‘La Belle et La Bête’ Trailer

Ok, this may be far from Jean Cocteau classic, but something must explain its current opening success in Italy. There are things here that I like: Vincent Cassel cast as Beast/Prince, a very powerful soundtrack and seemingly great visuals. I hear the story does not live up to all the visuals, but it’s a rule, rather than an exception today. Apparently, there is another ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie to be announced with Emma Watson in it, but we will see a number of Disney-themed films in the next couple of years. Joe Wright is directing ‘Pan’ (2015), ‘the origin’ story of the character Peter Pan staring Hugh Jackman. ‘Maleficent’ (2014) with Angelina Jolie is coming soon, and sure, we anticipate (for years now) “a darker version” of the fairytale ‘Pinocchio’ (an animated film with Guillermo del Toro as a director).
