    The year saw a lift from November box office grosses as this past month was only the third time ever November receipts totaled more than $1 billion, led by Disney and Marvel's release of Thor: Ragnarok, which delivered nearly 28% of the month's total. Heading into the November, 2017 was trailing 2016 by 5.3%, but coming out of it this year was 4.4% behind 2016 thanks to what was the third largest November ever and a 5.1% improvement over November last year.

  2. 'Coco' Threepeats, 'Disaster Artist' Soars and WB Tops $2 Billion
    Disney and Pixar's Coco topped the weekend box office for the third week in a row. In fact, the only shake-up in the weekend top five compared to the last two weeks is to see A24's The Disaster Artist landing in fourth position as it expanded into 840 theaters this weekend following its strong limited bow last week. As for the weekend's only new wide release, Broad Green's release of Just Getting Started struggled to finish over $3 million, barely eking into the top ten. With an estima...
  3. 'Coco' Strums Up Second Weekend at #1 While Limited Releases Make a Splash
    Disney and Pixar's Coco led the post-Thanksgiving frame in what was a repeat of last weekend's top five thanks in large part to no new wide releases this weekend. That doesn't mean there isn't anything to discuss as A24 enjoyed a great weekend with Lady Bird continuing its strong play and the studio's much-talked about feature The Disaster Artist finished just outside the top ten in its limited bow from just 19 locations. Additionally, Fox Searchlight's The Shape of Water was the weekend's ...
  4. 'Coco' To Lead Post-Thanksgiving Weekend as Limited Releases Take the Stage
    Following a strong opening last weekend, Disney and Pixar's Coco is looking at a second weekend atop the box office. In fact, with no new wide releases hitting the marketplace this weekend's top ten is looking a lot like last weekend's as the top five seems unlikely to change while a few expanding titles jockey for position in bottom five. There are, however, some choice limited releases beginning their roll-out this weekend including A24's much anticipated The Disaster Artist and Guillermo...
  5. 'Coco' Scores Another Strong Thanksgiving Debut for Disney
    With a strong, five-day debut Disney and Pixar's Coco joined the ranks of the many successful films Disney has launched over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Receiving high marks from critics and audiences alike, the film finished atop the weekend box office and is looking at solid returns throughout the holiday season. Additionally, WB and DC Comics' Justice League and Lionsgate's Wonder played mostly as expected as the three films contributed to a healthy helping of receipts at the holi...
  6. 'Coco' Hopes to Add to Disney's Legacy at the Thanksgiving Box Office
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: Coco has played well so far through the holidays thus far and brought in an estimated $18.6 million on Friday, pushing its domestic cume after three days to $40.7 million. At this time it's looking as if a three-day weekend around $48-50 million is in the offing for a five-day gross around $70+ million. At the same time, WB and DC Comics' Justice League is holding on mostly as expected, pushing toward a five-day total that just might reach $60 million, but seems most...
  7. 'Justice League' Stumbles in Domestic Debut as 'Wonder' Delivers Wondrous Results
    Warner Bros. and DC Comics' Justice League struggled compared to expectations as it failed to top $100 million over the course of its three-day weekend. Meanwhile, it was Lionsgate's Wonder that captured audience attention, debuting with an excellent $27 million, topping Thor: Ragnarok for a second place finish, positioning itself well for the holiday weeks ahead. Additionally, A24's Lady Bird continued its impressive run in limited release as it makes way for a nationwide debut over Thank...
  8. 'Justice League' is Coming Together for $110+ Million Opening While 'Wonder' Looks to Surprise
    SATURDAY AM UPDATE: WB and DC Comics' Justice League is getting off to a slower start than expected, bringing in an estimated $38.8 million on Friday (including $13 million from Thursday previews) and looking as if it's unlikely to reach $100 million for the three-day weekend.

Internationally, Justice League has now released in 65 markets and has so far brought in an estimated $70.7 million for a $109.5 million global cume thus far. ...
  9. October 2017 Box Office Returned to the Year's Downward Trend
    After September delivered record numbers, the month of October saw the 2017 box office return to its downward trend, delivering calendar grosses down 15.6% compared to last year, falling below $600 million for the first time in ten years. Perhaps most startling is that with 287 films in release, the average per film was just $1.9 million, making it the first time that average has ever fallen below $2.1 million for any individual month based on BoxOfficeMojo's records going back to 1982. Th...
  10. 'Thor 3' Repeats While 'Daddy's Home 2' and 'Orient Express' Deliver Strong Debuts
    Thor: Ragnarok delivered an expected #1 finish in its second weekend at the domestic box office, pushing the film's domestic total ahead of both the first and second Thor films after just ten days in release. However, just as much a story are the strong openings for a batch of newcomers, both wide and and limited, as Paramount's Daddy's Home 2 and Fox's Murder on the Orient Express both delivered ahead of expectations and Fox Searchlight's Three Billboards averaged $80,000 per theater over ...
