Angelina Jolie Bewitches in First 'Maleficent' Poster
The film, co-starring Elle Fanning and Sharlto Copley, tells the story of the "Sleeping Beauty" villain and hits theaters on May 30, 2014.
Disney has released the first poster for its Angelina Jolie starrer Maleficent.
In the artwork, Jolie's Sleeping Beauty villain is shown peering out from behind a dramatic black cape that covers part of her face. She also sports an elaborate black headpiece. Jolie's pale skin, red lips and intense green and brown eyes starkly contrast her black wardrobe and the poster's black backdrop.
The film reveals the events that hardened Maleficent's heart, focusing on her early life, in which she rises to be her forest kingdom's fiercest protector before she suffers a ruthless betrayal. Intent on revenge, she places a curse upon newborn infant Aurora.
The film co-stars Elle Fanning (Aurora), Sharlto Copley and Juno Temple. It's directed by Robert Stromberg and written by Linda Woolverton. Joe Roth is producing with Jolie, Don Hahn, Matt Smith, Palak Patel and Sarah Bradshaw executive producing. Maleficent will be released in 3D on May 30, 2014.
The first trailer for the film will be released Wednesday at 9 a.m. ET.
