'Maleficent' Gets an IMAX Poster and Five Weak Character Posters

May 5, 2014


There may not be a Pixar movie coming this summer, but Disney is still hoping to hit strong with their own live-action fairytale this summer to accompany this year's comic book box office giants. Maleficent stars Angelina Jolie as the title villain best known from the classic Sleeping Beauty. But this new live-action revisionist take on the sorceress' tale looks at things from her perspective, showing that she may be evil for a very good reason. We're hoping this packs a little more punch than Snow White and the Huntsman, but we're not completely sold yet. At the very least, Jolie seems to be great and we have a batch of new posters.

Here's the new IMAX poster for the Maleficent featuring Angelina Jolie's long neck (larger here):


And here's a small batch of fairly lame character posters that popped up on IMP Awards:






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 sends Maleficent to theaters everywhere in 3D on May 30th, 2014 this summer. Visit the film's official website. Excited?

    The Pixies look hard as fuck.

    I just have a feeling this movie will suck so hard. Poor script and confusing narrative, weak mediocre performances, poor direction and terrible 3D. I can just smell this disaster coming, remember what I said until the first review hits. I am never wrong.
    I was very excited. Now, not so much. Not because of these posters, just the ads are turning me off.

      They really are turning up the marketing/advertising to 11 aren't they?

    I'm not sure why they decided to pull the contrast from the images on these posters. They didn't do it on the Angelina ones. The rest seem very muted. A story like this should be exciting and visceral. By dropping out the contrast they have accomplished the opposite effect. Bland, and boring.

    I'm excited for Elle Fanning to be in this production. I think she is a wonderful actress with a very bright future!

    The pixies poster is horrid.
