Latest Beowulf trailer!

09.20.2007

I have to say I haven't been super-impressed with everything I've seen on BEOWULF so far. Granted I didn't get to see the 10-minutes of footage in 3-D at Comic-Con but the trailers haven't done much for me (besides the obvious ogling at Angelina Jolie's animated boobs). Today though we get our best trailer yet. It streamlines the story into man vs. monster and sells Beowulf as more of a King Leonidas type badass. Not sure I love the industrial rock in the background but it works for what the trailer is. I'm really curious to see how BEOWULF performs at the box-office and what that means for the future of mo-cap technology. Sure it's great for kids films like POLAR EXPRESS and MONSTER HOUSE but what can it mean for the future of adult movies? Could it work for a JUSTICE LEAGUE movie? Check out the new trailer at Apple's site in high-def (it's marked "Trailer #2") then come back and share your thoughts via the Strike Backs.

Extra Tidbit: Roger Avary was initially set to direct this film when it was set up at DreamWorks.

noooo

Looks like trash. CGI should be used to create things that REQUIRE CGI. Not just anything and everything just because you can. That's stupid George Lucas thinking right there.

INTRESTING

I dont know much about bwolf but the second trailer sold the film alot better than the first. Im very curious if the mo-cap will had something special to this film or it may just spoil the movie even if its a great story.

I'm not sure yet...

Some parts looks amazing and incredibly realistic, while other parts looks unfinished and stiff. I have no problem with Mo-Cap technology, but I'm also not sure WHY they needed to use it for this story, other than playing around with the technology (which is never a good reason for making a film, as George Lucas has shown us).

I just don't get it.


I mean, why mo-cap? I can see a mo-cap X-Men movie being pretty cool because you're using technology to create characters that are well known for their very iconic images that are hard to recreate with living, breathing actors. But no one knows what Beowulf looks like. I think the mo-cap CGI was a bad way to go with this one.

I like CGI if it serves a purpose. this just doesn't seem to. It seems like technology for technology's sake.
