Disney’s blockbuster “Beauty and the Beast” has notched $461.9 million at the worldwide box office in its first week, reports Variety.


The live-action remake took in $11.4 million in North America on Wednesday, setting an all-time record for earning the most revenue on a Wednesday in March — with $8.4 million, it’s 36% above “Passion of the Christ.” “Beauty and the Beast” has already surpassed the entire domestic run of the live-action “Cinderella,” which totaled $201 million in North America.


Internationally, “Beauty and the Beast” reeled in $21.9 million on Wednesday. It opened in France yesterday with $1.8 million, including previews with a 50% market share, representing the second-biggest opening day of 2017 in the country, behind only “Fifty Shades Darker,” and more than double that posted by “Cinderella” and “Maleficent.”
