  Incredible opening for Pixar film
Updated 08 November 2004, 20.43
The Incredibles sold loads of tickets in the US
The Incredibles sold a superhero-sized $70.7m (38.1m) of tickets in its first weekend on release in the US.

The latest animated movie from Pixar, who also made Toy Story and Finding Nemo, made more money than the rest of the top 10 films added together.

But that total may have been boosted a bit by the trailer for another massive movie - Star Wars Episode III.

It showed before The Incredibles in lots of cinemas and some Star Wars fans may have bought tickets just to see it.

Even so it's still the most successful opening ever by a Pixar film, just edging out Finding Nemo by $0.3m.

Shrek 2 is the biggest animated film ever

But that's still someway short of the biggest animated film ever - Shrek 2.

It took $108m (58.3m) on its first weekend in the US and eventually sold more than $400m worth of tickets there.
