Gravity

We don’t know how much you made in the past year, but it’s probably a safe bet that it’s a lot less than these ten Hollywood actresses did. Sandra Bullock tops the list with an impressive $51 million, but numbers 2-10 didn’t do too badly for themselves either. Can you guess who they are? Find out who the 2013 top earning actresses are after the jump.

Angelina Jolie Brad Pitt By the Sea

Offscreen, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are one of the most famous couples in the world. Onscreen, however, they haven’t co-starred since 2005′s Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which was mostly notable for being the movie that brought the couple together.

But that’ll change with By the Sea. Jolie is set to write and direct the Universal picture, and will also produce and star in it alongside Pitt. Hit the jump for more details.

Unbroken trailer

Angelina Jolie’s feature directing debut In the Land of Blood and Honey didn’t get a ton of attention. But her follow-up Unbroken is already looking like an early contender for the Oscar race, with an uplifting fact-based plot and a plum Christmas release date.

Domhnall Gleeson, Takamasa Ishihara, Garrett Hedlund, and Finn Wittrock also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.

Maleficent final trailer

Despite the ABC Family Channel voiceover, the angle used in this “last” trailer for Maleficent is a decent one. It pins the film firmly to the original Sleeping Beauty, and focuses on the “truth” of Maleficent’s past as a good fairy who went bad. Sure, there are all those great shots of Angelina Jolie that we’ve seen so many times in the past few months. But she looks so good as the character that it’s difficult to complain about them being repeated. As for the rest of it, well…

Maleficent IMAX poster

Disney is putting a lot of muscle behind its upcoming release Million Dollar Arm, but another Mouse House effort is also arriving soon, too. Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the evil sorceress from Sleeping Beauty, opens at the end of May. And despite the fact that we’ve seen many posters and a few trailers, it feels like this one is slipping into theaters more quietly than you’d expect from a Disney movie based on one of the company’s most popular films.

We’ve got some new materials regardless, and they mostly focus on the same image that was always going to be the core of the push for this movie: Angelina Jolie in makeup and headdress, flashing those cheekbones. Granted, if I was able to promote a movie with that imagery I’d use it to death, too. Check out a Maleficent IMAX poster, and several character posters, below. Read More »
