Hollywood loves a remake and so does the rest of the world… sometimes.
2017’s Beauty and the Beast made $1,009,000,000 more than the original animated film released in 1991 which made $420,521,600 (adjusted for inflation).
Tom Cruise’s 2005 War of the Worlds film made a $459,700,000 profit on the original 1953 which earned $18,909,288 at the time.
Cinderella and I Am Legend are some of the other titles on the list to make more profit than the original.
Films that didn’t quite live up to the original at the box office include Around the World in 80 Days, which was $35,000,000 less profitable than the 1956 film while Spike Lee’s Old Boy made a $24,800,000 loss on the South Korean original.
