Beauty and the Beast's monster BO opening hints a sequel is coming

Beauty and the Beast's monster BO opening hints a sequel is coming

However, it looks like the predictions may have actually been too low and with sold out movie theaters and plenty of happy fans spreading the word that the film is better still than they could have predicted, Beauty and the Beast is looking to have an awesome opening weekend at the box office. And this "Beauty and the Beast" is equal parts dispiriting and enchanting: overflowing in handsome craft, but missing a spirit inside.

Beauty and The Beast is on track to become a huge blockbuster for Disney. Opening with a definitively Disney song and pacey ballroom waltz, the film doesn't spare any sense of glitz and glamour. I was five when the movie was released and between the songs, characters and fairy tale I was hooked. The film is notable not just for the fact that Emma Thompson has replaced the iconic Angela Lansbury as cursed teapot Mrs Potts, while Ewan McGregor plays a French candelabra, but that it features the first-ever openly gay Disney character. That was until a seemingly nonspecific moment, where everything just kind of...clicked. I have never seen such contempt and hostility come from a group of people before. Maybe it was the awe-inspiring theatricality of "Be Our Guest", or the pleasantly nuanced characterisation of Beast; whatever happened, the film hugely benefited from it. I am a mum ... so it changes my whole way of seeing things. I think that's a crucial difference.

We won't completely spoil the movie for you but with the help of the Beast and an enchanted book, Belle goes back in time to discover not only about her mother but how her father ended up in the poor provincial town.

Gaston, who is played by Luke Evans, is the character everyone loves to hate.

Budget office slams GOP plan
The majority of the new uninsured would be older, low-income Americans - between the ages of 50 and 64 years old - CBO predicts. GOP leaders and President Donald Trump spent much of Friday morning talking to critics of the plan.

In the animated film, Gaston attacks the Beast with a bow and arrow and then attempts to bludgeon him to death with a piece that he breaks off from the castle.

Audra McDonald told CBC News she didn't feel pressure to re-create the 1991 cartoon version. The castle in which he resides is also beautifully crafted to where its crumbling decor seems to hide a sense of the beauty that's long since passed. Much of the live-action/digital effects makeover is less lifelike than the Oscar-winning 1991 animated film: It's gained a dimension but lost a pulse. The Hollywood Reporter shared that Beauty and the Beast has already earn about $63.8 million on Friday. If the movie is able to do this it will be in rarefied company that includes only three other films, The Avengers, Jurassic World and Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Do you think that Emma Watson gave a $15 million performance?
