The film debuted Oct. 27 — two days before the start of the three-day Dia De Los Muertos holiday and has held the top spot at the box office for its first three consecutive weeks.

“Coco” opens Nov. 22 in the U.S., followed by China on Nov. 23, and Russia on Nov. 24. The film is currently rated at 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
