NEW YORK (AP) - It's a huge opening for Disney's live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast."
With an estimated $170 million in North American ticket sales, "Beauty" blew past the previous record-holder for G- or PG-rated releases, last year's "Finding Dory."
Last week's top film, Warner Bros.' "Kong: Skull Island," slid to second place with $28.9 million. The "X-Men" spinoff "Logan" was No. 3 with $17.5 million in its third week.
