I could have saved Warner Bros the money and told them: The lesson of Twilight was NOT that teen girls and gay men love supernatural-based thrillers, it’s that teen girls and gay men love shirtless, doe-eyed hunks and lots of them. Nobody ever listens to me. Remember when Universal tried to cash in on the hot werewolf trend by casting… Benicio del Torro as their werewolf? HA. Beautiful Creatures might be the most fascinating story ever told, but its young romantic lead looks like a doughy, 35-year-old substitute math teacher. No offense, dude. I read an interesting interview with Alden Ehrenreich in VMan, and while he’s definitely an up-and-cummer, he’s just not the next Taylor Lautnor. Which is probably a good thing (unless you work at Warner Bros).
