"Incredibles 2" brought in 51.5 million dollars internationally this weekend, pushing its world cume to 231.5 million dollars through Sunday.

These insane numbers also make Incredibles 2 the 8th biggest opener in cinema's history.

That record belonged to another Pixar film, "Finding Dory", which opened to roughly $135 million two summers ago. The film, which stars the vocal talents of Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter and Samuel L. Jackson, is the third largest opening of the year.

Veronica writes that "Incredibles 2" is "filled with tons of strobe/flashing lights", and explained that people with photosensitive epilepsy aren't the only ones who could be affected - those who suffer from migraines, vision impairments, seizure conditions, vertigo (specifically flicker vertigo), autism, ADHD, and PTSD could also experience a reaction to the images.

The early reviews have also been fantastic, scoring a very healthy 94% on Rotten Tomatoes from the U.S. critics.

But now with the success of "Incredibles 2", and films like Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and the live action Winnie the Pooh film, "Christopher Robin" on the docket for the rest of the summer, the House of Mouse looks back on track at the box office.

Landing in second place is "Ocean's 8", which picked up an additional $19.5 million domestically in its second weekend, for a domestic total of $79 million.

The film stars Bullock as Debbie Ocean, sister of Danny Ocean (originally played by George Clooney), as she assembles a gang of talented women to plan a seemingly impossible diamond heist from the Met Gala in NY.

Sony's "Superfly" remake has earned $5.865 million from 2,220 North American locations since its Wednesday premiere, including $1.87 million on Friday.
