Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast performed even better than expected in its second weekend in theatres, adding $90.4 million to its North American grosses, which now tally at $319 million.
In addition to its domestic performance, Beauty and the Beast added an estimated $119.2 million overseas bringing its worldwide total to $690.3 million. This is the fourth consecutive Walt Disney Studios release to pass the $600M mark globally, following Doctor Strange, Moana and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film’s performance helps push Disney’s global total for the year to $1.3 billion, reports Box Office Mojo.
Beauty and the Beast easily topped the crop of newcomers - including Lionsgate’s Power Rangers, which got off to a solid start with $40 million - and a few less successful debuts as well.
The sci-fi thriller Life, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds opened in fourth place, behind Kong: Skull Island, with a middling $12.5 million, while the big screen take on CHIPS only managed to bring in $7.7 million in its first weekend in theatres for a seventh place start.
