Disney has no plans for a live-action Frozen remake

Box Office: 'Beauty And The Beast' Nabs Record $170M US, $350M Global Debut

Beauty and the Beast broke that box office record by $4 million and seems to have nothing but momentum moving forward with the film.

The PG movie broke all sorts of box office records on its first three days, with an impressive $18.4m in the U.S. alone, including the biggest opening weekend for a movie suggesting some parental guidance.

Irish film fans took Beauty and the Beast's invite to Be Our Guest to heart over the bank holiday when Disney's live-action remake of its animated classic took over €2.2m to set a new record for an opening three-day weekend.

It's a tale as old as time, but Beauty and the Beast's new box office record is as fresh as can be. It's the most expensive musical of all time, but if it can pass the studio's own The Lion King, it will compensate by becoming the highest grossing one, too. Beauty and the Beast can also brag about having the seventh-biggest domestic opening for any film, and the biggest outside of summer save for December 2015 opening of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, not accounting for inflation.

"As quote-unquote controversies go, this was a real tempest in a teapot", Dergarabedian said. The film debuted at number 1 in each of its 44 markets this weekend (India and two others weren't one of them).
