“Incredibles 2” Shatters Opening Weekend Records For Animated Movies

Do you remember the chart-bursting movie “The Incredibles” which came out 14 years ago? Well, Part 2 of the film is out with a bang that crashed records.

“Incredibles 2” has just destroyed the opening weekend’s records for animated films previously held by 2016’s “Finding Dory,” reports Huffpost.

According to Box Office Mojo, “Incredibles 2” shattered this record by grossing an estimated $180 million in domestic markets. The previous domestic record was held by 2016′s “Finding Dory,” which grossed $135 million.

In “Incredibles 2,” we once again follow members of the Parr family who this time take on Screenslaver, a mysterious new villain who brainwashes people through their electronic devices.

The box office showing for “Incredibles 2” is perhaps even more amazing considering it’s a sequel to a movie that came out 14 years ago ― meaning some of the children who saw the first film are now well into adulthood. But we imagine some of them are now taking their own kids to see the new one.

In 2004, “The Incredibles” grossed $70 million in its opening weekend and ended up taking in a total of $633 million worldwide.

“Incredibles 2” had a 94 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes as of Sunday.
