Beowulf first look

Flying under the radar, or are people really excited to see this film? Personally I'm slightly on the side of the former. But every time we get a new glimpse at the thing, I start getting excited again. Especially when we see pictures of Angelina Jolie and a dynamite posterior that may or may not be hers.

The Los Angeles Times had the following to say about the visuals in the film:

"His knack for a good scrap is on show in one of the film’s pivotal fight scenes when Beowulf battles Grendel in the nude, mano a beast-o. (”Bob asked if he had to be nude, but we said, ‘It’s in the poem,’ ” Gaiman explained.) So in a crafty bit of staging to allow a PG-13 rating, Beowulf’s naughty bits are obfuscated by random objects in the foreground. It’s more subtle and subdued, but shadows, swords, mead flagons and shoulders block all in a sequence not unlike the prankish cloaking device used in “Austin Powers” films."
