The reimagining of the1991 classic animation - starring Emma Watson as a modern day Belle and Dan Stevens as the rugged Beast - also scored the biggest opening for a PG-rating ever, both here and in the US, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
So far the film has earned a staggering $170 million at the US box office, and $350 million globally, setting an impressive five box office records in one go. The film - directed by Bill Condon - now holds the the biggest domestic and international opening of all time, leaping ahead of last year's Finding Dory.
It has also become the seventh biggest opening in history - just behind the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise - and the biggest debut for a film with a female lead, as well as being 26-year-old Watson's biggest opener to date.
Disney has set a new record for itself too - the film has become the studio's highest debuting of Disney's live-action remakes, toppling Alice in Wonderland's $116.1 million opening.
