The theatrical run of long-awaited Pixar sequel "The Incredibles 2" has already been super, and now, the flick has hit yet another major box office milestone.
On Monday, "Incredibles 2" officially topped $1 billion at the global box office ($1.005 billion, to be exact), a staggering feat only accomplished three other times this year. (The first trio included sister Marvel releases "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War," as well as Universal's "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.") The sequel now stands at a jaw-dropping total of $574 million at the domestic box office, and $430 million internationally.
The second box office journey of the Parr family -- which took 14 years to make it to the big screen, following 2004's "The Incredibles" -- has been nothing short of, well, incredible since it hit theaters back in June. It scored the biggest domestic animated movie opening of all time (take that, "Finding Dory"), and became the first animated film ever to top $500 million in North America. It currently sits atop the all-time domestic animated chart, and at number nine among all domestic films.
It seems there's truly nothing these supers can't do. And the flick hasn't even opened yet in markets like Japan, Spain, Italy and Germany, where it's set to roll out in the coming weeks.
We have a feeling there just may be a third film in the works -- and audiences will almost certainly eat it up, whenever it may hit theaters.
