The festive time of Thanksgiving brings spirit of togetherness and harmony among the people of the United States and this has been reflected in the US Box Office as well, with Disney and Pixar’s musical fantasy film ‘Coco’ breaking DC Films’ sci-fi superhero film ‘Justice League’s record in raking the moolah.

Coco has definitely struck a chord with the audience as the vibrant Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)-themed animated musical has now collected an estimated total of $71.2 million in only five days of release, out of which a smashing $49 million was collected over the long holiday weekend from November 24 to 26, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Meanwhile, big-budget spectacle Justice League collected only $40.7 million over the weekend and $63 million over the last five days.

Coco marks the fourth-highest Thanksgiving opening ever, behind Frozen ($93.6 million), Moana ($82.1 million), and Toy Story 2 ($80.1 million).

Coco has also collected $82.2 million from foreign markets bringing its worldwide total to $153.4 million since its November-22 release.

Justice League’s worldwide total now stands at $481.3 million since its November 17 release.

Directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina, Coco received positive reviews from critics and is currently rated 96 per cent “fresh” on Rotten Tomatoes. The film centres around a 12-year-old Mexican boy, who confronts his family’s ancestral ban on music.

Coco’s cast includes newcomer Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, and Alanna Ubach.
