We’re going to need a new word for a trailer that’s shorter than a teaser. The first teensy-tiny-teaser for Beastly, a modern-day spin on the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast has come online and it’s 23 seconds long. It’s actually 17 seconds because the MPAA green-band is on screen for six seconds. The trailer informs us that the young protagonist (Alex Pettyfer) is our “ugliness turn inside out,” after goth girl Kendra (Mary-Kate Olson) puts a curse on him. But Vanessa Hudgens sees the beauty inside because she’s hot and he’s hot too but he’s just under a curse so it’s not his fault. They find a connection but without singing and dancing house hold items, why bother? However, Neil Patrick and Peter Krause also star so that’s something.
