    I definitely want to see Beowulf, but I'm hoping it will live up to the tale. Of course, I mostly want to see it because it is going to have the new 1-18-08 trailer(with the real title!).:D

    That would be Cloverfield apparently.

    Yeah. DEFINITELY want to see it. The screenplay was done by Neil Gaiman. One of his literary inspirations was Beowulf, so I'd say he's going to do a pretty good interpretation of the tale.

    DAMN can't wait to see it.

    Count me in! I've always been curious about the Beowulf mythos as a kid! It will be released in my country next week - I think! :D

    Beowulf FTW, I'm really starting to dig the CGI coating they put on the actors.

    Yeah, especially Angelina Jolie. Damn!! But I too like Beowulf I've read the tale and I was loving it in a weird way he was like Superman without the super powers and such. As always I like to see it as well.

    I read Beowulf when I was a kid and greatly enjoyed it.

    The movie looks to be very much inspired by 300, in the ads for it anyway. Looks interesting though.

    Yea Beowulf is one of the few reasons they actually got me to pay attention during the poetry portion of English. I've been looking forward to this ever since I heard about it, was kind of put off by the fact that it was going to be a CGI treatment, but the more I saw of the ads the more I started digging the style.

    I don't see why they put a CGI coating on the actors. Seems unnecessary and an easy way out of making the real actors look like they're actually in the fantasy environment.

    I agree Cataclizm1. Honestly, I am not really digging the CGI on this. With all the big name actors attached to it, why make them all shiny? Every time I see the trailer I think I am watching CGI movie clips from a video game.

    But I read Beowulf in high school so if it gets moderate reviews I am willing to give it a shot at the theater.

    I plan on going to see it. I'm not happy with it being done in 3D, but, I'm not going to hold that against it. I want to go and see it first, then form an opinion on wether it was good or not (basically what I do for all movies I go see in the theatre).

    Anyone caught the show yet? It was kinda ok but I was kinda disappointed that the producers "tweaked" the mythos.
