‘Beauty and the Beast’ Waltzes to Record $174.8M in U.S., $357.1M Globally

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – The Disney live-action fairy tale scored one of the top 10 openings of all time and the biggest ever for a PG title, both in North America and overseas.

Be our guest, indeed.

Director Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast opened over the weekend to a monstrous $174.8 million from 4,210 theaters at the North American box office. Overseas, the female-fueled update of the classic 1991 animated musical also dazzled, earning $182.3 million for an elegant global bow of $357.1 million, according to final weekend grosses. That’s ahead of Sunday’s estimate of $170 million domestically and $350 million globally.

Either way, Beauty set a number of new records, including the biggest start ever for a PG title both in North America and abroad (last year’s Finding Dory was the previous champ domestically with $135 million). And 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. Just as impressive, the family-friendly movie bested Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) to boast the sixth-biggest domestic opening for any film, and the biggest outside of summer save for the December 2015 bow of fellow Disney blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens, not accounting for inflation.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Debuts With Estimated $63.8M on Friday

With an estimated $63.78 million, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast topped the Friday box office, on its way to a three-day currently expected to finish anywhere from $155-162 million according to industry sources. There remains a chance it could reach Batman v Superman‘s $166 million, March opening record, but it’s too early to tell if that will be the case. By comparison, Batman v Superman brought in $81.5 million on Friday.

Additionally, BH Tilt’s The Belko Experiment brought in an estimated $1.5 million on Friday and is currently headed toward a $3.6 million opening, just a bit below the studio’s hoped for $4 million. And, TriStar’s limited release of T2 Trainspotting into four theaters resulted in an estimated $64,000 on Friday and is looking at a weekend around $170K-200K.
