It's been two years since we've seen Angelina Jolie on-screen, but that was with the terrifically underwhelming 'The Tourist'. However, 2014 is has the one-two punch from Jolie in the form of 'Maleficent' and then her second directorial effort, 'Unbroken'. Unbroken is already causing plenty of Oscar buzz, but we'll have to first look at the box office potential of Maleficent. Considering that it's Jolie's first acting role in a while, there's definitely a ton of buzz surrounding the film. 
Angelina Jolie filming 'Maleficent'
 
Until now, no re-imagined fairy tale film has done catastrophically bad, even though industry analysts afraid that Maleficent might fail. However, it's a Disney film, is actually based on a well-known property [Sleeping Beauty], and stars one of the biggest movie stars in the world. How will it fail?
 
Plus, it has a great behind-the-scenes team, and the buzz around the trailers keeps building. Obviously, the film may not appeal to children as much as 2010's Alice in Wonderland did, but considering that Snow White and the Huntsman managed to do so well in a similar vein, we predict that Maleficent will do much better. For one, Jolie's a bigger star than Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart, and the story's more intriguing, especially as we focus on the villain as opposed to the 'heroine'.

Reviews from the film have yet to actually be released, but Jolie will start going on her promotional tour at the end of this month. We'll slowly start to see the buzz build, but even if the film doesn't live up to expectations stateside, it's next to impossible that the film won't do well internationally. Large-scale fantasy fare with big stars rarely fails at the overseas box office, and Maleficent will definitely follow that trend.
