The very first teaser trailer for Emma Watson’s live action movie Beauty and the Beast is finally here!
Emma Watson has gone a long way from her Harry Potter days. The British actress, who was thought to never move on from the image of the iconic character of the teenage witch Hermione Granger, has proved that her acting skills are truly impressive. Back in 2015 she landed the main role in an upcoming Disney movie, which will bring us a live action remake of the timeless Beauty and the Beast tale. And now the very first trailer is finally here!
The teaser trailer is only a minute and a half long and it gives us quite the cinematic teaser of the Beast’s castle – from its panoramic exterior to some of its picturesque interior. We can’t see the Beast just yet, but there’s a clear shot of Emma as Belle as she’s touching the glass container holding the enchanted rose, which is measuring the time the Beast has left to find true love. The 26 year old actress will star next to Luke Evans (Gaston), Ewan McGregor (Lumiere), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), and Dan Stevens, who will be portraying the role of the Beast. According to the teaser trailer, the movie will hit theaters on the 17th of March 2017. And while that date may seem too far away in time, the trailer has already managed to score quite the achievements. Its popularity has risen tremendously since it was released earlier this May and it has managed to outshine the first trailers for box office record breakers like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Captain America: Civil War – Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ second teaser trailer hit 88 million views in the first 24 hours, while Watson’s Beauty and the Beast trailer managed to score the whopping 91.8 million views over the same period of time!
