We have to confess: our favourite Angelina Jolie look, as of late, has to be her dressed up as the character Maleficent.

It's been a while since we had further news on the upcoming film of the same name after an official trailer (below) was revealed during the Grammy Awards in January, but now Entertainment Weekly have featured the formidable character on their cover.

In an interview with the magazine, Jolie laughed (not cackled), "It is really funny when people say you’d be obvious for a great villain".

But it's not all evil. The film retells Disney's classic Sleeping Beauty from the wicked godmother's point-of-view. Jolie said, "The exercise wasn’t 'how can we have fun with a villain?' It was: What turns people evil and vile and aggressive and cruel? What could have possibly happened to her?"

Look at the full cover below.

Watch the full trailer for Maleficent which features Lana Del Rey's haunting rendition of 'Once Upon A Dream' as part of the soundtrack.

Maleficent is out on 30 May 2014.
