Review: Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful_Creatures_Poster“Warm Bodies” proved that “Twilight” didn’t expire the potential of big screen supernatural romances, but the sub-genre does take a big step back with “Beautiful Creatures.”

Gatlin, South Carolina is home to two kinds of people, the ones that are stupid and the ones that are stuck, and Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) doesn’t want to be either one of them. But, for the time being, Ethan is involuntarily stuck, stuck in a close-minded religious community living in the past. However, stuck isn’t all that bad once Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert) walks into his life.

Even though Lena is isolated by her classmates courtesy of her vilified lineage, Ethan can’t help but to feel drawn to her. Despite her protests, he wins her over, leaving Lena no choice, but to tell Ethan the truth – she’s not mortal; she’s a caster and on her 16th birthday, her powers will either be claimed for the Dark or the Light, and should they go Dark, Ethan’s life could be at risk.

Everything You Need to Know About ‘Beautiful Creatures’ Revealed at New York Comic-Con

We may be in a Hunger Games lull, but it’s still all about young adult book-to-film adaptations and the New York Comic-Con spotlight is on Beautiful Creatures.

Stemming from Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s source material, the film focuses on Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), a newcomer to the town of Gatlin. Lena meets and falls for Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich), but as a Caster born into a family with a Dark heritage, he may not be able to keep her from going Dark during the Claiming on her 16th birthday.

Just before gracing the stage at their very own New York Comic-Con panel, writer-director Richard LaGravenese, producer Broderick Johnson and stars Alden Ehrenreich, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann and Zoey Deutch took the time to field some questions at a press conference. Check out the highlights from the event below.
