Beowulf, Beowulf, Beowulf!

Posted on Friday, November 16th, 2007 12:10 PM by Scott Jentsch

This weekend is all about the movie "Beowulf," all four versions of it! There is the Digital Cinema 3D version, the IMAX 3D version, the standard version, and the standard IMAX version. If you haven't heard of it, you probably haven't been watching TV, visited entertainment-related web sites, or seen a newspaper.

The official summary of the movie is: In a legendary time of heroes, the mighty warrior Beowulf battles the demon Grendel and incurs the hellish wrath of the beast's ruthlessly seductive mother. Their epic clash forges the timeless legend of Beowulf.

Robert Zemeckis' animated feature is all the rage, and is also the reason that some theaters have finally taken the plunge in getting digital cinema installations completed.

There's little question that it will take the top spot in the box office. The competition is too thin for that. But for those that just don't want to see an animated Angelina Jolie drenched in gold (and not much else), at least there are a few options.

"Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium" is actually appearing on a few more screens than Beowulf, which demonstrates the confidence that the studio has in the picture. Natalie Portman plays a clerk in a magical toy shop which affords adults the opportunity to retain a child's sense of magic and wonder in their lives. When its current owner, Mr. Magorium, passes away she must decide whether she wants to run the store.

"Love in the Time of Cholera" is a tale of lifelong love and longing that is getting mixed reviews. Our Featured Movie Critic wasn't a big fan of the storyline or the acting performances.

With the Thanksgiving holiday coming up next week, there are quite a few releases coming on Wednesday to take advantage of it. Most notable are Stephen King's "The Mist," Disney's "Enchanted," "Hitman," and "August Rush."
