There are usually one or two executives at every studio whose main job it is to attempt to work with the MPAA ratings board to nip here or tuck there to achieve a desired rating for each film. Kudos to whoever that person is at Disney for securing a PG rating for "Maleficent"!

Final studio numbers have come in this morning and a decent Saturday pushes Angelina Jolie and "Maleficent" to $70 million for the weekend.

I'm still waiting for several estimates to come in but it's all Disney and Angelina Jolie at the box office this weekend. Driven by its family friendly PG rating and a large take from its Imax screens, "Maleficent" easily cruised into first place this weekend, grossing an estimated $68-71 million.

So far so good for Angelina Jolie and Disney as "Maleficent" opened to a very strong $4.2 million Thursday night late show haul. That's pretty nifty for a straight PG film and bodes well for the weekend.
