Good God, Emma Thompson is laying that Southern accent on pretty thick, huh? Anyways, check out the debut trailer for Warner Bros.’ “Beautiful Creatures”, the first movie based on the series of young adult books by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. There are basically two types of YA novels these days — the ones about teenagers discovering their super duper secret magic-infused background (and, of course, falling in love with that cute (but forbidden) boy) and the ones about teenagers in a dystopian society bucking the “system” (and, of course, falling in love with that cute (but forbidden) boy). This is one of the former, in case you couldn’t guess.
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.
Starring Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, and Emma Thompson.
The beautiful creatures show up February 13, 2013. Just in time to pick up the slack left off by the last “Twilight” movie. What a coincidence!
