Incredibles 2 Lands A Record Setting Weekend

The opening weekend for Incredibles 2 was a record setter.

The Disney-Pixar movie flew to a record-breaking launch of $180-Million in 4,410 different theatrical locations, earning the superhero sequel the best debut of all time for an animated film. The long awaited sequel officially tops the $135-Million opening of fellow Disney-Pixar animated sequel Finding Dory, which had previously held the record since debuting in 2016.

Additionally, Incredibles 2 landed the eighth biggest domestic opening of all time, and surpassed the $174.6-Million netted by 2017's live-action version of Beauty And The Beast.

Overseas, the movie locked in an additional $51.5-Million.

This brings the movie's total box office gross to $231.5-Million.

The first Incredibles movie opened in 2004 with a record setting $70.5-Million, and would go on to amass $633-Million worldwide and an Oscar for Best Animated Film.

Incredibles 2 picks up directly following the events of the original film with the Parr family members attempting to balance having a normal life with their superpowers. Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Vowell, and Samuel L. Jackson reprise their voice roles, while Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Huck Milner and Sophia Bush voice new characters.

Brad Bird returned to write and direct the sequel.
