Teaser for ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ Arrives!

Exciting news for Disney fans! The trailer of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil has arrived and it looks to be a darker tale than most Disney productions. Fan favorite Maleficent, the mistress of all evil, returns in this sequel to the 2014 version. The first film told Maleficent’s origin story, offering a different perspective on the classic Sleeping Beauty. The upcoming sequel will pick up a few years after the original, and will see the dark sorceress join with Princess Aurora to protect the kingdom from greater threat. The film will explore the relationship between Maleficent and Aurora, while crafting a beautifully realized fantasy world.

The aesthetics for the film look on point, with Maleficent herself brilliantly portrayed by Angelina Jolie once more.  Jolie perfect embodies the role, with her pale skin, curved horns, wreathed in green flames and  imposing black wings topping off the look. Not to mention her smooth, yet almost mischievous, voice. Joining Jolie in the film will be Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith, Harris Dickinson as Prince Philip, and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora.

The teaser doesn’t show much but it lets the viewers know this will be a darker twist on the source material, showcasing the moody interior of the towering castle in the kingdom, Maleficent attacking enemies to protect Aurora, and a glimpse of dark creatures flying down from the skies, as well as Maleficent spread her wings, looking like she’s ready for total war.

Are you excited? We sure are! Get ready to see the mistress of evil this October, as Maleficent: Mistress of Evil arrives October 8th.

Neil Gaiman Wants You to Watch New ‘Good Omens’ Trailer

Well, this was a pleasant surprise! In a tweet this morning, Neil Gaiman posted a link to the latest trailer for the upcoming adaptation of one of his most famous novels: Good Omens, co-written with the late, great novelist Terry Pratchett. Gaiman took to Twitter to ask fans: ‘So you’ve all seen this now, yes?’

Yes, Neil, yes we have, and we couldn’t be more excited.

The novel was the result of a creative collaboration between the brilliant Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, a witty adventure that follows the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley as they both attempt to sabotage the coming of the proverbial end times, having grown used to living comfortably in England. A madcap comedy, the book features brilliant satire of common religious fixtures such as the biblical book of Revelationsthe Four Horsepeople of the Apocalypse, Satanic nuns, and the unlikely pairing between the two protagonists. The Amazon Prime series looks to be embracing all this fun.

Starring David Tennant as Crowley and Michael Sheen as Aziraphale, the trailer seems to embrace the full imaginative and satirical bent of the novel. Just some of the things audiences get to see include krakens, aliens, demonic motorbikers, as well as glimpses of Jon Hamm and Nick Offerman. But the pairing of Crowley and Aziraphale looks to be just perfect, with Tennant and Sheen embodying their roles spectacularly. And it’s all set to a soundtrack by Queen for the icing on the cake.

Good Omens will be let loose on Amazon Prime on May 31st. It’s going to be one hell of a ride.
