Coco didn’t have a problem repeating as box office champion this weekend as we saw no new wide releases open. The animated film saw a 49% drop during its second weekend and brought in $26.1 million.
Coco now has grossed over $100 million domestically after only 12 days of release. The film also did well at the international box office and now stands with a worldwide box office of $280 million.
The rest of the top five stayed the same as Justice League repeated at second place with $16.6 million and is now closing in on $200 million domestically. I think it’s going to be a struggle for this film to try and reach Man of Steel’s domestic gross of $291 million.
Wonder came in third place with $12.5 million and is approaching $90 million domestically. The film expanded its international market and the worldwide gross has reached $100 million.
Thor: Ragnarok brought in $9.7 million to pass $290 million domestically. Once the film passed $300 million, it will become the 10th film in the MCU to gross at least $300 million domestically.
Daddy’s Home 2 rounds out the top five with $7.5 million. The film passed $80 million domestically and I think the film’s final gross will finish right around $90-$95 million.
Lady Bird’s reviews have been excellent so far and the film finished in seventh place and has brought in $17 million domestically. It is the fourth largest domestic release for A24 and should increase as it expands to a wider release throughout December.
The Disaster Artist opened in a limited release and finished in twelfth place. The film brought in $1.2 million and is hoping to increase profits when the film expands to more theaters.
Coco might have a chance at a third week at number one as we only have one wide release opening. The action comedy Just Getting Started starring Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones.
