How'd That Homophobic 'Beauty and the Beast' Boycott Work Out?

"Beauty and the Beast", the studio's latest live-action update of a cartoon classic, waltzed its way to a towering $170 million debut this weekend, setting a new record for a March opening and solidifying the Mouse House's status as the dominant player in the film business.

That total also represents the biggest March opening ever, topping last year's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" ($166 million).

Instead of being a casualty of the writers, Belle's mother in Beauty and the Beast has a looming presence over the entire film.

"Beauty and the Beast" represents another part of Disney's branded strategy.

The wages of Watson's "Beauty and the Beast" male costars - Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Josh Gad - have not yet been revealed. That's not just inching over the finish line; that's blowing by it. $174.75 also puts Beauty and the Beast 6th all time when it comes to domestic opening weekends.

Remember when conservatives were so outraged over that gay character in Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast" remake that they urged other good Christians to skip it in theaters this weekend? While that means not only is Emma Watson certifiably bankable, but so is a Disney live-action remake.

The man put the ambulance into reverse, striking Arroyo, who fell and got caught beneath the wheels, police said. Arroyo, a 14-year FDNY veteran, is seen being crushed by the ambulance in a video posted on social media.

The live-action movie recreates some of the scenes from Disney's 1991 animated film shot for shot.

It continued with the Film Censorship Board in Malaysia requesting Disney to cut the moment from the film completely. "She's the only Disney princess who actually isn't a princess". The King Kong relaunch has thus far earned $110.1 million domestically. Four of its movie releases, and four of the biggest box office releases of 2016, each surpassed the $1 billion mark: Finding Dory, Zootopia, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and Captain America: Civil War.

The sleeper hit Get Out placed #4 with $13.2-M in its fourth framefor a domestic total of $133.1-M, and a global take of $136-M for Universal, a unit of Comcast Corp (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Blumhouse.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this Art of Coloring: Beauty and the Beast collection of coloring pages.

"Mulan is clearly an empowered-female story but we can also do something new in this reimagining, make it a little more muscular, stronger, with touch of Ridley Scott", Bailey told Vulture.
