Watson was reportedly offered Dollars three million upfront, but her profits will likely end up being considerably larger upon the film's total gross. The remake also nabbed several other less notable distinctions, including the highest opening for a Disney animated to mostly-live-action conversion and seventh highest domestic opening weekend ever (just passing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and its $169 million debut in 2011).

The live action update of the 1991 animated classic scored the second biggest March debut on a global basis, coming in behind "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice's" $424.1 million launch. It's also the best opening weekend of 2017 so far. "Beauty and the Beast" follows other successful live-action Disney film remakes such as "Alice in Wonderland", "Cinderella", "Maleficent," and "The Jungle Book", which made its debut a year ago.

This will make Beauty And The Beast's opening weekend either the sixth or seventh all-time most successful, depending on whether or not it will surpass Iron Man 3's figure of $174.1 million.

The film's PG rating, mid-March release, casting, and mix of both new and classic songs helped lead to the film's big opening, Degarabedian said.

Actor Emma Watson is expected to pull in United States dollars 15 million ( Rs 100 crore approximately) for the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney classic.

Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellan, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Emma Thompson, director Bill Condon's film is out now in Disney 3D across the UK.
