Coco is on track to finish well ahead of Justice League at the North American box office this holiday weekend.
Justice League didn’t have the coming out party it was hoping for last weekend, accumulating the lowest domestic opening of any DCEU film so far.
It also looks as if the superhero flick will come in second place for the holiday weekend, with Pixar’s Coco projected to bring in around $70 million at 3,958 North American locations in its first five days, easily beating out Justice League which is on track for around $60 million from 4,051 screens.
Coco has already proved a big hit in Mexico, bringing in $48 million – which is the biggest opening of all time in that particular market.
It is estimated that Coco’s budget is around $175 – $200 million.
So far Justice League has brought in $122 million at the domestic box office.
