In the first weekend Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast invited us in as guests — AKA audience members — the film broke five records. But it turns out this record-breaking film isn’t slowing down. The second weekend of Beauty and the Beast broke even more records and the film is basically #killingit as far as the box office goes.
Have you seen it yet? The box office numbers indicate that you probably have because, after a record-breaking opening weekend, the second weekend numbers are also huge. In fact, Beauty and the Beast had the fourth largest second weekend ever. They only lost out to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World, and The Avengers. So that’s a pretty huge deal.
According to Fortune, March 2017 has been a huge month for film and hit over $1 billion for the first time ever. With huge movies like Logan and Skull Island (and of course Beauty and the Beast!), this has been an epic month for movies. After only two weekends, the Disney classic is already the 55th top grossing film of all-time and also had the fourth best 10-day domestic box office numbers ever.
Could this mean that we’ll be getting more live-action versions of our beloved classic animated Disney films? We’ve already had The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast. Mulan is scheduled for 2018. And let’s not forget the Donald Glover Lion King.
