Disney-Pixar’s latest installment, Coco, has proven to be a success at the box office, earning $138.6 million domestically and $236 million internationally. The news was shared by Disney on Wednesday.

The film focuses on a 12-year-old boy and the celebration of the Day of the Dead and its music. It set a box office record in Mexico with $56.8 million following a late October launch ahead of the holiday.

The success is even bigger when we know, as Disney noted, that the movie has yet to be released in around a third of the international market. Among the audiences that still haven’t seen it are Italy, Brazil, Australia, U.K., Japan and Korea.

The Chinese market has brought the most of the international success so far. It has earned nearly as much as the domestic market – $133 million.

Coco is the fourth title of 2017 to lead the domestic box office for three straight weekends along with The Hitman’s Bodyguard, Fate of the Furious and Split.
