Incredibles 2 Smashes Records At US Box Office

Incredibles 2

The opening weekend of Incredibles 2, the 8th-biggest of all-time, can be attributed not only to the pent-up demand for another film about the Parr superhero family, but also the demand for animated films themselves.

Incredibles 2 was helped by a lack of competition from other new movies this weekend.

It's safe to say that Disney-Pixar's "Incredibles 2" has shattered even the highest expectations as it has bowed this weekend with the best debut of all time for an animated film, reeling in $180 million.

"Incredibles 2" marks the official entry of Bollywood actress Kajol into the superhero world.

Pixar is used to box office success, with movies such as Toy Story 3 and Finding Dory among the most successful animated movies ever made. Disney, however, is being a bit more cautious and estimating Incredibles 2 will earn around $160-170 million.
