The Disney fairy tale becomes the actress' No. 1 live-action film; it also passes up the studio's "Oz the Great and Powerful."
Over the weekend, Maleficent raced past the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office to become Angelina Jolie's highest-grossing live-action film of all time, not accounting for inflation. Her previous best was Mr. & Mrs. Smith, which took in $478.2 million in 2005.
Maleficent, a passion project for Jolie, has enjoyed impressive staying power. In North America, the Disney title stayed in the top five in its fourth weekend, grossing $13 million for a domestic total of $186 million.
