With The Twilight Saga coming to a close last year, Hollywood is in a mad scramble to find something, anything to fill that void. The dystopian Hunger Games is perhaps too violent and edgy to appeal to Twihards, while Warm Bodies's undead spin on the romantic comedy - though a box office hit - feels a little out of step with the world of Edward and Bella.
Beautiful Creatures, based on the novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, takes a much more direct route into the fantasy romance world of Twilight. We get the shy, pretty girl, the handsome boy and the rural America setting, but in writer/director Richard Lagravenese's film the perspective switches.
It's Alden Ehrenreich's Ethan Wate who serves »
