“La Belle et la Bête” Trailer

_______________________________________________

This may not be Jean Cocteau classic, but something must explain its current opening success in Italy. There are things here I like: Vincent Cassel as Beast/Prince, a powerful soundtrack and 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 also see other Disney animation-themed movies soon. Joe Wright is directing “Pan” (2015), “the origin” story of Peter Pan staring Hugh Jackman; “Maleficent” (2014) with Angelina Jolie is coming soon, and we anticipate (for years now) “a darker version” of the fairytale “Pinocchio” (2016) – an animated film directed by Guillermo del Toro.

  1. Yeah, I read about Pan they cast Rooney Mara so that’s a big win! 🙂
    This could be good, I like that Léa Seydoux is Belle.

      Really. That’s good. Well, the only fault I can find in Seydoux is that Belle is a brunette – that’s like an unspoken ‘law’ which must be obeyed at all times. Haha, and, well you’re speaking from a male’s point of view, and I am – from a female’s 😛 I like Vincent Cassel as Beast/Prince, but I also like the fact that they cast Eduardo Noriega as some character called Perducas. I liked Noriega in ‘Open Your Eyes’, he is like a Spanish answer to Cassel – would be nice to see their dynamics.

      • Oh nice!
        I didn’t know she was supposed to be a brunette, I’m not as familiar with the story. I should really watch Cocteau’s film and also stop assuming that everyone on the internet is a dude 🙂

  2. Trailer seems promising, rest will come up after it release…
