Disney’s Box Office Weekend Report – A strong finish for Coco, high mark for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Thanks to a strong international box office Pixar’s Coco came in 6th at the worldwide results this weekend with a take of $15 Million. That brings the film to more than $680M worldwide and over $202M domestically. That places it 7th on Pixar’s list of best performing films for worldwide earnings.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi has dropped in both domestic and worldwide box office results registering just $8.9M in worldwide sales. The movie did sneak beyond the $1.3 Billion mark this week at worldwide total, with $700M of that coming from international showings and $610M coming from domestic moviegoers.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi did end up as the top movie of 2017, but has been outplayed by Jumanji in 2018. It currently ranks as the fourth best film distributed by Disney coming in behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Marvel’s The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. Episode 8 is now the 9th highest grossing film of all time worldwide and 6th highest grossing film domestic.

In fact, Disney owns 6 of the top 10 highest grossing domestic films of all time (not adjusted for inflation).

1. Star Wars: The Force Awakens – $936.7M
5. Marvel’s The Avengers – $623.4M
6. Star Wars: The Last Jedi – $610.7M
