Christophe Gan's remake of the 1946 classic fairy tale Le Belle et le Bête (AKA The Beauty and the Beast) hasn't exactly been met with the critical acclaim of the original version. Indeed, currently the movie only stands at 24% on Metacritic.com. However, although the movie might not be impressing audiences, the concept art is still something to behold.
