'Justice League' Earns $60 Million Over Thanksgiving Weekend

"Coco" was a hit at the box office over Thanksgiving weekend, naturally, but the decision to air a very long "Frozen" short before "Coco" was not so popular. It's out-pacing its blockbuster competition, Justice League, which should bring in $61 million before Monday rolls around. Excruciating. "In addition to representing the worst elements of the crass commercialization of Christmas, the songs were lackluster, the plotting is painfully cliched, and Olaf is annoying as shit", tweeted one viewer.

"Coco" is a fascinating take on what the meanings of family, death, music, and life really are. The headstock of the guitar is decorated to look like a skull, and features a single gold tooth.

The film perfectly mixes humor and emotion as it tells a story about a boy who just wants to play a guitar for his family. The Earth, itself, was left for dead in "Wall-E". For its marketing, Disney in 2013 applied to trademark "Dia de los Muertos" - the Mexican holiday that the movie centers on - sparking a backlash from prominent Latino voices. Each theme presented in "Coco", from honoring the dead's legacy in life to remembering the importance of strong family ties, is universal, making direct connections to the audience's life experiences. The characters are all lovingly rendered with exceptional detail and distinction in the skeleton character's faces.

Since Toy Story was made almost two decades ago (it never gets any easier, hearing that) animation has come on leaps and bounds - it's difficult to think of a kids' film these days that isn't, at least in part, animated.

12-year-old Miguel (Anthony Gonzalez) loves music even though his family is strongly opposed to it. His great-great grandfather walked out on his wife and daughter Coco to pursue a music career, and since then music has been strictly forbidden in the family. (Ingenious move, turning the afterlife into a border-crossing issue.) Other perils include being forgotten by the living and suffering a double death, disappearing from the land of the dead and going... well, no one quite knows where the dead go once they're forgotten. It was followed by last week's winner, "Justice League", in second place and "Coco" in third. Not only did viewers feel like Olaf's Frozen Adventure was inane and unnecessary, they also felt like the film was just too long for pleasure. John Jurgensen writes: "Advertisers and entertainment companies, aiming to capture a fragmented teen audience that likes 'authentic' stars, find a guide in YouTube celebrity Liza Koshy". Rich and beautifully realized with great fluidity of movement.

Pixar is an interesting franchise of films because up until 2011, it seemed they could do no wrong.

The animated smash soared to a $71.2 million domestic debut to win the five-day holiday frame, topping such superhero behemoths as "Justice League" and "Thor: Ragnarok", according to studio estimates Sunday. With ghosts and supernatural ritual so central to Coco's plot, it would appear to also violate SAPPRFT's rules.

That said, the Zack Snyder-directed movie has added about $309.8 million overseas, putting its worldwide total at $481.3 million.

"And that meant really asking the question at every stage of the process: Is this reflective of these families?"
