Incredibles 2 continues its record-breaking run with yet another major milestone: Disney and Pixar’s latest has scored the biggest Tuesday haul of all time for a film released in June.
The previous record holder was Universal’s Jurassic World with $24.3 million on June 16, 2015. Incredibles 2 topped that yesterday with $26.9 million, the sixth best Tuesday ever. The Brad Bird-directed animated feature has so far grossed an estimated $233.1 million at the North American box office
The sequel to the 2004 classic, Incredibles 2 recently set a new record for the biggest preview gross of all time for an animated feature. The film centers on Elastigirl’s own adventure while Bob stays at home to watch over Jack-Jack, picking up immediately after the original as the Parr family faces off against a supervillain known as The Underminer.
Brad Bird wrote and directed the film. The animated sequel features the return of Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, Violet, Dash, Jack-Jack and Frozone along with the addition of numerous new characters.
Incredibles 2 is now playing in theaters. The film’s synopsis can be found below.
“In The Incredibles 2, Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell), Dash (voice of Huck Milner) and baby Jack-Jack—whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) by their side. That’s what makes this family so Incredible.”

Nelson as Bob Parr/Mr. Incredible, Sarah Vowell as Violet Parr, Huck Milner as Dashiell “Dash” Robert Parr, Samuel L. Jackson as Lucius Best/Frozone, Brad Bird as Edna Mode, Bob Odenkirk as Winston Deavor, Catherine Keener as Evelyn Deavor, Sophia Bush as Voy, Jonathan Banks as Rick Dicker, Isabella Rosellini as The Ambassador and John Ratzenberger as The Underminer.
10 Marvel Characters Who Can Replace Iron Man After ‘Avengers 4’
He may not be the most powerful hero, but Iron Man is clearly the heart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His first solo film in 2007 kick-started the shared universe and directly led to the Avengers joining forces on the big screen. After starring in three solo movies and playing prominent roles in three other Marvel films, now seems like an appropriate time for Iron Man, or at least for Tony Stark, to slowly bow out of the spotlight.
Ever since The Avengers, Stark has been obsessed with the bigger threat out in the Universe. Well, Thanos finally launched his primary attack in Avengers: Infinity War and Iron Man is going to have to think creatively to save the universe. Rumors have been pointing for years that Robert Downey Jr. is ready to say goodbye to the Marvel Universe, but if that happens, Marvel will have to send Iron Man out in style. Whether he sacrifices himself to resurrect the universe or just stalls Thanos long enough for Doctor Strange to save the day, the potential loss of Tony Stark will leave a giant, Iron Man-sized hole in the MCU that will desperately need filling.
