CBS Films has released the second trailer for Daniel Barnz’s Beastly, a modern day telling of “Beauty and the Beast” starring Vanessa Hudgens, AlexPettyfer, Mary-Kate Olsen, Neil Patrick Harris, and Peter Krause. The latest trailer enters “emo code red” as Pettyfer (who plays the “Beast”) appears to be one of the whiniest little pussies every caught on film. The footage amps up the romance and drops Neil Patrick Harris (wearing Cyclops’ glasses) into the mix as a blind friend who sees how super cool Pettyfer is on the inside. Awwwww. My heart is melting. Seriously though, this has to be one of the worst trailers of the year. Thank god this movie will be out and gone by March 18th. What say you?
“When a spell is cast on a handsome egocentric young man (Alex Pettyfer) that physically transforms him into everything he despises, he has one year to find a young woman (Vanessa Hudgens) who will love him despite his hideous form or the spell will last forever.”
