We saw how well Coco, the latest hit from Pixar, did on its opening weekend at the U.S box office by claiming the #1 spot from Justice League and it has continued to do well on its second weekend of release. Indeed, it has retained its #1 position at the U.S. box office by making an estimated total of $26.1 million which, in turn, means that it has only dropped around 48% from its opening weekend figure. This also means that Coco now has a domestic total of $108.6 million.
Justice League Continues To Suffer At The U.S. Box Office
Clearly, the good times are continuing for Coco from a financial perspective. On the other hand, the bad times are continuing for Justice League in this regard seeing as, again, it had around a 60% drop and made a total of $16.5 million. Whereas Coco is well on its way to making money for Pixar, Justice League is going to struggle to break-even let alone be profitable. In fact, I do not believe for a second that the film will get above $700 million which is incredible to believe when you consider that Justice League was supposed to be DC’s The Avengers.
The Disaster Artist and The Shape of Water
Both The Disaster Artist and The Shape of Water had limited releases in the United States and had impressive showings which bodes well for when they receive wider releases. The Disaster Artist garnered $1.2 million from its limited release while The Shape of Water averaged a very impressive $83,000 per cinema which was around $19,000 more than the average of The Disaster Artist.
Still, even with those films and the limited release of I, Tonya to come, Coco is the favourite to retain its #1 position this coming weekend. Clearly, there is a chance for The Disaster Artist to overtake Coco due to the critical acclaim that the film is receiving and the subject nature which is the making of the cult classic The Room. We will have to wait and see what these films do before Star Wars: The Last Jedi crushes everything in its path and takes its rightful place as being the #1 film at the U.S. box office.
