What to watch: Beastly

If you’re eagerly counting down the 42 days until the new live action Beauty and the Beast film is released (no, you’re the one who’s obsessed), we’ve got something that might make the time pass a little quicker.

Beastly is available on Netflix right now, no waiting. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s basically another retelling of Beauty and the Beast… but instead of turning into a hairy bisony-liony thing, the beast turns into an ugly man with super intense tattoos and scars all over his body and face.

He’s played by the very un-beastly Alex Pettyfer, and considering it’s so under the radar, the cast for the movie is so choc-full of cool faces you’ll need IMBD on second screen throughout. Belle is played by Vanessa Hudgens, Mary-Kate Olsen is the witch and Neil Patrick Harris seems to make an appearance as a blind man. Even Dakota Johnson is in it.

If that lot won’t tide you over till Emma Watson makes her yellow-dress debut (42 days) then we don’t know what will.
