  • 'Beauty and the Beast' 3D returns

    Disney's 3D re-release of classic toon Beauty and the Beast took the No. 2 position on Friday, grossing $5.6 million for a projected four-day opening of $26 million. That number coud be revised upwards depending upon traffic on Saturday.

    Beauty and the Beast will come much closer than anticipated to the $30 million debut of The Lion King when re-released in 3D last year. Heading into the weekend, tracking suggested that both Beauty and Contrabandwould only open in the mid to high teens.

    Contraband and Disney's 3D re-release of Beauty and the Beast are both overperforming, helping to boost total box office revenues slightly above last year's levels.

    Beauty and the Beast, coming in No. 2, is anticipating a four day gross of $24.7 million. Its three day gross is $18.5 million, already the best January opening for an animated film. Hoodwinked! was the previous record-holder, grossing $16.9 million over the four-day MLK weekend in 2006.

      ...Disney's 3D re-release of Beauty and the Beast also posted solid numbers in a good sign for the fledgling re-release business.

      Beauty and the Beast earned $23.5 million for the four-day weekend, making it the best January opening for an animated film. Hoodwinked! was the previous record-holder, grossing $16.9 million over the four-day MLK weekend in 2006.

      Both films overperformed, helping to boost domestic box office revenues 2 percent to 4 percent over last year.
      Beauty and the Beast came closer than anticipated to the $30 million debut of The Lion King when re-released in 3D last year. Heading into the weekend, tracking suggested that both Beauty and Contrabandwould only open in the mid to high teens.

      "This affirms that The Lion King re-release wasn't a one time anomaly," says Disney executive vice president of distribution Dave Hollis, whose studio is banking heavily on re-releases. "The re-issue business, as long as we're careful, is one that can be a meaningful business."

        I saw it a week after it opened. I'm generally not a fan of 3D movies, so I didn't think I'd enjoy it, but I truly did. The 3D rendering was just right. Not to much, not to little. I thought they did a fantastic job.
