Disney’s Beauty and The Beast has opened to massive $63.78 million on Friday. The film has chances to challenge the all time opening record of March.
Beauty and The Beast is expected to collect $160-170 million in the first three days. The current record is being held by Batman Vs Superman which collected $166 million in the opening weekend. Though Batman v Superman has a higher opening day ($81.5 million) but it had a huge fall on Sunday as the word of mouth was on the negative side.
Beauty and The Beast will also record the highest opening of 2017 beating Logan. The holdover releases, Kong Skull Island collected $7.30 million and Logan collected $4.67 million on 2nd and 3rd Friday respectively.
