Maleficent propels Angelina Jolie to top of UK box office

Monday June 2, 2014

Disney’s Maleficent has taken in £6.6 million at the UK box office over the weekend.

The live-action fairy tale starring Angelia Jolie as Maleficent has proven since the 30 May premiere to be a huge success at box offices worldwide, representing 78% of the international marketplace.

The film tells the untold story of one of Disney’s most memorable villains from the classic Sleeping Beauty.
Maleficent is portrayed by a scary and fierce Angelina Jolie and Princess Aurora is played by Elle Fanning. Angelina's daughter Vivienne also starrs in the film as the young Princess.

The enchanting film has gotten amazing feedback and stunned critics worldwide.

What has been commented on the most is the empowerment of female protagonists as seen is Disney’s latest hit success Frozen along with the message that happiness can be provided by other things than a handsome prince.

However, Angelina’s astonishing performance might be one of the last works we see from her, as she recently revealed she may retire from her acting career.
