Disney's Beauty and the Beast was only projected to make somewhere between $120-$140 millon for its domestic opening weekend, but now it is being reported that the Disney flick has made well above that range. Beauty and the Beast has made a whopping $170 million this weekend at the domestic box office. This beats the previous March record set by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million) last year. This also makes it the second highest grossing opening weekend featuring a female lead after Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Chances are that Beauty and the Beast will keep the highest grossing opening weekend of the year until Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The weekend breakdown for the Disney flick is...

Friday: $63.7 million
Saturday: $62.7 million
Sunday: $43.4 million

The Sataurday is so huge that it's the highest grossing Saturday ever just after Jurassic World ($69.6 million), Marvel's The Avengers ($69.5 million), and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($68.2 million). Experts are saying that Beauty and the Beast could even have a much larger Sunday than what is being estimated, it could go as high as $50 million and this would make its opening weekend $177 million, which would beat Iron Man 3 ($174 million). Due to its great audience reception and just the way family blockbusters work, Beauty and the Beast is projected to reach a massive $500 million domestic overall.

Overseas, the Disney flick has made $180 million, and this is without it being opened in big markets like Australia and Japan. Unfortunately, the film was banned in Russia and Malaysia for its so-called "gay controversy." Nevertheless, Beauty and the Beast is expected to make around $650-750 million overseas, which would mean a worldwide total of $1.15-1.25 billion. Have you already watched this masterpiece? Sound off below!

For those who saw Beauty and the Beast, how handsome is the Prince at the end? And does he smash Belle in beast form?

The prince is the dude from Legion if you've seen that show.
post #246 of 282
I thought dude was okay looking, almost on the older side. But, you knew it couldn't be someone too good looking because it would overshadow Watson's Belle.

Of the Disney live action remakes, Beauty and the Beast might just be the best one. I'd put it up there with Malifecent (if you would count Malifecent as a remake).

Disney's record with the live action remakes have been ok so far...

Cinderella was just ok.

I did not like the Jungle Book.

It looks to me like Disney is learning... I am really looking forward to the Aladdin and Mulan remakes now.

Man based off the trailer alone I thought Watson was a perfect cast laugh.gif she just has the Belle look from what I remember of the og movie.

I actually thought the opposite. I don't think she has the belle look at all but if she was the best fit for the role then it's all good.

Haven't seen the animated Beauty & Beast since I was in elementary school. Seen the live action yesterday it was good. I still vaguely remember the songs and it was cool how Disney made the musical parts into live action especially the dinner part with the candle dude singing lol..

Out of that era of Disney movies Aladdin was probably my favorite as a kid so looking forward to how they will do that the most.

What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?

I don't want to believe this...But this has to be a musical adaptation. Flex your muscles, Bob Iger.

Watched Beauty and the Beast last night and Disney blew me away once again with reinterpreting their classics in live action form. This might've been better than Jungle Book. I was a little upset with the casting of AWG Emma Watson as Belle but after about 30 minutes she won me over. The songs were just as catchy as they were 25+ years ago and there were some adultish jokes in there that varied from hilarious to uncomfortable. The big take away was the CGI. Beast and especially Lumière looked cool. Great great film, ready for Cruella

‘Beauty And The Beast’ Roars Past $1B At Worldwide Box Office


Continuing an enchanted dance, Disney’s Beauty And The Beast has waltzed across the $1B global box office threshold, reaching the milestone on Wednesday. The Bill Condon-helmed live-action update on 1991’s animated classic has been in worldwide release since March 16, riding to the $1B point in 29 days. BATB is the 14th movie for the Mouse to reach the number. It still has Japan to come on April 21, meaning this beauty has still has plenty of rose petals ahead.
