What do you do when a Beast comes knocking on your door to invite you to dinner?
In Emma Watson’s case, she plans her escape.
Yahoo Movies released a new clip from “Beauty and the Beast” in which Dan Stevens’ Beast angrily tries to invite Belle (Watson) to dine with him, but she’s planning her exit through the window.
After Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen) and Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson) tell the Beast to be more polite given that Belle had just lost her father and her freedom in one day, he tries knocking again — this time more gently. And he finally gets a response from Belle.
Three weeks out, the film was tracking at a huge opening of $120 million, and Fandango reported that it is selling advance tickets at the same rate as superhero films. The site also reported that it has sold more advance tickets in its first three days than any other family film, breaking the record set last year by Pixar’s “Finding Dory.”
The original film was one of the most successful movies in Disney history. It became the first animated movie to receive an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture, and remains the only one to do so prior to the Academy expanding the Best Picture nominee list in 2010.
