|Maleficent opened May 30th. In Angelina Jolie’s first role in over three years, she plays the evil fairy who cursed Princess Aurora in Sleeping Beauty, and who was once a beautiful, pure-hearted young woman living an idyllic life in a peaceable forest kingdom. One day when she's ruthlessly betrayed, her pure heart turns to stone. Wanting revenge, Maleficent places a curse on Aurora, the newborn infant of the human king. But as the child grows up, Maleficent realizes Aurora may be the kingdom's only chance for peace.|
|Tammy stars Melissa McCarthy and was directed by husband, Ben Falcone. They wrote it together, from Falcone's early-morning epiphany.
