First Teaser Trailer For Disney's MALEFICENT Arrives

I haven't given any judgement on MALEFICENT yet. I'm on the fence. Could be a bomb or a huge win - likely the later. But it had better be good for Angelina Jolie who gave up what seems to be an Oscar nod for turning down the lead in GRAVITY. Now THAT's a bad move. The Sandra Bullock role is once in a lifetime if you ask me. But I digress.

I don't find Jolie's character all that intimidating actually. The horns look cool, but just some extended cheekbones and some contact lenses? Sure it's early on in the movie. Likely there are some surprises to that end as the movie progresses and Maleficent turns more, shall we say, evil.

I did like the Pandora like environment in a few scenes. It is certain Disney spared no expense in getting this thing done. At this stage though, I was hoping for more.

Here's the storyline:
From Disney comes MALEFICENT—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.

MALEFICENT opens on May 30, 2014 in 3D and in flat.
