World box office receipts of the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast" exceeded $ 1.1 billion. This allowed the Walt Disney movie to enter the top twenty highest-grossing movie projects and take 17th place in it, pushing aside the movie adaptation of DC comics "The Dark Knight 2: The Legend Rises."
Nearly $ 500 million of this amount the picture has earned more than 600 million in North America and beyond. In order to enter the top ten, the project needs to earn another $ 100 million. "Beauty and the Beast" has already appeared on all major movie markets, and such an achievement seems unlikely. However, it should be noted that the movie has already earned significantly more than the most optimistic forecasts promised it.
"Beauty and the Beast" was another successful attempt by Walt Disney Studios to make a feature movie based on one of their animated masterpieces. One of the next experiments in this area will be the movie "Aladdin", in which the role of the Genie can be played by the popular Hollywood actor Will Smith. The shooting schedule for this picture is still unknown. It will probably be released in 2019.
