Earlier this week we announced the release dates of Beowulf & Grendel in the United States (here). It turns out that the official site for the film has a few more details to give on Beowulf & Grendel's release to theatres and DVD.

Beowulf & Grendel Ready for US Theatrical Release

The Film Works, Eurasia Motion Pictures and Goodweird are pleased to announce an agreement with Union Station Media, a joint venture of Alliance Atlantis and Arclight Films International, for the U.S. theatrical release of Beowulf & Grendel, directed by Sturla Gunnarsson and written by Andrew Rai Berzins. The film opens in six US cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Seattle and San Francisco, starting on June 16. Star Gerard Butler will be making extensive appearances to promote the release – and appease his fans.

“We’re very happy with this deal”, says producer Eric Jordan. “Equinoxe did a great job with the film in Canada. The Canadian release proved that people want to see this film on the big screen. U.S. fans mounted an intense Internet campaign to bring the film south, and when they started chartering buses to see it in Canada, Union Station took notice.”

Following a successful theatrical release of Beowulf & Grendel across Canada, Equinoxe Releasing is sending out a custom-boxed DVD of the film on July 18. In anticipation of the July release, Beowulf aficionados and Gerard Butler’s many, insatiable fans have already driven the DVD to the top 5 of the’s bestseller list.

Beowulf & Grendel, starring Gerard Butler, Stellan Skarsgård and Sarah Polley, is adapted from the seminal 9th century epic poem Beowulf, which tells the bloody tale of the warrior Beowulf’s battle with Grendel, a great and murderous troll.

Beowulf & Grendel comes to theatres beginning this June.
