Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, Emmy Rossum, Thomas Mann and Kyle Gallner round out the cast.
Nothing says romance like Southern gothic and sorcery -- at least, that's what the team behind the new teen romance flick "Beautiful Creatures" hopes. Alden: Yes, I've seen the first 30 minutes with Russian dubbing.
"Beautiful Creatures" star Alden Ehrenreich is just 23 years old, not that his hair would agree. " Ehrenreich asked Huff Post Entertainment while climbing on top of, and then crawling across, a conference table at New York's Warner Bros. ("Oh my god, I'm gonna hit you in the head really hard," Englert quipped at Ehrenreich after a bit of playful teasing.) After asking if it's okay to do so, both doodle pictures of each other throughout the interview, explaining "it makes the answers better." Englert and Ehrenreich spoke to Huff Post Entertainment about choosing the film, their love for "Columbo," and those pesky "Twilight" comparisons. I said no three times just to auditioning -- it wasn't an offer. Of all the movies I was reading -- big, small, genre, indie, whatever -- this had the best characters and the best relationships and the best dynamics. "Twilight." It just was that it was this kind of, "They're trying to capitalize on 'Twilight.'" I didn't see the "Twilight" movies, I have no point of view on the "Twilight" movies, but it didn't sound like it.
" When asked if he was greying from the stress of filming and promoting "Beautiful Creatures," the fantasy film that is being both heralded and critiqued as the next "Twilight," Alice Englert, Ehrenreich's co-star, answered for him. The chemistry between the two is palpable in the film, and perhaps even more so in person. While this is still a commercial movie, when I read the script it was very clear that both from the book, but also what Richard had brought to it, that it was a really personal point of view. It was clear to me that it was a personal story and it had its own very unique atmosphere, and language, and culture to it, and was nothing like anything else I was reading.
Hitting theaters today, the film stars 18-year-old Alice Englert as Lena Duchannes, a high school student moonlighting as a witch (or, in the film's parlance, a "caster") and coming to grips with her powers in the sleepy town of Gatlin, South Carolina.
Throughout all these experiences, it supplemented a lot of the work that I didn't have time to do.He plays Ethan Wate, the mortal boy (un)lucky enough to meet Lena and get pulled into her chaotic life in the months leading up to her 16th birthday, when the true nature of her powers will be revealed. Next Movie caught up with the two young stars in New York City earlier this week. Alice: It's not horrible, but the first time is always just actually confusing for your mind, because it's hard to process just seeing yourself up there, very large and in the situation that you, in a medium you've seen many times before. It's not excruciating, it's just usually boring for me.
