Beastly Trailer Video Features Alex Pettyfer 2010-04-20 07:30:00

Beauty and Beast Goes 21st Century in This Beastly Trailer

I'm so very confused about this trailer for Beastly. It's kind of campy at first, dramatizing the personality of its douchey protagonist named Kyle (Alex Pettyfer), as he dismisses everyone in his high school who's not as good-looking as he is. Things really go over the top with the addition of an, um, teen witch in Mary-Kate Olsen, who curses him with ugliness, purring that he has a year to find someone to love him in this form.

Vanessa Hudgens is the substance-over-style outcast he connects with, and it's all very Twilight, but then a blind Neil Patrick Harris shows up. Say it with me: "Bwhaaa?" Apparently NPH is some sort of tutor, and I don't know if this makes the movie look better or not. Then, they pull out their trump card: emotive Death Cab for Cutie classic "Transatlanticism." It gives a false sense of depth to a film that I fear may need a little help in that area. I do tend to enjoy melodramatic romance, though, and maybe I'm looking a little too critically at Beastly. Anyway, to decide for yourself and see the trailer, just

Aww... I'm actually excited to see this. I'm sure it's not going to be great cinema or anything, but I'm a sucker for cheezy teen love stories. On an unrelated note, is it just me, or does Alex Pettyfer's voice sound EXACTLY like Tom Cruise's?

I was also expecting worse after reading the intro but it seems like a modern day twist on a classic Beauty and the Beast.

I actually think the movie is good. I mean, not Oscar worthy good but good. Hey! Let's give Vanessa a chance. I know she had a reputation but at least compared to other young stars, she doesn't party too much ( as of now) ending up in DUI and her relationship with Zac lasting almost 5 years is pretty impressive. I think she's taking her career seriously and this is a good break for her. It is somewhat different from Disney movies and she has grown in terms of her acting. As a matter of fact, she's growing on me.

WTF? I can't stand Vanessa might have been slightly less cringe worthy without her.

the story is a wonderful one; a tortured love story with an ancient moral but vanessa hudgens and MKO's painfully bad acting and the cheesy modernisms just make it terrible. the guy is cute, though; the ugly version of him is just strange, though...

I don't think it looks that bad... is that just my inner bad-movie-lover coming out?

I was bracing myself for something worse. Probably not my cup of tea, but kudos for getting NPH on board!

yeah, and the addition of neil patrick harris doesn't seem to help at all. vanessa can't act, the guy takes himself waay to seriously, overall, i'll wait for dvd...maybe (i read the book which was an okay concept, an interesting twist on the story).

Some of the special effects make him look ugly, but mostly he just looks like he has random punk tattoos.
