Robert Zemeckis’ upcoming film, ‘Beowulf’ is set to get released in 3D as one of the largest nationwide releases of a 3D film ever.
Set to bow nationwide Nov. 16, 2007, “Beowulf” is expected to be in more than 1,000 Real D theaters, as well as other 3-D locations, in what should be the largest day-and-date large-format 3-D release ever. It’s likely that Imax would be the other large-format theater, though no deal has been signed, according to sources close to the film.
3D aside, I’m really looking forward to this film. Beowulf was one of the best things they forced me to read in high school and still one of my favorite classic epics. I always thought the story would make an excellent big-budget action film. The screenplay has been written by Neil Gaiman of ‘Mirrormask’ and ‘Sandman’ fame, so you know it’ll maintain the dark atmosphere of the original literature.
This just became one of my most anticipated films of 2007.
