Angelina Jolie has starred in a number of popular movies over the years, but none enjoyed a more successful first weekend than her newly released retelling of the Sleeping Beauty tale.
While reviews for Maleficent were mixed at best, the movie pulled in $70 million domestically and over $100 mill overseas to give Angelina her biggest opening to date.
Analysts credit the film's female-based marketing campaign, and early reports indicate that Maleficent's audience was over 60% women.
The movie marked the big screen debut of Angelina's daughter Vivienne, who played a younger version of Elle Fanning's Aurora. Now that she's proven to be box office gold, will little Viv start popping up in all of Angie's films?
