This week saw no major releases hit theaters (and saw films like The Disaster Artist and The Shape of Water having incredibly limited releases). As such, this was the second to last week for Coco and Justice League to reel in that box office cheese before Star Wars hits on December 15.

Coco did pretty well for itself, dropping a respectable 48.6 percent from its first weekend, taking in $26.1 million domestically. This brings the film’s grand total to $279.9 million worldwide thus far. It still likely has a ways to go until it’s able to clear it’s budget and marketing costs, but momentum is very much on its side, as is word of mouth. At the very least, it looks likely to break $400 million worldwide, coming in higher than this year’s Cars 3.

In second place this weekend was Justice League, taking in $16.6 million domestically, dropping just shy of 60 percent from its second weekend. Thus far, the film has made $567 million worldwide, and while it looks to likely break $650 million when it finishes its theatrical run, it seems like a tall order that it’ll make $700 million, which is what is estimated to be needed for the film to break even. It’ll be a close one, but it’s not impossible that this milestone could be made, though admittedly, it wouldn’t be seen as much of a victory by Warner Bros., who undoubtedly wished this film would break $1 billion worldwide.

In third place is Wonder, which continues its strong performance. It dropped only 45 percent after its second weekend, to take in $12.5 million. The film has made over $100 million worldwide on its $20 million budget, which is a huge success for Lionsgate.

    Mr. Medina, Cars 3 did just fine since it’s 383M worldwide on the 175M budget.

    Besides, many people knew that it would end the domestic run between 150M and 160M since Despicable Me 3 was coming over two weeks after that.
