Beauty And The Beast Lea Seydoux

A fairy tale from Christophe Gans, the director behind "Brotherhood of the Wolf" and "Silent Hill," leads the imagination to some vivid places, which might be why we're slightly bummed by the release of the first poster for his "Beauty and the Beast."

Starring Léa Seydoux and Vincent Cassel, a dream team pair up if there ever was one, the folks involved have long promised a more "modern" spin on the story, and one that will be more faithful to the original story by Madame de Villeneuve and address "the power of dreams and love over materialism and corruption." And that's cool and all good stuff, but this poster—which also gives us our first glimpse of the Beast—is a bit uninspiring, and looks like any number of similar movies from years past. We dare to be proven wrong though.

While there is no stateside home yet, "Beauty and the Beast" opens in France on February 12, 2014. Poster below. [AlloCine]
