When you watch enough movies, sooner or later you get the feeling that you have seen it all before. Then, if you're lucky, one comes along with a premise quite unlike anything else -- a pleasant surprise sandwiched between the same old repetitive shlock. Now, you would think that would be a good thing, right? Normally yes -- but in the case of the Sci-fi Viking film Outlander; I'm not so sure.

Martha reported on the movie back in August, but since then there hasn't been much press. Outlander stars Jim Caviezel as a mysterious man from space who crashes into earth during the time of Vikings, ultimately joining with them to fight an alien that has followed him there. (Wow, I felt stupid even typing that, imagine having to pay hard-earned money to watch it.) G4 recently spoke with designerPatrick Tatopoulos about his work on the film and have an exclusive look at this mysterious Viking-hating creature. Tatopoulous has worked on Independence Day, Silent Hill, and I, Robot, so he seems pretty comfortable with big rubber creatures and CGI equally. So far we only get a look at a model and -- what I can I say -- It looks like your run-of-the-mill monster. Therefore, I'm not even sure if top quality Special F/X can help a movie this goofy. If nothing else, pic will have the distinction of probably being the only Sci-fi Viking movie ever made ... and that's something, I guess.
