It’s magic, you know?
First off, I swear to you, if I had known about this, I would have contacted you about it sooner, because you know this is right up my alley. Of course, the level of impressive marvel is increased with the inclusion of Seven Devils by my pal, Florence. But, that’s neither here nor there. The truth of the matter is, this is one phenomenal trailer, for a film with stupendous potential. How do I know? Well, I might have fangirled a bit when I saw it. That’s all the proof you need, really.
Based on the novel of the same name – by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl – Beautiful Creatures centers around the forbidden love between Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert). Lena is a witch (Otherwise known as a Caster) and her family doesn’t quite approve of the match. No surprise there. However, time is fleeting for the couple, as Lena must choose between the Light and the Dark before her sixteenth birthday. Others try to influence her and test her commitment – even her Siren cousin, Ridley (Emmy Rossum), and Incubus uncle (Jeremy Irons) – but the real threat is Serafine (Emma Thompson), the deadliest of them all, who will stop at nothing to sway Lena into joining the dark side. As you can see, the two are in for a mess of trouble.
The film arrives in theatres February 14, 2013. Until then, though, I think it’s best if we’re all on the same page. We have a new book to read, don’t we?
