The 20th release from Pixar Studios soared past expectations to a record-shattering $180 million at the weekend box office out of 4,410 theatres across the US making it the most successful opening for animated movie. Finding Dory previously held the crown with a $135 million launch in 2016.

Incredibles 2 didn’t just break animation records, the film also secured the eighth-best domestic opening for any film, not adjusted for inflation, and landed the title of best debut for a PG-rated film, surpassing Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast remake, which opened to $174.6 million in 2017.

Disney and Pixar’s long-awaited sequel sees the return of the Parr family, finally back on theatre screens after a shocking 14-year wait and the film has fared well with both critics and audiences alike, earning an A+ CinemaScore and a Certified Fresh rating with a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Overseas, Incredibles 2 has opened in 26% of the international market and picked up an addition $51.5 million. That brings the global opening total to an impressive $231.5 million.

Joining Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson and Samuel L. Jackson are newcomers Bob Odenkirk, Sophia Bush and Catherine Keener. Brad Bird returns as writer/director.
