Weekend Box-Office: COCO Repeats at #1


Simple, straightforward news for a simple week. As no new releases were released over the weekend, Pixar and Disney's "Coco" had enough room to score a second weekend at the top of the charts. Meanwhile, it's the limited releases that really impress.

Find out more about the weekend box office after the jump.

The week after Thanksgiving is supposed to be slow, so there isn't much surprise in the way the Top 10 turned out. "Coco" claimed the top spot once again with $26.1 million grossed over the weekend. The film's domestic total has reached $108.6 million while overseas it has grossed $171.3 million, China once again being the star with $44.2 million, particularly as the film opened there with just $17.8 million last week.

In second place we have the lumbering behemoth "Justice League" with $16.5 million after another steep 59.7% drop. The DC Comics adaptation has grossed $197.3 million domestically and another $370.1 million overseas, all against a reported $300 million budget.

The drama "Wonder" finished in third place with $12.5 million, pushing its domestic tally to a fantastic $88 million versus a $20 million budget. It also opened overseas where it has raked in $12.2 million, so far.

In fourth place, Marvel's "Thor: Ragnarok" is fast approaching $300 million after grossing $9.6 million over the weekend. Internationally it has grossed $525 million since its release.

The Top 5 is rounded up by the comedy sequel "Daddy's Home 2" with $7.5 million. The film is slowly closing in on the $100 million milestone, while overseas it has expanded into additional markets and has reached a tally of $34 million.

Former limited release and current critical darling "Lady Bird" continues its nationwide expansion and has grossed another $1.4 million, placing seventh and bringing its domestic cume to $17 million. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" is also enjoying smooth sailing in its new wider release, finishing at #8 with $4.5 million.

The new limited releases performed well over the weekend. Guillermo del Toro's "The Shape of Water" grossed $166.8 million from just two theaters, and Woody Allen's "Wonder Wheel" brought in $140.5 from five theaters. Also, Parmount re-released James Cameron's "Titanic" and it earned $415,000 from 87 theaters.

New Wide Releases: NONE.
