Disney and Pixar's Coco has topped the box office for a third time on a quiet, pre-Star Wars: The Last Jedi weekend in theaters. Disney estimates Sunday that Coco added $18.3 million, bringing its domestic total to $135.5 million. Justice League took second place with $9.6 million and the sleeper hit Wonder placed third with $8.5 million. James Franco's The Disaster Artist jumped to fourth place in its second weekend expansion with $6.4 million, and Thor: Ragnarok rounded out the top five.

The weekend's sole new wide release was the Morgan Freeman film Just Getting Started, which launched to a meager $3.2 million. Most studios have chosen to avoid competing against The Last Jedi, which is expected to dominate theaters and moviegoer attention when it opens on Friday, per the AP.
