Robert Zemekis's "The Polar Express" was fairly well panned by most audiences. Yet the technology used to create the computer animated film - no matter how dull the story may have been - was awe inspiring.
Now Zemekis uses the technology developed in Polar Express to stretch his storytelling legs with the 900 year old poem that has become England's National Epic.
And I have to say that from the trailer posted on the official site it looks pretty incredible.
And let's face it: computer animated or not, hearing Angelina Jolie coo and seduce the main character into producing an offspring is enough to get my ass into the theater seat.
