Second Cheesy Official Trailer for Alex Pettyfer's 'Beastly' Appears
It's what's underneath. CBS Films has debuted a second official trailer for Beastly, the new contemporary teen-focused take on Beauty and the Beast starring Alex Pettyfer. We haven't actually featured any trailers for this before, even though there was one earlier this year, but that is mostly because this honestly doesn't look that good. Anyway, Moviefone has debuted the latest trailer and I suggest most of you stay away, as it's probably just going to make you angry, considering it looks about as cheesy as anything can get. I guess the only good part is that Neil Patrick Harris has a role as his blind mentor of sorts. Watch at your own risk!
Watch the second official trailer for Daniel Barnz's Beastly:
A modern take on the "Beauty and the Beast" story where a New York teen (Alex Pettyfer) is transformed into a hideous monster in order to learn how to see past all false surfaces and discover true inner beauty.
Beastly is both written and directed by Daniel Barnz, whose feature debut was the charming indie Phoebe in Wonderland with Elle Fanning. The script was adapted by Barnz from Alex Flinn's novel of the same name. After delaying the film for quite a while, CBS Films has finally set Beastly to open on March 18th early next year. Personally, I am going to be seeing Simon Pegg & Nick Frost's Paul that day. Anyone interested at all?

They had me at "she's very into roses". Had me laughing that is. It's like powder with staff infection from shooting Heroin. Seriously though. Girls loves pretty boys. Girls like emo boys. Girls like boys with tribal tattoos. Girls dig scars. Pretty boy with tribal tattoo-looking scars in full emo mode = DUUUHH

if he sparkled, then they would've had 80 million dumb teenagers thinking they can get so lucky with this life...

This is hypocritical garbage. Even his supposed ugliness has a hip look to it lol.

The novel was actually a really good YA adaptation of the original Beauty and the Beast tale. The issue with this is that they seem to have changed some major aspects of the story and felt the need to only cast pretty people. If they'd stuck to the novel, this could have had potential to be a good movie for the junior high/hs set.

One of the most offensive trailers I've seen in a long time.

I thought the same thing #10. Should've had a hump or limp or something. I'll see it when it comes on cable.
arjones on Dec 4, 2010
Garbage. Surprised to see Alex Pettfer again though. Remeber when he was in Stormbreaker.

LOL NO THANKS. But Alex Pettyfer is damn fine. Damn fine.

Doesn't look worse than Freddy Got Fingered...
The Credenza Kid on Dec 4, 2010
@#11 - Ditto. I thought it might be a decent re-telling for teens, but like #10 said, even his ugliness is done in a way to make it seem hip. I mean, I can image some "rebellious" teen doing some of that to himself, scars aside, to feel unique and cool. Ugh!

Oh... My... God...

The scars and tattoos ok, but would ppl not question why he has metal shit on his face?
gnjnmjrtm on Dec 5, 2010
Well in a sense I can understand why they chose to portray the beast that way, because in our society today people can consider an appearance like that to be ugly and even "Beastly". Other than that, this looks like some sort of hallmark special. Better than Twilight is my argument. :/

@ The Credenza Kid. Freddy Got Fingered is one of the best films ever made, it's fucking golden. I found some treasure http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tEgcM9NAaps

You're all being quite really rude over a movie. That is what it is just a movie. Its actually adapted from a novel that was quite good. To say the you nearly vomited or to claim it is garbage is really offensive to the creators, author and actors. So it may not be your idea of a great movie, so what nobody is forcing you to watch it. Whilst it may seem dumb to you it may be a movie that others would enjoy seeing. To bad mouth something over the trailer is just ignorance.

Wow. This is so hypocritical. They're claiming looks aren't what's important, but not only is Alex Pettyfer not even unattractive in 'beastly' form, naturally the girl that sees past his supposed ugliness is beautiful. The real test would have been, Would Alex Pettyfer's character have been able to fall in love with HER if she wasn't beautiful?
