Walt Disney Pictures has released a new poster of Angelina Jolie in her new movie Maleficent, and it’s awesome. The look in her eyes is so compelling and chilling. We got the new poster from Entertainment Weekly and we just love it. In the poster Angelina is wearing a horned headdress and a black cape but it’s her eyes that are startling – they draw you in as she looks fiercely at us. I wouldn’t want to be meeting up with her.
Angelina spoke to EW about the movie saying, “It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman. I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities”
Official Movie Synopsis: “MALEFICENT is the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty. A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable 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 movie also stars Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, Sharlto Copley and Juno Temple. Maleficent is set to hit theaters on May 30, 2014. The first trailer for the film is expected to be released tomorrow at 9AM online. What do you think CBLers, are you excited to see the new trailer? Thoughts?
