(Newser) – Pixar's Coco sang its way to the fourth-best Thanksgiving weekend ever with an estimated $71.2 million over the five-day weekend, a total that easily toppled Warner Bros.' Justice League. Coco rode strong reviews and an A-plus CinemaScore from audiences to the top spot at the domestic box office. According to studio estimates Sunday, it grossed $49 million from Friday to Sunday. Centered on the Mexican holiday Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead), Coco has already set box office records in Mexico.

After a disappointing debut last weekend, the DC Comics superhero team-up film Justice League slid to second with $40.7 million. In the five-day holiday frame, it earned about $60 million. The Oscar contender Call Me by Your Name had one of the year's best limited releases.
