Beauty & the Beast breaks box office records for family movies

Watson was a ideal Belle and shined in her role, and Stevens managed to make a computer generated image (CGI) Beast feel believable.

The hit bodes well for an upcoming series of live-action remakes of some of Disney's previous animated successes.

Theater owner Jim Kopp said the drive-in held a similar event in 2015, when Disney released a live-action remake of "Cinderella". "The fact it set a box office record says a lot about its quality".

Internationally, Beauty and the Beast was number one pretty much everywhere, including taking in $22.8 million in the United Kingdom alone, and another $44.8 million in China!

Hezbollah and Israel fought a 34-day war along the Israel-Lebanon border in 2006 and both sides say they are prepared for another.

And last year's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was massive, too, at $166 million, but Beauty and the Beast ran right past it this year to bring home the March box office opening weekend record, too!

Starring in the new Beauty and the Beast film is a dream come true for Audra McDonald after missing out on a role in the Broadway stage musical back in 1993.

Watson was reportedly offered Dollars three million upfront, but her profits will likely end up being considerably larger upon the film's total gross. It remains to be seen just how much "Beauty and the Beast" ultimately takes in, but it appears destined to become part of the billion-dollar club.
