‘Beauty and the Beast’ Named Highest March Opening Film of All Time
Director Bill Condon‘s Beauty and the Beast takes the #1 spot at the weekend box office with $170 million in North America alone! Overseas, the film managed to pull in $180 million, bringing it’s debut weekend total to $350 million.
The enchanting musical film also managed to set a few new records, including the biggest start ever for a PG title both in North America and abroad, beating 2016’s Finding Dory, which earned $135 million domestically. Equally, it surpassed the $166 million domestic debut of last year’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to land the top March opening of all time.
I went to see the film myself on Friday night and I absolutely loved it. It was well acted, the visual effects were astounding and it didn’t quite stray away from the original Disney version, which was kind of disappointment, but understandable as I’m sure they really didn’t want to mess it up for original fans.
I was slightly worried that Josh Gad‘s LeFou being the first gay Disney character would be an issue, but it was literally a blink and you’ll miss it moment, though in the original, it’s very clear that LeFou is more than Gaston‘s sidekick, he even seems to have a crush on him there as well.
If I could, I would totally go to the theater to see it again, but if I don’t make it, I will be purchasing it on DVD!
