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.

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.
