Beautiful Creatures PosterBeautiful Creatures
Directed by Richard LaGravenese
Written by Richard LaGravenese
Starring: Alden Ehrenreich, Alice Englert, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum, Emma Thompson, Margo Martindale
Warner Bros. Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: February 14, 2013

Written and directed by Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You), Beautiful Creatures is a supernatural romance film based on the young adult novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Young Adult Supernatural Romance is right up there with the Comic Book Superhero Origin Story as one of the most popular (and profitable) subgenres in the film industry right now.

With the success of Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga, and The Hunger Games, studios are snatching up YA titles left and right in hopes of producing the next big blockbuster franchise. Beautiful Creatures is the latest ‘supernatural’ (code for watered-down, unscary horror) teenage romance movie, with a story that mixes elements of Star Wars and Harry Potter with the Spanish moss and Southern accents of True Blood.

LaGravenese’s film plays like Twilight with the sexes reversed. This time it’s the boy who’s mortal. Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) is a bookish, shy-but-sweet high school kid in the sleepy town of Gatlin, South Carolina. When he isn’t reading Charles Bukowski or Kurt Vonnegut, Wate dreams of escaping his boring, dead-end town and going to college in New York – until he meets newcomer Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert).

Beautiful Creatures

Life for young teenage girls (and maybe their mothers) won’t be easy after The Twilight Saga comes to an end. But Warner Bros will attempt to fill that void in their hearts with Richard La Gravenese’s big screen adaptation of Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures. The film initially sounded like just another young adult romance novel, but then actors like Emma Thompson, Viola Davis, and Jeremy Irons joined the cast. Yup, some pretty big names are in this tale of supernatural young love.

Check out the trailer here below.

Beautiful Creatures stars Alden Ehrenreich as Ethan, a young man who has recenty moved into a small southern town. He becomes smitten with Lena (Alice Englert), a young mysterious girl of few words. Together they develop a relationship and find out that their respective families and even their own town has some dark secrets.
