Trailer: “Beauty and the Beast” Starring Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel

Léa Seydoux (Blue Is the Warmest Color, Midnight in Paris) and Vincent Cassel (Black Swan, Eastern Promises) star in the newest adaptation of the French fairy tale “Beauty and the Beast.” Filmmaker Jean Cocteau first adapted the fairy tale for film in 1946 with La Belle et la Bête, starring Josette Day as Beauty and Jean Marais as the Beast; Disney released an animated version in 1991. Currently, director Guillermo Del Toro also has a “Beauty and the Beast” film in the works with Emma Watson cast as Beauty.

Judging from the trailer below, Christopher Gans’ Beauty and the Beast will involve plenty of special effects, sweeping scenery, elaborate costumes, and… strange, bug-eyed creatures.
