The movie "Beauty and the Beast", created by Walt Disney Studios, started in the US with a series of records. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie earned $ 170 million during the premiere weekend, which is significantly more than previously predicted.
This is the best start in the history of cinema among projects with a PG rating, not only in North America, but also internationally. Also, "Beauty and the Beast" showed the best start in March, pushing the previous record holder - the movie "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", to the second place.
In absolute terms, this is the seventh start in the history of North American distribution, as well as the second result among movies that were released outside the summer season.
At the international box office, "Beauty and the Beast" earned another 180 million dollars, that is, the aggregate receipts of the tape reached an impressive 350 million dollars. Outside of North America, the movie grossed the most in China - $ 44.8 million, with a further $ 22 million in the UK.
Beauty and the Beast has a production budget of $ 160 million, meaning it needs to earn at least $ 400 million to pay off.
