    This looks terrible. Elle Fanning has the worst accent ever. And I have no idea what the story is beyond special effects. Totally disappointing.

    Has Disney done one original thing in the last twenty years?

    I can’t wait for this film! I am glad they followed a little from the original Disney tale so far from what I got to see in the trailer! Snow White, and Hansel and Gretel just to mention a couple were one of the few horrible productions that followed with Disney titles and the stories had nothing to do with the original tales. What is the point of recreating this beautiful stories and distort them?! They have nothing to do with the original stories. On the other hand I am not a big fan of Angelina Jolie just because her movies are so predictable and redundant! And since I didn’t expect to see her in a movie like this I am actually looking forward to see what she has to offer in this film. Considering most of her acts are Lora Croft type, wonder stunt woman where nothing happens to her kicking asses everywhere. Once again her movies are super predictable that I am looking forward to see her act in this film playing a different role!

    Can’t stand Jolie. She’s just an attention whore and I assume this film will be shoved down our throats until it comes out. Hope it bombs.

    Looks great! Disney’s slate (post Lone Ranger) is killing it.
