“Beast” Kills “Rangers” At The Box-Office

Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” topped the box-office for the second weekend in a row, adding a further $88.3 million to its domestic total, and another $119 million overseas.

The film now stands at $690.3 million worldwide after ten days, easily the top movie of 2017 domestically and globally. Its current domestic total is the fourth-largest ten-day total for any film, and it has had the fourth-largest second weekend of all-time.

Lionsgate reboot of the “Power Rangers” came in a very respectable second though, the film taking in a better than expected $40.5 million domestically on its opening weekend and receiving an ‘A’ CinemaScore which suggests solid repeat business. Overseas though, audiences weren’t so interested with the film scoring just $18.7 million.

“Kong: Skull Island” came in third with a further $14.4 million adding to its $133.5 million domestic total. The $58 million sci-fi thriller “Life” opened in fourth with $12.6 million, but audiences weren’t happy with the film nabbing a C+ CinemaScore. “Logan” closed out the top five with a further $10.1 million adding to its $201.5 million total.

No-one had much interest in “CHIPS” which opened to just $7.6 million, same for the Woody Harrelson-led arthouse comedy “Wilson” which earned just $330,000 from over three hundred screens.
