Angelina Jolie looks positively evil in the first image from Maleficent
The fairy tale theme continues in Hollywood, but this next film has a bit of a twist that will probably help the success rate. Today we’re getting a first look at Angelina Jolie as the title character in the upcoming film MALEFICENT. The image is dark and you definitely have to look at it for a few minutes to take in everything, but if this is a taste of what’s to come then I’m completely on board.
MALEFICENT will follow the wicked sorceress (played by a very well cast Angelina Jolie) who takes her vengeance out on poor Sleeping Beauty (Elle Fanning). MALEFICENT was originally going to be helmed by Tim Burton, but that has been scrapped and the movie is now being directed by Robert Stromberg, a former production designer. No doubt MALEFICENT will be beautiful to watch since a director with a background like that will give us some stunning visuals for sure. Of course, the film is being backed by Disney and will hit theaters in 3D on March 14th, 2014. Alongside Angelina Jolie, MALEFICENT also stars: Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville and Miranda Richardson. (Playlist)
