With so many movies being released throughout the year, it can be hard to keep track. To help, check out our preview of the movies that are opening this weekend:
“Maleficent”: Forget Aurora! As you can tell from the title, this fun new take on Sleeping Beauty is all about Maleficent. Angelina Jolie takes on the title role in this Disney fantasy film, where fans will find out how the sorceress lost her wings and ended up so deliciously evil. Elle Fanning & Sharlto Copley also star. Rated PG.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West”: If you’re not looking to spend time with the family after the holiday weekend, this one might be for you. From “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane (who also stars), this is definitely not family far. He plays a man in the Old West, where he must take on a villainous Liam Neeson and decide between Charlize Theron and Amanda Seyfried. Giovanni Ribisi also stars. Rated R.
Last weekend’s holdovers include “X-Men: Days of Future Past” and Adam Sandler’s “Blended,” though don’t count “Godzilla,” “Neighbors” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” out just yet.
