#BOXOFFICE: “COCO” IS ALIVE A SECOND WEEK
COCO is set to top the Box office a second consecutive week in a row with $27 million from 3,987 theatres for Disney. Domestically it has made $119 million. In fact we see no changes from last week in our top four Movies, this due partly to the lack of new challengers released this weekend.
JUSTICE LEAGUE settles for second again this weekend with $15.8 million for Warner Bros. Over three weeks it has grossed $196.5 million over three weeks.
WONDER remains in third spot with $3.2 million for Lionsgate Films/eOne Films, grossing $88 million thus far in its North American run.

THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING, MISSOURI expands to 1,430 theatres with $4.5 million for Fox Searchlight, good enough for seventh spot this weekend.
