Disney's Beauty And The Beast smashes box office records

Disney's Beauty And The Beast smashes box office records”

Jeremy Fuster of TheWrap thinks bringing together famous properties and well-known stars is a winning formula, noting that posters for "Beauty" feature the actors who portray the Beast's household objects rather than showing them as the objects they appear as in the movie.

Audience members flocked to Disney's live-action remake of the 1991 classic in record numbers.

The $160 million live-action adaptation of Beauty & The Beast just opened to $170 million in the USA alone, with an additional $180 million worldwide, which means there have been a lot of broken records.

Belle is now within striking distance of Marvel Studios' Iron Man 3, though it appears that it will fall short of the Robert Downey Jr and Shane Black film's $174 million. It also wasn't expected to best Lucasfilm/Disney's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", which launched in December to $155 million, or take the crown for best March opening by topping "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice", which bowed to $166 million over the March 25-27 weekend a year ago.

The tale as old as time has not shied away from controvery as the film has been restricted in Russian Federation to not being shown at all in countries like Malaysia, but any press is good press as Beauty and the Beast had one of the greatest openings of all time. Costing a trivial sum of $300 million gone into filming and production, analysts estimate that it should easily reach profitability, with some claims already adding evidence to the fact that this latest Disney fairy tale may have already reached that point in worldwide sales. Check out the clip above... and go see "Beauty and the Beast" in theaters now.

Disney might actually have enough money to buy the Beast's castle after this. Despite her fears, Belle befriends with the beast and learns to look to beyond his ugly exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

"Beauty and the Beast", directed by Bill Condon and starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, the picture Beauty and the Beast felled many other records, too.
