The one thing you’d never think Angelina Jolie would need is more cheekbones, but she’s got some in Maleficent. You can see just how high they are in the new poster, which has just been released. It’s a great image, although we’re still yet to see whether there are actual horns under the headdress or if it’s just the bad fairy’s unique fashion statement.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘From Disney comes “Maleficent”—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.” A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal—an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom—and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.’
It’s due in cinemas this May.
