Pixar Tops Thanksgiving Weekend with Coco — Box Office

Coco Strums Its Way Through A Heartwarming Weekend At The Box Office

Coco earned $18.6 million at the box office on Friday, beating Justice League by $2.1 million.

The Seattle Times said it was "overflowing with love, poignancy, humour, colour and music".

The Hollywood Reporter agreed: "At every imaginative juncture, the filmmakers (the screenplay is credited to Pixar veteran Molina and Matthew Aldrich) create a richly woven tapestry of comprehensively researched storytelling, fully dimensional characters, clever touches both tender and amusingly macabre, and vivid, beautifully textured visuals". Pixar again, with the sequel Monsters University - also World War Z. A big-budget, light comedy actioner by a star director, its under-performance points to the increasing sophistication of Chinese audiences. Installments of the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises.

"Coco" will make audience members laugh, cry and consider their place in their family's lineage while wondering how they will be remembered after death. The film reached a total of $53.4 million in Mexico, where it opened three weeks ago, making it the country's highest grossing release of all time.

The gritas and chorizo and chancla and alebrije and the abuelita insisting Miguel eat a few more tamales and the elotes and the "no manches" made me feel like I was on screen with my friends and family.

This is annoying people as most Pixar "shorts" tend to clock in at around the 5 or 6 minute mark (think of Finding Dory's Piper preview). I let it all go as I was enveloped by a pleasantly bland haze, one that had been carefully fine-tuned and focus-grouped and optimized to sell the most possible merchandise. In China, it generated $17.7 million on its opening weekend, about what Coco brought in. I am married to a white American and to be able to share that film with him was amazing. In fact, they kind of hated it. The movie, starring Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay, tells the story of a fifth-grade boy with a facial deformity who must deal with other children's shock and bullying when he first attends a mainstream school.

The Land of the Dead is a beautiful place, and Miguel is glad to learn that his dead relatives are happy there, but he needs to get back to the Land of the Living by sunrise or he'll be stuck there permanently as a skeleton. This was because they carried a cross-generational grudge against his great-great-great grandfather, a musician who had abandoned his wife Imelda (Allana Ubach) and infant daughter Coco (Ana Ofelia Murguía) in order to pursue stardom.

- Will Meredith clean out the ranks of Time Inc. executives?

The Good: This is another triumph for Pixar. The company's news properties, including Time and Fortune, are particularly expensive to operate and don't bring in the advertising dollars that entertainment and lifestyle titles do. But not all of them went the distance. But this reveal may have been hinted at much earlier than we expected: in Hector's guitar. Sure, if Buzz, Woody and the gang had never existed, somebody else probably would've done similar, but honestly, we're glad it worked out the way it did.

The film that once raised warning flags is now being uplifted in the nation it seeks to honor and respect.

"Roman J. Israel, Esq". It's one of the best movies I've ever seen and it's the biggest, clearest mirror I've ever looked into.
