Holdovers reigned supreme at the box office this week with no new wide releases.
Repeating in the top spot is Coco, which brought in $26.1 million in its second weekend. That is a 48.6 percent decrease from its opening frame, which is a decent hold for the animated film. It has been the beneficiary of strong word-of-mouth, which has added to its commercial appeal. Pixar's latest has now made $108.6 million domestically and $279.9 million worldwide, becoming yet another hit for the studio. It should continue to do well over the next couple of weeks until Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out.
In second is Justice League with $16.5 million. The DC Extended Universe team-up is now up to $197.3 million in the States and $508.3 million globally, inching closer to the magic $600 million mark it needs to cross in order to break even. This frankly is hardly what Warner Bros. was hoping for with their first major ensemble film, and it's now expected Justice League's final total will not be able to best Man of Steel. The studio will try to salvage what they can over the first half of December, but there's no denying this film was a financial disappointment - especially after Wonder Woman established some positive momentum.
Coming in third once again is Wonder. The family film grossed $12.5 million in its third weekend to increase its U.S. haul to $88 million.
Thor: Ragnarok finishes in fourth place with $9.6 million. Marvel's latest installment is now up to $291.4 million domestically and ranks in the top 10 highest-grossing MCU movies.
Rounding out the top five is Daddy's Home 2. The comedy sequel brought in $7.5 million and currently stands at $82.8 million.
It was Groundhog Day at the box office, as the top six movies were the same as last weekend. Murder on the Orient Express rounds it out, making $6.7 million. The murder-mystery has now made $84.7 million.
Adding 403 more theaters in its expansion rollout, Lady Bird came in seventh with $4.5 million. The Oscar contender has earned $17 million domestically in its run so far.
The #8 movie is Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri with $4.3 million. Another awards hopefully, the dark comedy has done well in a smaller release due to the Oscar buzz and has now made $13.6 million domestically.
In ninth is The Star. The animated retelling of the Nativity story earned $4 million in its third weekend and is now up to $27.2 million in the States.
Capping off the top ten is A Bad Moms Christmas. The comedy sequel made $3.4 million to raise its U.S. total to $64.8 million.
[NOTE: These are only weekend box office estimates -- based on Friday and Saturday ticket sales coupled with adjusted expectations for Sunday. Official weekend box office results will be released on Monday, December 4 -- at which time we'll update this post with any changes.]
