Ahead of its release later this month, Disney today published the newest clip from the Beauty and the Beast live-action remake. This “Dinner Invitation Clip” shows the memorable sequence where Beast (Dan Stevens) reluctantly asks Belle (Emma Watson) to dinner and is being taught manners by talking houseware items.
The part where Beast puts on a forced smile was wonderful in the animated original and it’s pretty good here, too. Take a look:

Beauty and the Beast opens on March 17. It also stars Ian McKellan as Cogsworth, Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, and Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, a character not seen in the 1991 animated movie and invented for the new version. The film is directed by Twilight‘s Bill Condon.
It is expected to have a huge opening in the US, where it could make as much as $120 million for its opening weekend, according to estimates. If it can cross $100 million, that would make it one of the biggest March openings in movie history.
