Disney is raking in big bucks this weekend, as their live action Beauty And The Beast is generating huge preliminary numbers. Clearly, Disney is hoping to make 2017 another year north of a billion at the box office.
Industry predictors are even shocked by the numbers the new film has done so far. The tracking for Friday’s premiere is currently over $60 million, including the $16.5 million Thursday preview screenings brought in. The reselling of a Disney classic, starring Emma Watson, is looking to make somewhere between $165 and $170 MILLION for the weekend.
Batman v Superman, which premiered in 2016, currently holds the record for March with $166 million, making it very possible for Beauty And The Beast to beat this record.
