Continuation of the film “Maleficent”, released in 2014, stormed the new rolling peaks.
Picture “Maleficent: mistress of the dark” was released in Russian cinemas on 17 October and already more than a week is not losing its leading position, leaving behind a real film phenomenon “the Joker”. Fees “Maleficent” is very close to cherished for all films milestone of 1 billion rubles and there is no doubt that for the beginning of the weekend, the tape is easily overcome.
On the first picture worked for Robert Stromberg, the Director’s chair in the sequel took Joaquim Ronning, who shot to Disney a fifth of the franchise “pirates of the Caribbean: Dead men tell no tales”. Ronning has set for itself the task of global expansion of the fairy world, shown in the first film, and he succeeded handsomely. Continuing the story develops several years after the events of “Maleficent” – recall that in the first part of Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) put a curse on the young Princess Aurora (Elle fanning), but realizing his terrible mistake, the magician manages to remove it. Time has passed, but in the minds of people Maleficent remains evil and ruthless, her unspoken fear. It is on these fears to continue and the opponent plays Maleficent, the Queen prudently Ingrit performed by Michelle Pfeiffer. 61-year-old actress had personally presented the painting in Moscow in early October.
Aurora successfully ruled by the fabulous marshes, and incredible creatures living on them, got even more bizarre. The girl enthusiastically accepts the offer of marriage from her beloved Prince Philip, son of Queen Ingrit. And now it is small – the newly minted bride and Maleficent, who is against the future of marriage, have dinner with the groom’s parents. He will break not only the fragile peace between the magical swamps and the Kingdom of men, and even warm relationship of Aurora and Maleficent. And this achieves power Ingrit that wants to do away forever with the rebellious Moors and to build his Kingdom.
Despite the fact that Maleficent is the main star of the picture, in the second part she got clearly less screen time in this film, of course, lost. Most of this time given to many new characters, which sometimes spelled out rather vaguely. So every episode with the gorgeous Angelina Jolie is now the weight of gold. She managed to compose the image of the heroine in the brand new paint, so the character of Maleficent is revealed from a different angle. The actress is incredible in this role, she loves her character and even associating himself with it: “I, like my character Maleficent, is sometimes considered cold and evil woman. But it is only an image, a shell. Maleficent behaves because of the uncertainty. I experienced similar feelings after a divorce,” confessed Jolie.
Overall, the picture “Maleficent: mistress of the dark,” pleasing to the eye variety of magical creatures, the beauties already familiar to the audience and previously unseen lands, large-scale battles and visual effects, original costumes. And though the plot and you can complain about, the film is a great option for family viewing, because everyone will find here something of their own. Another reason for going to the movies would be that in the near future we probably will have the third part of “Maleficent” – the sequel said Michelle Pfeiffer at a press conference in Moscow.
