Overseas, "Incredibles 2" managed to pull in $51.5 million, where its only available in 26% of the worldwide market so far, bringing the global total to $231.5 million.

Fourteen years after the original, the long-awaited sequel "Incredibles 2" proved to be a superhero at the box office, exceeding all expectations for a record-breaking $180-million opening weekend at the domestic box office. The film is now rated at 94% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie is based on the life of Parrs, a family blessed with superpowers. Hunter's Elastigirl takes center stage as she's recruited to lead a campaign to bring Supers back after heroes are forced to permanently hide their identities.




"Incredibles 2" is also the second biggest ever June debut, behind only "Jurassic World" ($208.8 million), which has its own sequel preparing to take a bite out of the box office when its opens in North America next weekend. The film went on to gross $633 million and win an Oscar for best animated film. A further $51.5m was added outside the United States, although the film has only opened in around a quarter of territories.

It knocked "Ocean's 8" to a distant second in its second weekend in theaters with $19.6 million. The R-rated comedy is based on a Wall Street Journal article about a group of grown men who play a longstanding game of tag.

The fourth frame of "Solo: A Star Wars Story" will battle it out for fourth place with the fifth weekend of "Deadpool 2", each forecasted to bring in around $9 million. It has earned 79.17 million dollars in North American theatres through Sunday. The film remains on track to reel in about $8 million for the weekend. Playing in 503 locations, the long-delayed film which boasts a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, took in $1.7 million.
