Comic-Con 2007: Beowulf
Those not lucky enough to have scored a ticket to the 3D footage screening last night will have to make do with this www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/beowulf/. It's hard to make a proper judgement based on a Quicktime trailer watched on a MacBook, but while the realistic nature of the humans certainly appear to be an improvement over those in Polar Express, I'm still not completely convinced. David Poland was clearly impressed by the San Diego footage. "This sneak peek stinks of greatness," he writes on www.mcnblogs.com/thehotblog/. "The footage is beautiful and compelling. It is a kind of shock to the system, watching something so real and so drawn-looking at the same time and being drawn into the performances like normal. And you are." I'll be seeing the 3D Comic-Con footage myself next week.
