Angelina Jolie is Maleficent in Disney’s MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil

Rated PG | Minutes: 118

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.

Midway Movie

Watching this latest trailer for Roland Emmerich‘s Midway, one can’t help but feel that they’ve seen something like this before.

That’s because it bares a striking resemblance to Michael Bay’s Pearl Harbor, using actual history to create a popcorn blockbuster that is full of action, explosions, and heroic music. Lionsgate has released a new trailer for the film, which you can check out below.

Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel
4K Ultra HD | Blu-ray | DVD | Digital |
Director: Robert Rodriguez
Writer: James Cameron, Laeta Kalogridis
Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, and Keean Johnson
Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Rated PG-13 | Minutes: 122
Release Date: July 24, 2019

Ever since James Cameron put all of his attention on the Avatar franchise, Alita: Battle Angel had been sitting on the back burner for as long as I could remember. Luckily, that all changed when he handed directing responsibilities over to Robert Rodriguez, who seemed to have the right sensibilities in order to bring the manga character to the big screen in a way that would honor the source material and their fans.

While the film was met with mixed reviews, most would say that the adaptation captured Alita and the futuristic world around her well. All those textures, the attention to detail, and the motion-capture work all speak to Cameron’s need to bring those characters and said world to audiences, and eliciting a wide-eyed and jaw-dropping reaction. Though the predictable narrative itself couldn’t support Alita: Battle Angel, the titular character’s journey of self-discovery is something worth watching. Check out my review of the film, plus some of the bonus feature that will be available, below.

Angelina Jolie is Maleficent in Disney’s MALEFICENT:  MISTRESS OF EVIL

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.

Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil #3

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.

Disney Maleficent Angelina Jolie

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any news from Maleficent 2, the sequel to the very popular reimagining of Sleeping Beauty. Starring Angelina Jolie, the film pictured the title character as a protagonist who was wronged by a scheming king who took her wings away thereby taking her powers away. She would eventually get them back, and like most fairy tale endings, they all lived happily ever after.

But there was no way that a huge success like that wouldn’t be followed up with a sequel. And that’s what we are getting. The sequel has a brand new title and now will go by Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Not only that, but there is a new release date and a teaser poster. Check them all out below.
