First Glimpse Of 'The Beast' In Poster For Christophe Gans' BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

The very first one-sheet for Brotherhood Of The Wolf/Silent Hill director Christophe Gans' upcoming take on the classic fairytale has been released, featuring a new look at 'Beauty' (Léa Seydoux) an dour first at 'Beast' (Vincent Cassel)..

There have been numerous versions of this story already, from Disney's much loved animated feature to the recent travesty Beastly. Guillermo Del Toro is also said to be interested in directing his own take with Harry Potter's Emma Watson, and there is another French version of the story out there too; the bizarre 1975 flick La Bête (The Beast). There have been a few comic book adaptations too, including a limited series from Marvel with X-Men's Beast and Dazzler! Gans also wrote the screenplay of the French language version, with a budget of around €33 million ($43.2 million). Silent Hill is generally considered to be among the best video game adaptations out there (not exactly difficult I know), and his genre mixing Brotherhood Of The Wolf is something of a flawed masterpiece imo so I'm looking forward to this.

No US/UK release dates yet, but the movie opens in France on February 12, 2014.

revloveR - 9/27/2013, 11:58 AM
lea seydoux? I'm in. or at least, I'd like to be.
TheRationalNerd - 9/27/2013, 12:00 PM
I don't know if I'm sold on the cgi beast. I think Del Toro's will look more believable since he's really good with Monster make-up! :) Still looking forward towards seeing both adaptions.
MexicanSexyman - 9/27/2013, 12:05 PM
He looks evil.

Put 'em up. Put 'em up.

I find it ironic that the actor playing the Beast is named Vincent in real life when there was Ron Perlman who played the Beast named Vincent.
RorMachine - 9/27/2013, 12:15 PM
He's always depicted as a Lion..they should have went a different route.
DCwanabe - 9/27/2013, 12:16 PM
^^Thats not ironic thats just coincidental - Bender

@RorMachine...different route, you say?

Much better.
RorMachine - 9/27/2013, 12:23 PM
Eh, no not that. I dunno, try a different animal! There are plenty of bests in the world. A fish maybe:)
NOLANITE - 9/27/2013, 12:34 PM

Del Toro is making a Beauty & the Beast movie?
Angelus - 9/27/2013, 12:39 PM
Beauty and the Beast is the greatest Disney movie of all time. I am not sure if I will watch this though!
JoeMomma29 - 9/27/2013, 12:52 PM
Hmmmm B & Y could qualify as a beast!

JoeMomma29 - 9/27/2013, 12:53 PM
Though Gusto is into peace so he would not make a good beast!

Lion-face... again?! The DISNEY version is MORE SCARRY than this. WTF? This man filmed "Brotherhood of the Wolf" ("Le Pacte des loups") - one of the best movies ever, he is epic great director, so why he turn Cassel in Lion Aslan? What the hell?

And this will be a PG-13 kindergarten movie?
RorMachine - 9/27/2013, 1:17 PM
Lol, this Soundwave guy cracks me up.

Menacing and cuddly.

When do we get emma watson???
Havenless - 9/27/2013, 3:34 PM
For those of you who don't know, Lea Seydoux let's her sweater puppies out for long periods of time in just about every one of her movies (it's allowed in France when you're under 18).

I wonder if this movie will be rated R.

And Vincent Cassel is the Marovingian from the Matrix.

THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 9/27/2013, 3:58 PM
Looks good. But this isn't the one with Emma Watson?
JohnnyCloud - 9/27/2013, 4:44 PM
@Havenless, the Merovingian was played by Lambert Wilson, not Vincent Cassel.

@GodOfMischief, Beauty and the Beast is a very old tale going back to Roman times.
The best versions in writing or on film are European.

Why is the Beast always "lion-y"? Do they describe that way in the book?
riseofloganX36 - 9/27/2013, 7:57 PM

So let me get this strait. You people are bitching about this but Hank looks perfectly fine in x-men first ass?!?!?! This is what the beuty and the beast should look like.

RaKita - 9/27/2013, 9:09 PM
@ worldbreaker

That's not Ron perlman. Harry was played by Kevin Peter Hall, aka Predator.
DelTorite - 9/27/2013, 10:28 PM
I love Brotherhood of the Wolf, so I'm looking forward to this one, it will probably have topless scenes. =D
