Well if you didn’t catch the new Maleficent “Dream” Trailer last night at the Grammys, Disney has posted it on their YouTube page for all to see. Check out the creepy rendition of “Once Upon a Dream” by Lana Del Rey. It really does set a tone for the film.

Maleficent realizes that Aurora may hold the key to peace in the land and is forced to take drastic actions that will change both worlds forever.

Looks like another colossal flop for Disney Studios.

 I expect the Nerd / Geek, genre boys are going to have a problem with this because there's "girly" stuff in this film (girl's and women and kissing...yuk).   I was never a member of the girl haters club.  Personally, I'd rather look at Angelina Jolie for 2 hours than watch Chris Hemsworth or Chris Evans prance around in their neat-o super hero costumes.

Darthbob... you obviously don't know the $$ power of appealing to pre-adolescent females... this is a solid investment - RL rendition of every little girls love of Sleeping Beauty? might as well print your own cash. I may not like it more than a mere afternoon whim (kind of like Snow White and the Huntsman), but I would never dare tossing into the manure pile where the likes of John Carter reside (because making flicks aimed at prepubescent male teens is much more hit and miss).

It looks stoopid and poorly made, but then there's no accounting for taste. It's going to be a surpirise if this 200 million dollar stroking of Mrs. Pitt's ego get's past breaking even.

@Calamity...I am a parent to one of the target audience you describe and she thought the trailer looks terrible.  This movie will not make enough to cover it's production and marketing budgets.
