Update: Just shy of four weeks on general release, and the film has brought in $1 Billion Dollars worldwide.
Fast and Furious 8 is to reach a very rapid billion dollars also!
By the way, Beauty and the Beast features a nice little performance from child actor Nathan Mack – who plays Chip in the movie. In fact I've been very impressed by a number of performances from child actors this year. Moonlight has memorable performances from child actors (Alex Hibbert and Ashton Sanders) as does my other two favourite films of the year so far: Lion and Logan. In the engaging and moving true story Lion, the first part of the movie is dominated by an impressive debut performance from new discovery Sunny Pawar – who plays the lead character Saroo as a boy. He pretty much carries the first half of the movie all by himself. Similarly, Logan has a brilliant and utterly convincing performance from actress Dafne Keen – also in her first film (having previously only appeared in the Anglo-Spanish TV drama The Refugees). In this great X-Men spin-off, she plays a girl named Laura, who turns out to be a mutant similar to Wolverine. These films are both wonderful – and so are the performances of these youngsters.
Moviegoers might also look out for such films as: Lowriders, Baahubali - The Conclusion, and Mad Max: Fury Road (Chrome Edition).
