It was widely expected that Coco was going to do very well on its opening weekend at the U.S box office. I mentioned in one of my previous articles that the film has done extraordinarily well in Mexico. Moreover, because it is a Pixar film opening on Thanksgiving weekend, Coco was bound to attract a lot of families across the United States to see a film that is another critical success for Pixar. It currently holds a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and with rave reviews coming from all corners of the world of film critics/pundits, all the foundations were set for Coco to do extremely well from a financial basis in the United States.

How Did Coco Perform?

I previously said that I would not be surprised if Coco would go on to make $100 million at the U.S. box office. While Coco did fall short of that lofty figure, it had a very impressive showing nonetheless by making $71.2 million on its first weekend at the U.S. box office. It supplanted Justice League who dropped to second place and made a total of just over $40 million in its second weekend of release. Wonder, Thor: Ragnarok and Daddy’s Home 2 made up the rest of the Top 5 films at the U.S. box office.

My Thoughts On The Performance Of Coco At The U.S. Box Office

I am so pleased that Coco has done this well on its first weekend at the U.S. box office, even if my prediction that it would make $100 million did not come to pass. I am a massive fan of Pixar so I always want to see them do well on a critical and commercial basis. They have given me some of my favourite experiences as a film fan. Once Coco comes out in the United Kingdom, I cannot wait to experience Coco for myself and I can see it doing well at the U.S. box office for at least a few more weeks until Star Wars: The Last Jedi annihilates everything in its path.
