Oddly-Misleading Cover Art: Beowulf (1999)

For the record, I love 1999's steam-punk Beowulf film.  Not as an actual 'quality film,' mind you, but as a 'ridiculous train wreck of a film.'

While looking at movies in a store, I saw one of the 525,600 Horror/Action Compilations and saw that it includes said film.  However, something is different...
For the record, Beowulf never wears armor like that, nor does he stand on an icy field like that.

In fact, let's look at how Christopher Lambert looks in that movie.
Yeah, swing and a miss, movie.

I get that you want to 're-brand' a movie after this long (and with relative obscurity to boot).  That said, what's wrong with this box-art?
