Yeah, That 'Maleficent' Trailer With the Haunting Lana Del Ray Song Is Exquisitely Chilling
We’ve been burned so many times by these gothic fairy-tale re-imaginings that it’s been difficult to work up much enthusiasm for the re-imagining of Sleeping Beauty, centered around the villain, Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent. The fact that it’s already undergone reshoots and that it’s likely a PG-rated film puts even more damper on the film, set for release on May 30th.
On the other hand, this trailer featuring Lana Del Rey’s haunting “Once Upon a Dream,” changes everything. I can only hope the film itself has a similar tone. Of course, the most terrifying thing about the trailer is Jolie’s bone structure: She could kiss you on the cheek and rip a gash in your face with her cheekbones.
