Two Clips from 'Beautiful Creatures' - Franchise Starter or One and Done?

Beautiful Creatures posterI can't quite tell what to make of Beautiful Creatures. Clearly Warner Bros. is making an attempt to kickstart a new young adult franchise considering we're talking about a film adapted from the best-selling series of novels by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, but a February release date isn't exactly favorable placement.

The film is described as a supernatural love story set in the South, telling the story 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. Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum and Emma Thompson co-star.

Today two new clips from the film have arrived online to give you a closer look. Have a peek and see what you think.

    I saw the trailer last week at the theatre, and it was the first time I paid a little attention to it, and it looks pretty bad, so just with the trailer, I think it will be a "one and done" situation.

    The book series is incredible, so I'm hopeful this will be a good adaption. The material is fantastic.

    So then, the books are really good? I'll give them a shot.
    I loved the Twilight book series and then suffered thru 5 crap films and an even crappier PR-mance called Robsten that overshadowed it. Vampire Diaries and Evermore turned me off Young Adult books. Yet I still get sucked in by these trailers.
