Weekend Box Office: ‘Coco’ Leading Quiet Weekend With $27M


The post-Thanksgiving box office is historically quiet, and the pattern continues.  There isn’t a new movie opening nationwide as Hollywood studios prepare for the Christmas onslaught, meaning Disney and Pixar’s Coco is easily winning the weekend with a projected $27 million-$28 million as it jumps the $100-million mark domestically.


Coco, earning 6.3 million on Friday, looks to fall a mere 46 percent in in its second weekend.


Among other holdovers, Justice League, Wonder and Murder on the Orient Express are staying high up on the chart.


There are two high-profile openings at the specialty box office — Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water and James Franco’s The Disaster Artist, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,  (Fox Searchlight) and Lady Bird.  (A24) expand into more than 1,000 theaters.
