Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie join screenwriter Linda Woolverton and director Robert Stromberg to discuss the re-imagining of “Sleeping Beauty” in a new featurette for “Maleficent.” The film stars Jolie and Fanning as Maleficent and Princess Aurora, respectively, and is set to reveal the untold story of the classic 1959 animated fairy tale but from the perspective of Maleficent rather than Sleeping Beauty. Maleficent will be introduced as a young pure-hearted teenager (played by Ella Purnell) who lives in a peaceful forest kingdom. But when she is ruthlessly betrayed, sheRead More
Brenton Thwaites 10
Brenton Thwaites is taken under the wings of Jeff Bridges to be his successor as seen in the first featurette for Phillip Noyce‘s adaptation of Lois Lowry’s Newbery award-winning book “The Giver.” Thwaites stars as a teenage boy named Jonas who lives in a utopian society that is without war, pain, individuality or self-control. Jonas is completely oblivious to the pleasures and suffering of the real world. But that all changes when he alone is chosen to be guided by The Giver (Bridges), a man who bears the burden ofRead More
Karen Gillan
Karen Gillan‘s Kaylie tries to distinguish between what exactly is real or just a trick as seen in the newly-relased footage for Mike Flanagan‘s upcoming horror flick “Oculus.” The film, which will be the first released project of Gillan’s since graduating from “Doctor Who” last year, follows the Russell siblings – Kaylie (Gillan) and Tim (Brenton Thwaites) – whose lives are forever traumatized after the murders of their parents during their childhood. Tim was convicted of the crimes and ended up spending ten years in protective custody. Now in theirRead More
Maleficent Prince
If you love dragons, fairies and all things magical, then you’ll definitely want to check out the latest trailer for Disney’s “Maleficent” – the Robert Stromberg-directed live-action retelling of the 1959 animated classic “Sleeping Beauty.” Starring Angelina Jolie, Elle Fanning and Brenton Thwaites, “Maleficent” takes the classic fairy tale most of us grew up with and completely turns it upside down. Rather than the story being about Sleeping Beauty (Fanning), the film is getting the “Wicked” treatment by having the spotlight placed on the villainous fairy (Jolie) that undoubtedly hauntedRead More

One of the upcoming films of this genre that we are most anticipating is Phillip Noyce‘s “The Giver” – and today we’ve been treated with the film’s debut trailer! Based on Lois Lowry’s 1994 Newbery award-winning book, “The Giver” follows a young boy named Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) who lives in a utopian society that is withoutRead More
Although “From the producers of “Paranormal Activity” and “Sinister” is never usually a good sign for a modern day horror movie, “Oculus” has been getting rave reviews since it hit festivals last year. This seems to be more than a modern day horror movie which consists of “quiet, quiet, quiet, BANG.” The new trailer just released seems to reinforce this point as well. This film also boasts quite the cast for a horror movie. Karen Gillan, the star of “Doctor Who” and the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” is obviouslyRead More
