G4’s The Feed has your first look at the Patrick Tatopoulos-created creature, called the Moorwen, in the sci-fi action/adventure film Outlander, starring Jim Caviezel, Sophia Myles, Jack Huston, Ron Perlman and John Hurt. Tatopoulos’ credits include the “Underworld” films, Silent Hill, I, Robot, Godzilla and Independence Day.
Outlander begins when a space craft crashes into the majestic fjords of ancient Norway and into the time of the Vikings. From the wreckage emerge two bitter enemies: a soldier from another world Kainan and a bloodthirsty creature known as the Moorwen. Man and monster both seeking revenge for violence committed against them. As the Moorwen ravages the Viking world, killing everything in its path, Kainan forms an unlikely alliance with the primitive but fierce warriors. Combining his advanced technology with ancient Iron Age weapons, the hero leads a desperate attempt to kill the monster – before it destroys them all.
The Weinstein Company release is directed by Howard McCain from a screenplay he wrote with Dirk Blackman.
