“Incredibles 2” Debuts With $180 Million At The Box Office; “Solo” Still Slipping; “Infinity War” Not Done Yet
“Incredibles 2 came in first a the box office this weekend and also had an very impressive debut! Meanwhile, “Solo: A Star Wars Story” finished in fourth pace and “Avengers: Infinity War” finished in eight place.
“Incredibles 2” broke a record for the largest opening for an animated film with $180 million domestically. Previously, that record was held by “Finding Dory”, which had opened with $135 million back in 2016. Overseas, Incredibles 2 brought in $52 million, bringing it’s worldwide box office total to $232 million. The film has only opened in select global regions, so expect Incredibles 2 to really start raking in the dough when it opens more and more in various foreign markets over the next few weekends.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story” brought in $9 million domestically, bringing it’s domestic box office total to $194 million. Overseas, Solo brought in $5 million, bringing it’s global box office total to $146 million. Solo’s worldwide box office total is now $340 million.
“Avengers: Infinity War” came in with $5 million domestically, bringing it’s domestic box office total to $664 million. Overseas, Infinity War made $13 million, bringing it’s international total to $1.356 billion. Infinity War’s worldwide box office total is now at $2.020 billion. Currently, Infinity War is less than $50 million away from “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, which holds the title of the third highest grossing movie of all time with $2.068 billion. It’s definitely going to be difficult for Infinity War to overtake The Force Awakens as next weekend “Jurassic Park: Fallen Kingdom” debuts at the box office.
