Today Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2 finally arrived in cinemas and looks like it’s going to be the best received film critically but its too little too late so we have a very big gap in the young adult film market now to be filled. It seems the film studios have been raiding the YA Books with a fine comb for the next big thing and 2013 we’ll see several films from Divergent, Mortal Instruments:City Of Bones (watch trailer), also The Hunger Games:Catching fire and this one Beautiful Creatures.
Based on a set of novels from Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, Beautiful Creatures a supernatural based story centering around two teens(Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert) who are mysteriously drawn together despite the fact they have never met.Together they romantically get closer and at the same time uncovering some disconcerting secrets about their hometown and families!
Compared to the other upcoming films in the Young Adult market Beautiful Creatures seems to be the only one taking a more Southern gothic horror route. It does look visually appealing , the trailer also enlightens us a little on the plot too making things a tad clearer. Outside The Hunger Games this one does looks like it has a really strong cast which can boast 3 Oscar winners Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis and Emma Thompson. With the reputation Young Adult films have critically you wonder why actors of such caliber sign on, all you have to do is look at Emma Thompson who looks like she is having so much fun!
Beautiful Creatures will arrive in UK, Ireland and USA 13th February 2013 and co-stars Emmy Rossum.
Check out the new trailer below and UK poster (above).
Small-town teen ETHAN WATE (Alden Ehrenreich) dreams of escaping his ordinary life until the day he meets LENA DUCHANNES (Alice Englert). His attraction is intense: this is the girl he has been dreaming of—literally. They have the same sense of humor. They have both lost theirmothers. And unbeknownst to them, they are inextricably linked by supernatural events that took place long before they were born.
Even when Lena confesses to being a “Caster,” a witch, and warns him that he could be hurt just by being with her, Ethan’s affections are unwavering. But as Lena’s 16th birthday approaches, everything spins desperately out of control. Knowing the forces of Light and Dark will soon converge to claim her for good or evil, Lena fears for Ethan’s safety. So she makes an incredible sacrifice: she erases their love from Ethan’s memory. But their connection is inescapable, and as Darkness closes in on Lena, she will have to choose between saving Ethan and holding on to everything else she cares about.
Imaginative, dark and funny, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES is a haunting, supernatural love story about an ordinary boy in love with a powerful sorceress who wants to be normal—and the dangerous secret that changes their lives forever.
