Having dabbled in films both large and small, moving between television and film, Emmy Rossum has earned her place as an intriguing young actress who greatly enhances the material around her. The next logical step would be for her to finally play the villain, and in “Beautiful Creatures” she plays Ridley, cousin to young potential sorceress Lena Ducane, an over-the-top role that allowed Rossum to let her freak flag fly.

We may not know much about "Beautiful Creatures" mostly because we're probably too old for the Young Adult demo the book series and movie are aiming for, but from what we've seen so far in both pictures and the first trailer, Emmy Rossum is looking to be one to watch. And another new image from the movie backs up that notion (and it seems the Warner Bros. marketing department agrees).

It's a bit of good news/bad news for Italian Robsten fans. The good news: the epic conclusion to the vampire story of our time, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2" will make its world premiere at the Rome Film Festival. The bad news? Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart won't be there. That red carpet just shed a single tear. But is this a sign the 'Breaking Dawn -- Part 2' press jaunt will have significantly less participation by its two leads as they work their relationship out? While the studio has insisted plans will go forth as planned, one wonders...

An outsider with strange powers, a human who understands and forces beyond their control....no, we're not talking about "Twilight." Instead, it's "Beautiful Creatures," Warner Bros. stab at the YA pie that Summit and Lionsgate have conquered heartily with the vampire series and "The Hunger Games" respectively. Now it's time for the major studio play -- do they have what it takes?

So, will Warner Bros. strike "Twilight" or "The Hunger Games" sized gold with "Beautiful Creatures," another young adult novel adaptation? Well, they might if they actually started marketing the thing, which comes out in about five months. But until a trailer drops, we'll have to do with some stills from the flick instead, which certainly don't hid the fantasy elements that are a big part of this story.

In case you haven't been paying attention, the young adult book movie adaptation era is upon us. The 'Twilight' series has already proven there are buckets of money to be made, "The Hunger Games" is going to be duplicating that success in years to come, and in 2013, two more franchises will be hoping to cash in as well. Sony has "The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones" gearing up to go into production for release next August, but Warner Bros. has already wrapped on "Beautiful Creatures," which they hope will get their New Year off to the fresh start.

We gotta admit, Alden Ehrenreich as a potential franchise star for a series of young adult books leaping to the big screen, is still a hard concept to adjust to. But like it or not, it's coming, and the actor, who has mostly been playing around with the Coppolas ("Tetro," "Twixt," "Somewhere"), could be a name girls start writing on their binders with hearts around it (do kids even use binders these days?).

So, will "Beautiful Creatures" be the next "The Hunger Games"-sized Young Adult hit? That's what Warner Bros. is hoping for as they are putting the final casting pieces in place for the big screen adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl's novel.

Alden Ehrenreich...franchise star? That looks like it could be the case. The indie darling and Coppola fave (appearing in Sofia's "Somewhere" and Francis' "Tetro" and "Twixt") isn't a stranger to franchise movies, having tested last fall for Warner Bros' stuck-in-development-hell "Akira," but now he's making a move that will put him in front of his biggest audience yet.

Today sees the release of "The Hunger Games," the much anticipated adaptation of the popular young adult novel series about a future in which children are forced to compete in a fight to the death for the entertainment of the overclass, and to help their district fight off starvation. The books have been bestsellers, and Lionsgate have pegged the film to be their own answer to another hugely popular teen-skewing franchise, vampire romances "Twilight." And it looks as if the gamble has paid off, with most prognosticators pegging the film to open well over $100 million in the U.S. this weekend.
