Walt Disney's Beauty and the Beast fairytale grossed $ 540 million worldwide. The movie managed to achieve this result in just a week of rental. Thus, the project fully paid off and began to bring substantial profits to its creators.
Half of this amount "Beauty and the Beast" earned at home. Outside of North America, the movie has been most successful in China, where it has grossed over $ 40 million at the time of this writing. The painting earned about $ 25 million in the UK.
On the second weekend, "Beauty and the Beast" will easily retain its leadership at home. The fairy tale is expected to come in at around $ 80 million.
Recall that the key roles in the movie were played by Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Evan McGregor, Gugu Mbata-Rowe, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Kevin Kline and other actors. The release of the movie was accompanied by a scandal of moderate intensity, when it became known that it will feature the first gay character in the history of Walt Disney Studios.
In USA, distributors were forced to change their rating from 6+ to 16+. In some countries, the release of "Beauty and the Beasts" was canceled altogether.
