Angelina Jolie's 'Maleficent' Has Its Release Date Moved Up!

Great news Disney fans: Angelina Jolie‘s upcoming highly anticipated film Maleficent has had its release date moved up!

The new Disney flick will now hit theaters on May 30, 2014 as opposed to July 2, 2014.

This will allow for Malecifent to have a calmer opening weekend, avoiding Transformers 4 and Fast & Furious 7, along with the World Cup which is slated during that time as well.

Angelina co-stars with Elle Fanning, Juno Temple, Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley and more in the movie. Angelina‘s daughter Vivienne Jolie-Pitt has a cameo!

ARE YOU EXCITED that Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent will hit theaters slightly earlier than planned???

    I think it sucks that Par deliberately didn’t put the unrated version on the $5 cheaper DVD. I know they’ve already made a profit off the movie so that’s why it pisses me off. Basically they’re charging you an extra $5 because they got greedy and decided to do a PG-13 theatrical release in the first place. Now they’re going to rip you off for another $5 when they could have easily put both version on the same DVD. Asshats.

  • wow

    I can’t help but think that Disney’s decision to move up the Maleficent release date is a direct result of TLR bombing in the “tentpole clash” with Despicable Me and studios saying there were too many tentpoles this year and they were too bunched together. Whatevs. This isn’t a bad move because the only other movie opening that weekend is a Seth McFarlane movie which is sure to be R-rated. The weekend before the new X-Men movie opens and the week after the only thing scheduled right now is a Tiny Tom flick directed by Doug Liman. So it could have a really good hold the 2nd weekend.

  • LMAO

    This will allow for Malecifent to have a calmer opening weekend, avoiding Transformers 4 and Fast & Furious 7, along with the World Cup which is slated during that time as well.

    So the biggest female star in you Loons eyes can’t compete so they’re giving her an easier weekend to open her movie…. hahaha

    This is really great news. Maleficient looks like a sure fire hit.

    Afternoon Folks. What Jared’s blurb doesn’t mention is that Pixar’s film “The Good Dinosaur” was moved out of the 5/20/2014 spot to 2015. This now opened up a spot in Disney’s schedule which made it possible to move Maleficent to May. I am still surprised that the studios would pit Transformers and F&F 7 against each other. I don’t get that strategy at all. It’s that exact same target demographic. Well, at least Maleficent is out of that mess.

    I’ve decided this story has great potential. I’m excited!

    The innocent but betrayed young woman turns to, shall we say, unorthodox methods to protect herself and her kingdom. Yea, I like it. Of course, the Hysterical Ladies Network would have hung her out to dry and s.l.u.t. shamed her in the process but, hey, she’s tough. She can take it.

    ‘World War Z’ director reveals original Russia-set ending

    WARNING: This article contains spoilers some readers may wish to avoid

    World War Z director Marc Forster has revealed details on the original ending for his blockbuster epic.

    Brad Pitt’s apocalypse thriller was originally meant to end on a huge-scale set piece in Russia but Forster and the production team chose to shoot a more intimate finale at the last minute, delaying the release of the zombie film.

    Speaking to Movies.com, Forster said that he felt the movie needed a more “quiet and suspenseful” ending than what was originally intended.

    “Basically in the original ending, after the Israel sequence and the plane crash, Gerry is in Russia, and the storyline of what he finds out at the WHO (World Health Organization) lab is what he finds in Russia but he applies his theory in a battlefield setting,” the filmmaker said.

    “We called it ‘The Battle of Moscow’, and it’s a huge battle with zombies and multiple other characters and ultimately Gerry defeats them by realizing that the zombies avoid him and go around him [after injecting himself with a virus]. So it’s in Russia, at night, in a snowstorm with thousands of zombies and big battles; kind of the scope of the Israel sequence.

    “Some of that footage is still in the film, you see it during the montage when Gerry journeys back to his family on that small boat, we see a few glimpses from that battle.

    “We never finished that footage because we all agreed after Israel and the plane crash you’re battle fatigued and you really want the movie to be more quiet and you don’t want it to go into another huge combat situation.”

    Despite negative pre-release buzz and rumors of behind-the-scenes clashes, World War Z grossed more than $500 million at the worldwide box office and was generally well-received by critics.

    No- I’ve had problems for days posting…and, yes, fat tick old manny the leathery cougar has a SUPER-DUPER embarrassing filmography.

    The move is also because Disney moved out “The Good Dinosaur”, leaving the May slot open.
    .
    Disney is pushing back the release of animated tentpole The Good Dinosaur by nearly 18 months, from May 30, 2014, to Nov. 25, 2015…..The shift comes several weeks after Pixar showed Good Dinosaur director Bob Peterson the door. With the filmmaker’s departure, insiders say Pixar realized the movie wouldn’t have been on time…
    As a result of Good Dinosaur’s relocation, Angelina Jolie’s live-action fairy tale Maleficent is moving up from July 2, 2014, to Good Dinosaur’s old date of May 30…..

  • Marginalized one

    @Caralyn:

    Like all studios you release your films at the most optimal box office earning time. Studio knows kids are out of school and this will go up against an R rated film. Studios make the decisions not ACTORS.

    Like WTMillers being released after all the blockbusters at the end of the frenzy so that the film had breathing room to maximize its profit.

    Don’t you think it is past time to keep trying to connect 2 female actors to one another who are completely seperate in all ways?

    Grow up if you are a juvenile there is hope for you.

    But if you are a loser adult FF rat then all is lost for you , present and future.

    Caught the Maniston bullshite (rumor yet again) from two threads ago…and as usual, what it’s about is: deflection, deflection, deflection from being ignored at TIFF…if your no account movie gets the stinker position at TIFF’s end, and no one currs, meanwhile Brad’s TYAS *WINS* TIFF, Angelina MEANWHILE is scouting locations for her a-list Oscar-ish film, and she’s getting another Oscar, for her already iconic philanthropy – face it, ANGELINA JOLIE IS BEING CROWNED A LEGEND in front of Maniston and her fug troll’s eyes….then WHAT pray tell, is she to do??? I’ll tell you what she do….she appeals to what keeps her relevant, her sad desperate cow dwindling base (and the bloids) with yet another preg rumor…her old standby. However the best way to call her bullshite is to simply watch the old hag at public events…bittch is high, she was high as a fcking KITE at TIFF..unless she got preg yesterday…give up the dream or the nightmare or the boring…she and her short bald nobody coattailing bf are not spawning…unless they’re doing it Sarah Jessica style and hiring a surrogate…using January jones eggs and Liam Hemsworth jizzo. Lololol

    .
    Transformers & F&F7 don’t open against each other. They open 2 weekends apart. Transformers on June 27 and F&F7 on July 8 but both are expecting to carry several weekends. Maleficent was scheduled for July 2 – right smack dab between the 2 SEQUELS. Sequels vs. an original film? We saw that this summer with WWZ. Putting distance between Maleficent and these 2 films makes a lot of sense. I know some people will say this is a prequel to Sleeping Beauty but that’s apples an oranges. An animated film vs. live action. Also, the rest of the release schedule has yet to fill in so there’s no way of knowing which other film(s) will land on the May 30th date.

  • Ⱦamsin

    I think this is a good move for Disney. If they are ready to go, why not be the first out of the gates? Other than that it just feels right for it to open as school classes start to wind down.

  • Passing Through

    Awwww…Jared’s new Ticky thread says her rep denied the pregnancy story to “him”. BUT…there’s still no denial on Peeps. Usually when US is writing fairytales the first thing Huvsy does is go running to Peeps with denials. Instead they made sure Ticky was seen in LA last night exiting a restaurant with a bag hiding her belly…and the pics emerged today when they knew the US story was coming out. I wonder if these two biitches every get tired of playing these silly ass PR games? Nevermind…I know the answer…

    @Passing Through:

    Thanks for the correction. I don’t know how I got the Transformers and F&F7 dated conflated. I blame everything on this cold I have. A poster on another site said that he thought Disney might drop the first trailer during Halloween, and then attach it to Thor; The Dark World. I think his reasoning has some merit.

    By the way, am I the only one who has noticed that Lamey did not carry the pic of Brad with that recently married couple that every other site has? My theory. The pic would prove what a lying fraud she is claiming that Brad’s face is “full.” His face has the same kind of fullness it get when he puts on weight.

    Great news. I will watch it when it get released in May 30,2014.

    Yes, I guess when you like someone that performs fellatio on bananas and hot dogs. Has to play a stripper that is 20 years to young for her and well, just about everything else. I can see why Angelina being a multiple award winning actress would be out of your wheel house. LMAO!
