50 Cent Debuts as ‘Malefiftycent’: “Get Witch or Die Trying”

ABC

If there was one thing last week's box office winner, Disney's revisionist tale 'Maleficent,' was missing, it was rap stars. There's not a single rapper in the entire film, it's all just Elle Fanning and Angelina Jolie and wood nymphs and spinning needles and such. No Ice Cube. No Ice-T. No Eminem. And this injustice will not stand -- because 50 Cent is out to correct it with his new feature film, 'Malefiftycent.'

maleficent

With a budget of upwards of a reported $180 million, it may have seemed like a surprise choice to tap Robert Stromberg to direct Disney's tent-pole summer offering, 'Maleficent,' starring Angelina Jolie as the title character made famous as the villain in 'Sleeping Beauty.' John Lee Hancock had been brought onto the project for reshoots, a notion that today Stromberg bristles at hearing -- claiming that Hancock was only there to help make cuts to the first act and any reshoots were still shot by Stromberg. Ahead, Stromberg addresses the reshoot stories in depth.

Maleficent Clip and Featurette
Walt Disney

In the latest clip and featurette for 'Maleficent,' Angelina Jolie suggests the film is faithful to the original story, and that her character loves being evil. We always figured that this film was a more modern take that cast Maleficent as the possible hero of the story, though this clip doesn't answer that question entirely.

If nothing else, 'Maleficent' looks like a grand showcase for Angelina Jolie's ability to vamp it up on screen. The new trailer for Disney's revisionist take on 'Sleeping Beauty' is as gorgeous and mysterious as the rest, giving Jolie plenty of time to shine and ham it up as the title anti-hero.

Maleficent Trailer Legacy
Disney

Disney's latest 'Maleficent' trailer sure brings back fond memories of watching the animated rendition of 'Sleeping Beauty' as a kid (or watching them with your kids), but this is not that story.
