Terrifying but beautiful!

Angelina Jolie looks enthralling in the freshly-released poster for the upcoming ‘Maleficent’ sequel.

The eerie portrait has a Rembrandt-like high contrast with bright white light illuminating Jolie's silhouette in the darkness. The evil villainess looks up with her piercing green eyes, dons a pair of creepy horns on her head, and wears a killer pair of massive wings on her back. Jolie's famous pout is painted a vibrant shade of red.

Jolie first starred as Maleficent, the mystical Sleeping Beauty antagonist, in the 2014 Disney live-action film named after her character. The revisionist story showed the star as a fairy who is betrayed by a man she loves, and she seeks revenge by targeting his daughter, Aurora, played by Elle Fanning. The film was a massive success, raking in over $758 million worldwide at the box office as reported by Box Office Mojo.

Disney digitally rolled out the promotional poster for the sequel on social media, which revealed the sequel's official title: ‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’. The imagery also reflected a brand new premiere date. The Mouse House bumped up the release date more than seven months early, to October 18, 2019, which Disney also confirmed on its verified Twitter account.
