Maleficent Full-Length Angelina Jolie!

Fresh from the set of Maleficent comes these images of Angelina Jolie as… er, Maleficent. This is our first chance to see her whole costume in this movie, which retells Sleeping Beauty from the Big Bad’s point of view. (I’m guessing she’s just misunderstood…)

So mark your calendars for 2014…

New TDKR Trailer Looks Better Than the Rest

Finally, a trailer for The Dark Knight Rises that I can get behind. By now (after what seems like 1,348 other trailers), you know the deal: Batman. Catwoman. Bane. Hi-jinks ensue.

The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20.

Lena Headey Plays Another Kind of Game

Here’s a look at GAME OF THRONES’ wicked Queen Cersei herself, Lena Headey, in another evil role: Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal in this September’s Dredd, the new film adaptation of the popular British comic strip Judge Dredd.

Headey helpfully described her character to the L.A. Times:

“She’s a prostitute who kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business. Ma-Ma is a bit of a man-hater. I think of her like an old great white shark who is just waiting for someone bigger and stronger to show up and kill her. She’s ready for it. In fact, she can’t wait for it to happen. And yet no one can get the job done. She’s an addict, so she’s dead in that way, but that last knock just hasn’t come. This big, fat, scarred shark moving through the sea and everyone flees, and she’s like, ‘Will someone just have the balls to do it? Please?’”

Clearly, this is not a Judge Dredd story movie audiences have seen before. You probably have nightmares about Sylvester Stallone’s 1995 adaptation that tried to twist Judge Dredd into a buddy-cop movie by pairing him with a goofy criminal played by… er, Rob Schneider.
