“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.



Starring Angelina Jolie, Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville, Maleficent is directed by Robert Stromberg and opens on on May 30th, 2014.

Her face at the end though. I'd hit that.

Damn she's sexy. Don't know if I have any interest in the movie though. Looks good enough.

Like how they did her jaw. Hate how the 'fairies' look. Way too CGI...

@npamusic

As opposed to bringing in "real" fairies???

Pretty boring. But great job on recreating her look in live-action.
HachibiTheMC - 5/8/2014, 8:38 AM
actually looking forward to this. Not like while watching the original Disney animated movie I ever thought "hmm, I wonder what Maleficent's beef w/ the king and his daughter is?" but now that the question seemingly gets addressed by the flick it does bring that particular story aspect into more focus which is cool. Way cooler than just a live-action version of the same story like Alice in Wonderland.

I'm just hoping it wont be as anti-climactic as Oz the Great and Powerful was.

Chew it, Angie. Chew that scenery right up. This is a great role for her.

I LIKE THAT THEY TOOK LINES WORD FOR WORD FROM THE ANIMATED MOVIE...I LOVE THAT MOVIE, HANDS DOWN MY TOP FAVORITE VILLAIN IS MALEFICENT

I really hope Disney does a series of villain movies. Like I'd love a Cruella De Vil movie with someone like Cate Blanchet or Jessica Lange playing her.

@matthultz,

Nothing wrong with singer being gay. His problem is that he is a perverted child molester.

@ChrisEl Nice Assumption there genius. I guess guilty before proven innocent is the new common mindset.

Its simply impolite...to not give Angelina Jolie respect for not being one of the most epic actresses ever.
