Trailer: Christophe Gans’ “Beauty and the Beast”

After delivering the acclaimed “Brotherhood of the Wolf” and the visually interesting “Silent Hill” adaptation, filmmaker Christophe Gans is going more family friendly for his next outing.

The first trailer has arrived for Gans’ “Beauty and the Beast” starring Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel. The French-language clip has no English subtitles at present, but definitely shows off the scale and big-budget production values.

Sadly though it also looks overly familiar and decidedly kid safe, right down to a ton of cute CG creatures for the littlies. The film opens in France on February 12th 2014.
