  • Think Like a Man Too topped a quiet weekend at the box office, whileMaleficent earned enough money to make it the highest-grossing live-action film for star Angelina Jolie, according to Box Office Mojo.
    The sequel to 2012's Think Like a Man took in $30 million in its opening weekend, which was enough to unseat last week's No. 1 film, 22 Jump Street, which landed in second place with $29 million.

    In its fourth week in theaters, Maleficent earned $13 million, ending the weekend at No. 5. The haul brings Maleficent's worldwide total past $500 million to set a new box office record for Jolie. Her previous best was Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which earned $478.2 million worldwide.
    At No. 6 with $10.3 million was Edge of Tomorrow, followed by teen weeper The Fault in Our Stars with $8.6 million.
