Salt (2010)

Many wouldn’t know, but Salt was initially written with Tom Cruise in mind. The script was rewritten for Angelina Jolie, and sure, the crime-thriller was worth all the effort. It earned $293.50 million and is the 5th highest-grossing film of Angie.

The Tourist (2010)

Another thriller on the list, but this time a romantic one, co-starring Johnny Depp. The film also made a lot of noise over an alleged feud between the leading stars. However, Angelina Jolie knocked it out of the park with another success in 2010. The Tourist collected $278.78 million at the worldwide box office.

Lara Craft: Tomb Raider (2001)

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider remains the highest-grossing video game adaptation. Starring Angelina in the leading role, critics weren’t the most impressed, but does it matter? Because the film went on to rake in $274.70 million worldwide, missing the #6 spot in the highest-grossing list by an inch!

Gone In 60 Seconds (2000)

Alexander (2004)

Alexander was an epic historical drama based on the life of Alexander the Great. It starred Colin Farrell, Anthony Hopkins, Rosario Dawson, and Angelina Jolie in crucial roles.

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life (2003)
