An original production-used storyboard from the production of Wolfgang Petersen's 2004 adaptation of Homer's great epic Troy.
After falling for the beautiful Helen (Diane Kruger), Trojan prince Paris (Orlando Bloom) smuggles her aboard the ship of his brother, Hector (Eric Bana) to take her to Troy. Seeking revenge, the Greek armies led by Agamemnon (Brian Cox) and the legendary warrior Achilles (Brad Pitt) set sail for Troy, where one of history's greatest wars will be waged.
This storyboard shows the scene in which Hector encounters Achilles in the Temple of Apollo. There is a tense stand-off, Hector backs Achilles out of the temple at sword-point, but outside finds himself surrounded by Achillesâ€™ men. However they part amicably enough, agreeing to meet in war tomorrow. The sequence ends with a single on Eudorus as planned but instead of saying "the Trojans are dead" he says "my lord, you let him go?"
This artwork is stamping â€˜PRELIMINARYâ€™ and indeed the sequence does not play out exactly as storyboarded in the final edit, but the crux of the scene remains the same. The storyboard has been hole-punched on the left, indicating that it was part of a larger collection used during the production. Each drawing has a little description next to it, including lines of dialogue for the scene.
The page comes beautifully presented in a custom-built frame with laser cut mount board featuring the movie title and remains in very good condition.
