Combining America’s love of superhero movies, Pixar movies, and sitting in a dark air-conditioned room when it’s hot outside has really paid off for Incredibles 2. The long-awaited sequel to 2004’s The Incredibles reportedly earned approximately $180 million at the domestic box office, giving it the biggest animated-film debut of all time, even when adjusted for inflation. The movie bested the second-highest grossing animated movie Finding Dory, which made just over $135 million when it premiered in June 2016. We’d say don’t tell her about it, but honestly, that fish would probably forget the whole thing in a matter of minutes.
