It enchanted United Kingdom audiences to become highest-grossing three-day opening weekend of all-time for a PG movie with $22.8 million, while China opened to an estimated $44.8 million, making it the biggest ever Disney live-action opening weekend of all-time and representing a strong 67% market share. It topped the previous March opening weekend record of 166 million USA dollars set by "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" past year and also the seventh largest opening weekend ever. The sequel opened in just 5 locations, but banked $36,000 per screen, second only this weekend to Beauty and the Beast's $40,000 per screen. "Beauty and the Beast" follows other successful live-action Disney film remakes such as "Alice in Wonderland", "Cinderella", "Maleficent," and "The Jungle Book", which made its debut a year ago.
This will make Beauty And The Beast's opening weekend either the sixth or seventh all-time most successful, depending on whether or not it will surpass Iron Man 3's figure of $174.1 million.
