A positive sign for Disney-Pixar’s Coco: the film performed even better in its second weekend in Mexico than its first.
Coco grossed $10.4 million in weekend two, up 12% from its $9.3 million debut frame. After 10 days in theaters, the film has amassed a bulky $27.6M, more than any other animated film has ever earned in Mexico at the 10-day mark.
It’s still too early to tell if Coco, directed by Lee Unkrich and co-directed by Adrian Molina, could become the highest-grossing animated feature in Mexican history, but it’s certainly a possibility. Ironically, for Coco to achieve the record, it would have to dethrone another film directed by Unkrich: Toy Story 3, which earned $59.4M in 2010.
