NEW YORK — Despite its heroes' diminutive size, Ant-Man and the Wasp opened with typical Marvel might at the box office, with an estimated $76 million in ticket sales.

According to studio estimates Sunday, the Ant-Man sequel easily surpassed the $57 million debut of the 2015 original in North America. The 20th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man and the Wasp comes on the heels of two mammoth Marvel successes this year: Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.

The two films that trailed Ant-Man at the weekend box office hit milestones. Disney's Incredibles 2 passed Finding Dory to become Pixar's top-grossing film domestically, not accounting for inflation. It earned $29 million in its fourth weekend.

With $28.6 million in its third weekend, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom crossed $1 billion worldwide.
