    Maleficent feeds make-up craze on YouTube

    Published — Sunday 1 June 2014
    If you want red lips like Angelina Jolie in “Maleficent,” Internet make-up artists Nicole Guerriero and Kandee Johnson will be happy to help.
    The two are among dozens of video bloggers posting make-up tutorials that have helped sell out products tied to the Walt Disney Co. film, which opens Friday. Estee Lauder’ MAC Cosmetics, the studio’s marketing partner, developed a line for “Maleficent” and works with Web personalities like Guerriero.
    “I love that creepy, sexy vibe that Angelina is giving off in the movie,” Guerriero said in an interview. “People want to re-create that.”
    Disney and MAC Cosmetics are tapping a booming audience at Google’s YouTube, where views of beauty-related videos have more than doubled to 700 million a month in three years. With social media, the partners can reach audiences with a precision print and TV lack, finding fans who might buy lipstick, as well as tickets to the live-action film based on the 1959 classic “Sleeping Beauty.”

    It isn’t Magneto or Mystique, but Disney’s Maleficent, that’s looking to bring down the X-Men this weekend.
    After opening strong over the Memorial Day weekend with $111 million in North America and more than $300 million globally, “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is estimated to bring in more than $31 million this weekend, according to Deadline. The film brought in an estimated $9.5 million on Friday.
    That’s well below the $24.2 million that “Maleficent” brought in on Friday. Disney’s live-action family film, which stars Angelina Jolie as the horned enchantress who plagues Princess Aurora, is expected to top the box office this weekend with more than $65 million. The film is said to be playing well to the girls, moms and families that made “Frozen” a global success — a film that incidentally passed “Iron Man 3″ this week to become the fifth-highest grossing film of all time globally.
    “Maleficent” currently rates a 56 — “mixed or average reviews” –with critics on Metacritic, while audiences have rated it a 7.1 — “generally favorable reviews.” Writing for SPINOFF ONLINE, Phil Pirrello said the film is neither terrible nor good. “Rather, it just takes up space, which is much worse.”
    This weekend’s other opener, Seth McFarlane’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West,” brought in $6.1 million on Friday. The R-rated Western comedy will likely finish third at the North American box office with an estimated $16 million to $17 million. It is also getting mixed reviews from both critics and audiences on Metacritic.

    Maleficent” Sits Tres Jolie Atop Box Office Mountain, Seth MacFarlane Dies In The West

    MAY 31, 2014 12:27 PM

    I’m still waiting for several estimates to come in but it’s all Disney and Angelina Jolie at the box office this weekend. Driven by its family friendly PG rating and a large take from its Imax screens, “Maleficent” easily cruised into first place this weekend, grossing an estimated $68-71 million. The movie received an A Cinemascore and should enjoy a huge Saturday and Sunday, which might propel the picture close to, if not over, the $70 million mark.

    Seth MacFarlane found out that dying is easy, comedy is hard, as “A Million Ways To Die” greatly under performed and will come in at only $16 million or so. It seems that moviegoers looking for a laugh preferred known quantities like “Neighbors” and “The Other Woman” than a comedy western starring the guy who directed “Ted”.

    Elsewhere, “X-Men” dropped around 65-67%, leaving it in second place at $30 million or so, which is what I projected yesterday. “Godzilla” plunged again, which left it around $10 million. And “Blended” held in a bit better than I projected, rounding out the Top 5 at $8 million.

    Here are the full Top 10 projections

    ‘Maleficent’ Reviews: Critics Hail Angelina Jolie
    • By Keerthi Mohan

    “Maleficent”, the Robert Stromberg-directed fantasy adventure movie that has Angeline Jolie playing a horned evil witch, is the rethinking of Disney’s “Sleeping Beauty”, and critics are unanimous that the flick truly belongs to its lead actress.
    The 90-minute movie throws light on the factors that lead to Maleficent turning evil, and Jolie has managed to provide an emotional depth to the character, critics feels.
    “This is Jolie’s film because of the Maleficent she makes. Everyone else, even Aurora, fades in her presence,” wrote Betsy Sharkey of Los Angeles Times, and James Berardinelli of Reel Views appears to agree.
    “Angelina Jolie’s interpretation of the title character, which transforms the animated icon into a complex, fully realized woman, provides emotional depth and breadth,” Berardinelli wrote.
    “…Because of Angelina Jolie’s forceful and nuanced performance, the title character escapes the one-dimensionality that trapped her in the 1959 Disney classic. Here, she’s a deeply tragic and conflicted figure who seeks solace and finds redemption in the most unlikely of ways,” he added, praising Jolie.
    “Maleficent” is Jolie’s first film in four years. She was last seen in “The Tourist”, released in December 2010.
    While Jolie is being heaped with praises, the film as a whole has been critiqued for lacking a proper storytelling technique, while some say it lacks enchantment.
    Forbes wrote that the movie is a “mishmash of seemingly random scenes and incidents”, and it does not have a story to tell. The review also noted that the movie barely resembles a finished feature.
    Variety’s Andrew Barker noted that the film was rushed and also pointed out that some of the bonding scenes between Maleficent and Princess Aurora appeared forced. Several other critics felt that the other characters in the movie could have been better developed.
    However, “Maleficent” is expected to topple “X-Men: Days of Future Past” which had a good Memorial Day weekend. The Jolie starrer is expected to have a $60 million opening and is expected to lure a lot of female audience away.
    The movie, produced by Joe Roth, is not expected to match the $116 million debut of “Alice in Wonderland” in March 2010 or the $79.1 million opening of “Oz the Great and Powerful” in March 2013, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
    Those two Disney movies were also produced by Roth.

    Disney’s Maleficent tops Tom Cruise actioner Edge of Tomorrow but the latest X-Men feature soars ahead of the rest.

    Online film chatter in the UK has been dominated over the past week by X-Men: Days of Future Past.

    The superhero sequel generated 53,512 comments across social networks on its first week of release, with 17,521 of those expressing an intent-to-view.

    Opening this week, Maleficent proved most popular will more than 8,000 mentions – more than double the 3,320 that commented about sci-fi action film Edge of Tomorrow, starring Tom Cruise.

    Of those films coming soon, comedy sequel 22 Jump Street edged towards 7,000 mentions, with 68% expressing intent-to-view.

    However, Grace of Monaco, starring Nicole Kidman, barely moved the dial with just 225 comment.

    I think by now everyone knows that anything the Jolie-Pitts touch turns to gold.
    This is a living lesson for all you kids out there………….take notes:………….it is AUTHENTICITY…………. and GENUINESS…………..and BEING REAL…………………and BEING TRUE TO YOURSELF……………..instead of ALLOWING OTHERS TO DICTATE WHO YOU ARE and CRAFT A FALSE IMAGE OF YOU AND FEED IT TO THE PUBLIC…………….these are the things that will serve you well in the long run, making you succeed and keep succeeding loooooooooong after the flash-in-the-pan, opportunistic, INAUTHENTIC, pretentious liars are unmasked by time itself, when the lies they told about: being the one who had wanted kids; wanting to “be a young mother;” (LMFAO) being someone who wants to “travel the world”; wanting to direct; etc., etc., etc. are revealed to be just that:……one big fat aging greek pack of lies.

    Saw it yesterday with a half dozen 8 year olds and everyone loved it!!! I’m going back tomorrow when I’m not distracted by taking kids to the bathroom, cleaning up spilled popcorn and soda and listening and laughing at their excited chatter. Jolie and Fanning both rock and own their parts.

    Angelina Jolie’s movie is a huge hit and Seth MacFarlane’s is not. All is right in the world.
