The animation has become a huge box-office hit


There's been little movement in the US box office charts this weekend, as the top six remains the same as last week.

Disney Pixar topped the list once again with animation Coco, earning an impressive $26,114,000 over the weekend, according to BoxOfficeMojo.

Coco's triumph left superhero movies Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok reeling in its wake – in second and fourth place respectively.

The animated film is based upon the festive Mexican holiday Día de Muertos, which honours the dead – and follows the story of Miguel, a 12-year-old who yearns to become famous.

His family isn't best pleased about his bold aspirations, which leads to him resisting the celebrations of the Day of the Dead

Miguel then ends up on the other side and seeks the help of his great-great-grandfather in getting back to his family of the living.

The concept is obviously a hit with critics as well as audiences, as Coco also boasts a 96% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Meanwhile, in third place was Wonder, the movie adaptation of the best-selling book about a young boy with facial deformities determined to lead a 'normal' life.

Starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, the film earned $12,500,000.

In fifth place was comedy Daddy's Home 2, starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, as sixth position was taken up by Murder on the Orient Express.

Coming-of-age comedy-drama Lady Bird, starring Saoirse Ronan, made it into seventh position, while Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Star and A Bad Moms Christmas rounded out the top 10.

1. Coco — $26.1 million
