A Preview of Beowulf
- in Movie News
The film is directed by Robert Zemeckis and is adapted from the oldest story in the English language. Beowulf is a hyper violent and highly sexualized tale of the warrior Beowulf (Ray Winstone) who must slay the monster Grendel (Crispin Glover). Later, Grendel's mother (Jolie) seduces Beowulf so that she can produce a replacement heir that will allow her to reestablish her dominion over the kingdom.
The newspaper gives a brief description of the clip they were shown by the studio:
Angelina Jolie's lips look even fuller than usual. She's emerging naked from a pool of dank cave water, rivulets of gold streaming gently down her body.
"Giiiif meee sonnnn," she coos, in an Old English accent.
Her flaxen hair is braided down her back in a long tail that slowly undulates and slaps the dark pool around her. She continues to purr enticements about making babies as a virtual camera circles 360 degrees panning around her long limbs and waist. Gold dribbles down her inner thighs past her feet, revealing sharp stilettos merged with bestial hooves.
The first public viewing of Beowulf will be served up in digital 3-D projection at Comic-Con in San Diego on Wednesday before screening again in standard digital projection for thousands of genre fans on Thursday afternoon in the convention center's Hall H.
