With Beowulf still due out this November I had expected at least a teaser trailer by now. It looks like Paramount is close, however, as they have just released two of the film's first production photos.

The production photos (shown above and below) popped up over at LA Times with their 'First Look' at the film. The preview came just in time, as the film will be screened for the first time at Comic-Con beginning at the end of this week.

The first public viewing of Beowulf will be served up in digital 3-D projection at Comic-Con in San Diego tonight before screening again in standard digital projection for thousands of genre fans on Thursday afternoon in the convention center's Hall H. It's impossible to say how this taste-making crowd will respond, even if some involved in the project have taken to describing it as Lord of the Rings meets 300.'"

But Zemeckis producing partner Steve Starkey is betting that "Beowulf's" horror-fantasy elements coupled with digital 3-D -- not to mention a digitally enhanced Jolie matched with a heroic Beowulf -- will be embraced by a genre crowd hungry for a big story with big themes that also delivers heaping amounts of cinematic spectacle.

"I think this will be right up Comic-Con's alley," Starkey said on Monday.

Winstone is actually 50 years old, but thanks to wizardry of motion capture technology, he and other main characters age onscreen from teenagers to 70-year-olds as the film progresses. "It's been a long time since I've looked 17 or 18 years old," Winstone said, on a call from the set of "Indiana Jones IV," in which he plays a character called "Mac." "But I looked back at pictures of myself then and it's weird how I look the same in the film as I did back then when I was a boxer."

Check out the entire 'First Look' at LA Times.

Fred's going to be reporting from Comic-Con, so hopefully he will be able to get a glimpse of the film.

Beowulf opens to theaters on November 17th.

Stay tuned for updates.
