Pixar's Incredibles 2 has set a domestic preview box office record for an animated film earning $18.5 in Thursday night showings, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
That reported figure more than doubles Finding Dory's 2016 domestic record of $9.2m. THR projects Incredibles 2 will also break Finding Dory's all-time domestic box office record for an animated film of $136m, while Variety projects a domestic opening of up to $140m for Incredibles 2.
The first Incredibles film opened to $70.4m at the domestic box, going on to earn a domestic total of $261.4m (via BoxOfficeMojo), both figures unadjusted for inflation.
Incredibles 2 is in theaters now.
