The next couple weeks will serve as a means for big blockbusters like Coco and Justice League to gain some extra box office revenue. While there are a few releases on the way, they’re all smaller dramas that really don’t compete on the same level as these two films. But how will things look in the coming weekend?
Variety is projecting that Coco will take the weekend for the second time in a row with $25 million, dropping just over 50 percent from its strong opening weekend of $50.8 million. This would also push Coco past the $100 million mark domestically.
We’ll be interested to see how the film performs overseas, as it’ll only be around $200 million worldwide after the weekend. Given the budget that likely exceeds $150 million (plus marketing), we can’t help but wonder how much money it’ll make, when all said and done.
Justice League is predicted to take second place with $17 million, which would be a 58 percent drop from second weekend. This would be another solid-sized drop, and would likely result in the numbers falling a bit short of $200 million domestically. That being said, it’ll be guaranteed to break $500 million easily.
What’ll be interesting to see is how its worldwide numbers will affect that figure. It’s been predicted that the film will make around $635 million by the end of its theatrical run, resulting in a substantial loss for the studio. As someone who enjoyed the film, we’d like to see Warner Bros. at least break even with this one.
