Beauty and the Beast is also the biggest opening ever for a PG-rated movie, passing last year's Finding Dory.

Beauty and the Beast has recorded the seventh best opening overall in the United States and Canada. Through nostalgic costuming, cutting-edge special effects and inspired musical direction, "Beauty and the Beast" truly is a story that lasts a lifetime.

Disney was already expecting a hit weeks before Beauty hit theaters.

"Beauty and the Beast" easily outpaced the current March open record-holder, "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice", which grossed $166 million on the same weekend previous year.

The movie, which stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, was also number one in a series of foreign markets like the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico and China.

In the film, the handsome Belle is imprisoned in an enchanted castle by a fearsome Beast, who soon falls in love with her.

Next was Universal's horror film 'Get Out, ' with $13.2 million in weekend receipts. Alice in Wonderland, the 2010 live-action film directed by Tim Burton, previously held the record for a Disney live-action film based on an animated classic grossing the most in its opening weekend.

Plenty of beauties had a ball at the Family Drive-In Theatre to celebrate the opening weekend of Disney's live-action remake of the classic movie "Beauty and the Beast". It also wasn't expected to best Lucasfilm/Disney's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", which launched in December to $155 million, or take the crown for best March opening by topping "Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice", which bowed to $166 million over the March 25-27 weekend past year.

It continued with the Film Censorship Board in Malaysia requesting Disney to cut the moment from the film completely.

Logan at 3 is now the highest grossing Wolverine movie is the U.S. and with $184 million in total grosses could catch the lowest X-Men movies.

Watson was reportedly offered United States dollars three million upfront, but her profits will likely end up being considerably larger upon the film's total gross.
