RAVENS, FAIRIES & DARK FORESTS IN FIRST 'MALEFICENT' EPIC TRAILER WITH ANGELINA JOLIE, IMELDA STAUNTON, TOBY REGBO, ELLE FANNING, SAM RILEY! RUPERT SANDERS TO DIRECT 'NAPOLEON' HISTORICAL DRAMA

FILM ON NAPOLEON
TO BE HELMED BY SNOW WHITE'S RUPERT SANDERS
A new historical drama is to be expected in the future: The Hollywood Reporter writes that Rupert Sanders (SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN) is going to helm a film on NAPOLEON the infamous French general and ruler from the 18th and 19th century! To be produced by 300 producer Gianni Nunnari, it will be a biopic on one of history’s most outsized personalities, a genius who believed in himself almost too much, as he could inspire hundreds of thousands to do his military and political bidding. Bonaparte rose to power through a series of revolutions at the turn of the 19th century, riding the liberty wave of the French Revolution and becoming Emperor of France. Using brilliant strategy, he made France into a major world power, but his fortune turned after he invaded Russia. His defeat at the Battle of Waterloo is one of history’s most famous battles!
We might watch NAPOLEON on TV too, since I informed you this spring that Steven Spielberg wants to make mini series based on Stanley Kubrick's unfinished scenario.

MALEFICENT TRAILER
ANGELINA JOLIE IS EVIL WITCH 
Disney has released the first trailer for their upcoming fairy tale movie adaptation MALEFICENT which comes to theatres next May with Angelina Jolie playing  beautiful, pure hearted young woman, Maleficent who 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.
MALEFICENT CAST  
The cast also includes Elle Fanning as Aurora (with a truly horrid British accent as you can hear in the trailer), Sharlto Copley as king Stefan, Brenton Thwaites as prince Philip, Juno Temple as Thistlewit, Miranda Richardson as Fairy queen Ulla, Imelda Staunton as Knotgrass, Toby Regbo as young Stefan, Sam Riley will portray Diaval, a raven who changes into human form and is Maleficent’s right hand! Almost $200 million expensive movie is directed by Robert Sromberg who was Oscar winning art director of AVATAR and ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
