The images are in the latest issue of Total Film (via GamesRadar), and reveal one section of Beast's rundown castle. He can be seen standing next to Belle (Emma Watson) in one of the untouched rooms, lit only by the lone window's light. You can see what looks to be an easel, a bed in the corner, and a crib, meaning that this could have been his room as a child. The second photo shows a close-up of the Beast with a rather grimaced look on his face.
The second set of photos features Luke Evans as Gaston in a scene most will recognize from the original. He's inciting the crowd to storm the Beast's castle. For those who remember the over the top character from the animated classic, you'll recognize this version as well, as Evans says "We didn’t tone [Gaston] down. I think we did the opposite. Everything he does, he does extremely. There was no point trying to find a way to tone it down."
You can view the new images in the gallery. Total Film goes on sale January 17.
Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle.
