Superheroes are back to save the day — and the box office. Incredibles 2 will give the North American box office a nice boost this weekend as the Disney and Pixar animated superhero sequel is looking at a broad range between $125 million-$140 million when it bows at over 4,400 locations. A launch near the higher end of that estimate would earn the highly anticipated adventure the best opening weekend ever for an animated film.

That title currently belongs to another Pixar sequel, Finding Dory. The followup to 2003’s Finding Nemo launched in 2016 with $135 million and went on to pick up $486 million in North America and over $1 billion worldwide.

Like Finding Dory, enthusiasm has been strong for the sequel, which comes 14 years after its predecessor, The Incredibles. Early reception seems strong, as the film already boasts a 97% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. That’s on par with the acclaimed first film’s 97% average.
