Give Jack-Jack all the money!
That's the word from Deadline, quoting Fandango's latest figures on "The Incredibles" sequel.
"Incredibles 2" is pacing to beat the pre-sales of "Finding Dory," "Wonder Woman," "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and "Suicide Squad" -- all successful summer releases.
It helps to leave fans wanting more, and the 14-year wait for an "Incredibles" sequel seems to have stoked appetites.
Deadline reports that the most ambitious estimates for "Incredibles 2" put its opening in the $140 million range, which would break the record $135 million opening for "Finding Dory."
Pre-sales don't always tell the story, and can be false leads -- as they were for "Solo: A Star Wars Story." But it's telling that "Incredibles 2" premiered earlier this week for critics and fans and the reaction was very positive. If "Incredibles 2" gets good reviews -- and it most likely will -- it will probably make or possibly even break the box office projections. That wasn't the case for "Solo," which opened to lukewarm reviews.
But! Hopefully Disney-Pixar doesn't take that to mean they should greenlight more sequels or spinoffs right away. The lesson should be that less -- or at least less frequent -- brings more.
"Incredibles 2" opens in theaters June 15.
