Of course there’s also been the controversy surrounding the bizarre decision to release red-band trailers for a movie that will be rated PG-13 (wierdest marketing ever). I’ve commented here previously that I think this mixed-message promotion will come back and bit them in the butt. I’ve also stated that really the primary reason I plan on seeing the film is for the one-two punch combo of IMAX and 3D. Visually, for folks that check out the movie in that venue I think Beowulf is going to blow people away.
But does that mean the movie, as a whole, will be any good? Not necessarily, and this latest bit of footage really, really scares me… and not in a horror movie kind of way.
Check out this scene from the film where Beowulf fights sea monsters:
I don’t know about you, but I don’t think the narration in that scene could be any cheesier. Seriously… that sounded like it came from a really awful B-movie. The visuals are pretty cool, but that voiceover…. damn.
Or is it just me?
