Box Office: Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Is Still A Beast At The Box Office
comScore today announced the official worldwide weekend box office estimates for the weekend of March 26, 2017, and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is still a beast for second weekend, pulling in enough to make it the fourth biggest second weekend ever and pushing the film over $315 million in a matter of only ten days.
Added to that, Lionsgate’s arrival of Saban’s Power Rangers came in second place earning an estimated $40.5 million and demonstrated there was as yet a crowd of people for the establishment that started in the mid ’90s. Sony’s Life didn’t demonstrate a lot of it and WB’s CHiPs completed generally obviously.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast earned an expected $88.3 million, and was at top the box office for a second weekend in a row. It’s the fourth biggest second weekend of all-time and pushes the film’s total over of $315 million, one of the quickest movies to ever hit that stamp.
Beauty and the Beast is also big overseas adding an estimated $119.2 million bringing its worldwide total to $690.3 million.
comScore’s Senior Media Analyst Paul Dergarabedian commented:
“Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ posted an incredible $207.5 million this weekend to push its global total to $690.3 million. Now the #1 movie of 2017 both in North America and globally, this is the fourth consecutive Walt Disney Studios release to surpass the $600 million mark globally, following the staggering success of ‘Doctor Strange,’ ‘Moana’ and ‘Rogue One.'”
