10 Things That Happened The Last Time 'The Incredibles' Was In Cinemas
We feel so old!
OMG guys, can you believe it's been 14 years since 'The Incredibles' first came out way back in 2004?!
The much-loved movie left fans wanting more and we've filled the seemingly endless years of waiting by rewatching it over and over again. This author can totally recite the entirety of Frozone's "WHERE'S MY SUPERSUIT?!" conversation from memory btw. ;)
Years and years of whining and complaining later, our LONGGGGG wait for a sequel is now finally almost over! Disney/Pixar's 'Incredibles 2' is set to hit local cinemas on 14 June 2018. Check out the trailer below:
Everyone's favourite family of superheros is back! This time, it's Elastigirl who's in the spotlight, leaving Mr. Incredible at home to handle his toughest mission yet - taking care of Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. But when a new villain rises, the family and Frozone must find a way to work together again and save the day.
The wait has seriously been too damn long! To put things into perspective, check out these other things that happened when 'The Incredibles' first aired in cinemas:
1. Pak Lah was serving his second year as our prime minister
He had just taken over the position from Tun M the year before and went on to win a significant victory at GE11.
2. 8TV was launched and TV3 celebrated its 20th anniversary
8TV first started airing on 8 January 2004, replacing MetroVision that had closed four years prior. Later in the year, TV3 celebrated its 20th anniversary on 18 June 2004 by broadcasting for 24 hours.
3. Post-SPM Malaysian teenagers went for National Service (NS) for the first time
The pilot batch began their training in camps all over Malaysia in February 2004 and two additional batches followed after in mid-March 2004.
4. We officially started using the polymer RM5 banknotes
The new banknotes featured added security features and lasted longer as they were more durable, non-porous, more resistant to dirt and liquid and not easily torn.
5. Hit local movie 'Puteri Gunung Ledang' was released
It was a major box office success in Malaysia and is especially notable for receiving critical acclaim, picking up a couple international awards and inspiring a hit musical of the same name.
6. Facebook was launched and MySpace turned one
Thefacebook, as it was known back then, was officially registered on 4 February 2004, but was only open to students of Harvard University. It only became accessible to the general public in 2006.
But tbh, we didn't care about FB at all back then. We were all still asking each other for testimonials on Friendster and obsessing over our Myspace layouts lol.
7. Britney Spears got married twice
The first was an impromptu wedding in Vegas to a childhood friend, and the second was to Kevin Federline, the future father of her two sons.
8. Green Day's 'American Idiot' was one of the biggest albums of the year
If you were a teenager growing up in the 00s, you definitely rocked out to this album! It sold 16 million copies worldwide and had five hit singles on it: 'American Idiot', 'Boulevard of Broken Dreams', 'Holiday', 'Wake Me Up When September Ends', and 'Jesus of Suburbia'. Ahh those fond memories of screaming our lungs out at karaoke.
9. James Blunt, Franz Ferdinand, and Keane released their highly successful debut albums
James Blunt's 'Back to Bedlam' contained 'You're Beautiful', one of the biggest summer hits of that year, Franz Ferdinand's self-titled album received universal critical acclaim, and Keane's 'Hopes and Fears' launched the English alternative rock band to international fame and success.
10. 'Friends' and 'Sex and the City' aired their series finales
We said goodbye to two of the most popular TV shows of all time in 2004 :(
'Sex and the City' was first, ending its six season run in February, while 'Friends' aired the last episode of its tenth season a couple months later in May. But at least we'll always have reruns and Netflix!
It's been a loooong time since 2004 and we may be all grown up now but we still can't wait to finally watch Disney/Pixar's 'Incredibles 2'! Don't forget to catch it in cinemas nationwide from 14 June 2018 onwards.
