"There is evil in this world, hatred and revenge."
I must say I do have my reservations regarding this movie. I fear it will be all too cheesy for my taste. But that being said, I'm still a tad bit intrigued, especially after seeing Disney's latest trailer for Maleficent, which gives us a much better idea of what's in store. It still looks a little cheesy, but I will hold all judgements until after I see the movie. I do love Lana Del Rey's haunting version of Once Upon a Dream though. It adds a marvelous sense of mystery and darkness to the story. Nice touch. See for yourself...
Robert Stromberg (a production designer on Alice in Wonderland and Avatar) is making his directorial debut with Maleficent. The script is written by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast). Angelina Jolie plays the iconic villain from the classic Disney film Sleeping Beauty in this live-action spin that also stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Elle Fanning as Sleeping Beauty - kind of miscast in my opinion - (Super 8), Sam Riley (On the Road), Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Juno Temple (Atonement) and more. Disney sends Maleficent to theaters everywhere in 3D on May 30th, 2014. Visit the film's official website.
Look any good?
