$180M opening puts animated ‘Incredibles 2’ in record books

Disney has asked all movie theaters showing the long-awaited "Incredibles 2" to include a strobe light warning for people with epilepsy after viewers voiced their concern on social media about certain scenes, Variety reports.

The Disney and Pixar film premiered to an estimated $180 million at the domestic box office this weekend. As if that wasn't impressive enough, however, that now gives the film the biggest domestic debut ever for an animated movie - not adjusted for inflation - overtaking previous record holder, Finding Dory, a fellow Pixar film, which opened to $135.1 million two years ago.
