'Maleficent' Gets a Trailer Parody from 50 Cent with 'Malefiftycent'
We've seen plenty of movie trailer hilarity come from Jimmy Kimmel with his star-studded trailer for Movie: The Movie and also the sequel Movie: The Movie 2V. But now his parody target has narrowed with a spoof of Disney's latest box office success Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie. But this version has a different spin on the tale with rapper and occasional bad actor 50 Cent in the lead. And with that addition, the film has appropriately changed the title to Malefiftycent and it comes with an awesome tagline. It's a long way to go for just a simple title joke, but 50 Cent clearly had fun with this quick parody. Watch below!
Here's the parody trailer for Maleficent, featuring 50 Cent as Malefiftycent, from Jimmy Kimmel:
Robert Stromberg (a production designer on Alice in Wonderland and Avatar) is making his directorial debut with Maleficent from a script written by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast). Angelina Jolie plays the title villain from the classic Disney film Sleeping Beauty in this live-action spin that also stars Sharlto Copley (District 9), Elle Fanning (Super 8), Sam Riley (On the Road), Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Juno Temple (Atonement) and more. Disney sent Maleficent to theaters everywhere in 3D on May 30th, 2014 this summer. Visit the film's official website. Excited?
