All hail the Michelle Pfeiffer-assaince! It’s by no means been fully clear why the Oscar-nominated actress fell out of favor with Hollywood — aside from the same old growing older feminine performer factor which will or might not be going away in an allegedly extra woke trade — however it’s nice to have her in the whole lot once more. Fresh off of an all-too-brief, wordless cameo within the yr’s greatest money-gobbler (following an all-too-brief look through the climax of Ant-Man and the Wasp), she’s again once more, heading off towards Angelina Jolie within the teaser for Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.
The unique Maleficent got here out 5 summers in the past, and it supplied a revisionist spin on the Disney traditional Sleeping Beauty. Here, Jolie’s black-horned villain was really a wronged not-quite-hero who didn’t flip into a large dragon by movie’s finish. Indeed, the primary baddie was the not-so-charming prince, whereas “beauty” herself, Elle Fanning’s Princess Aurora, was mainly high-quality.
The sequel picks up years later, and the villain this time seems to be Pfeiffer’s Queen Ingrith. Early plot descriptions communicate of Ingrith inflicting a rift between Maleficent and Aurora, however the teaser’s important battle is between Jolie and Pfeiffer, who get right into a doozy of a mixture verbal tête-à-tête and staring contest. Sure, Jolie’s CGI-tainted eyes and insane cheekbones look like they’d triumph, however are they really a match for the previous Catwoman? We’d wish to assume Maleficent has her work lower out for her this time.
All this stated, don’t get too excited: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil ain’t out until October 18.
