As promised, today marks the release of the first trailer for Disney’s big screen presentation of their iconic baddie, Maleficent.
The trailer itself? Looks pretty bland. The carpet bombed CG environments just really don’t look appealing. How many times can we see something glow or something unfold and then glow before it becomes old hat. The trailer did more to showcase the bland design of the film than the actual story or Angelina Jolie’s performance. Say what you will about how bland the film looks, but Jolie looks like she was born to play this role.
Disney is dumping a pretty penny into thing. Let’s hope next time they role out a trailer it has some meat on its bones.
