The weekend’s other major new release, The First Purge, debuted with an estimated $17.1 million for fourth place. It’s earned $31 million since opening Wednesday, July 4.

Disney’s Incredibles 2 came in second place with an estimated $29 million, bringing it past the $500 million domestic threshold. At $504.3 million domestic, the Pixar sequel has also become the first animated movie to ever cross this mark, and has become the highest-grossing animated movie of all time domestically, beating out another Pixar success, Finding Dory.

Incredibles 2 has had an amazing run both domestically and globally, earning the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated movie. It managed to earn more than $500 million worldwide late last month, and recently surpassed the original’s worldwide haul of $646.8 million.
