Beauty and the Beast Movie
Beauty and the Beast: Depiction of eternal love story of a beauty and a beast with fabulous production
Beauty and the Beast has everything from the special effects to costumes and from voice-overs to songs first rated. It is a classic fairy-tale story and it doesn’t matter whether you like Disney princesses and their tales as you’ll fall in love with Belle the princess in this movie. But don’t get afraid from the beast and don’t take him as a beast as he’s a fairly handsome prince turned into a beast by an enchantress.
It is long story and could have been told many times but Bill Condon and his team is all set to take you to a journey into the past where there are castles, verdant greenery and talking candelabra and mantel clock. They all are castles enchanting staff and you’ll become fan of each and every staff turned into household objects by the enchantress. For voice-over of the castle staff, Condon took finest actors including Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci.
Performance of Dan Stevens as the best is decent if not memorable and Emma Watson looks real in the role of Belle. Stevens has got a terrifying CGI makeover but it is needed to give the necessary thrust to the role Stevens is playing. The third important character is of a hare-brained Romeo who is in love with Belle and wants to get her attention at any cost is played by a promising actor Luke Evans. Also Kevin Kline looks responsible in the role of Belle’s father.
What makes Beauty and the Beast stand out from other movies is its significance. It is still relevant and no matter how old the story is or how many times the story has been told. Beauty and the Beast story looks new from every point. But the depiction of the love story between Belle and the Beast isn’t as good as the grandeur of this spectacular production is.
Beauty and the Beast first look and poster
The poster has got a bookish look. The beauty and the beast are shown back-to-back with Watson holding a red rose and Stevens in his terrifying outfit. Below are other characters and they are surrounding door of the castle where the beast lives. The poster has got a fairy look. It is deep blue in color and name of the movie is written with silver color in the middle of the poster. It is giving a feel of the story.
