  1. Yes! Honestly, as much as people complained about the first Maleficent's lack of faithfulness to the 1959 film (which may have inadvertently led to the lack of creativity in remakes like The Lion King), I think this is how all of the live action "remakes" should be. The original classics exist and have already stood the test of time, why bother going through the motions making shot-for-shot remakes that will ultimately be forgotten? If Disney had taken the characters from Beauty and the Beast, gave it a similar aesthetic to the original, but taken a different approach to the story (and I don't mean adding in pointless "fixes" from the original plot) it still would have made bank. People are already complaining about Mulan not including any of the songs and eliminating Mushu, but would we really want to see those songs auto-tuned to hell or a less funny expressionless Mushu? Because there is a 99% chance that's what we'd get if they were included. At least this seems like a slightly different take on the story.
  2. You cannot stop what is inevitable. Just sit back and relax as Angelina, Ed Skrein, and Elle Fanning take on a new magical bad guy played by...Alan Cumming?
  3. Logic is telling me that it will retain the top spot, as it will have bigger weekend boosts than Joker. The audience for this is likely to wait until the weekend because of school.
  4. I had no issues with the effects. I thought they were actually an improvement on the first film’s. Even more impressive given that they lost 7 months of post production with the release date change.
  5. Saw it last night, found it very enjoyable. Some excellent world building and costumes. It's nice to see one of these live action remakes take big swings, even if it's not perfect. A nice change of pace from the truly uninspired Lion King remake. Some really dark moments and something in the ending I didn't expect that might appease some people disappointed with the ending of the first film.
  6. It's kind of crazy how much more hyped I'd be for this if the only difference being it was live action. Literally, same cast and everything.
  7. I feel like this is going to do surprising numbers, much in the way the first one did. I've been seeing a lot of advertising for it on social media. Angelina and Michelle are out there PROMOTING this.
  8. <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Check out this international poster for <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Maleficent?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Maleficent</a>: Mistress of Evil.

  9. Since original forecast was 30, with this new projeciton, could this go on to match the original's nearly 70?
  10. Does this mean it's getting a pass because the Disney brand is seen as more wholesome or something?
  11. New special look (and new plot point reveal regarding Aurora and Phillip).
  12. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Knives Out Judy Last Christmas Frozen II A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Little Women Onward Cats
  13. New poster revealing what I assume is Ed Skrein’s character.
  14. 1. Cruella DeVil as played by Glenn Close 2. Lady Tremaine as played by Cate Blanchett 3. Maleficent as played by Angelina Jolie * a bit of space* 4. The Red Queen as played by Helena Bonham Carter 5. Gaston as played by Luke Evans 6. Shere Khan as played by Idris Elba *a gulf of space* 7. Jafar as played by Marwan Kenzari At least Kenzari’s face was nice to look at. I’m guessing Scar will end up somewhere in the middle.
  15. I feel like Jolie herself as Maleficent left a much bigger cultural impact than anything from Alice in Wonderland. A google image search of "Alice in Wonderland" brings various images of the story, some of the Burton film sprinkled throughout. A google image search of "Maleficent"? Almost exclusively Jolie.
  16. This is the only Disney release (not including Fox acquisitions) this year to not have a trailer. I figured they wanted to wait a little bit after the Episode IX trailer, so hopefully soon? My bones are turning to dust waiting for this.
  17. My thoughts exactly. Seems we are well overdue for one. Any chance it premieres on GMA this week?
