WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Incredibles 2 romped atop the chart with a stunning 180MM; it's the best opening weekend for an animated film ever (beating Finding Dory) and the eighth best opening weekend ever (the third best of 2018). It grossed only 51MM overseas, but did not open in many markets due to the World Cup. Can it make 500MM with another Jurassic World coming Friday? Now that's a cliff-hanger. Ocean's 8 places with 19.6MM on a 53 percent drop, on track with Ocean's 13, but will that be enough to continue trying to revive the franchise? Tag shows with 14.6MM against a 28MM budget, and is probably disappointing. Solo drops to the fourth sloy with 9MM on a 42 percent drop that's not bad when losing over a thousand screens, but this one still has to hurt Disney, even as it celebrates Pixar's smash. Deadpool 2 rounds out the Top Five with 8.8MM; it's close to 300MM now, but that's considerably less than the 363MM the original made -- was it the release date, or has the novelty worn off? Hmm.
