New Beauty and the Beast TV spot and poster

January 9th, 2017 by Marc Comments

A new poster and TV spot for the live action version of Beauty and the Beast have been released.

During the TV spot which is eerily similar to the animated classic, above, Emma Watson is seen singing ‘Belle’.

Beauty and the Beast stars the aforementioned actress as Belle; Dan Stevens is the Beast; Luke Evans is Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline is Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father and Oscar nominee Ian McKellen is Cogsworth, the mantel clock.

The film is set for release on March 17.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
