Walt Disney Animation Studios' magical classic "Beauty and the Beast" returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O'Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who's taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle's enchanted staff–a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others–and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast's exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.
Featuring unforgettable music by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, and an enormously talented vocal ensemble, "Beauty and the Beast" was the first animated feature to receive a Best Picture nomination from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Box Office: Opening weekend: $17.75 mil. (2625 theaters) |

I was very pessimistic about the Lion King in 3D, and was aamezd by the results. One of the best 3D experiences I've had, and I'm not usually a big fan of 3D. It looks phenomenal on BluRay 3D.Now, the really interesting thing here is that the movie is already available on blu ray for sale. If it does really well in cinemas, this might be a very interesting learning that cinema really is about the experience more than it is about the exclusivity. And this is something the industry needs to get data and empirical examples on.

They should have stuck with the tlrareis they allready had made back when the 3D release was originally scheduled for valentines weekend 2010,before it was shelved by Rich Ross and then just scheduled for a 3D BD release this year. the sad thing about them releasing this in January now, is that the 3D bluray will have been in homes for 3 months allready. what they should have done when they saw the amount of money the el cap screenings were bringing in was push back the 3D Bluray release to first week of December and did a 2 week theatrical re release in November (its 20th anniversary)
