Emma Watson may get Rs 100 crores for Beauty and the Beast”

The $160 million live-action adaptation of Beauty & The Beast just opened to $170 million in the US alone, with an additional $180 million worldwide, which means there have been a lot of broken records. In China, the film grossed $3.4 million on 386 screens.

Raging ape: Kong: Skull Island lagged far behind Beauty And The Beast with $28.8 million for second place in its second weekend. The company is mining classic animated tales for films with real actors and modern special effects after struggling to invent profitable original stories. A dazzling $22.8M in the United Kingdom gave BATB the highest grossing 3-day opening weekend ever for a PG title; and China opened to $44.8M for the biggest-ever Disney Live Action launch weekend.

Walt Disney Pictures' Beauty and the Beast grossed a dazzling $170 million domestically for the seventh-biggest debut of all-time, the #1 March debut ever (beating Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's $166 million), and the #1 PG movie debut of all time. It follows previous remakes such as Cinderella, Maleficent and last year's The Jungle Book. Online ticket seller Fandango said it sold out more than 1,000 "Beauty and the Beast" showings across the country, the most for a family film.

Two planes collide over big mall near Montreal
One of the planes has landed in the parking lot of the Promenades Saint-Bruno, while police say the other has landed on the roof. The cause of the accident, which happened in sunny, still skies over one of the largest malls in the area, was not yet known.

Overseas, the controversy surrounding Josh Gad's gay spin on LeFou did nothing to hamper the film's global box office total, with Disney estimating a $180 million haul to give "Beauty" a $350 million worldwide opening. BoxOfficePro was predicting $27.5 million.

After being overshadowed by a gay controversy during the past few weeks, the movie has easily exceeded box office predictions.
