Beautiful-Creatures-Character-Poster-Alden-EhrenreichBeautiful Creatures will be arriving just in time for the Valentine’s Day weekend next year, and is the first of a handful of contenders vying for the attention of the young adult fiction audience, with The Twilight Saga now officially concluded.

Following the latest trailer we saw earlier in the month, we saw the first character poster debuted for Alice Englert’s Lena, and now a new poster has debuted for Alden Ehrenreich and his character, Ethan.

“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 Englert (Ginger & Rosa) and Ehrenreich (Stoker) take the lead alongside an excellent supporting cast, headed up by the brilliant Emmy Rossum (The Phantom of the Opera), Emma Thompson (Love Actually), Jeremy Irons (Margin Call), 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 is set to hit theatres in the UK and US on 13th February, 2013, coming just in time for the young romantics as they venture into theatres for the Valentine’s Day weekend. For now, here’s the new character poster, which you can click through to enlarge.
