New 'Beauty and the Beast' Trailer Features That Classic Song

Image
Beauty and the Beasttook third place on Fandango's recent survey of themost anticipated movies of 2017. Considering how beloved the original animated film is, that's not too surprising on its own, but it's extra impressive when you consider it leads the likes ofWonder Woman,Spider-Man: Homecoming,Justice LeagueandLogan. It's all because Disney's new Beauty and the Beastis a perfect storm of source material, nostalgia, and raw talent. Most movies can work wonders with just two of those ingredients, but all three? That's when true movie magic happens.

So instead of two panes of glass being broken, you see one gigantic piece fractured over the course of two images. Kevin has literally fractured David's world in this visual metaphor, which is interesting considering where M. Night Shyamalan is going with these movies.

The existence of superpowered/special ability wielding humans, such as David, Kevin, and to the alternative extent, Mr. Glass. With the discovery of such persons, the world will start to change in order to combat any threats these people may pose to the rest of the wo…
