Final studio numbers have come in this morning and a decent Saturday pushes Angelina Jolie and "Maleficent" to $70 million for the weekend. Sadly, Saturday wasn't much of a help for "A Million Ways To Die In The West" as the Seth MacFarlane comedy western remains at $17 million and a third place finish.

Final studio numbers have come in this morning and a decent Saturday pushes Angelina Jolie and "Maleficent" to $70 million for the weekend.  Sadly, Saturday wasn't much of a help for "A Million Ways To Die In The West" as the Seth MacFarlane comedy western remains in the town jail at $17 million and a third place finish.

I'll have more of an assessment in tomorrow's weekly Hit Or Miss feature (it's essential to look at the effect the straight PG rating had on "Maleficent") so here are the weekend totals....

1.   MALEFICENT---BV---$70.0 MILLION

2.   X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST---FOX---$32.6 MILLION---64% Drop---$162 Mil Cume

3.   A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST---UNIVERSAL---$17.1 MILLION

4.   GODZILLA---WARNER BROTHERS---$12.2 MILLION---60% Drop---$174 Mil Cume

5.   BLENDED---WARNER BROTHERS---$8.4 MILLION---$41% Drop---$29 Mil Cume

6.   NEIGHBORS---UNIVERSAL---$7.7 MILLION---45% Drop---$128 Mil Cume

7.   AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2---SONY---$3.7 MILLION---51% Drop---$192 Mil Cume

8.   MILLION DOLLAR ARM---DISNEY---$3.7 MILLION---47% Drop---$28 Mil Cume

9.   CHEF---OPEN ROAD---$2.0 MILLION

10. THE OTHER WOMAN---FOX---$1.4 MILLION---62% Drop---$81 Mil Cume
