    Reviews are out. Looks like this will continue the streak of "critics hate it, audience loves it" for recent live-action Disney flicks.

    Thought it was terrible. Maleficent was very passive in the film and barely does anything. Has a few goofy one-liners and that's about it.

    Whoever has kids with Elle Fanning, odds are they're gonna come out decent looking no matter how much of a gargoyle you may be.

    I've always wanted to see Elle Fanning as Zelda in a Legend of Zelda movie, and these photos make me want to see that happen even more now. That last photo with the swords & shield, come on!

    Seeing Pfeiffer in these photos pretty much confirms she's made a deal with the devil. She looks amazing.

    Hitting this after work to see what's up. I hear tell it's darker than the first, and still kinda shocked they stuck the PG rating.

    I just got back from seeing the film. It's always a joy to see Michelle up on the big screen... but no doubt this is a flawed film.

    Things I liked:
    - Pfeiffer really had the lead role here and is given the most material to work with (I can see why she said yes).
    - The visuals and climax were excellent.
    - Jolie was wonderful once more as Maleficent.
    - The story was more exciting and engaging than the first movie.
    - The score was quite effective.

    Things I disliked:
    - The movie had some clear pacing problems. The middle stretch in particular suffers.
    - Outside of Maleficent and Queen Ingrith, the characters were thinly drawn.
    - The cinematography was a little too dark/dull in places.
    - The ending for Queen Ingrith was misjudged (I might be alone in thinking this)

    Based on the box office, it appears unlikely that we'll be seeing a 'Maleficent 3'.

    I think I enjoyed this more than the first one. The first one was so cringey. However, a lot of the things/characters are quite undercooked and the more I think about it, the story just felt rushed.

    If Hollywwood movie Execs had any brain , which they dont , they could easily greenlight a smaller budget for Maleficent 3.

    Make it for $100-150 million instead of 150-200 and everything will be fine cause this one can easily make its money back although it wont make any significant profit.

    I liked it quite a bit better than the first one. It does drag a little bit towards the end and it's nothing special, but I found the first to be a little boring and pretty unmemorable. Whereas this one was far more entertaining.

    At least now Maleficent 2 made its money back. Everything from now on will be profit but it wont be much. It will be lucky if its hits $450 mil.

    DOMESTIC (22%)
    $85,240,391
    INTERNATIONAL (78%)
    $299,906,164
    WORLDWIDE
    $385,146,555

    They can make a 3rd one with a smaller budget. The first two had budgets of $180 mil each.

    They won’t make a third with such a low domestic gross, even with a lower budget.
