I was among the members of the press invited last September to the Atlanta set of Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp. During our set visit, we interviewed director Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas -- as well as key production personnel -- about making the the Marvel sequel.

Coming in during the lucrative Father's Day weekend, Incredibles 2 earned $180 million in the domestic market across 4,410 theaters, according to Variety. The previous record was held by Finding Dory, another one of Pixar's sequels that took forever to come out, which earned $135 million in its opening weekend in 2016.
Incredibles 2 also became eighth largest domestic opening of all time, overtaking another one of Disney's films for the spot: last year's Beauty and the Beast, which netted $174.6 million during its debut weekend.

The footage in question involves rapidly flashing lights and occurs multiple times throughout the film, one sequence lasting over half a minute. The viral thread in question was started by Twitter user Veronica Lewis (@veron4ica) and detailed the various scenes filled with strobing lights that could "cause issues for people with epilepsy, migraines, and chronic illness."
