With Disney’s blockbuster “Beauty and the Beast” dazzling the box office for a second straight week, its star Emma Watson looks on

course to become Hollywood’s highest-earning female star of 2017.

The movie raked in $90.4 million over the weekend, according to industry data released on Monday. The film’s cumulative North American take of $319 million is the best ever for a March release, according to industry experts, helping propel domestic box offices for March past $1 billion, the most ever for the month.

The movie, starring Watson of Harry Potter fame as Belle and Dan Stevens from the “Downton Abbey” series as the Beast, has shown drawing power usually more typical of a superhero blockbuster than of PG-rated family fare.

Watson was previously the highest-earning actress in 2010. Jennifer Lawrence has been the biggest-earner since 2015 but now Watson could retake top spot this year after reportedly earning $2 million for “Beauty and the Beast.” She also will receive a percentage of the movie’s global takings.
