Beowulf Press Conference at the London IMAX

I went along to the BFI IMAX recently to see the new Beowulf film in 3-D directed by Robert Zemeckis.

It uses motion capture technology to retell the old English poem and Ray Winstone, Anthony Hopkins, Crispin Glover, producer Steve Starkey plus writers Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman discussed it afterwards at the press conference.

The interior was decked out in a medieval theme with drummers, wooden barrels and candles.

I’ll post a full review of the film in the podcast on Friday but until then here are some photos I took of the day:
