Coco doing splendidly well in the US and China

DisneyCoco, the Disney/Pixar’s movie has certainly brought the U.S. box office to life with a collection of $71.2 million over the weekend.


Earlier, Disney-Pixar has repeatedly raised the bar of animated movies by telling stories that would appeal to children and adults alike.

Disney-Pixar has continuously raised the bar of animated movies by telling stories that would appeal to both children and adults alike. But unlike their past couple of films that seemed to miss that crucial element of storytelling, Coco is an original tale and a highly imaginative one at that.

Directed by Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina, the movie had the fourth best debut at the domestic box office over the weekend after Disney’s Frozen ($93/5 million), Moana ($82 million) and Toy Story 2 ($80.1 million).

The film also received a very impressive A+ Cinemascore from audiences. According to Screen Engine/ComScore Hispanic audiences made up 36 % of all ticket buyers next to 43% Caucasian and 8% African American and 8% Asian.

The film in mention which has already become the biggest movie of all-time in Mexico had a spectacular opening in China, with an $18.2 million weekend opener. The total global take for the weekend was $30.7 million in 22 markets for an international cume of $82.2 million and a worldwide tally at $153.4 million to date.

In India too, the film is doing stupendously well having been lapped up by the audience.
