The new Disney film tells the classic fairy tale from the perspective of the villain and promises to be much creepier than the 1959 classic. Del Rey’s voice, with the help of a computer, matches the creepy look of the new movie.
Despite the glowing reviews of the Disney interns, this trailer is announcing a sequel to Snow White and The Huntsman – and a bad one. The only thing about this trailer that seems any better than the trailer for ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’ is the arrangement of the song. And a good song does not make a good movie. There’s nothing on screen to suggest this will actually be any better than Tomb Raider.
Disney scored during the Grammys 2014 boring show with a new trailer for Maleficent that featured a haunting cover of the Sleeping Beauty classic ditty “Once Upon A Dream,” sung by a sedated Lana Del Rey has the computer-made instrumental sounds; the primary melodies, and ear-friendly musical phrases that lock you into the song. This time, Miss Del Rey, more dramatic than ever, was re-born to sing this creepy version of “Once Upon a Dream” laying down in a forest.
Mainstream media is trying hard to promote the Disney film as one that “will take down sexism, racism, elitism and any other social problem that fairy tales perpetuate.” No kidding? Wake up people, this is Disney brainwashing.
The fairytale twister opens May 30 and stars Angelina Jolie as the eponymous evil sorceress who tangles with young Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) in Disney’s live-action dark fantasy. An easy and downgraded role for Miss Jolie after so much bad acting and failed attempts to become a movie director nominated for an Oscar. It’s good to see Miss Jolie back in alignment with her witchy, sociopathic vibe after years of that Saint Angie bullshit. Now get her a Snickers or something for god’s sake.
Miss Jolie has always shown dodgy taste in her choice of blockbusters, going all the way back to things like Tomb Raider and Mr & Mrs Smith, movies that made money in spite of the shallow, superficial writing. But the idea here of doing live action event films based on Disney villains is especially desperate as a franchise launch attempt.
