Beauty and the Beast Remains Box Office Champ with $88 Million

Disney's live action remake of Beauty and the Beast easily held on to the top spot this weekend with $88.3 million.  Which is about a 49% drop from last weekend... a major hold for a movie with a gigantic debut.  It has already grossed $317 million domestically... and with it's worldwide total now standing at $690.3 million, Beauty and the Beast has now surpassed Logan ($566 million) to become the highest grossing movie of 2017 worldwide.  It will also most likely be the first film to cross the $1 billion mark this year.

Newcomer, Power Rangers managed a decent 2nd place finish with $40.5 million... and could prove a starting point for a franchise (we'll see next weekend, if it has any legs at all).

Other newcomers, Life ($12.6 million) and CHiPs ($7.6 million) kinda stumbled.

Also apparently, thanks to huge numbers from Logan, Kong: Skull Island, Beauty and the Beast, and to a lessor extent Power Rangers, March 2017 has become the first March in history to surpass the $1 billion mark in ticket sales.
