Huge Weekend for Beauty & The Beast

March 20, 2017

Like most of you I saw the new live-action Beauty and the Beast this past weekend. My wife & I loved this movie. It's Disney at its best. Apparently the rest of the country liked it too because Beauty and the Beast just had the biggest opening weekend of all time in the month of March. Here's a little historical persective: 

- Beauty and the Beast ranks 7th all time in biggest opening weekends (best ever in the month of March at $170M) 

- This is Emma Watson's 3rd Top 25 Biggest Opening Weekend ever (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1 & 2 both rank in the top 25. BATB is her best opening ever). 

- Beauty and the Beast is Disney's 10th movie to rank amongst the Top 25 Biggest Opening Weekends ever.

- Disney has had 4 of the Top 5 Biggest Opening Weekends ever at the box office with Iron Man 3, Captain America: Civil War, both Avengers movies,&  Star Wars: The Force Awakens all ranking in the top 5 all time. The Force Awakens holds the all time record at $247.96M.
