Maleficent, Disney’s latest live action offering, took $70million at the US box office in its opening weekend, making it Angelina Jolie’s most successful box office debut of all time.
The Sleeping Beauty story beat the weekend’s other big opening, A Million Ways To Die In The West, by a $53million margin.
“It's a unique thing,” says Dave Hollis, head of distribution for Disney. “[Angelina’s] star power transcends borders and genre.”
Angelina will return to the UK for the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict from June 10th-12th, where she will co-chair alongside Foreign Secretary William Hague, with a series of public events happening across the three days.
The Summit takes place at ExCel London.
