A new trailer for the YA adaptation Beautiful Creatures has been released online. The Southern supernatural romance centers on two mystically charged teens who are mysteriously drawn to one another despite never having met, and uncover some unsettling secrets about their families and the small southern town in which they live. I found the first trailer intriguing yet a tad confusing, but this clip really digs into the plot and makes Beautiful Creatures look like a lot of fun. We see a lot more of the characters played by Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, and Viola Davis, and it’s starting to make sense why actors of their caliber signed on; Thompson in particular looks to be having a blast chewing the scenery.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Alice Englert, Alden Ehrenreich, and Emmy Rossum. Beautiful Creatures opens on February 13, 2013.
