Angelina Jolie has been out of the loop for a while, hasn't she? Her last release was the good-but-by-no-means-great spy thriller Salt, and since then it's been nothing. Maybe she was tired of the spotlight, maybe no projects had come her way that appealed to her. That drought ends here, though, because we have the trailer for Maleficant, a sort of spin-off/remake of Sleeping Beauty focusing on the memorable villain. Check it out after the jump.
Yeah, I'm getting horrible Snow White & The Huntsman flashbacks too. I'm not sure that I'm even behind Jolie playing a character like Maleficant, she's too recognizable as herself. We don't really get enough of a plot to comment on, though I'll say that Elle Fanning is horrendously miscast as the princess. Does it succeed or fail beyond that? We'll just have to wait until the film's release on May 30th, 2014 to find out.
