Los Angeles — Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast has continued to enchant audiences in its second weekend in theatres.

Studio estimates say the film added $88.3m to its total this weekend, down only 49% from its massive debut. The box-office juggernaut has earned $317m to date from North American theatres.

In a distant second, Lionsgate's Power Rangers opened with a strong $40.5m. The PG-13 reboot of the campy television show cost a reported $100m to produce.

Not so mighty were the totals for the two R-rated films that opened this weekend. Warner Bros.' raunchy action comedy Chips and Sony's space thriller Life failed to gain much traction.

Life earned $12.6m, while the critically derided Chips brought in $7.6m.
