adapted the legend for the screen. “IMAX 3D has enabled us to tell stories in a whole new way, and we are very excited to offer moviegoers a chance to experience Beowulf in this incredible format,” said Robert Zemeckis. “IMAX lends itself to the incredible image detail in Beowulf and in 3D, it will transport the audience directly into the story.”
