LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast" performed even better than expected in its second weekend in theaters, adding $90.4 million to its North American grosses, which now tally at $319 million.

"Beauty and the Beast" easily topped the crop of newcomers — including Lionsgate's "Power Rangers," which got off to a solid start with $40 million — and a few less successful debuts as well.
