Boss Level Review 'It’s a ton of bloody fun & entertaining'

#Incredibles2 Opens Huge

Pixar's latest, a long-awaited sequel to one of its most popular and best movies, is proving to be... what's the word... it's not coming to us... Really amazing at the Stateside box office. Incredibles 2 soared, blasting past expectations for $180 million, according to studio estimates.

And elsewhere in the world, it was a similar story. While the movie, which picks up the story the moment the 2004 original ends, hasn't opened in all of its international markets yet, it still earned $51.5 million for a $231.5 million global launch. Records were predictably shattered, with the new movie outselling the previously top animated opening, Finding Dory. We doubt Disney and Pixar are too upset.

Ocean's 8 was knocked down to second place on $19.5 million, while the second new arrival of the week, comedy pic Tag couldn't quite reach the heights of the animated hit. The movie took in $14.6 million for third. In fourth, Solo: A Star Wars Story earned $9 million, with Deadpool 2 adding $8.8 million to round out the top five.

In sixth, chiller Hereditary added a few screens and earned $7 million, ahead of the week's third new entry, Superfly, which didn't live up to its title. It made $6.3 million.

Avengers: Infinity War, finally feeling the pressure of more superhero competition, slipped to eighth on $5.2 million, but has already passed $2 billion worldwide. Adrift sank to ninth with $2.1 million, while Book Club dropped to 10th and $1.8 million.

Sex Tape Review: Overly Sexual, Rude, Vulgar, and Absolutely Hilarious

The raunchy Sex Tape will divide audiences and critics, but who cares? Sex Tape suggests a growing practice among loving partners: that of making a raunchy testament of their escapades for posterity. But what happens when that evidence gets seen by friends, neighbors, and even the mailman? This is the plot that pits Jay (Jason Segel) and Annie (Cameron Diaz) in an effort to secure every iPad gift Jay has given, his record company playlists being the envy of the recipients, but which has also inadvertently spread the video to every device. The reason for the act - termed in the movie as pulling "the full Lincoln " for its three-hour length - stems from the couple's non-existent social life, brought on by the constant demands of their children. The couple has a lot to lose: a burgeoning business relationship between Annie and Hank (Rob Lowe) could end if the iPad she's given to Hank exposes the video, and so the couple sets out to reclaim and wipe the incrim
