You never know what to expect from Disney’s live-action adaptations of their animated classics. At times, they can be just as wonderful as their animated counterparts. Other times, they are just hollow, lacking any sort of distinguishing features. But for Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil, starring Angelina Jolie, it is the first sequel of its kind for the studio. This means, there are new stories to see and hear, new worlds to explore, new characters to meet, and more reasons to love the antihero fairy whose cold heart was warmed by Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning).
Sure, the first film was merely a CGI-saturated feature that could not match Jolie’s performance, but with the sequel has a much better cast, a fantastic story, and more epic action sequences. Check out the full review below.
Although it wasn’t the most well-received of the Disney live-action adaptations of their animated classics, Maleficent went on to be one of the biggest blockbuster films of 2014. As such, it deserved to get a sequel. Flash-forward five years later, we are getting that with Angelina Jolie returning to reprise the role that she was born to play in Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil. However, the title character’s happiness won’t be continuing, as Aurora (Elle Fanning) has a new fiance, whose family promises to care for her the way that Maleficent never could. But are their intentions true or are they hiding something? And what other surprises are in store for the audience. Check out the trailer and more here below.
Disney has released the first teaser trailer for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, the sequel to the hugely successful Maleficent. Angelina Jolie returns to play the titular scorned winged sorceress who cursed Princess Aurora to be put under eternal sleep that can only be dispelled by a kiss. But unlike the traditional live-action adaptations, the film took a much different approach by having the film take place from Maleficent’s perspective and exploring why she was bitter towards the kingdom and the young princess.
Now she’s back, along with Elle Fanning, who reprises her role as Princess Aurora. Joining them will be Michelle Pfeiffer as a new character created for this film. Check out the new trailer and six new images from the film below.
Daniel Day-Lewis is retiring. We’ve known that for quite some time. The actor has given powerful performances on a consistent basis never, so it is sad to see that all come to an end. One of the most stunning came from a collaboration with Paul Thomas-Anderson in There Will Be Blood, a film for which he earned himself an Academy Award for Best Actor. Though it has been ten years since the two have worked together on a project, it seems fitting that Day-Lewis’ acting career comes to an end with the director’s new film Phantom Thread.
The first trailer for Phantom Thread has been released, and it gives us a small tease of what not only looks like another great film, but a terrific end to an absolutely great career. Check it out here below.
The movie is a live-action retelling of the tale of Sleeping Beauty, focusing more on the story of the infamous villain from Disney’s 1959 animated classic, Maleficent, who is played int the movie by Angelina Jolie.
