Recapping Last Weekend

Coco, Pixar’s latest animated feature, reigned supreme over Thanksgiving weekend this year. The film directed by Lee Unkrich pulled in $50.8 million last weekend to take the box office crown. As of this writing, Coco has amassed $78.5 million in domestic receipts and $82.3 million overseas in just seven days in theaters.

While Coco has been a hit with critics, Disney’s decision to play a 21-minute Frozen animated short before the film is drawing the ire of pretty much everyone. Be warned that if you go to see Coco, Olaf’s Frozen Adventure will play after the previews and before the feature film.

Elsewhere at the box office over the weekend, Justice League pulled in $41 million in its second weekend of release. The film has been a bit of a disappointment for fans and Warner Bros. alike, but it has sold almost $500 million worth of tickets worldwide in 12 days of release.

The fantastic Wonder scored a $22.6 million second weekend of release. The film stars Julia Roberts, Owen Wilson and Jacob Tremblay and is just fantastic. Go see it.

Opening This Weekend

The Disaster Artist

James Franco directs The Disaster Artist, which is essentially a movie about the making of a really bad movie. This movie is based on the book by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell. The really bad movie in question is 2003’s The Room, in which Sestero played one of the leads. The book is not based on the making of the 2015 film Room, starring the aforementioned Tremblay and Brie Larson.

If that isn’t confusing enough, just wait. With Franco directing, a host of great actors and actresses appear in this film. The cast includes Alison Brie, Lizzy Caplan, Zoey Deutch, Kristen Bell, Josh Hutcherson, Zac Efron, Bryan Cranston, Seth Rogen, Megan Mullally and Adam Scott.

James Franco pulls double-duty, playing the role of Tommy Wiseau in this film. Wiseau directed The Room and starred as Johnny opposite Sestero. Franco’s younger brother, Dave, portrays Greg Sestero. Wiseau himself appears in this film as Henry.

Wiseau, who is essentially the focus of this film, is quite the mystery. He’s apparently independently wealthy, but no one exactly knows how. James Franco and Wiseau appeared together for an interview with Jimmy Kimmel where Wiseau surprised Franco with a tidbit about his background.
