Warner Bros. potentially have a very successful new franchise on their hands, and have been teasing us with some pretty impressive things over the past few months, most notably with the latest trailer a few weeks back.
With its Valentine’s weekend release date fast approaching, the studio have given us the first TV spot, teasing yet more romance, drama, and epic sorcery from the upcoming blockbuster.
“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.”
Rising young stars Alice Englert (Ginger & Rosa) and Alden Ehrenreich (Stoker) take the leads here, with fine support coming from Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera), Emma Thompson (Love Actually), Jeremy Irons (Margin Call), Thomas Mann (Project X), and Viola Davis (The Help).
Richard LaGravenese (Water for Elephants) is behind the camera, directing from his own script, adapting the first in the best-selling series of novels by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.
Beautiful Creatures will be released in the UK and US on 13th February, just in time for the young romantics heading into theatres on Valentine’s Day and over the weekend. For now, here’s the first TV spot to let you dip a toe in the water.
