Trailer Watch: Maleficent

The new trailer for Maleficent is a shadowy affair, teasing you with some very recognizable silhouettes until giving you the money shot of Angelina Jolie’s pale and perfect face. Her presence is already formidable, the iconic black horns and the satanic choir that seems to follow her every move make her very intimidating. Apart from the shot at 36 seconds where, correct me if I’m wrong, it looks as if she’s as tall as Dudley Moore. Hard to take her seriously after that. Apart from that it looks far too in love with its own CGI. I’m getting really troubled feelings this might be another Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Opens on the 30th of May.
