Trailer Tracker: Maleficent, Need for Speed and Noah
It's been awhile since we've posted an edition of Trailer Tracker, so we thought it would be nice to get back into the swing of thing right before the holidays!
This week, we've got trailers for Maleficent, Need for Speed and Darren Aronofsky's Noah.
The tale of "Sleeping Beauty" told from the perspective of the evil fairy, sounds like an interesting set up, as Disney will be presenting Maleficent, in May of 2014. Starring Angelina Jolie as the titular character and Elle Fanning as the Princess Aurora. With the film's budget close to $200 million, Maleficent might recapture the same audiences that flocked to see Oz: The Great and Powerful, as well as many of those that have fond memories of the classic 1959 animated film.
Need for Speed
There are plenty of people that love Aaron Paul, for his brilliant performance in Breaking Bad, but now he's getting behind the wheel and lending his talents to the popular video game adaptation, Need for Speed. The film looks pretty promising and with its nods to Vanishing Point and Fast and Furious aesthetic, it sure looks like it'll be one wild ride.
The closest thing to Darren Aronofsky crafting an epic tale, would be 2006's The Fountain, one of his best films. Now, he focus' on his most ambitious project yet, a telling of the Biblical flood and the Ark that traversed it, in Noah. Starring Russell Crowe, as Noah, as well as the likes of Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone. The film looks impressive and gives the Biblical tale, the scope that it deserves.
That's it for Trailer Tracker this week, if more trailers come out of Catching Fire, you can be sure to find them here next week, on Entertainment Fuse!
