Disney is back on top of the box office again as their latest Pixar adventure, Incredibles 2, debuted to the tune of $180 million.  This shatters Finding Dory's animation record of $135 million, set a couple of years ago.  It made an extra $51.5 million overseas for an early worldwide total of $231.5 million.

In other news for Disney, Avengers: Infinity War, crossed the $2 billion mark this weekend... and it surpassed Titanic's domestic gross of $659 million, to become the 4th highest film (domestically) of all time.

Ocean's 8 Nabs Top of the Box Office with $42 million

Ocean's 8, the gender swapped reboot/sequel/spinoff of the Ocean's 11 series easily took the top spot this weekend with $41.5 million.  This is technically the biggest opening for an Ocean's movie, ever. However, the last in the series, Ocean's 13, was 11 years ago. Yes, it's been eleven years already.

As for Solo: A Star Wars Story, it looks like it won't get the legs that it needs to become a success as both domestic and foreign box office has been slowing down.  It has a worldwide gross of $312.2 million... and might end up under the $400 million mark when all is said and done.

Disney, shouldn't cry too long as Avengers: Infinity War, is extremely close to passing the $2 billion mark ($1.998 billion) worldwide. It will become the 4th movie to do so, ever.

In other news, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, despite having mediocre buzz domestically, it opened to a huge $151 million overseas, which is a couple weeks ahead of it's domestic launch.  This will probably continue to do huge numbers overseas.

A few new movies hit theaters this June weekend.

Ocean's 8

Flop Factor: When they flipped the cast in the Ghostbusters reboot, it didn't fair too well (probably because the movie wasn't great).

Hereditary
Hit Factor: Flying under the radar with good reviews (92% Tomatometer)
Flop Factor: May be flying to under the radar, marketing-wise.

Solo Holds on to box office with $29.3 million

Solo: A Star Wars Story held on to the top spot at the box office this weekend with $29.3 million.  With the media blasting this movie for not doing well... it's no surprise it dropped 65% from last weekend.  With a domestic total of $148.9 million, it might become the lowest grossing Star Wars film since The Empire Strikes Back ($209.4 million), but that was from 1980. Solo's current worldwide gross stands at $264.2 million.

In other news, Avengers: Infinity War climbed to $1.965 billion worldwide, inching it's way to Star Wars: The Force Awakens' 3rd place finish of $2.068 billion. Don't know if it'll reach that milestone... well, have to wait and see.

Solo: A Star Wars Movie Nabs $83.3 million

Solo: A Star Wars movie easily took the top spot this weekend with $83.3 million. However, this number came in under expectations... It is the lowest opening for any of the Disney era Star Wars movies and... it's early overseas debut ($65 million) isn't faring much better.

Meanwhile, Disney's other franchise, Avengers: Infinity War, climbs to 7th place with $621.7 million domestically... just behind the first The Avengers movie. It has a good shot at climbing to 4th place just ahead of Titanic's $659.4 million when all is said and done, but may come up short of Black Panther's $698.6 million for 3rd. Worldwide, Infinity War has grossed $1.9 billion for 4th place... and may get close to 3rd place's Star Wars: The Force Awakens' $2.068 billion.
