    This is the very best news! Thank you Gemini. 😘

    Wow, Jared. I’m impressed! A new thread for NEW news and not news that’s 12 hours old! You go, boy!

    On another note – I looked the release schedule and the only other movie listed for Oct 18 is something called “Untitled Blumhouse Productions Project.” So it’s a good date – and 2 weekend before Halloween. Oct 4 has the Joker movie, so that’ll be in it’s 3rd weekend when Mal2 comes out. Oct 11 has a Will Smith movie, Zombieland 2(after 8 years!) and the Addams Family reboot. Overall it seems like a good date with good BO potential. Although, to be honest, I’m not sure if it’ll make as much money since it’s not opening in the summer or Xmas break when all the kids are out of school.

    Woo Hoo! Great news to wake up to. Thanks Gemini.

  • tboz

    Excited, great news, will do well at the BO just because. Very excited to see Michelle working with Angie.

  • mahbelle

    She’ll bring all her kids to the premiere and they will all be wearing black clothing and the girls will be dressed like boys.

  • cookiemonster8

    Yay!!! Go Angie! Can’t wait to see Michelle and Angie together.

  • Gemini675

    Maleficent and Mistress of Evil are both trending on twitter!

  • Gemini675

    You were the first person I thought of when they brought the date forward! Only 7 months to release date and the promo will be starting much sooner than that. YAYYYYYY!

  • toastie postie

    Yes!!!! Time’s a wasting for this gal. I don’t have time to wait and wait. 😆 Wow what a surprise!

  • cee

    Woohoo!!!!!! I knew today was going to be a good day.

    Angelina Jolie Sequel ‘Maleficent 2’ Moves Up To Fall 2019

    Here’s a huge jump on the calendar: Disney is moving the Angelina Jolie vehicle Maleficent: Mistress of Evil from its post Memorial day May 29 release date next year in 2020 to this year, Oct. 18.

    That pre-Halloween frame use to be a time on the calendar where films went to die at the box office, but Universal/Miramax/Blumhouse’s Halloween changed all that last year with a $76.2M opening, proving once again that the right product will draw anyone at any time of year (another example is how New Line’s It turned the once dormant post-Labor Day period into one of the more lucrative weekends at the B.O.)

    Maleficent: Mistress of Evil will compete against an untitled Blumhouse movie on that date and MGM’s animated version of The Addams Family.

    Disney also dropped a new teaser poster for the pic this morning. Joachim Ronning directs the sequel to the $758.5M global grossing 2014 hit which centers around the femme villain from Disney’s classic Sleeping Beauty.

    Disney will be at the upcoming exhibitor-studio convention CinemaCon in Las Vegas with a two hour session during the afternoon on Wednesday April 3. The question everyone is wondering is how much Fox fare will be in that session; the smart guess being that the Disney-Fox merger will have taken place by that time.

    It’s really amazing that so many are posting on different social media expressing their excitement about the new Maleficent poster & its new release date. They want to see AJ on screen again.

  • toastie postie

    Wow, the twitter page for Angelina is just flooded with excitement. So many posting the poster and their excitement at the news.

  • toastie postie

    Thanks for your posts, Bap.

  • toastie postie

    Hi, OP. Truly great news! Woo hoo!

  • Orianna Petroy

    Hi Toastie!😘Disney for some reason understood our excitement and did the right thing…😉

  • neer

    It’s really different when there’s good news about her…. the people are just filled with so much excitement & really looking forward to see her on the big screen. And they are not shy in saying it on line. Usually, it’s always trending when it’s about her.

    I’m not sure any of us will calm down after hearing this great news. I don’t think I will.

    Looks cool what I’m most interested in is seeing Jolie and Pfeifer together on screen. Should be awesome if her performance in Stardust is any indication.

  • tboz

    Its wonderful. People don’t realize her impact on people and how many people do want to see her onscreen again and really are fans. We argue back and forth with idiots and trolls about her as a person. Of course we don’t know her personally but we have seen, read, and heard a lot about her that is good.
    I see some people I wont call any names who is saying it won’t do really well. Again a fake fan who always shows their colors. Always a negative person on everyone but you know who.
    Anyhoo I will await the trailer and movie.Have a nice day true fans the rest can f off.

  • toastie postie

    Hi, Lyric. So unexpected. I wasn’t thinking this would be the Angie film we would see this year. Wow.

  • Lady Valeria Doria(n) Grey

    That poster is amazing…..

  • lyric

    Hi Toastie! Neither was I. I was resigned to waiting until 2020. That’s why this news is so exciting.

  • Felinelilly

    Catching you to say that I really like your book so far. I’m 5 chapters in, I like the way you’re setting up your story. This is coming from someone who hasn’t read Pride and Prejudice, your book is really good just as a stand alone.

  • toastie postie

    Like I said, I’m not getting any younger.

  • lyric

    But you’re getting better. 😊

  • toastie postie

    😆You are too kind.

  • JPlove

    Seems we’ll see a lot of Brad, Angie, and the Jolie-Pitt kids promoting Ad Astra, OUATIH, and Mal 2. 🤗 
    🤞🏽If release dates remain unchanged 🤞🏽
    Ad Astra May 24th
    OUATIH July 29th
    Mal 2 October 18th

    Hi toastie,I’m so happy to hear this news today. Do you think it’s a good thing it is coming out 6 months earlier?

  • Jaye

    Mistress of Evil sounds like she’s going back to her dark side… I hope the story is a little more fleshed out than the first. I liked the first one and have seen it several times, but some things just didn’t make sense. Angelina was great, but the story needed work. Even people who didn’t like the movie, think she did a really good job.

    I’m guessing that the new released date is because Disney will be acquiring the Fox properties and might want to put an MCU film into the slot originally intended for Maleficent. They are going to be extremely busy with the new acquisitions and streaming service, so if Maleficent is ready, why not release it early.

    I wonder why MAYA, with her Disney contacts, didn’t tell us the film was opening early? I guess because of that Disney no more chatting order, which was to start as of March. Maybe, with the film already FINISHED , they don’t need her project manager services. Is she still chatting?

  • JPlove

    I love Mal 1 and am anxiously awaiting Mal 2💃🏽 I know 2 will perform as well as or possibly better than 1 💃🏽💃🏽
    The poster is intriguing. I hope the next one will be with MP and then one with the cast. I know I’m reaching 😁 BUT I hope Shi and Knoxy are in this one. Maybe Shi can be Marcus.😂😂😂

  • toastie postie

    I think so. Disney saw something here and wants it out sooner.
