From a distance, Maleficent seems like Disney’s most daring film.

粗略看来,《沉睡魔咒》似乎是迪士尼影业最大胆的尝试。


The company, after all, made its fortune from squeaky-voiced rodents and winsome princesses, so it’s quite a departure to take the nightmare-inducing antagonist from Sleeping Beauty and turn her into a misunderstood heroine.

毕竟,迪士尼是靠各种萌萌的小白鼠和迷人的公主发家的,将那些噩梦般的角色——包括 《睡美人》里的反派,塑造成被误解的女英雄,跟原来打造的影片类型差得比较远。


Look a bit closer, though, and it’s clear that the company is actually following a significant trend.

用心观察后发现,尽管(差距很大),迪士尼的这些举动很明显都是紧跟行业趋势而变化的。

Meanwhile, three cartoons (Megamind, and Despicable Me 1 and 2) have had a supervillain as their leading man.

与此同时,三部卡通影片(《超级大坏蛋》,《神偷奶爸1》,《神偷奶爸2》)都将一个超级大反派作为影片的主角。

《海扁王》和《刺客联盟》的作者马克·米勒,还将另一部描写超级大反派涅墨西斯的图形小说(算漫画么?改编成了剧本,目前该剧正在被拍成电影。

 

And the makers of the Spider-Man movies are planning two separate spin-offs dealing with Spider-Man’s arch-enemies, The Sinister Six and Venom.
