Hot Sheet: Forget the Evil Queen, What About the Prince?

Our top 10 entertainment and events highlights this week include Dolly Parton, Gore Vidal, Dustin Lance Black, and Maleficent, which features Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip.



1. FILM: Maleficent
Drag queens around the world are polishing their horns and perfecting their cackles in preparation of the opening of Maleficent, a live-action (but CGI-enhanced) Disney film that retells Sleeping Beauty through the eyes of its diabolical villain. Perfectly cast in the title role, Angelina Jolie sends chills and thrills with a red-lipped, white-toothed grin, as she curses Princess Aurora (Elle Fanning) and wages fiery war against her father King Stefan in this reimagined fairy tale. Plus there's handsome Brenton Thwaites as Prince Phillip. Maleficent opens in wide release this weekend. Watch the trailer below. – Daniel Reynolds
