The retelling of a classic fairytale has now rewritten the record books! Disney's live-action “Beauty and the Beast” is now officially the biggest-grossing movie ever released in the Philippines.
The romantic, fantasy musical posted a cumulative gross of a jolting P667.46-M yesterday, its 27th day of release, and effectively overtaking Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” as the No.1 movie of all-time in the country.
This was announced today by a spokesman of Walt Disney Studios Philippines which distributed the film. (It’s worth noting that the top five films in the all-time rankings were all distributed by Disney. In third to fifth places are Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” and Marvel’s “The Avengers.”)
Disney owns Walt Disney Pictures, Disney-Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm (Star Wars films).
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is still playing in cinemas across the Philippines. Like Beauty and the Beast on Facebook, WaltDisneyStudiosPH; follow us on Twitter, @disney_phil; follow us on Instagram, @disney.ph and use the hashtag #BeOurGuestPH.
