Supernatural star-crossed romance, a small town full of secrets, and a dash of Southern gothic intrigue. That’s the recipe for Beautiful Creatures, the latest movie offering for the Twilight set. Richard LaGravenese (P.S. I Love You) wrote and directed the South Carolina-set adaptation of Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl’s young adult novel, the first in a trilogy of books. In development since 2009, Creatures recently started shooting in New Orleans. Now EW has your first look at a romantic (dare I say sparkling?) scene between Ethan Wate (Alden Ehrenreich) and Lena Duchannes (Alice Englert), the mysterious girl of his dreams — literally. Check it out below.
