What made Maleficent so damn evil? Well, the latest full-length trailer for Disney’s fantasy spectacle, starring Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie as the titular “Sleeping Beauty” villain, is suggesting it had something to do with the loss of her wings. Which was supposedly “stolen” by King Stefan (Sharlto Copley), and his actions appears to be the reason why Maleficent cursed his daughter, Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning), with a wicked spell that will transpire on the sunset of her 16th birthday — of course, Maleficent will tell her side of the story right before the young curious princess falls into a “sleep-like death!”
“There is evil in this world … hatred and revenge,” Maleficent warns Princess Aurora in the above clip. Little does she know that the wicked fairy was actually referring to herself.
Directed by Robert Stromberg, the award-winning production designer/ VFX artist of “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland,”
Whether in action movies or not, Angelina Jolie still kicks ass!
“Maleficent” will start spreading its wings on May 30th.
Miley Cyrus is reportedly getting all kinds of personal on her next album. Hip-hop producer and recording artist Pharrell Williams says her upcoming work is “powerful” and unexpected.
“Her sound right now is her personality,” Williams said in an interview with MTV. “That’s what we’ve been aiming for in the studio and that’s what’s been coming out and that’s what’s been sounding so interesting. Her voice is a very powerful one — you just have to hear it to know that and to understand it. It’s nowhere near what it is that you think.”
Reports of Cyrus’ collaboration with Williams first surfaced this fall. The N.E.R.D. alum is producing the singer’s upcoming album, giving her a new sound. “A lot of the beats are produced hip-hop beats,” Cyrus said, “but the vocal is very raw and my voice is kind of on top of all the tracks, which is what I wanted.”
Since Cyrus wrapped “Hannah Montana” in 2011, the singer has been distancing herself from the squeaky-clean Disney image. The 20-year-old has been taking more risks with both her music and her style, and is now engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth.
Cyrus’ untitled album is reportedly due out in early 2013.
