News from around the web

Disney have done well in recent years with their live action versions of classic cartoons and this week the best of all animations gets the treatment and Beauty and The Beast opens to a massive debut.

Taking nearly £20 million on its first weekend of release it is the 8th top weekend in the UK of all time and is the highest opening outside of a franchise film.

It will be interesting to see if this is just that the animation is considered one of Disneys ultimate classics, or if the public are simply enjoying these live conversions.

Its hard comparing this to the 1992 original as its been 25 years but that film took £8.4 million on its opening, and took £20 million in total.

Adjusting for inflation the 1992's opening would be about £22 million with a total of about £52 million, potentially very similar to this live action remake.

Falling to number 2 this week is Kong: Skull Island, a £2.7 million second weekend brigs the films total to £11 million, the film is running just above its stablemate Godzilla.

Also new this week is American horror hit Get Out which lands at number 3 this week with a better than expected £2.1 million.

Longest running film on the UK box office this week is Lion starring Dev Patel which has now been around for 9 weeks while the highest total grossing movie is Sing which is still at 7 and has now grossed £28 million.
