THANKSGIVING B.O. AT $268M, SPURRED BY 'COCO' (11/27/2017)
The five-day Thanksgiving weekend raked in $268 million, the fourth-best haul ever for the holiday, and up 3% over last year.
Much of the booty comes courtesy of Disney/Pixar’s Coco, which brought in $71.2 million. Coco was forecast to deliver a $65 million opener, so the box office bump is a coup, especially considering the recent sexual misconduct scandal surrounding Pixar boss John Lasseter.
Justice League brought in a hearty $60 million and Wonder delivered with $32.25 million.
