The hottest trailer since Sin City
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within and The Polar Express tried to use motion capture to create CGI actors realistically, but the characters looked lifeless and unconvincing. Final Fantasy was a huge bust at the box office, but The Polar Express raked in nearly $300 million worldwide. These characters look incredibly convincing; no one can watch this trailer without at first thinking it's a live action movie. If Beowulf is a success in the box office as well as critically, more movies may end up looking like this.
