This is a Beastly poster

04.01.2010

Aside from former Disney cupcake Vanessa Hudgens, my interest in BEASTLY is mostly to see if it somehow captures the same audience that made the TWILIGHT series such a monolithic moneymaker, since it's clearly aimed at fans of romantic monsters.

Here's the movie's new poster, along with the synopsis:

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating “aggressively unattractive” classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra, inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle’s callous father banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper (LisaGay Hamilton) and blind tutor (Neil Patrick Harris). As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle’s Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle’s journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic “Beauty and the Beast” story.

hehe

I would hate to be the person that has to clean up the theaters in Brooklyn after people see this movie. Hell or the firemen that have to go to the theater fires if people learn about this before it comes out.

Bad poster

Movie sounds pretty questionable as well. And Vanessa Hudgens looks unrecognizable in that shot.

"Romantic monsters" and "sympathetic slashers" are just two of the things that are wrong with Hollywood's horror output these days.

I don't mind the plot and I don't mind the actors.

But apparently the guy looks horrible, unrecognizable and "beastly" because he is bold and has tattoos everywhere?!

Who did they cast as Gaston?

Um, not sure I followed that plot. The dad is the drug addict, and the kid "saves" him by forcing the daughter to live with him. I must be missing something. Oh well, I might watch this on tv for the NPH scenes.
