Lionsgate's Power Rangers will not compete in North American distribution for Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
Power Rangers will make nearly $ 30 million on their first weekend, according to Variety's estimate of ticket sales for premieres. This is a rather weak result for a project whose production budget is estimated at $ 100 million, and the advertising budget is reaching comparable values. Naturally, there can be no talk of any kind of recoupment in the homeland with such a start, all hope is for international distribution.
With regard to "Beauty and the Beast", then this picture has every chance to earn about $ 90 million at home on the second weekend, which will easily allow it to maintain its leadership.
Another "loser" this weekend will be the fantastic movie "Live", which could start at a very modest $ 15 million. However, unlike the same "Power Rangers", this project has a rather modest budget - 58 million dollars, so it shouldn't have any problems with a return on investment worldwide.
Note that at the time of this writing, the worldwide collection of "Beauty and the Beasts" approached 450 million dollars.
