Beautiful Creatures Set Video Shows A Memorable Classroom Moment
Last week, we got our first look at Beautiful Creatures' lead actors Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englert in character as Ethan and Lena respectively. Today, another look at the film adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's novel has made it way online and this one is a bit more exciting.
Beautiful Creatures is a supernatural-themed young adult novel about two teens living in the south, who soon learn of a strong connection with one another, which is tied to their family histories and the town in which they live. The recently released photo of Ethan and Lena shows a romantic moment between the two teens. But this video ventures into more dramatic territory.
MTV paid a visit to the set of the film, which is currently in production in New Orleans. The video below features some of the cast, including Ehrenreich and Englert talking about their characters and the story. It also gives us a look at the shooting of a scene from early on in the story, when Lena is the new-girl at school and dealing with some less than friendly girls in her class. (Moderate spoiler warning if you haven't read the book!)
The classroom windows shattering is a moment that takes place near the beginning of the book and gives us some indication that there's more to Lena than meets the eye, and that it's probably not a good idea to give her a hard time. From what we can see, it looks like they're making the most of that moment, with all of those windows shattering in a sort of domino-effect. Though, watching it has me curious to see if and how they'll show Lena and Ethan communicating telepathically with one another.
In addition to Ehrenreich and Englert, Beautiful Creatures stars Viola Davis, Jeremy Irons, Emmy Rossum, and Emma Thompson. The film releases into theaters February 15, 2013.
