After slowly making its move across the globe, Beowulf & Grendel, a film that has a surprising amount of supporters thanks mostly in part to a little actor known as Gerard Butler, will finally cross into United States territory.

We have received a brief little update from 'Sandie' over the weekend telling us that Beowulf & Grendel will in fact make it to domestic theatres just in time for summer.

This information comes from director Sturla Gunnarsson and screenwriter Andrew Berzins. Union Station Media, a newly formed subsidiary of Arclight, has signed a deal for U.S. distributorship of Beowulf and Grendel. The film will open in six US cities starting with Seattle on June 16, following its screening at the Seattle Int'l Film Festival on June 8 & 10.

June 16th Seattle ~ Varsity (Landmark Theatres)
June 30th San Francisco ~ Opera Plaza (Landmark Theatres)
July 7th New York ~ Quad Cinema
July 14th Chicago ~ Century (Landmark Theatres)
July 28th Los Angeles ~ Westside Pavilion (Landmark Theatres)
August 11th Boston ~ Kendall Square (Landmark Theatres)

An epic tale based on the famous Old English poem, "Beowulf," which inspired Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings". The medieval adventure, part fable, part horror story is loosely based on the 9th century Anglo-Saxon poem, "Beowulf," telling the blood-soaked tale of a Norse hero's battle with a great and murderous troll.

Beowulf & Grendel comes to theatres beginning this June.
