Incredibles 2 Opening Weekend

The Incredibles 2 has been shattering records at the box office this weekend. After the dust settled from the multitude of Pixar fans flocking to theaters, Incredibles 2 can now claim the highest animation debut of all time! The $180 million in domestic ticket sales crushed the projected estimates of  $125 million to $140 million that analysts were originally predicting.

To put this in perspective, Finding Dory was the previous reigning champ with opening weekend ticket sales totaling $135 million in 2016 (not adjusted for inflation). The live-action version of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast had a $116 million opening weekend for its debut last year.

In “Incredibles 2,” Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.
