World box office receipts of the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast" exceeded one billion dollars. Thus, the project of the Walt Disney studio became the first billionaire of 2017. Most of the amount - $ 564 million, he earned at the international box office, another 435 million - at home.
It is worth noting that the movie has not yet started in all markets. In particular, in Japan, where the positions of Walt Disney projects are traditionally strong, "Beauty and the Beast" will be released only on April 21, 2017. Outside of North America, the tape has earned the most at the time of this writing in China - $ 85 million. She raised $ 72 million in the UK. In USA, the fees of "Beauties and the Beasts" turned out to be more modest than in many European countries - only $ 14 million.
Recall that in 2016 the projects of Walt Disney and its divisions took the top five places on the list of the most successful. Four of them grossed over $ 1 billion at the box office. This trend is likely to continue in 2017, as the studio has several highly anticipated movies, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Star Wars 8: The Last Jedi ".
