It was recently reported that ‘Gravity,’ ‘Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban’ and Children of Men’ helmer Alfonso Cuaron is “deep in talks” to direct the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise spinoff, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.’ Global Post has today posted an update straight from Cuaron, who reveals that he won’t direct the film. “I have a lot of love for that universe,” Cuaron says, “and I tremendously admire J.K. Rowling, but today, for the present, projects based around lots of visual effects don’t attract me. I’m coming out of a five-year process of doing visual effects and now I sort of want to clean my palate of that a little bit.”
Lead by Angelina Jolie as Disney’s notorious evil queen, ‘Maleficent’ co-stars Elle Fanning as Aurora, and Sharlto Copley as Stefan, the half-human, half-fairy bastard son of the human king. In the film, Miranda Richardson plays Queen Ulla, a fairy queen who is Maleficent’s aunt – and dislikes her niece. Kenneth Cranham plays the human king who plots to conquer the fairy kingdom. Sam Riley takes the role of Diaval, a raven who changes into human form and is Maleficent’s right hand. Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton and Lesley Manville play the three pixie fairies in the tale.
Set for release on May 28th in the UK and May 30th in the US, the film explores the origins of the evil fairy Maleficent and what led her to curse Princess Aurora in Disney’s animated classic ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ Academy Award-winning production designer Robert Stromberg (Avatar, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and Oz The Great and Powerful) directs from a script by Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and Alice in Wonderland).
Do you your recall when you were first approached to play Aurora/Sleeping Beauty, and did you have any affinity with the character growing up?
Elle Fanning: Without reading the script or anything I went in and I met with Robert Stromberg (director), Linda Woolverton (writer) and Joe Roth (producer), and from that first meeting they told me about the story and that I would be playing Sleeping Beauty – which is like a dream come true for every girl in the world (laughs), to a play a Disney Princess. I was down. From that meeting we got along so well and they were so nice. Then they gave me the script and I went home and read it right away.

Michael Fassbender Talks ‘Macbeth’; Praises Director Justin Kurzel, Marion Cotillard & Paddy Considine
While we’re still awaiting a concrete release date for the much anticipated film, Michael Fassbender has opened up about his portrayal of the titular anti-hero in Justin Kurzel’s feature adaptation of William Shakespeare’s legendary play ‘Macbeth’: “(It was) scary. I hope I did justice to it. It’s pretty big boots to fill, but I loved the experience and loved working with Justin and Marion. She’s so courageous and such a wonderful actor to work with. Paddy Considine, I’ve been a big fan of his for a long time so it was great to do scenes with him as well.”
‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Writer Describes It As A “Disaster Movie, Extinction Level Event”; James McAvoy Also Gives His Thoughts
Out and about on the promotional rounds for ‘X-Men Days of Future,’ writer-producer Simon Kinberg has shed some light on the next film in the X-Men franchise, 2016′s ‘X-Men Apocalypse.’ After a tantalizing post-credit sequence and a fantastic reception from fans and critics alike with ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ anticipation is sure to be sky high for the follow-up.
Asked what we should expect from the ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ script, Simon Kinberg said, “The thing that we’ve spent the most time talking about is not just the visual execution of the character, which is its own challenge – creating a character that’s the most powerful I think of any mutant villain that we’ve seen in the X-Men movies so far. More powerful than Magneto. The kind of scope and scale we’re talking about is like disaster movie, extinction level event. Sort of Roland Emmerich-style moviemaking, which you’ve never seen in an X-Men movie, or any superhero movie, which I think is exciting.”
