Web desk(June 12, 2018): Disney is looking forward to break more records with the long-awaited return of a quirky animated superhero film, ‘Incredibles 2’. The film comes out on Friday, a full 14 years after the prequel ‘The Incredibles’ and looks set to score the highest debut ever for an animated film at the North American box office.
Experts are predicting a $140 million-plus opening weekend for Brad Bird’s sequel to his own hugely popular original, which would surpass the $135 million debut of its Disney-Pixar stablemate, “Finding Dory” (2016).“For a very long time, people have been wanting this film,” Samuel L. Jackson, who returns as superhero Frozone, told reporters.
In the latest adventure, Parr family matriarch Helen (Holly Hunter) is called upon to help bring the world’s hiding superheroes back into the open, while husband Bob (Craig T. Nelson) navigates the day-to-day heroics of being a homemaker.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.
It all goes a bit awry, as it always does, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens the world.There may be a 14-year gap, but the sequel starts about five seconds after the original ended, with the Parr family donning their superhero masks, ready to face the new threat.
Released in 2004, “The Incredibles” won the Oscar for best animated feature and grossed $633 million worldwide, posting one of the largest openings in history for an animated feature.
