Box office: Coco stays on top during a week with no new wide releases

coco

With no new wide releases, it was a fairly uneventful weekend at the box office this week.

Coco, which ruled the box office for a second straight week, had one of the steeper second-weekend slides for a Pixar film, grossing an estimated $26.1 million, or 48.6% less than it made last weekend (which, to be fair, was the American Thanksgiving).

Here is how Coco’s second-weekend gross compares to that of other Pixar films:

  1. 2016 — Finding Dory — $72.3 million
  2. 2010 — Toy Story 3 — $59.3 million
  3. 2015 — Inside Out — $52.3 million
  4. 2004 — The Incredibles — $50.3 million
  5. 2003 — Finding Nemo — $46.6 million
  6. 2013 — Monsters University — $45.6 million
  7. 2001 — Monsters, Inc. — $45.6 million
  8. 2009 — Up — $44.1 million
  9. 2012 — Brave — $34.1 million
  10. 2006 — Cars — $33.7 million
  11. 2008 — WALL-E — $32.5 million
  12. 2007 — Ratatouille — $29.0 million
  13. 1999 — Toy Story 2 — $27.8 million
  14. 2011 — Cars 2 — $26.3 million
  15. 2017 — Coco — $26.1 million
  16. 2017 — Cars 3 — $24.1 million

  18. 1998 — A Bug’s Life — $17.2 million
  19. 2015 — The Good Dinosaur — $15.3 million

.
And here is how its second-week percentage drop compares to that of other Pixar films:

  1. 2001 — Monsters, Inc. — 27.2%
  2. 2004 — The Incredibles — 28.7%
  3. 1995 — Toy Story — 30.8%
  4. 2003 — Finding Nemo — 33.7%
  5. 2009 — Up — 35.2%
  6. 2007 — Ratatouille — 38.3%
  7. 2015 — Inside Out — 42.1%
  8. 2006 — Cars — 43.9%
  9. 2013 — Monsters University — 44.7%

  16. 1999 — Toy Story 2 — 51.6%
  17. 2017 — Cars 3 — 55.2%
  18. 2011 — Cars 2 — 60.3%
  19. 2015 — The Good Dinosaur — 60.9%

With $108.7 million in the till so far, Coco is also trailing behind recent non-Pixar Disney Thanksgiving releases like 2013’s Frozen ($134.3 million after two weekends in wide release) and last year’s Moana ($119.8 million after two weekends).

Coco has earned another $171.3 million overseas, for a global total of $280 million.

Meanwhile, Lady Bird and Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri both expanded to over 1,000 theatres and grossed about $4.5 million each, bringing their totals to $17.1 million after five weeks and $13.7 million after four weeks, respectively.

And The Star, which tells the story of the first Christmas from the animals’ point of view, earned an estimated $4 million in its third week, thereby ranking 9th for the week and raising its total domestic gross to $27.3 million. (The overseas figures are not in for this week yet, but The Star had earned another $1.8 million overseas as of last week.)

The Star already had the tenth-best first weekend and the ninth-best second weekend of any “faith-based” film, and this week it may have the tenth-best second weekend:

  1. 2004 — The Passion of the Christ — $32.1 million
  2. 2014 — Heaven Is for Real — $8.6 million
  3. 2015 — War Room — $7.77 million
  4. 2014 — God’s Not Dead — $7.76 million
  5. 2016 — Miracles from Heaven — $7.3 million
  6. 2017 — The Shack — $6.0 million
  7. 2014 — Son of God — $5.5 million
  8. 2011 — Soul Surfer — $5.4 million
  9. 2006 — The Nativity Story — $4.7 million
  10. 2017 — The Star — $4.0 million
  11. 2016 — Risen — $3.9 million
  12. 2002 — Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie — $3.9 million
