De website Coming Soon strooit met alle cijfers en daar van kan je hier onder een kleine stukje lezen.
Disney•Pixar‘s long-awaited Incredibles 2 has finally arrived and the sequel has taken the world by storm and left a flurry of broken records in its wake. Domestically Incredibles 2 debuted to $180 million, setting the record for highest animation debut of all time, surpassing Finding Dory’s $135 million from two years ago. The film has also secured the #1 debut ever for a “PG” rated movie (beating out last year’s Beauty and the Beast) and marks Pixar’s 7th A+ Cinemascore ranking. Internationally, Incredibles 2 has collected an estimated $51.5 million from just 26% of the additional markets that it will open in, giving it a global total of $231.5 million. Written and directed by Brad Bird, the film features the voices of Holly Hunter, Craig T. Nelson, Sarah Vowell, Huck Milner, Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Bird, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener, Jonathan Banks, Sophia Bush, and Isabella Rossellini.
Warner Bros. Pictures‘ Ocean’s 8 landed in second place with $19.55 million bringing its domestic total to $79.1 million. Internationally, the female caper took in an additional $19.3 million giving it a global total of $116.2 million. The spin-off still has some catching up to do with the original Steven Soderbergh directed films, which sit comfortably ahead of it even before inflation adjustments. Directed by Gary Ross, the movie stars Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett plus Rihanna, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson and James Corden.
