The pretty and fragile victim trope continues to dominate the American box office (Maleficent, Frozen) this time with Cinderella. The Disney movie brought in $23 Million on Friday and is expected to complete the weekend with $70 million. Cinderella's budget was $95 million, so looks like the execs about to get theirs…
This was a weird year for movies. The box office was weak, but also, most films didn't deserve love or hate. They were just... okay. But the genre movies that did stand out were either brilliant experiments, or horrible misfires. Here are the 10 best and 10 worst science fiction and fantasy movies of 2014.
Lana Del Rey's track from Maleficent has a brand new remix and an eerie video to go along with it.
I have a video for everyone out there who watched Maleficent and quietly spent hundreds of dollars in contour makeup products to capture the perfect high cheekbone look, only to realize the end result is less "Evil Disney Queen" and more "Real Housewives of Fort Wayne."
Guess what? Turns out if you essentially ignore half the population, you're leaving money on the table. Apparently this is, like, an AP Calculus-level concept in Hollywood.
As Maleficent continues to rake in cash at the box office, Angelina Jolie is at the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence. And during an interview with BBC Radio's Women's Hour, she addressed that scene in the dark Disney flick.
It's official! One of the next monster villainesses slated for a Maleficent-style makeover is Medusa, the snake-haired Gorgon of Greek myth—most famous for being raped by Poseidon, beheaded by Perseus, and then giving birth to a flying horse. Sounds like an animated comedy to me!
50 Cent was on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night promoting his new album, "Animal Ambition." No doubt he wants Maleficent's box office success to rub off on him. "Get witch and die trying" indeed.
This weekend Maleficent made a boatload of cash, and that bums me out — because this wasn't the Maleficent I wanted. And it certainly wasn't the Maleficent we all deserved. Here's why I'm pissed at what Disney did to the biggest and baddest villain around. Warning, spoilers.
Disney's dark, villain-centric flick Maleficent — a re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty tale — raked in $70 million from North American box offices this weekend — and another $100.6 million overseas. This was, as The Hollywood Reporter puts it, "thanks in large part to girls and women."
I fucking love magical shit. I love spells, monsters, castles, wisecracking animal sidekicks, forest glens, robes, curses, small flying women, and the healing power of love. INTO IT. So I went into Maleficent with medium hopes, despite the dismal failure of earlier fairy tale adaptations like Mirror, Mirror and Snow…
Check out the giant ear spike she wore at the premiere of Maleficent yesterday in Hollywood.
I have never in my day seen such a delectable and terrifying treat in my life. The Tattooed Bakers from London have taken the art of cakes to the next level with this amazingly realistic rendition of Angelina Jolie's character from the upcoming Maleficent movie. But these bakers have quite the repertoire of edibles…
Something wicked(ly beautiful) this way comes.
HSN is partnering with Disney to offer a line of merchandise based on their new film, Maleficent.
While she's modeled for brands like St. John and Louis Vuitton, Angelina Jolie has never "designed" a clothing line. Until now: She's teamed up with Stella McCartney for a Maleficent-themed capsule collection. For the children!
Another day, another extended trailer from Disney for Maleficent, which has everyone on the Internet saying "I ain't mad at you, Disney. Keep 'em coming." Especially when we get to see more of the terrifying looking winged Maleficent.
Disney is ramping up publicity for the May 30th release of Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, and here's some breaking news: Like a ferocious bird of prey or a newfangled sanitary pad, Maleficent has wings.
Disney dropped a bigger, better Maleficent trailer during the Grammys, this one featuring an atmospheric (or, if you're feeling less generous, droning) cover of "Once Upon a Dream" by none other than Lana Del Rey. She sounds like a old-timey gramophone abandoned in a forbidden forest. But it works!
Meryl Streep stopped by The Ellen Show yesterday to talk about all the amazing things she's been doing lately (everything Meryl Streep does is amazing, by the way. She probably blinks better than the rest of us). Unfortunately, Ellen missed the opportunity to have Streep teach the audience how to expertly fling coats…
