Incredibles 2 Opening Weekend Record of a $180 Million

Disney and Pixar’s Incredibles 2 delivered a massive opening weekend debut, not only shattering the previous opening weekend record for an animated film, but finishing with one of the top ten openings of all-time for a film of any genre. Additionally, Warner Bros.’s R-rated comedy Tag debuted in third position while Sony’s Superfly fell short of expectations.

With an estimated $180 million, Disney and Pixar’s Incredibles 2 topped the previous opening weekend for an animated film set two years ago by Finding Dory with $135 million. On top of that, the film’s opening weekend is the eighth largest all-time, topping the $179.1 million opening for 2016’s Captain America: Civil War, which went on to gross over $400 million at the domestic box office. Also of note, this is more than the $174.7 million opening for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which went on to gross over $500 million domestically. As for Incredibles 2‘s domestic future, an “A+” CinemaScore and an opening of this size seems to suggest a $500+ million domestic performance is in the offing, which would make it the highest grossing animated film of all-time should it reach that number, topping Dory‘s $486.2 million domestic run.

Additionally, beyond the records already mentioned, the film delivered the largest opening day ever for an animated title and the second largest June opening ever behind Jurassic World. Added to that, when it comes to the largest opening weekends of all-time, Disney now owns nine of the top ten, the lone standout being the aforementioned Jurassic World at number four.
