Disney's Maleficent - "Dream" Trailer

What are your thoughts about the upcoming movie?

Why do we have a trailer for Maleficent here? The easy answer is, "Why not?" The character has appeared in several different comics. This new trailer was just released and I'm curious what the thought is around here. Sure it's not a superhero movie but check it out.

“Maleficent” explores the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the classic “Sleeping Beauty" and the elements of her betrayal that ultimately turn her pure heart to stone. Driven by revenge and a fierce desire to protect the moors over which she presides, Maleficent cruelly places an irrevocable curse upon the human king’s newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy. Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

The film stars Angelina Jolie as Maleficent, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.

Hmm. She's not green. Is she going to turn into a dragon? I'll definitely check it out.

Maleficent opens in theaters on May 30, 2014.

Edit

Award-winning, American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey has recorded a unique reimagining of the renowned fairy-tale tune from Disney’s classic animated film “Sleeping Beauty,” which will feature in the end credits of the upcoming Disney film.

Lana Del Rey’s “Once Upon a Dream” is free for a limited time, only on Google Play, Google’s online store offering digital music, movies, books, games and more. The song was made available as a free download today and will be available exclusively on Google Play through Monday, February 3rd [http://smarturl.it/ldrgps1].

Angela Jolie already works at Marvel she could play a female Loki by the look of that custom in the next Thor movie

Boom!

Jolie looked great as Maleficent, trailer was great, I might go see this.

Jolie looks great for this role. The makeup artists can really play with her face and make it look perfect.

I've been excited for this since I found out about it last year.

You could put a person's eyes out with those cheek bones.

Edited by justice teen

@avenging_x_bolt: Same here. If the movies is done like the Show Once Upon A Time then it will be epic, because there is nothing better then seeing how the villain went from pure and good to wicked and evil.

Could be interesting but won't be as good as the original Sleeping Beauty

Posted by Perfect 10

it has angelina and magic how can i NOT be psyched for it. she is killing it, so deliciously good at being bad. DIVA! though it most likely wont give an origin which i would like to see and is basically a retelling of sleeping beauty (yawn). here's hoping disney dont mess it up.

and was that angelina singing in the trailer?

Posted by G-Man

@perfect_10: I updated the post. It was Lana Del Rey singing.

Lana Del Ray has sort of sold me but not yet.

Posted by sentryman555

This seems to be slowly becoming a new trend. The different take on fairy tales. You have the show Once upon a time, then a game just came out based on fables, and their was also wicked. I hope they don't over-use this concept too much.

Posted by Crimsonlord53

Well that is going to be a strange crowd going to see this movie which is a good thing I think. Is it a retelling of sleeping beauty or is it based on the book wicked?

Posted by RaggedScarecrow

@crimsonlord53: It's a retelling of Sleeping Beauty from Maleficiant's point of view. I see your point though, I can't really tell what kind of audience this film is trying to draw in.

The film certainly looks good visually, but I've learned to never trust trailers. I'll probably wait and see what critics have to say about this before I consider going to watch it.

Sold. I hope its not a rip off of Lord of the Rings, but it looks pretty cool.

Posted by ARMIV2

I am so very much hoping that this doesn't in any way, shape, or form suck.

Posted by PATTX

Demon Knights movie should be like this

Posted by New_World_Order

Awesome!

Posted by Lvenger

Better than the first trailer but I'm not a fan of the film taking a Wicked esque path by trying to sympathise the mistress of all evil and one of the best Disney villains after Hades IMO.

Posted by laabitres

this looks amazing, but i feel like the movie is gonna be more about the villain instead of sleeping beauty lol

@kazekaine1: @allstarsuperman: @the_stegman: @ccraft:

No but seriously, I'v just never seen her in any roles of substance, she seems just do roles where she needs to act sexy and not a lot else.

Gia , Bone collector , Changeling , Salt , Tourist are all great films and none of which she is portrayed as a sex symbol in, and if you want some laughs mr and mrs smith is great.

FOR REALS!? Its been a very long time since I saw the cartoon and yes that villain was indeed dark, and now re-imagined by the writer of Batman? I'm game to see this. >:D
