There are a lot of interesting movies being released over the next few years and one movie that has been heavily spoken about over the past year or so, is the upcoming film Maleficent, which is a different take on the classic Sleeping Beauty tale. Angelina Jolie plays the titular character in the film, while Elle Fanning plays the role of Princess Aurora.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Maleficent, the movie centres on "the events that hardened the villainous Maleficent's heart and drove her to curse young Princess Aurora." From the promotional material that we have had for Maleficent, Angelina Jolie looks perfect as the character and she has now spoken about the growth of evil in the movie.
During a recent interview with the guys over at Entertainment Weekly, Jolie explained, "The exercise wasn’t how can we have fun with a villain? It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?"
As well as starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, the cast for Maleficent also includes the likes of Juno Temple, Hannah New, Sharlto Copley, Brenton Thwaites, Peter Capaldi, Ella Purnell, Miranda Richardson and Sam Riley. Maleficent has been directed by Robert Stromberg and will hit the big screen on May 30 in both the US and the UK. As well as starring in the titular role of the movie, Angelina Jolie also serves as an executive producer on Maleficent.
