Angelina Jolie returned to the silver screen after a near-four year absence with a homerun. Walt Disney’s Maleficent, a darker re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty story, which highlights the conflicted villain, debuted over the weekend with a marvelous $70 million in its first 3 days of release. This is the best box office debut for the actress.

Jolie’s previous best was Kung Fu Panda with $60.2 million!
