Director Bill Condon's Beauty and the Beast opened over the weekend to a monstrous $174.8 million from 4,210 theaters at the North American box office. Overseas, the female-fueled update of the  classic 1991 animated musical also dazzled, earning $182.3 million for an elegant global bow of $357.1 million, according to final weekend grosses. That's ahead of Sunday's estimate of $170 million domestically and $350 million globally.

Either way, Beauty set a number of new records, including the biggest start ever for a PG title both in North America and abroad (last year's Finding Dory was the previous champ domestically with $135 million). And it surpassed the $166 million domestic debut of last year's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice to land the top March opening of all time. Just as impressive, the family-friendly movie bested Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million) to boast the sixth-biggest domestic opening for any film, and the biggest outside of summer save for the December 2015 bow of fellow Disney blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens , not accounting for inflation.

It also boasts the largest domestic opening since Marvel/Disney's Captain America: Civil War ($177 million) almost a year ago, despite the objections of some conservatives both here and abroad who decried Condon's decision to make one of the characters  gay, even if the scene is fleeting.

Music by Alan Menken

This "Tale as Old as Time" focuses on the relationship between the Beast, a young prince trapped under a hideous spell, and a beautiful young woman whom he imprisons in his castle. To become a prince again, the Beast must find a way to love and be loved. But time is running out. If lessons are not learned quickly, the Beast and his household will be doomed for all eternity.

Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature, the stage version includes all of the memorable songs written by Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, along with new material from Mr. Menken and Tim Rice. The original Broadway production ran for more than thirteen years and was nominated for nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
