Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who will come to the aid of beleaguered King Hrothgar, whose warriors have become the prey of the vengeful outcast monster Grendel?

A grand and glorious story that has endured for centuries, the ageless classic adventure takes on a breathtaking new life in a remarkable new version for a modern era. Brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed, award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan, based on the screenplay by #1 New York Times bestseller Neil Gaiman and Academy Award-winning screenwriter Roger Avary, it is the tale of a noble liege and a terrible creature who has cursed his kingdom with death, blood, and destruction — and of the great hero, Beowulf, who is called to a land of monsters to triumph where so many have failed...or to die as so many of the brave before him.

Synopsis:

The classic epic poem that chronicles Beowulf's battle against the monster Grendel comes to vivid life in a new film adaptation from Paramount Pictures, scheduled to open in theaters on November 16. Directed by Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump), the film stars Ray Winstone, John Malkovich, Crispin Glover, and Anthony Hopkins. Original.
