Angelina Jolie brings red lips, horn realness in a new ‘Maleficent’ poster: amazing?


WOW. This is the best poster Disney has released so far for Maleficent. I understand that Disney didn’t want to Release the Full-Jolie until they got closer to a release date for the film, but I’ve been disappointed with the lack of promotional images and such from the film. Hopefully, more stuff will be coming out soon. Because Maleficent finally has a hard release date – I thought it wasn’t going to come out until June or July, but the release date is now May 30th. Awesome!

LaineyGossip points out that with a late May release date, there’s a real possibility that Angelina Jolie could end up doing a huge Cannes premiere. Jolie has promoted big-market, non-competition films in Cannes before, most recently when she was promoting Kung Fu Panda 2. So… I really hope this happens. I really hope we get some Angelina in Cannes. I miss her at Cannes. The fashion isn’t always the best, but Angelina is always so ridiculously beautiful in Cannes.

Anyway, this poster doesn’t tell us anything new, but it is an amazing image. I love Angelina bringing the HORN REALNESS. You know a woman is beautiful when she can make horns work. The cheekbone prosthetics are obviously an homage to Lady Gaga and/or Madonna, only Angelina works them better. And the red lips! Damn.

Oh, and Maleficent has a Twitter now. The Twitter launched its first tweet with this poster and the comment, “Well, well.”

    She. Is. AMAZING!!!!!

    • Paige says:

      I don’t think there are cheek prosthetics. Looks like a little photoshop on the poster and all Jolie in the film…

  2. cinnamonboo says:

    She gives FACE better than anyone ever. Beaut.

  3. Narak says:

    Can’t wait! Love the horns!!

  4. Sweetlyn says:

    Stunning! This woman has no bad angles. Well well I can’t wait :) ;)

  5. Sullivan says:

    This movie looks deliciously creepy.

  6. Jaderu says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited for a Disney release!

  7. lower-case deb says:

    still not sold on the duct-tapy shine on the materials. but, that FACE!! that STARE!

    also, in this picture, she seems to have a different textured headdress?
    (more scaley here)

    it’ll be interesting to see the different shades/style of horn wrappings…

    speaking of scales… in one of the trailers we see Maleficent conjuring up a dragon from the thorns… but do we know if she herself will be transforming into one? it’ll be so amazing!

    • V4Real says:

      Are the horns a removeable head dress or do they supposed to be expanded from her head?

      Now it makes sense that EW had her on the cover being that the release date is May, instead of June or July.

      • Andrea1 says:

        I think the headpiece is meant to cover her horns whenever she doesn’t want the horns to be visible. So she covers her hair and horns with the headpiece.

  8. lithe says:

    Absolutely stunning! :)

  9. Andrea1 says:

    Breathtaking and beautiful. May 30th can’t come soon enough.

  10. some bitch says:

    Amazing photoshop.

    • cinnamonboo says:

      Yeah keep pretending you didn’t just see that Jolie face on the red carpet last week lady. Lol

      But do tell, where are all of these ‘candid’ un-retouched, unshopped, and unstylized movie posters you’re inferring everyone in showbiz (but Angelina) puts out? :-/

      • some bitch says:

        She didn’t look like that on the red carpet AT ALL.

      • FLORC says:

        Say and think what you like. Truth is she’s a stunningly gorgeous woman. You may have a personal grudge, but to think she isn’t beautiful is letting that grudge overtake your senses.

        There are many, many candid shts of her over the years not photoshopped or editted in any way taken by random people and fans. Even the photos touched up enough to try and make her look ugly are a sad attempt at such.

        Bottom Line… She’s Gorgeous.
        And for the record i’m an Aniston fan too!

      • The only thing about her face that’s photoshopped on that poster are the cheekbones (and those just might be really good prosthetics, and makeup), how white her skin is, and her eyes (color)….

  11. Shelby says:

    I’m so excited for this!

  12. Tiffany says:

    That cast looks amazaballs. Sharlto Copley I will watch in anything. He is the sole reason I sat through The A Team.

    • lower-case deb says:

      i look forward to Peter Capaldi, will he bend time? will he be sweary?
      (perhaps not too sweary since this is Disney).

  13. Andrea1 says:

    Rooting for this movie to slay some box office record!

  14. Luca26 says:

    She looks awesome! But I can’t get impressed about the movie when everything besides Angie looks meh.

    I’m totally going to see it though

  15. themummy says:

    I don’t get the hype. The Maleficent costume looks really cheap and cheesy. Angelina just looks like normal Angelina plus cheek prosthetics (which, by the way, I think look cheap and cheesy, too). I’m a fan of Angelina, so this isn’t hate. I just don’t get the Maleficent love at all. The movie looks absolutely awful.

    And also, I just don’t see anything scary about the way she’s doing Maleficent.

    • Cecilia says:

      she does seem more seductive than scary.

    • V4Real says:

      Well I have my doubts as well as I do with a lot of movies but I will hold my judgement until I see the film. It might be one of the movies that doesn’t present well in previews but turns out to be amazing. Plus, they don’t want to reveal too much of the plot. I have never been one of those fairytale story loving children, I was a tomboy. I have a son who definetely wouldn’t want to watch anything like this but I’m a bit intrigued to see how Angie’s take on the character turns out. I will be in the theater as soon as this movie is released.

    • cinnamonboo says:

      Your comments will make a lot more sense once you actually see the film and know what you’re talking about.

      I’ve only seen 2 trailers – certainly not enough to determine major plot points and sequence or performance.

      Hold your horses until you see it hon…you’ll be able to pretend objectivity when you inevitably attack the film later.


    • Lou says:

      Agree. I love love love Angelina and Sleeping Beauty, but the trailers haven’t grabbed me. These Disney fairytale remakes don’t really float my boat. To be honest, it looks like a great performance from Ange in a poor film.

      But heck, that’s just my opinion based on the trailer. If I’m wrong, that’s cool. I still love Ange either way, I think she’s the whole package.

  16. Maya says:

    Gorgeous woman who can do no wrong in my eyes.

    I have a feeling she will rule the boxoffice with this one and since she is getting 10 percent of the profits plus $25m – she will be the highest earning actress ever.

    PS: she will difinitely turn into a dragon – they are keeping it a surprise as to how she will look. Same thing with Smaug – no one knew how he would look like until the actual movie.

  17. TX says:

    Love it! Love everything about it. I’ve officially turned the corner into Brangaloonie-Town.

    • FLORC says:

      Welcome TX
      Here is your crazy straw for your Brangelina water bottle, your black, loose fitting outfit with oversized tote, your membership card to get you into the latest Brangienews meetings, and your tinfoil hat to keep Chelsea Handler from invading your thoughts with racial slurs and hateful comments on adopting. Should you see her outside the gates just ignore her while sipping the latest Brangelina wine.

      And feel free to decorate your tinfoil hat.

  18. Chinoiserie says:

    Would anyone here be excited for this movie if Angelina was not in it? Do you think that Angelina makes a bad film worth watching or do you think the fact that Angelina is doing this is a sign of quality? The film looks rather cheesy and unoriginal in my opinion, and if it succeeds at the box office there will be much more of these “form villains perspective” films that I have no interest in seeing. But if you think it really looks good there is nothing wrong with that! And it can be good and I am wrong.

      excuse me but you already don’t like such kind of movies and already hate what you saw so far. why u care what we think?

      Anyway for me i like fairy tales and i love sleeping beauty so much, Childhood Memories?
      I did not see swath because i don’t like Kristen Stewart or Chris Acting.. but i will go see this because i like maleficent and Angelina Julie also the trailer looks awesome.

  19. toto says:

    I was fascinated by maleficent costumes more than aurora when i was kid.
    She was so elegant and regal, its weird that most people remember maleficent in more details than aurora but maybe because it was rich personality and well scripted and executed.

  20. Miffy says:

    She looks great but I’m not into this poster. If the lighting was a smidge cruder this could be some Terry Richardson tripe.

    I’m losing my enthusiasm for this film. I hope it’s good but I’m apprehensive. The trailers were too reminiscent of the Alice In Wonderland failure and from what Jolie herself has said they’ve taken the most badass and memorable Disney villain and made her sympathetic and soft. I really hope I’m wrong. I really do.

  21. Camille (The Original) says:

    LOVE it!

    Can’t wait to see this movie. Hopefully it comes out in May down here as well, it will be a lovely late birthday pressie for me hehe.

  22. Ice Queen says:

    Not scary at all but beautiful and artistic.

  23. Cali2002 says:

    Stunning! And for those who don’t think it’s very scary, well it is Disney so they won’t go too far, I wish this was Tim Burton directed though because it would be the perfect balance of scary, cool and funny!
