  • Lana Del Rey makes her comeback with chilling soundtrack to Angelina Jolie's Maleficent. And what a duo they make...

    Angelina Jolie and Lana Del Rey just became our new favourite duo, thanks to the premiere of a new Maleficent trailer.

    Not only is Angelina in full evil villain mode, but she’s assisting Lana Del Rey’s music comeback as she provides the soundtrack to the new clip.

    And with Del Rey’s haunting vocals transforming the Sleeping Beauty‘s Once Upon A Dream, you’re left wondering why the captivating twosome haven’t worked together sooner.

    It’s kind of perfect.

    When we say perfect, of course, we mean far more spooky than we remember the classic Disney tale to be. But that’s where Angelina comes into her own.

    Making her on-screen comeback as the Mistress of All Evil, the Oscar-winning actress joins Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, in the haunting reboot of Disney’s 1959 animated movie.

    ‘Angelina Jolie, she’s just incredible,’ Fanning told E! News. ‘Meeting her and getting to watch her, she just looks amazing. She has these cheekbones and these horns. It’s really, really beautiful.’

    She’s not wrong. Ange looks positively breathtaking with piercing green eyes, blood red lips and a witchy-white complexion. 

    The new trailer premiered during last night’s GRAMMYs 2014, and it has us counting down until the film’s release on 30 May.

    Speaking about the new movie last year, Angelina told EW: ‘It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman.

    ‘I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities.’

    Adding: ‘It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villan. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.’
