Disney, Angelina Jolie and Robert Stromberg has just released the poster to their latest movie, Maleficent. We knew it was coming but now we are a little closer with the poster saying it will be released Summer 2014, which is really May 30, 2014. Angelina has not been on-screen in about three and a half years and I can"t wait to see her.
Synopsis: A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal — an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading king’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant, Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom — and perhaps to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.
