It certainly helps if the face on that poster is Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie directs it. Roger Deakins shoots it. The Olympics promote it. Universal releases it. At Christmas. ’nuff said.
Um…I think this looks awesome! I had tons of reservations about this, but I feel like this could be bitching!
Hmmm. I thought it was gonna be something a little different…but not sure what exactly. Looks interesting. Hope it’s a little more dark than the trailer shows (which is I guess dark for a Disney movie)
Angelina Jolie : Maleficent :: Charlize Theron : Snow White and the Huntsman.
In other words, I think this will be fun and Angelina will be great, but the film itself will not be very good.
Could be good if they have a FUN script. Everything in trailer looks generic as fuck.
You could tell in the trailers already Charlize was hitting it out of the park, hell, I even though the movie was going to be Good/Fun. Only one of those came through.
And, and Hunger Games 2 star Sam Claflin was fine.
The effects look GREAT-AND-POWERFULy so my is hope this isn’t a “serious” movie! or “dark”
Theron destroyed the fuck out of SWatH. The only thing that kept me in my seat.
Wish it looked less digital and more physical. I’d love it to have had more actual sets, and thus a more tangible aesthetic.
The two credited production designers on this are both VFX artists, and both worked solely in post-production, meaning that we’re likely looking at an entirely green-screen film. Barely a real, physical prop in sight.
Elle Fanning’s accent is ace. Poshest voice since Harriet Walter.
I’m so excited I’m going to keel over! Sleeping beauty is my favorite disney movie:)
As usual when it comes to revivals of fantasy classics (Snow White, Oz, Jack and the Beanstalk, Hansel & Gretel…), I was really excited reading about the project but now that I see the trailer my hopes are dashed, this looks very much like the usual blockbuster crap Hollywood churns out year in and year out: sound effects straight out of every trailer made since Transformers, trees coming out of the ground… yawn! Lots of hoopla, very little soul, sigh.
This looks surprisingly great! Angelina is perfection. Already looks more promising than SW&TH. Agreed that Charlize was the best part of that. Btw, did anyone else think it was laughable that Kristen Stewart was supposed to be more beautiful than Charlize Theron? In what universe could this even be possible???
My flash player crashed so I could not watch the trailer, but after reading the comments I’m hyped for this Oz film featuring Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart in a digital SWatH-iverse.
Christophe, you forgot to add “Red Riding Hood”.
And Craig: Yes, that is (and will always be) one of the craziest and most unbelievable plot points of ANY movie: That Kristen Stewart is more beautiful than Charlize Theron. They didn’t even TRY to make her prettier (a lost cost, I know) – it’s probably the film she has been most un-beautiful in ever. I actually laughed out loud when the mirror tried to convince us that Stewart is more beautiful. Especially since Theron was so drop dead gorgeous in the film (as usual).
Which reminds me of another recent case of discredibility: Has anyone seen the trailer for “The Motel Life” – or seen the actual film? How in the WORLD are we to believe that Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff are siblings around the same age? Wasn’t Dorff playing a teenager before Hirsch was even born?
*cost = cause
“or seen the actual film?”
Yeah. It’s a good film. The method of getting the audience to buy into brotherhood: Dorff and Hirsch produce a sensitively observed fraternal chemistry. It’s rad.
Yeh The Motel Life actually isn’t bad. And Stephen Dorff and Emile Hirsch do convince as brothers – Watermelons’ comment is spot on.
Boy CGI sure sucks. Is this a movie or PS3?
I always loved Maleficent. She’s the Disney character I wanted to be when I grew up. *sigh*
I’m not the biggest Angelina fan but she’s not the problem here. That looked pretty silly. Like she’s just growing gigantic weeds for no reason. That didn’t look like scary thorns from in the original movie. And they didn’t need to make her eyes freaky. Looks like they’re gonna dumb it down for the little kids. That’s what happened with the TV show Once Upon a Time. Little kids aren’t dumb though. So don’t think crap effects and running through the woods is enough. Make a proper movie/show.
Charlize was amazeballs in SWatH.
“Little kids aren’t dumb though.”
Antoinette, what world do you live in?
