A novel by

Written between 700 and 1000AD, the anonymous 3,000 line poem is sometimes called 'England's national epic' and recounts the story of a young Scandinavian warrior, Beowulf, who pledges to protect King Hrothgar's people from a monstrous creature called Grendel, that has been terrorising his kingdom. In the ensuing fight, Beowulf rips off Grendel's arm and the now-mortally wounded creature flees. But an even greater threat emerges from under a mysterious lake - Grendel's mother is bent on avenging the death of her son and Beowulf faces this most terrifying of foes..."Beowulf" is one of the great works of English literature and a classic tale of heroism nd sacrifice. Employing cutting-edge film technologies and spectacular special effects, this ambitious new film will re-imagine this epic tale for the 21st century and will do for the story of "Beowulf" what the "300" did for the Battle of Thermopylae...
