Trailer Review - Maleficent

Teaser Trailer
Watch It Here

Person of Interest: Angelina Jolie is Maleficent and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora.

Scene Pop: Jolie's forest reveal.

Briggs Breakdown: Just some magic gardening skills by the titled character.

Effective?: Meh.

Check it Out?: Hold your horses. Judging by the early footage, it looks like the movie will be nothing more than a live-action remake of Disney's Sleeping Beauty. Why bother spending money for a ticket to this when I can just pop in the DVD at home? Lately, fantasy flicks has been hurting at the box office, besides the name-value of The Hobbit. Snow White and the Huntsman did alright but not enough, as talks of a trilogy have completely gone cold. And, of course, there was the disaster that was Jack the Giant Slayer. This movie is probably going to be exactly like Disney's recent fantasy Oz: The Great and Powerful: a 3D diversion for the family that will then be quickly forgotten about.
