Incredibles 2 may have been introduced to the US over a month ago, but the sequel has been steadily amassing box office takings as it’s been released in countries all over the world. In fact, lots of countries are still waiting!
Its reception has been more than positive across the globe, and Incredibles 2 has now made the staggering achievement of passing the $1 billion mark at the global box office. It’s also in the top 10 fastest movies ever to reach the $500 million milestone, and is the only animated movie in this lineup.
Finding Dory previously held the title of “biggest domestic animated movie opening”, but Incredibles 2 has succeeded in overtaking it, becoming the first ever animated movie to gross over $500 million in the US. This makes it the highest-grossing Pixar movie domestically. Superhero movies are totally dominating the theatres these days, and yet Incredibles 2 is already the 4th highest-grossing superhero-genre movie out there, even overtaking the likes of The Dark Knight.
But enough of all those statistics… What’s really important is that Incredibles 2 has clearly lived up to fans’ expectations and the super talented team of super-movie makers at Pixar have done themselves proud. We can’t wait for those of you around the world who are still patiently (or not so patiently) waiting to see the movie for themselves! Incredibles 2 releases in Japan tomorrow, and residents of Germany have to wait until September 27th. Hang in there, superheroes!
