    'Beauty and the Beast' Waltzes to Record $170M in U.S., $350M Globally

    from hollywoodreporter,

    "Director Bill Condon's Beauty and the Beast opened over the weekend to a monstrous $170 million from 4,210 theaters at the North American box office. Overseas, the female-fueled update of the classic 1991 animated musical also dazzled, earning $180 million for an elegant global bow of $350 million."

    It's a shame that Disney is having so much trouble releasing movies that make money!

    The US Treasury needs to hire them. They print money much faster than the government and don't owe anyone when they're done!

    As for the movie...I'll see it this week when our daughter comes home from school for a few days. We've all been looking forward to seeing it together.

    I just came back.. My kids wanted to see it.

    We all enjoyed it.

    They followed exactly the same story/songs/lines of the animated original.

    They did do some changes for one of the characters to make it more PC..

    Overall, we all enjoyed it.

    Did not see the 3d version and to be honest, I don't think 3D would have done anything from what I could tell.

    I'll give it a spin when it hits Blu-ray.

    I think that Emma Watson as Belle was a smart choice. She's so darned cute.

    Watson is adorable. She backed out of La La Land in order to make this movie. Emma Stone was happy about that!

    Saw it in a Dolby Cinema. Fantastic! My wife's favorite. They spared no expense in making this. Sets, costumes, CGI.

    Would love to hear Dave's opinion if he watches it in a Dolby Cinema on the Be Our Guest sequence. Amazing colors. Lots of dark scenes in the film as well and the detail held up beautifully.

    All of the performances were great.

    Closest Dolby Cinema is either an airplane ride away or 2 hours through traffic hell. I'll be seeing this in a "regular" theater!
