Trivia:
This film is based on the epic poem of the same name, which is the oldest known written story in a language purporting to be English.

"Beowulf" is a kenning of the Anglo-Saxon words for "Bear". A kenning is a phrase that is substituted for the usual name of a person or thing. It is typically comprised of two terms, with the first word added to the second in a way that conveys a meaning neither word has alone. Therefore, "Beowulf" comes from "Bee-Wolf", meaning "Bear".

Ray Winstone (Beowulf) said that he and his fellow cast spent several days filming in blue skintight suit, "showing up all your lumps and bumps in all the wrong places. Which can be hard when you're standing in front of Angelina Jolie (Grendel's Mother), who looks stunning in hers."
