"'Beauty and the Beast" scores big times at Box Office this weekend
Disney, a studio that has always been ruthlessly engineered to hit the comfort center of its audiences' brains, has found a new hit machine by remaking the animated classics that powered the studio for half a century and tweaking them just enough to make them worth a $15 ticket.
The $160-M tentpole is another win for Disney, where studio Chairman Alan Horn, and production chief Sean Bailey have been intent on mining the studio's classic animated vault and building a stable of live-action movies.
Talk about a beast of a debut. Her entire life, Belle has been taking care of her father in the aftermath of her mother's death.
Including Belle's mother in the narrative also allows the new Beauty and the Beast to add a new dimension to Belle and the Beast's relationship. With a budget of $4.5 million, the film is one of the year's most profitable. Later in the film, Beast allows Belle to use the atlas to return to her Parisian home, where she lived as a baby with her parents. It's trying to find more cost-efficient ways to bring smaller films to the masses. In 2012, it returned back to TV in a short-lived series on the CW.
Disney's strategy of making old animated movies into live-action remakes are paying off well. She gets him, he gets her. While promoting the film, Beauty and the Beast's director, Bill Condon, told Attitude magazine that LeFou had feelings for his handsome friend.
Jeremy Fuster of TheWrap thinks bringing together famous properties and well-known stars is a winning formula, noting that posters for "Beauty" feature the actors who portray the Beast's household objects rather than showing them as the objects they appear as in the movie. When are fairy tales, in all their live-action, remade glory going to start getting a little more in-depth than the way the flagrant display of emotions moves the audience in the moment?
