I’m not sure when it happened, but people are apparently loving villains now for some reason.
I mean, I love villains too, but the widespread trend of them is a bit baffling. Perhaps it started with the Joker in The Dark Knight or with Loki in Thor, or maybe even earlier than that. No matter, it appears that Disney is in love with one now too, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, as she has just been given her own movie starring Angelina Jolie. The first trailer for which has just been released.
I’m not too sure how the story of this is going to come together, but visually this thing looks pretty good. It looks more appealing to the eyes than Alice in Wonderland was, at the very least. I’m not one hundred percent on board with this (I’m just not sold on Jolie’s performance or the choice for her in this part), but I’d be willing to give it the benefit of the doubt when it comes out on May 30, 2014.
Check out the trailer below:
