The Walt Disney Company: Coco Tops US Box Office as Thor:Ragnarok Hits $500 Million International

Bob Iger, Pixar and Marvel Studios should be really happy with those numbers:

Pixar’s Coco made a dazzling debut over Thanksgiving, opening at No. 1 domestically with $72.9 million over the five-day holiday weekend. The film has already made history in Mexico as the No. 1 release of all-time in local currency with more than 1 billion pesos. Embraced by audiences and critics alike, Coco earned an A+ CinemaScore and is Certified Fresh at 96% on RottenTomatoes.

Also, Coco is building up in international markets:

With an international cume of $82.3 million, Coco has taken in $155.2 million worldwide through November 26. It expands internationally next week to France, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Israel, Thailand, Panama and Peru.

And Thor: Ragnarok isn’t left behind:

With a thunderous $791.5 million at the worldwide box office, including $277.7 million domestically and $513.8 million internationally, Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok has surpassed $500 million internationally and sits on the cusp of $800 million worldwide. It is Marvel Studios’ ninth film to top $700 million worldwide and Disney’s fourth release of the year to do so. With an A CinemaScore and 92% Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, Thor: Ragnarok opened domestically November 3 with $122.7 million, maintaining Marvel Studios’ unbroken streak of No. 1 debuts.

Disney has had a great year of films, ending up with Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There’s no doubt Lucasfilm will win big at the box office, but can it top Episode 7 and the roster of Marvel films from this year?
