Pixar's Coco is off to a pretty impressive start at the box office.
How will Pixar's latest film Coco do at the USA box office this Thanksgiving? Through Wednesday, the movie made 824 million pesos ($43.1 million USD), and will pass the 827 million record set five years ago by "The Avengers". It now holds the record for the highest-grossing opening weekend of any film in that country, beating the previous record set by The Avengers in 2012.
The movie does not open in the US until November 22, but it should also perform well here, and in the rest of the world, based on the warm critical reception its received, so far. During Dia De Muertos, Miguel sneaks into the church where Ernesto's guitar is located and is transported to the Land of the Dead, where he meets his ancestors and a trickster named Hector Rivera (Gael Garcia Bernal).

Most of us have seen a Pixar movie, whether that be "Finding Nemo", "Cars", or "Inside Out". The animated feature now has a very impressive 96 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, which easily makes it one of the best-reviewed animated movies of the year.
Social elements of the app include the ability for users to play with up to three other people, each wearing VR headsets, where they can model traditional Dia de los Muertos clothing and decorate virtual calaca skeleton heads.
A standalone VR app, created by the studio Magnopus, debuted exclusively for Facebook's Oculus Rift device on November 15 and features a roughly 20-minute interactive story that tracks a young musician's journey to the "Land of the Dead," including through unreleased film footage.
