‘Beauty and the Beast’ enchants audiences for another week, with ‘Power Ranger’ debuting in second place


Beauty and the Beast continued to dominate the box office this week.

Disney’s live-action version of the animated classic stayed at the top of the charts for a second week, raking in $88.3 million, bringing its worldwide total to $690 million.


Debuting in second place was the Lionsgate film Saban’s Power Rangers, which made $40.5 million.

The action-superhero film is a reboot based on the characters from the 1990s sitcom Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. It goes back to it origins and shows how five classmates of Angel Grove High School, Jason Scott/Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery), Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger (Naomi Scott), Billy Cranston/Blue Ranger (RJ Cyler), Trini Kwan/Yellow Ranger (Becky G) and Zack Taylor/Black Ranger (Ludi Lin), come together with the help of Zordon (Bryan Cranston) and Alpha 5 (Bill Hader) and discover their superhero identities in order to defeat the evil Rita Repula (Elizabeth Banks) and Goldar.

Given that this reboot is a modern take of the beloved 90s sitcom, it received pretty decent reviews. And to top it off, Amy Jo Johnson and Jason David Frank who portrayed Kimberly Hart/Pink Ranger and Tommy Oliver/Green and White Ranger, respectively in the TV show, made cameo appearances in the film.
