Big news for Pixar fans: Incredibles 2 is biggest animated opening ever!

Here is some huge news for all of you Incredibles fans. Incredibles 2 has just opened to a $180 million weekend which is the biggest domestic animated opening box office of all time!

This tops the previous animation record by 2016’s Finding Dory by some $45 million. It is also the eighth biggest domestic opening of all time for any movie.

Yes, this really was an “incredible” performance (ha, ha, ha). Could it be there is a pent-up desire for family-oriented animated movies? Or maybe it is also a pent-up desire for yet more superheroes? Superheroes + CGI animation = boffo box office.
