Incredibles 2 Will Be Way More Successful Than (Some) Think

I don’t usually dive into the prediction game, but this year I’m feeling uniquely compelled to weigh in on the box office future of Incredibles 2, a Pixar film some are strangely underestimating as we close in on Summer 2018.

Will it be #1 for the whole summer? Not necessarily, thanks to Avengers: Infinity War. But here’s my breakdown on how I envision the summer playing out in general, from Deadpool 2 to Solo. Spoiler alert: it involves Disney making way more money than everyone else. In part thanks to Pixar’s latest sequel based off of one of their most beloved movies.

Every Pixar Film Ranked By Their Box Office Success

From Toy Story to Finding Dory, which Pixar movies found the most financial success with audiences? 

A few years ago, I did a ranking just like this in the year leading up to Inside Out. It was simple: I took the worldwide box office returns for each Pixar movie and adjusted for inflation, though I measured the numbers according current rates of inflation (2014 at the time). A faulty metric, now that I take a second look.

Honestly, it’s hard to rank these movies on the same playing field, because so many circumstances determined their profits. 3D ticket sales and a widening international market make it harder to define which Pixar movies were more “successful” than others based on their own terms and fair context.

So this time, I’m only looking at two factors: domestic box office and a rate of inflation with 1995, the year that Toy Story came out. So all of the numbers you’re about to see bolded are NOT the actual numbers you’ll find online, but rather they’ve been modified to match what they were worth 22 years ago. UPDATE: I’ve since added Cars 3 and Coco to this list. 

Let’s start at the bottom of the list this time with…

The Key To Everything That’s Great Right Now

It’s pretty simple really. Everything good we’ve been getting our hands on lately boils down to one concept, whether we’re talking about the social media boom, the advent of streaming television, or even the gaming revolution.

The key to the evolution of entertainment and connectivity?

User-generated content. Self-publishing. The impact of the individual.

This concept of the individual being empowered by the marketplace is the reason we have authors publishing their e-books without major publishers tampering with their work. Two guys can get together with some engineers and create something like “Words With Friends.” I can watch an incredibly entertaining show like House of Cards on Netflix with no commercials.

When content creators like you or me have the power to set the rules, the best work comes out. It’s the reason why us iPhone users are obsessed with iFunny. It’s the reason why I find myself obsessed with discovering new music with Spotify. It’s even why something as ludicrous as Snapchat is becoming an obsession for many people (like myself.)

Put simply, user-generated content is the key to a good experience. Luckily, groups of resourceful people across the globe are exploiting this beautifully.
