The Incredibles 2 Smashes All-Time Records At US Box Office

Incredibles 2

The film did not just break the previously held record for the opening collection by an animated feature, Incredibles 2 obliterated it. Pixar's own Finding Dory, a sequel to Finding Nemo, had opened at 135 million dollars in 2016.

"The film shows the drawing power of the superhero genre, whether in the live action or animated realm", box office analyst Paul Dergarbedian says. Disney, however, is being a bit more cautious and estimating Incredibles 2 will earn around $160-170 million.

So far, no incidents as a result of watching "Incredibles 2" have been reported.

According to Variety there have been no reported incidents of seizures among those who have seen "Incredibles 2", noting that in 1997 almost 700 children went to the hospital in Japan after watching the "Pokemon" movie that featured flashing red and blue lights in one scene.

Brad Bird wrote and directed the sequel, and he now has to his name the largest opening ever at the USA box office.

Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, Catherine Keener, Sophia Bush, and Brad Bird also lend their voices to the film, which Bird wrote and directed. The film has highly positive reviews.

But Bird, writer and director of "The Incredibles 2", tells The Washington Post's Comic Riffs that plans for a sequel never long left his mind over the intervening 14 years.

There has been some chatter today about the much anticipated Incredibles 2 movie causing some distress.

Meanwhile, this week, Supe plans to take her 3-year-old son to see the film, which will be "his first movie in the theater" experience, she said. "But the idea of our hero worrying about getting a job and paying the rent is still compelling". The movie follows the Parr family as they attempt to juggle a normal life with superhero responsibilities.
