“Beautiful Creatures” Interview and other Supernatural Romances

19th January 2013

Although the Twilight saga was done and dusted a few months ago (bar the threats of a spin-off TV series still looming), it seems like Hollywood is not finished with supernatural romances. In fact, 2013 is set to be positively brimming with them.

One of two big franchises hitting the silver screens this year is The Mortal Instruments: A City of Bones; Lily Collins stars as Clary, a girl who discovers she’s a “Shadow Hunter” and is wrapped up in a reluctant love triangle between her human best friend and another Hunter.

Then we’ve got The Host, another Stephenie Meyer creation, where a girl inhabited by a parasitic alien is then split between two hunky humans. Meyer has announced she plans to write a trilogy, so this certainly has the potential to get as weird as Twilight did (werewolf imprinting a half-vampire baby, anyone?).

Just round the corner is the release of Warm Bodies, starring Nicholas Hoult as a zombie who falls for the human girlfriend of one of his victims, and is set to hit screens on February the 1st.

We also spoke to the stars of Beautiful Creatures this week, a film based on the novel of the same name. In this dangerous love affair, Ethan gets more than he bargained for when Lena turns out to be a witch (“Caster”), who is soon to be claimed forever by the Light or the Dark.

Alden Ehrenreich and Alice Englehert told us a little bit more about their characters, if they were aware of the book’s following beforehand and why it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day movie.

The Film Show is at the same time next week, Friday at 6pm!
