My Thoughts {The Beautiful Creatures Film Trailer}

Another book to film adaptations and this time The Caster Chronicles: Beautiful Creatures. The book itself was a good read with an interesting idea and concept. Who doesn't like a badass female character instead of having it the other way round? Well that definitely did appeal to me.

After watching the trailer I think there will be some perks to the film and you'll probably see me in the cinema  with lots of popcorn on February 13th 2013 ready to watch it.

The Cast:
I think as a whole the casting choices seem rather good, having quirky actors like Emma Thompson definitely is a highlight. Alice Englebert who is playing Lena Duchannes sure is close to looking the part of what I had in mind even though I expected someone with a darker feel but I sure think she'll do a good job on taking on the role and playing a fierce Lena. When I first laid eyes on Ethan's character I didn't know what to make of the actor but I think I'm warming towards him and can't wait to see how he'll portray Ethan. The other cast members seem really promising.

The Setting:
I loved the look of where the film is set, the woody and green surrounding emphasises the whole naturalistic and magical side of the book along with the old buildings and greenery.

The Plot:
This looks like a film that will stay true to the book. The glass shattering while Lena is in class is definitely accurately shown like it is described in the book. All the key moments seem to be there so I'll keep my fingers crossed.

What I really liked about the trailer was meeting the Duchannes family, there is this 'Alice in Wonderland' feel to it, like I was at a Mad Hatter's tea party which is absolutely intriguing. The effects department definitely don't let you down as there are lots of cool moments that make you go WOW. What is a magical film without it's snazzy effects and all.

If you haven't read the book and are interested I suggest you pick it up and give it a try.

The film comes out February 13th 2013.

What are your thoughts about the trailer?


  1. I'm not a fan of most book to film adaptions, for one I hate the changes in scripts and secondly the setting I have imagined is completely different to the film which I find ruins it for me. However for this adaption I have hope :)

    1. I think some book to film adaptions are good while others fail to capture the book in any way whatsoever. I'm really looking forward to how this will come out!
