Looking at the poster for the new Beowulf movie on Neil Gaiman's Blog, and thinking how it inexplicably looked like Lara Croft, then viewed the trailer and discovered that Angelina Jolie is in it, and seems, in fact, to be playing Grendel's mother (!!!) who somehow becomes, from what I can gather from the trailer snippet, responsible for giving Beowulf his power (!!!!!). Don't worry, I'm not going to rant. I find it vastly amusing. And I believe in some ways that it's actually okay for people to muck about with Beowulf. After all, it comes from an oral tradition, and got mucked about with by the Christians in the first place, so why not put the comely Angelina in it? You've got my vote :)
