Disney just unveiled the official trailer for its upcoming "Maleficent" movie, which is based on the popular "Sleeping Beauty" villain who will be played by Angelina Jolie. Check out the trailer below.
Plot: A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent (Jolie) has an idyllic life growing up in a forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal — an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom — and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well.
The new movie is directed by Robert Stromberg and co-stars Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, and Juno Temple. It's set to hit theaters on May 30th, 2014.

Should be titled Malignant, which would better describe how I feel about her.

Looks utterly disposable. Anyone remember last year's Snow White and the Huntsman? Or even this year's Oz The Great and Powerful or Jack the Giant Slayer? Yeah, neither do I. Expect this to suffer the same fate. Fantasy films such as these are too generic to last.
Also, while I'm sure Jolie has done a lotta good for the third-world, as a movie star she's fairly one-note. And not a particularly interesting note at that. Though, I still remember the good ol' days of Original Sin Unrated Cut. So does my d*ck.
They can't do worse than Snow White and the Huntsman...

@Bando: the only thing anyone anywhere wants to see Mila Kunis do is take off her clothes and lick her lips. That's it. She's a hot little babe and that's the only reason her and 99% of all the other current actresses even have a job in the business, because if the studios demanded genuine stage talent, most of these chicks would be off fluffing some fat Jew for the rent.

The Honest Trailer for Les Miserables was neat and cool, the pay off moments are when your about to know who stars in the film.
"...the Death of Russell Crowe acting abilities!".
That was a real kick.
As for this, Angelina Jolie is a very misused actress, but yeah, this lately fantasy based on brothers grimm material are very forgetable.
But, hey, man, you can´t ask too much. I mean, you can ask people to bring images like that of the "Eye being cut by a blade" on the Buñuel/Dali´s 1928 silent, surreal, black & white short film Un Chien Andalou.
Here is the short film by the way, enjoy if you like:

Hopefully, this will be the last nail in the 'dark-edgy fairy-tale reboot' genre which has produced nothing but slick shiny trash featuring beautiful older actresses as evil-witch bitches.

Reminds me of Ridley Scott's Legend. Maybe it's Angelina's horniness.

hey alleyg21 that is a cool display pic you got there, I liked Bronson a lot!
I must admit that Only God Forgives was a bit of a let down from Refn, but well he might adapt Jodorowsky & Moebiu´s The Incal into a Sci-Fi movie.
