ILO ILO for Best Feature Film
Angelina Jolie’s icy looks are finally being put to good use as the Hollywood actress stars in Maleficent as the titular cold-hearted Queen in the first trailer for Disney’s Maleficent. Known as the “untold story” of the iconic Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, Maleficent is due to be released in theatres in May 2014 after being brought forward by Disney. The film also stars Elle Fanning as the young princess Aurora as well as Sharlto Copley, Sam Riley, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville.
The final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is notably different from all the trailers that’s come before it in one way: it shows the arena. For most fans of Catching Fire, you’ll probably already know about the mega plot twist towards the middle of the second book, it’s already been spoiled by all the past trailers; Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) are forced to go back into the arena.
Yesterday, Marvel unveiled the trailer for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is now a known fact that Scarlett Johansson will be playing quite an active role as Black Widow in this movie.
Like Iron Man 3, Winter Soldier takes place after the Earth-altering events of The Avengers. Chris Evans’s Steve Rogers (a.k.a Captain) is seen trading flirty dialogue with Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) before going off to battle, sparring with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), and most importantly dealing with The Winter Soldier who turns out to be his former friend Bucky Barnes.
With the new release of another trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, here are some of the goodies you can expect in the second film: the return of Orlando Bloom’s Legolas, whom many of the Lord of the Rings fans will be familiar with; the debut of new characters like Evangeline Lilly’s elf warrior maiden Tauriel who catches Legolas’s eye; and a bigger role for Smaug the Dragon, played via motion capture by none other than Benedict Cumberbatch. And just a fun fact for all of you who don’t know, Cumberbatch and Hobbit star Martin Freeman are already well acquainted; they’re co-stars on the British crime drama Sherlock.
