Angelina as Maleficent
Angelina Jolie cast a mighty spell on the box office this past weekend. Walt Disney's Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie as the lead character, Maleficent. The movie bought in a whopping $69.4 million dollars this weekend. That does not include the $4.2 million bought in on Thursday and the total including domestic and foreign tallies is $170 million. This is the number one film of the year starring a female lead.
Angelina has been the one female star who could compare to her male counterparts when it comes to big box office numbers. To this date, Angelina's films have grossed a whopping $4.88 billion dollars and as people continue to go to see her latest flick, she will, for sure, surpass $5 billion. Why does Angelina have so much appeal? She appeals to every demographic, young, old, women, men and children. Even though she has the beauty of a goddess, she is quite relatable. She is a mother of six children, an international humanitarian, and partner to Brad Pitt. Somehow, she manages to juggle fame and all these other tasks, finding an amazing balance.
She has two projects coming up including King Fu Panda and a second Salt. Angelina has proven time and time again that she is a box office smash, but she has been hinting at retiring from acting. When that day comes, it will be a sad day in the cinema industry, for talent like hers is a beautiful and rare breed.
