Beauty And The Beast, a remake of the 1991 animation, is now on track to open in the United Kingdom with a three-day haul of £18.4 million, making it the highest grossing three-day opening weekend for a PG movie ever.

Walt Disney Pictures' Beauty and the Beast grossed a dazzling $170 million domestically for the seventh-biggest debut of all-time, the #1 March debut ever (beating Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's $166 million), and the #1 PG movie debut of all time.

The domestic total exceeded what people in the industry had expected, and it broke the record for the biggest box office opening in March. At the U.S. box office, the film has taken $170m - making it the seventh-highest debut of all time, the highest March debut ever, and the number one PG movie debut of all time (surpassing Finding Dory).

Probably that we should get used to seeing a lot more live-action fairy-tale adaptations in the next few years.

Actor Emma Watson is expected to pull in Dollars 15 million ( Rs 100 crore approximately) for the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic.

Spring Break brought with it plenty of audience attention to go around, and despite Beauty and the Beast's domination, most other movies only dropped by typical amounts. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's ugly exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film, which stars Emma Watson as Belle, is another blockbuster hit for Disney's live action reboots of animated films.
