Warner Bros. Pictures has unveiled the first official look at Richard LaGravenese's young adult novel-adapted film "Beautiful Creatures". Making its way out via Entertainment Weekly, the image presents a close look at Ethan Wate and Lena Duchannes, who are played by Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert respectively, sharing a passionate embrace.
Adapted from the first of a five-novel series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, "Beautiful Creatures" follows high-school student Ethan who meets and becomes bewitched by Lena. The 16-year-old girl moves to a small South Carolina town where the boy lives. The couple later must confront a curse that has haunted Lena's family for generations as she comes to grip with her powers.
The upcoming movie has stolen the attention especially since it has recently been said to become the next big thing after the "Twilight Saga" film series. Being in development since 2009, the film is still filming in New Orleans but has been scheduled to hit theaters across the U.S. on February 15, 2013.
Also starring in "Beautiful Creatures" are Viola Davis as Amma, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Lincoln, Emmy Rossum as Ridley Duchaness, Jeremy Irons as Macon Ravenwood, and Kyle Gallner as Larkin.
