During last night’s exhibition of superhuman abilities at the PyeongChang Winter Olympics, Disney Pixar unveiled a new sneak peak of this summer’s most anticipated animated film, The Incredibles 2, opening June 15, 2018.
Everyone’s favorite family of superheroes is back in “Incredibles 2” – but this time Helen (voice of Holly Hunter) is in the spotlight, leaving Bob (voice of Craig T. Nelson) at home with Violet (voice of Sarah Vowell) and Dash (voice of Huck Milner) to navigate the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life. It’s a tough transition for everyone, made tougher by the fact that the family is still unaware of baby Jack-Jack’s emerging superpowers. When a new villain hatches a brilliant and dangerous plot, the family and Frozone (voice of Samuel L. Jackson) must find a way to work together again—which is easier said than done, even when they’re all Incredible.

There’s just an informal “In Theaters” column this week as there is only one new wide release, and Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones in Just Getting Started is getting the kind of reviews that ensure that it never will. To recap, KT picked Coco and Justice League to stay #1 and #2 at the box office last weekend, and so they did, and so they shall again. James Franco’s The Disaster Artist did better in limited release than Episode VII did, but even in wide release this weekend is going to look the same as the previous two. Coco puts Disney on top three weeks in a row going into next week’s box office steamrolling by Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which should keep Disney on top at least another three. The mouse is ruling the box office until mid next-month.
Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week. There are no wide releases this week, but studios will be expanding previous wide releases like Ladybird and Darkest Hour and those in larger markets will have three new limited releases to peruse this weekend.

Toy Story 3 ends cinema’s most flawless trilogy with a scene that caused a literal worldwide outbreak of man tears. I’ve quoted this article before, but if you don’t believe me, The Telegraph did a piece on how the ending for Toy Story 3 was causing hordes of men around the globe to walk bleary-eyed into theater columns mourning the loss of the childhood friends. Why though? What is it about this simple scene of Andy giving Woody, Buzz, and the gang to a little girl roughly the age he was in Toy Story that punches us so hard? It’s loss. It’s grief. It’s a shared remembrance of these objects (who we knew could talk long before the first film), and how they’re totems of a sort for our childhood.
