'Coco' Remains On Top Of 'Justice League' At The Box Office

Coco continues to dominate the box office this weekend, earning in its second weekend at the box office nearly double what Justice League took in during its third weekend.

Disney-Pixar’s Coco is opening December with a $28 million second frame earned from 3,987 locations. This follows the film’s opening weekend, which was the fourth-highest Thanksgiving opening weekend of all time following three previous Disney releases: Frozen with $93 million in 2013, Moana with $81 million in 2016, and Toy Story 2 with $80 million in 1999.

Inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead holiday, the film follows a boy named Miguel who is transported to the land of the dead and seeks out his great-great-grandfather, who is a legendary musician. The film’s box office total should rise to about $110 million by the end of the weekend.

Justice League will likely fall just shy of reaching $200 million after three weekends at the box office, with a box office total of about $195 million. The film brings Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg together on the big for the first time to defend Earth against the alien conqueror Steppenwolf.

Justice League is currently the eleventh-highest grossing movie of 2017 and the lowest-performing DC Extended Universe film so far. By comparison, Wonder Woman had already earned $233.8 million after two weeks in June and Suicide Squad had earned $241.5 after two weeks in August 2016.

Thor: Ragnarok is expected to earn another $9.36 million in its fifth weekend at the box office, bringing Marvel’s latest film to a new domestic box office total of $290 million. Thor: Ragnarok is Marvel’s highest-grossing Thor movie and the sixth-highest grossing film at the domestic box office in 2017. The film has also passed $800 million worldwide, making it the seventh Marvel Studios film so far to achieve that milestone and the third Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to do so this year.
