Coco Reigns Supreme At Box Office On A Quiet Weekend
The Shape of Water and The Disaster Artist opened big in limited release.
With no new major releases, the weekend was once again Pixar's for the taking, as Coco continued to sit at the top of the box office charts. In its second weekend, the animated film raked in $26.1 million, according to Entertainment Weekly. That brings Coco's domestic gross thus far to $108 million.
Coco easily topped Justice League, which came in second with $16.6 million. The superhero team-up movie has currently earned over $197 million domestically, with an additional $370 million worldwide.
In limited release, both Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water and James Franco's The Disaster Artist opened impressively. In only two locations, The Shape of Water earned $167,000, giving it one of the best per-theater averages of the year. Meanwhile, The Disaster Artist, which is about the making of The Room, totaled $1.2 million in 19 locations.
Woody Allen's latest film, Wonder Wheel, didn't fare as well in limited release. The Amazon Studios movie opened to $140,555 in five locations--an average of $28,111 per theater.
