'Coco' Is Doing Better In This Country Than In The United States Or Mexico

But it’s the movie’s core message about family that seems to have propelled it to great success in China.

“There have been films in the past that Chinese audiences have embraced for their message about family,” Stanley Rosen, a political science professor at the University of Southern California’s U.S.-China Institute, told Quartz. “What we’re seeing with ‘Coco’ is similar to what we saw with ‘Dangal,’ [a 2016 Indian film] which was about the first women wrestlers to compete for India and their father who trained them. That film also had a strong message about putting family first and became a huge hit in China.”
