Beauty and the Beast tops box office opening week

Beauty and the Beast has enchanted film fans on its opening weekend - taking US$350 million around the world.
The film took $170 million at North American box offices alone and broke a list of records in the process.
It had the biggest ever opening weekend for a PG-rated film, and notched up the seventh best opening overall.
The film easily outsold the rest of the top 10 combined - Kong: Skull Island was its closest competitor, taking US$28.9 million on its second weekend.    

Beauty and the Beast marks Disney's best opening for a live action remake yet - beating The Jungle Book, Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland.
