'Coco' Overpowers 'Justice League' To Take Number 1 At Box Office

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Thanksgiving at the nation's box offices was ``solid if not record-breaking,'' as a Disney/Pixar animated feature grabbed the holiday weekend crown as most-popular film.

``Coco'' debuted with an ``impressive'' $71.2 million over the five day holiday period that started Wednesday, said movie industry analyst Paul Dergarabedian at comScore.

``The film is an instant classic,'' Dergarabedian said, with a full 20 percent of the surveyed audience saying they would pay to see it twice.

``Coco'' opened two weeks ago in Mexico, and was estimated to have sold $153.4 million globally in pesos and dollars as of today.

In second place, ``Justice League'' was poised to deal $63 million in sales this weekend, bringing its 10-day sales mark in the U.S. and Canada to $171.5 million. Globally, it has a $481.3 million total, according to Warner Bros.

``Wonder'' held down third place, with an estimated $32.3 million in holiday sales.

Rounding out the top 10 movies in the United States and Canada, as reported by the studios and gathered by comScore, were ``Thor: Ragnarok'' ($24.3 million), ``Daddy's Home 2'' ($18.63 million), ``Murder On The Orient Express'' ($18.62 million), ``The Star'' ($6.9 million), ``A Bad Mom's Christmas'' ($6.8 million), ``Roman J. Israel, Esq.'' ($6.2 million) and ``Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri'' ($5.9 million).
