Box Office: Angelina Jolie’s ‘Maleficent’ Conjures $24M Friday

Angelina Jolie’s return to the silver screen is looking to be one of her very biggest hits ever. Walt Disney’s Maleficent, a darker re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty story with the emphasis on its conflicted villain, debuted yesterday with $24.25 million. That sum included $4.2m in Thursday showings. This is right in line with the $24m opening day for Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, although that March, 2013 debut had far fewer kids out of school for the Friday opening. It’s obviously smaller than the $41m Friday debut for Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland back in March 2010, but absolutely no one was expecting similar numbers for the Jolie vehicle.
