Movie News: 'Maleficent' Poster and Trailer; Plus First Images; 'Temple Run' Heading to Big Screen

Nov 13, 2013

Malificent

Maleficent: Angelina Jolie makes for an evil-looking Maleficent in the first poster and trailer for the upcoming movie, which is appropriate since her character is, after all, well-known as a villain in Sleeping Beauty. But the movie itself is an origin story, explaining how the nasty royal actually began as a pure-hearted, yet fierce protector before suffering a betrayal. Sharlto Copley, Elle Fanning, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple also star; the movie is due out on May 30, 2014. [Collider]

Temple Run: The popular mobile game Temple Run is heading to the big screen. Warner Bros. is close to a deal to purchase movie rights, with David Heyman (Gravity, Harry Potter) ready to produce. The "endless" running game allows the player to "race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs." A sequel and two spin-offs, the latter themed for Disney's Oz the Great and Powerful and Pixar's Brave, have already been released for the game, first pubilshed in 2011. [The Wrap]

Temple Run

Napoleon: Rupert Sanders, who made his directorial debut with Snow White and the Huntsman, has added another project to his to-do list. Napoleon is described as a "Scarface-style" biographical portrait of the French military leader. Frankly, we don't know what that means. Drugs? A bad Cuban accent? Hundreds of f-bombs? Nor do we know yet when the movie might start production, since Sanders is working on three other prospects, but a script by Jeremy Doner is in place for this one. [Deadline]

American Hustle TV Spot: David O. Russell's forthcoming American Hustle is one of the most anticipated of the year, with a powerhouse cast led by Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Jennifer Lawrence. The first TV spot has dropped, and it packs arresting images, fab character moments and previously unseen footage into 33 seconds. The movie will open in New York and Los Angeles on December 13 and then expand nationwide. [Sony Pictures via Coming Soon]
