Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast has just made history as it is now officially the highest-grossing movie ever released in the Philippines. A cumulative gross of *drumroll* P667.46M  was posted last April 11, its 27th day of release, beating Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War as the No.1 movie of all time in the country.

This was announced yesterday by a spokesman of Walt Disney Studios Philippines which distributed the film.

Note: The top five films in the all-time rankings were all distributed by Disney.  In third to fifth places are Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel’s Iron Man 3 and Marvel’s The Avengers. Disney owns Walt Disney Pictures, Disney-Pixar, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm (Star Wars films).

Belle (Emma Watson) comes to realize that underneath the hideous exterior of the Beast (Dan Stevens) there is the kind heart of a Prince in Disney’s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic directed by Bill Condon.

The film stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father; Josh Gad as LeFou, Gaston’s long-suffering sidekick; Ewan McGregor as Lumière, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe, the wardrobe; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Hattie Morahan as the enchantress; and Nathan Mack as Chip, the teacup; with Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
