This morning's big mover and shaker seems to be Beowulf, the Sony-financed adaptation of the 10th century epic poem. Director Robert Zemeckis is helming this one using the same motion-capture technology he used previously on The Polar Express (which I didn't see, so can't comment on how well it worked or not). Shares in the movie, starring Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover and Alison Lohman are up six points on trading of about 1.4 million shares. This one's sure to at least draw interest from the English-major crowd and such but will probably be marketed as a straight fantasy/adventure flick.
