Disney and Pixar’s Incredibles 2 has jumped the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. It is the seventh animated film to achieve the milestone, bringing Disney’s total tally to five, not adjusted for inflation.
And Incredibles 2 is the fourth title of 2018 to join the billion-dollar club so far after Disney and Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War ($2.044 billion) and Black Panther ($1.346 billion) and Universal’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom ($1.237 billion).
The Incredibles sequel, returning Brad Bird in the director’s chair, has grossed $574 million domestically and $430.9 million internationally for a global tally of $1.005 billion through Monday. In North America, the continuing adventures of a family of superheroes is the top-grossing animated film of all time, not adjusted for inflation.
