"Maleficent"

The Wicked trend of turning villainnesses into anti-heroines continues to pay off. 

Maleficent has now crossed the $600 million benchmark, becoming the fourth highest-earning film of the year so far, as well as star Angelina Jolie's highest-grossing film. It is also 2014's top non-sequel box-office success. 

In fact, the revisionist fairy tale's domestic gross of $205 million is higher than those of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 ($200 million) and Godzilla ($197 million).  

So now that we proved (once again) that audiences want to see movies about women, can we please get some more in development already?
