But with Beauty and the Beast coming out today, it seems kids prefer another princess. Beauty and the Beast's performance last night also made it the second biggest opening for a PG movie and the third biggest March "preview" ever, trailing behind Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Hunger Games. Those films went on to earn $166 million and $152 million, respectively. Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen, and Stanley Tucci are all great in a movie that jumps off the screen with a sense of pure joy. And we're so excited, we nearly ditched work to go see it. Alan Menken, who wrote the original songs with Howard Ashman, provided the score and wrote three new songs with Tim Rice. If you're O.G. fans like us, you've have already dusted off your vintage VHS tape of the classic animated film and sang along to Celine Dion's powerful 1991 rendition of "Beauty and the Beast".

Russian security officers charged in Yahoo hack
They allegedly targeted Yahoo accounts of Russian and USA government officials, as well as Russian journalists. Belan escaped arrest in Europe by fleeing to Russian Federation before he could extradited, the report says.

While the actress ably discusses the don't-give-up feminist spirit that she brought to the character of Belle in Beauty and the Beast, the true draw of this interview ("the highlight of my press tour, without a doubt") is the sight of Watson fawning over her playful companions. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's disgusting exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
