Coco is the latest film made by Pixar that has been receiving critical acclaim. The film currently has a 94% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and praise has been levelled at its animation, storytelling, music and its ability to pay homage and be respectful towards Mexican culture. As a result, you would expect that a film such as Coco would hugely appeal to this particular demographic. Additionally, because the first release of this film would be in Mexico, it was safe to assume that it would be a huge hit from a box office perspective.

Coco Sets A New Record

This is absolutely the case. Coco has gone on to become the top film in Mexico in terms of box office as measured in local currency. Indeed, the film accrued 824 million pesos ($43.1 million) in its first nineteen days of release and it is set to surpass the money that was earned by The Avengers during its entire run in Mexico.

This is a huge achievement for a film that is still yet to be released in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia and China. Certainly, the results in Mexico bode extremely well for its worldwide release and Pixar could, yet again, have another film that does well both critically and commercially.

How Will Coco Impact The U.S. Box Office?

For me, Coco is an absolute lock to be #1 at the U.S. box office this weekend. It is a family film that is being released on Thanksgiving weekend so I imagine that a lot of families will take their children to see Coco. I would not at all be surprised if this film makes close to $100 million at the U.S box office on its opening weekend.

 

With this in mind, I also feel that this will have a detrimental impact on how Justice League will perform on its second weekend at the box office. This will just be more bad news for Warner Bros. after the hugely disappointing performance Justice League had on its opening weekend.
