I went to see The Back-up Plan yesterday with my mom and sister, and saw the previews for this movie Beastly. My favorite Disney movie has always been Beauty and the Beast (well along with Peter Pan), and this movie looks like a really wicked cool version of the Beauty and the Beast. I'm so excited! I can't wait to see it!

Kyle Kingson (Alex Pettyfer) has it all – looks, intelligence, wealth and opportunity – and a wicked cruel streak. Prone to mocking and humiliating "aggressively unattractive" classmates, he zeroes in on Goth classmate Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), inviting her to the school’s extravagant environmental bash. Kendra accepts, and, true to form, Kyle blows her off in a particularly savage fashion. She retaliates by casting a spell that physically transforms him into everything he despises. Enraged by his horrible and unrecognizable appearance he confronts Kendra and learns that the only solution to the curse is to find someone that will love him as he is – a task he considers impossible.

Repulsed by his appearance, Kyle's callous father banishes him to Brooklyn with a sympathetic housekeeper and blind tutor. As Kyle ponders how to overcome the curse and get his old life back, he chances upon a drug addict in the act of killing a threatening dealer. Seizing the opportunity, Kyle promises the addict freedom and safety for his daughter, Lindy (Vanessa Hudgens) if she will consent to live in Kyle's Brooklyn home. Thus begins Kyle's journey to discover true love in this hyper-modern retelling of the classic "Beauty and the Beast" story.

  2. I want to see this movie so badly. I hope I'm not disappointed. I doubt it since MK Olsen is doing it.

  3. Sounds great, i haven't heard anything about it before.

  4. Oh this looks SO wonderfully trashy. In the good sense, of course!

  5. ooohhh... a reinvention of the classic beauty and the beast.. sounds promising.. :)
