Monday Morning Box Office Report: Coco Delivers Fourth Largest Thanksgiving Weekend Debut


It was another big Thanksgiving weekend for Disney as Pixar’s latest animated film Coco strummed its way to $71 million over five days and $49 million over three. That’s the fourth highest Thanksgiving debut ever, putting it behind just three other huge Disney releases: Frozen, Moana and Toy Story 2. It is currently sitting at $153 million worldwide, but with very little in the way of major releases over the next couple of weeks, it will likely have some decent legs. In second place, Justice League dropped 57% to earn another $40 million, bringing its worldwide total to $481 million. In third place, Wonder had an incredible second weekend, dropping just 19% from its impressive debut last week, while Thor: Ragnarok and Daddy’s Home 2 rounded out the top 5. Elsewhere, Roman J. Israel, Esq. made an appearance in the top 10 after an expansion and a strong turnout, pulling in $6.2 million over five days.

1. Coco — $49M
2. Justice League — $40.7M
3. Wonder — $22.3M
4. Thor: Ragnarok — $16.8M
5. Daddy’s Home 2 — $13.3M
6. Murder on the Orient Express — $13M
7. The Star — $6.9M
8. A Bad Moms Christmas — $5M
9. Roman J. Israel, Esq. — $4.5M
10. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri — $4.4M

    Are you guys planning on reviewing Wonder at all? I wasn’t going to pay attention to it but the box office, reviews and that A+ cinemascore now have me curious.

  • Sean

    We have no plans for it currently. Hoping to get to a bunch of other stuff in the coming weeks but we shall see.

  • Jake

    No worries, there are certainly a lot more interesting looking movies out right now. I am just surprised at the response it has been getting because it looked like nothing more than crappy Oscar bait.
