Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Receives Another Trailer

Written by on January 30, 2014 

It feels as if we’ve been waiting a while to see the latest incarnation Beauty and the Beast, another adaptation of the classic fairy tale that, here, exudes potential to stand out (even if just a bit) from the like-minded crop of public-domain-supported pictures of recent years. Following a first trailer from December, Brotherhood of the Wolf director Christophe Gans is about unready to unveil a film he claims will “[create] a completely new visual universe never experienced before and produce images of an unparalleled quality.”

I don’t know if that promise will be fully delivered on, but what’s here has a certain quality — baroque, I’d think — that promises a unique visual experience (sans some cartoon-ish CGI) all the same. Still uncertain is how Léa Seydoux and the animated Vincent Cassel equip themselves in these roles, but a fan of either can only hope their beauty and beast roles prove a proper match — and we could find out soon, so long as a domestic distributor actually gets their hands on the material. Look for something to develop in Berlin over these coming weeks.

Stop. You know this story.

Beauty and the Beast will open in France on February 12; no U.S. release date or distributor have been set.

Do you find the first glimpses of Gans’ interpretation promising?
