I don’t know what’s scarier about this new trailer for “Beautiful Creatures” (aka “Harry Potter”/”Twilight” Replacement #113), Emma Thompson vamping out as some uber witch that wants to enslave all of us poor mortals, or all the thick Southern accents flinging about the joint. Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Southern folk, but sheesh, they’re laying it on pretty thick in this one. Anyhoo. Check out the latest trailer for “Beautiful Creatures”, another would-be movie franchise based on a series of Young Adult novels that were snatched up during the recent run on Young Adult novels in the aftermath of “Harry Potter” and “Twilight’s” success.
A supernatural love story set in the South, “Beautiful Creatures” tells the tale of two star-crossed lovers: Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich), a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena (Alice Englert), a mysterious new girl. Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history and their town.
My guess — and this is purely a guess — but teenage love conquers all. I could be wrong, of course.
Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, and directed by Richard LaGravenese.
The witch is back February 13, 2013.
