Maleficent box office magic lingers

Maleficent has made over 600 million dollars worldwide

Angelina Jolie's Maleficent magic has continued its box office rule as the film passed the 600 million US dollar mark.

Disney's live action spin-off of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, which stars the Hollywood beauty as the evil fairy Maleficent, has now made 605 million US dollars (£352.92 million) at the global box office.

Other films that have crossed the 600 million barrier in 2014 include Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and X-Men: Days Of Future Past.

Maleficent is the 20th Disney film to make over 600 million dollars globally.

The film is already the biggest live-action film of Angelina's career, surpassing Mr And Mrs Smith, which took in 478.2 million US dollars (£281.1 million) in 2005.

Maleficent also raced past Disney's live-action fairytale Oz: The Great And Powerful, which has grossed 493.3 million US dollars (£289.9 million) worldwide.
