The Incredibles 2 smashes box office record

In addition, that total gives Incredibles 2 the eighth biggest opening of all time and makes it the highest-ever weekend debut for a PG-rated title.

Jackie Aker, director of media relations for the Epilepsy Foundation, says her organization had never before called for a movie to issue a photosensitivity warning, but earlier this year asked Apple to change a promotional spot for the new iPad that had flashing lights that would be unsafe for certain viewers.

The opening weekend of Incredibles 2, the 8th-biggest of all-time, can be attributed not only to the pent-up demand for another film about the Parr superhero family, but also the demand for animated films themselves.

Their children Violet (Sarah Vowell) and Dash (Huck Milner) are back again, along with baby Jack-Jack, whose devastating super powers are about to be unleashed. While Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell and Samuel L Jackson reprise their voice-acting roles, Huck Milner, Bob Odenkirk, Catherine Keener and Jonathan Banks join the cast.

The early reviews have also been fantastic, scoring a very healthy 94% on Rotten Tomatoes from the USA critics.

Isla Fisher, Rashida Jones, Leslie Bigg, Brian Dennehy, Sebastian Maniscalco, Thomas Middleditch, and Lil Rel Howery also star in Tag, which was directed by Jeff Tomsic (Idiotsitter) based on a script from Rob McKittrick (The Brothers Solomon) and Mark Steilen (Hall Pass). The film has highly positive reviews. The movie came in just below expectations with $14.6 million.

Following its opening weekend in the US, "The Incredibles 2" is already smashing records, reportedly drawing in as much as $180 million (roughly £136 million) in a matter of days.
