Where do you think Beauty and the Beast will top out?

Disney's live-action musical remake of Beauty and the Beast is a box office smash, and it's officially crossed the ultimate benchmark for studio tentpoles - $1 billion at the worldwide box office. At the moment - and likely only for the moment - "Beauty" is now ranked No. 29 on the list of highest-grossing films, just ahead of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" and behind "The Dark Knight".

This past weekend, Beauty and the Beast brought in another $25 million in the box office - second to The Boss Baby - bringing its USA total to $432.3 million.

FBI Reportedly Got Court Order To Monitor Trump Adviser's Communications
The original 90-day warrant has been renewed "more than once" by the FISA court, the Post report said. But he did emphasize that it was not Manafort, whom he said he'd never met or spoken with.

As of Tuesday, the live-action retelling of the animated classic "Beauty and the Beast" starring Emma Watson is now the Philippines' highest grossing movie. Beauty's success is unsurprising, considering its gargantuan opening weekend (a stunning $174 million) and continued success in its following weeks. The film has earned more than $1 billion in ticket sales and earns the top spot as a musical film.

Of course, this kind of onslaught is par for the course for Disney, which expects to dominate at the box office at this point.

"From September onwards, Netflix will become the exclusive USA pay TV home of the latest films from Disney, Marvel, Lucasfilm, and Pixar", Netflix announced previous year. James Cameron, whose films are sitting pretty in the first and second spot, probably isn't too anxious just yet.
