October is traditionally the month for all things spooky, scary, ghastly and gory to hit cinemas. In other words, it's the ideal time for the new 'Maleficent' film to drop.

'Maleficent: Mistress of Evil' is the follow-up to 2014's 'Maleficent'. The story continues where it left off, exploring the "complex relationship" between the horned fairy and the now soon-to-be-queen Aurora.

It'll see Angelina Jolie return as the titular Maleficent, and Elle Fanning as Princess Aurora, with Michelle Pfeiffer as Queen Ingrith.

It hits cinemas on October 18th.
