Disney and Pixar's Incredibles 2 has broken the record for the best animated opening of all time and the biggest for a PG-rated film, the AP reports. Disney estimates Sunday that the film has earned $180 million in its first weekend in theaters. The previous animation record-holder was another Pixar sequel, Finding Dory, which had a $135 million launch in 2016. Incredibles 2 comes 14 years after The Incredibles and picks up right where the first film left off with the superhero family. Filling out the top five are Ocean's 8 ($19.5 million), Tag ($14.6 million), Solo: A Star Wars Story ($9.3 million), and Deadpool 2 ($8.6 million), Variety reports. (Read more box office stories.)
