Go Inside the ‘Maleficent’ Legacy

13 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Maleficent. Man, I don’t know how to feel about this. Sleeping Beauty has a very specific place in Disney animation history, it’s nuanced as all Disney films were becoming, but also designed in an angular fashion that makes the whole think look like a medieval tapestry come to life.

It was one of my favorite Disney films growing up and one of the first I bought on DVD when I made the transition to discs from VHS way back when. How do I feel about Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning stepping into the Maleficent and Aurora roles? Fine. I should feel fine about it. But I’m not sure what we’re gaining with having Maleficent be some sort of gaia angel with a vine dragon. Something about that feels off. Something about seeing Angelina Jolie smile in those cheekbones feel off.

But – they’re trying to split a hair here, »

Maleficent Featurette Teases A Reinvention, Not A Retelling Of Sleeping Beauty

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Rather than delivering a live-action remake of Sleeping Beauty, Disney has taken more of a Wicked approach with Maleficent in focusing its attention on the villain of the story. As screenwriter Linda Woolverton describes the concept in the new featurette, Maleficent is "a reinvention, not just a retelling of the same story." It's a risk, no doubt, as it does involve tinkering with a beloved classic. But from everything we've seen, including some of the thrilling footage revealed in this featurette, that risk may very well pay off. In the latest promotional video, stars Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning, writer Linda Woolverton and director Robert Stromberg discuss revising the classic story from a new angle. Those familiar with Sleeping Beauty might agree that Maleficent is a pretty underdeveloped villain. In the animated film, she shows up at Aurora's christening, interrupting the fairies as they're bestowing their gifts on the baby. »

'Maleficent': Angelina Jolie Explores The Disney Villain's 'Legacy'

21 hours ago | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

Everyone knows the story of Sleeping Beauty — but what happened before her story was told? That's the key question at the heart of "Maleficent," the new Disney movie directed by Richard Stromberg and starring Angelina Jolie as the horned, demon-eyed sorceress. In "Maleficent," the legendary villain gets a new lease on life, through a retelling of the classic fairy tale that shows a softer, more sympathetic side of Sleeping Beauty's "nemesis."

Meme: The Timing of the Bryan Singer Lawsuit, Pat Robertson Says You Can’t Avoid Gays, Ian Somerhalder Is “The Anomaly”

22 hours ago | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Jersey Boys sings tough, James Franco’s mature reaction to a bad review, the fight for credit in the marriage equality movement

One major question that kept recurring yesterday in the news about the lawsuit against Bryan Singer was the timing. It turns out the suit was filed now in Hawaii because the state has temporarily suspended the statute of limitations on sex offenses, giving a window.

The Gill Action Group was planning a conference of major donors at the Beverly Hills Hotel May 1-5, but as the iconic hotel is owned by the Sultan of Brunei, who just announced death by stoning for homosexuality, the conference is being moved, and the group is demanding all deposits back. The hotel is of course a favorite celebrity haunt, and I wonder if more things like this will happen.

Going it alone: Tom Hardy's Locke and 8 more incredible solo performances

18 April 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Tom Hardy delivers a mesmerising solo performance in this week's Locke, holding attention for the duration as the only actor on screen. Steven Knight's car-bound thriller is the latest in a long line of films that have zeroed in on one character and offered the lead an opportunity to flex their acting chops.

With Locke in cinemas now, Digital Spy takes a look at 8 great performances from stars going it alone.

Robert Redford (All Is Lost)

The Hollywood veteran barely utters a word in Jc Chandor's nautical survival drama, but his performance as a man battling nature and his sinking yacht is still devastatingly effective. The ending leaves a note of ambiguity, but up until that point this has been a clear-eyed drama about doing what needs to be done when things go bad.

TV Review: SundanceTV's Charming Season Premiere of 'The Writers' Room' Shares Secrets of 'Scandal'

17 April 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jim Rash can do no wrong. From his impeccable five-year performance as the Dean on "Community" to his Angelina Jolie-inspired, perfectly-timed pose at the 2013 Academy Awards, to an astute parody of "True Detective" with buddy Joel McHale, the Oscar-winning screenwriter is charming to the nth degree on and off camera. As the host of SundanceTV's "The Writers' Room," he effortlessly pushes for insights from some of the most in-demand writers out there -- and often gets them. While the mood is light during the Q&A session, the entertainment value is high thanks to well-chosen guests, intuitive features, and, of course, its amiable host.  The second season kicks off Friday, April 18th with the creator, lead actress, and writers of ABC's hit late night soap opera, "Scandal" (a well-timed episode considering the show's season finale airs Thursday night). Creator Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, and writers Mark Wilding, Jenna Bans, »
