"Incredibles 2" looks to save Disney's day at the box office.

NEW YORK — The acclaimed Pixar sequel “Incredibles 2” has passed $1 billion in worldwide ticket sales, making it Disney’s third film this year to cross the box-office milestone.

Disney said Tuesday that Brad Bird’s summer blockbuster reached $1 billion on Monday, about six weeks after debuting with $182.7 million at North American theaters. That opening set a new record for animated releases, and “Incredibles 2” has steadily climbed the history books.

Not accounting for inflation, its domestic haul of $574 million ranks as the ninth biggest North American gross of all-time.

“Incredibles 2” follows Disney’s “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” in reaching $1 billion this year. Disney releases account for exactly half of the 36 films to ever cross $1 billion globally.
