In an early alert to retailers, Paramount has revealed that it's planning to bring the fantasy hit 'Beowulf' to HD DVD this February.

Utilizing cutting-edge motion capture technology to update the classic tale of the mythical English warrior, Robert Zemeckis's 'Beowulf' has enthralled audiences worldwide to the tune of nearly $200 million in box office receipts (and counting).

Paramount has set a February 26 arrival for the HD DVD, day-and-date with the standard-def DVD.

According to the studio, a full press release for 'Beowulf' isn't expected until early next month, so for now specs and supplement details are TBA. As always, we'll keep you posted.

Suggested retail price for the HD DVD has been set at $39.98.
