Movies News

Disney’s new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast is breaking records on Fandango, with more than 90% of this weekend’s ticket sales on the movie website. Directed by Bill Condon, Beauty is the fastest-selling family film in Fandango history, with more than 1,000 sold-out Fandango showtimes across the country, in big cities and small towns, from New York to L.A., and from Billings, Montana to Texarkana, Texas.

“It’s rare to see a family film opening like a superhero movie,” says Fandango managing editor Erik Davis, “but this ‘Beauty’ is a beast in ticket sales, defying expectations and then some!”
