'Maleficent's Sets Box Office Record For Jolie, MacFarlane's Western Flops

Angelina Jolie (photosAngelina Jolie photos) worked some magic at the weekend box office as Disney's 'Maleficent' surprised nearly everyone with its runaway $70 million debut.

The debut marked the best opening of Jolie's career and the PG-rated retelling of 'Sleeping Beauty' from the villain's perspective was a popular draw for families.

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' dropped to second place with $32.6 million in its second week in theaters and Seth MacFarlane's 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' flopped badly with only a $17.1 million weekend.

Despite its starry cast of Liam Neeson, Charlize Theron (photosCharlize Theron photos) and Amanda Seyfried (photosAmanda Seyfried photos), the R-rated Universal comedy couldn't match MacFarlane's 'Ted', which opened with $54.4 million in 2012.

The complete rundown of the weekend box office:

1. Maleficent, $70 million.
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past, $32.6 million.
3. A Million Ways to Die in the West, $17.1 million.
4. Godzilla, $12.2 million.
5. Blended, $8.4 million.
6. Neighbors, $7.7 million.
7. The Amazing Spider-Man 2, $3.8 million.
8. Million Dollar Arm, $3.7 million.
9. Chef, $2 million.
10. The Other Woman, $1.4 million.
