‘Beautiful Creatures’ Teaser – Warner Bros. Aim to Strike YA Gold

Written by on September 19, 2012 

Harry Potter is off their table, so Warner Bros., needing another fantasy story involving teenagers, went to Richard LaGravenese and Beautiful Creatures. A guess as to how well this gamble ends up paying off, come next February, is difficult to glean in the first teaser, a very quick method of introducing the characters which leaves a non-reader of the books (hi) entirely clueless.

Alden Ehrenreich plays a 25-year-old high school student who falls for a girl (Alice Englert) with a shady past; a woman helps them out; another woman wants to stop the girl; the two lead characters share a kiss. Right? (I watched the trailer and paid attention, too.) I don’t know what to make of this, but it’s still a quick way of saying “here’s a movie that’s coming out.” Maybe subsequent previews will pull me in a bit more.

Watch it below (via Apple):

Synopsis: 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. Oscar(R) nominee Richard LaGravenese (“The Fisher King,””P.S. I Love You”) directs from his adaptation of the first novel in the best-selling series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The film stars Alden Ehrenreich (“Tetro”), newcomer Alice Englert, Academy Award(R) winner Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) Oscar(R) nominee Viola Davis (“The Help,” “Doubt”), Emmy Rossum (TV’s “Shameless”) and Academy Award(R) winner Emma Thompson (“Howard’s End,” “Sense and Sensibility”).

Beautiful Creatures opens on February 13th, 2013.
