Power Rangers were first brought together by Zordon to protect the world from Rita Repulsa and her followers, but it seems that they couldn’t quite stave off the Beast & his army of clocks, wardrobes, and candelabras.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast could be in the second week, but that has not stopped it from piling up more box office revenues (via Variety). Emma Watson starring film pulled in another 23.5 million from 4210 theaters on Friday, and if it keeps up the impressive pace it could total out to another $90 million for the weekend film. That would place Beauty and the Beast above $300 million stateside, and over $ 500 million worldwide.
As for the Power Rangers, it did not set the world on fire with a $15 million on Friday from 3,693 cinemas. At this pace, the movie is expected to hit somewhere over $40 million for the weekend. That has to be a little unsatisfactory for the studio but still, counts as a solid release. Life also debuted this week, bringing in $4.3 million on Friday from 3,146 locations & CHIPS scored about $2.6 million from 2,464 cinemas. Life is expected to hit around $13 million once the weekend is done.
