By   /   Mar 16, 2015

Fairytales and Disney do wonders together and they have outdone themselves at the Box Office yet again.

Disney’s live-action Cinderella opened this weekend and it grossed more than $70 Million in just first three days.

The movie premiered In thirty-one markets with more than half of the top ten overseas areas waiting in line. The feature hit 358 IMAX screens in 3,845 localities.

Cinderella broke Box Office record for Maleficent that grossed around $69.4 million and it had more reasons to be successful. First, The appearance of Angelina Jolie and second the upgrade of 3-D. It is no surprise that Disney is still sticking with their plans of generating live-action, fairytale, modern woman stories.

The movie is directed by Kenneth Branagh. Lily James plays Cinderella in the movie along with Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter and the oh-so-awesome costumes and set.

There are two possible reasons for Cinderella’s massive success. First would be the amalgamation of the Modern Woman with classic fairytale. And the second would be the Family-Friendly movie, which you can enjoy with your kids without the fear of exposing them to explicit content.

If we add up the numbers, it is safe to say that they have already covered the expenses and the movie would make huge profits.

Fairytales and Superheroes movies seem to be benefitting Disney and they have long plans for continuing to give its audiences a lot of magic in the coming years.

The Mouse House, featuring Johnny Depp releases next year, Alice in Wonderland set for Memorial Day and with Beauty and The Beast gone into production. Along with Pixar films, Marvel and Star Wars… Whoa, these may sum some up into large numbers.
