If you're ready to work yourself into a rabid frothing frenzy of anticipation for the moment this winter when "Beautiful Creatures" finally hits the big screen, we've got just the visual aid for you! The moody, beautiful character posters for all seven major players in this supernatural southern gothic thriller are finally out in the world (via Facebook), and they're totally gorgeous. AND they're all right here for you to gaze at while sobbing and drooling and otherwise freaking out from every orifice in your face over how crazy-amazing this movie is going to be.
So lay down a waterproof tarp on your keyboard and feast your eyes on... Lena, looking lovely in busty black satin! And Ethan, oh-so-soulful underneath the live oaks! And Ridley, all sheer lace sexiness and with crazy spinning pinwheels in her eyes! And Macon, giving a whole new meaning to the term "silver fox"! And then be glad that you only have to wait a little over two months to finally see them all alive and in conflict at a theater near you, because a fangirl can only be contented with pretty poster-pictures for so long before she starts succumbing to the dark side.
Preheat your cauldron and flex your spell-casting muscles, ladies and gentlemen: the "Beautiful Creatures" movie will hit theaters only three months from now, and things are about get particularly witchy around here...only right, sorry, y'all prefer the term "casters."
The second trailer for the first film in the supernatural saga has finally hit the web, and if you like southern gothic, snazzy special effects, syrupy accents and passionate makeouts to a throbbing soundtrack of Florence and the Machine, then you're really gonna like it. (And if you don't like these things, then GET OUT OF HERE BEFORE WE TURN YOU INTO A NEWT.)
There's no denying it: The "Beautiful Creatures" teaser trailer has us spellbound!
In anticipation of last night's sneak peek of the supernatural romance, Hollywood Crush compiled an ambitious wish list of our must-see scenes. Ambitious in that, with only a minute-and-a-half of footage to mete out, we were prepared to be left wanting. But—surprise!—all of our wishes were granted in those 90 seconds. (Thank you, Warner Bros.!)
Watch the trailer after the jump, and then we'll take a closer look at how it met all our expectations!
This spring, MTV News was lucky enough to conjure up an exclusive visit to the set of the big-screen adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's novel "Beautiful Creatures," where we got all kinds of inside dish from young stars Alice Englert, Alden Ehrenreich, Thomas Mann and Zoey Deutch. But one cast member we didn't get to lay our caster-loving eyes on was Emma Thompson, who plays the dual role of Mrs. Lincoln and Serafina. Well, our friends over at NextMovie caught up with the iconic actress recently, who had plenty of praise for the supernatural screenplay.
"I thought the script was funny and witty and very much an intelligently-told, very fun story," she said. "And the part was one of the most interesting I've been asked to play in a long time."

The casting news keeps coming for our soon-to-be new favorite supernatural romance "Beautiful Creatures" (smell ya later, vampires! We're all about the Southern gothic witchery now). This book about two star-crossed lovers, secret sorcery and lots of small-town South Carolinian intrigue is one of the stories we're most psyched to see adapted for the big screen, and the latest announcement is in from the studio: ladies and gentlemen, we've got a villain. Emma Thompson is in final talks to take on two roles: Mrs. Lincoln, religious zealot, and Sarafine, the dark witch who eventually possesses her.
Emma won't be the first English actress to be putting on a drawl for the film; Jack O'Connell, who will play Ethan, is also a Brit. And considering her versatility—the lady's played everything from an Austen heroine to a Hogwarts professor to Nanny McPhee—we think she'll be fantastic in this topsy-turvy role.

Oscar-nominated British ingénue Carey Mulligan ("An Education") has been somewhat confirmed for the iconic role of Eliza Doolittle in a new film version of “My Fair Lady,” according to BBC News (via The Auteur Daily).
The latest word on the casting came straight from the mouth of actress Emma Thompson, who scripted the remake, on the red carpet for last night’s UK premiere of the family film sequel “Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang.” “I think Cary is set to play it, yes,” Thompson told BBC 5.
I saw "Love Actually" for the first time February of this year (yes a little late on the boat, I know!), and from my first viewing, I realized that it's one of the greatest films about love and Christmas to come out in the past decade. The 2003 romantic comedy has a whole slew of British acting greats that hopefully everyone has heard of, but the best part is that it's not headlined by your run-of-the-mill 20-somethings.
Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant and Emma Thompson top the cast credits, with Laura Linney adding in an American flair and Kiera Knightly took on her small role the same year "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" hit theaters and she, in turn, got huge.
