It was a record breaking weekend for ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ Not surprisingly, the film did end up hitting that $170 Million Opening that Jimmy T told you was predicted this weekend. The film ended up taking in $350 Million worldwide!
That now makes it the biggest March opening ever, and one of the top 10 openings of all time. It’s also now the #1 PG Rated film opening both in North America and overseas. The film’s budget was around $160 million, and estimates show it will likely remain in the #1 position for another week or two. At least!
