Disney hits $6 billion at global box office for the first time

 

 

Just a few short days ago, The Walt Disney Studios posted its biggest year of all time at the global box office, landing $5.851B to best the 2015 full-year record. Now, thanks to the spellbinding “Doctor Strange,” the Mouse has topped itself once again by speeding past the $6B mark — hitting it for the first time in the company’s history. As of today, Disney’s worldwide box office sits at $6.07B.

‘Doctor Strange’ Resuscitates Fall Box Office With $85M Opening, ‘Trolls’ Strong With $45.6M

 

This is only the second time in industry lore that a studio has levitated past the $6B threshold. Universal accomplished the feat in September last year, ending 2015 with a total $6.89B. There’s every chance that Disney could top that by the time the ledgers close on 2016. Still to come this year are Walt Disney Animation Studios “Moana” (November 23) and Lucasfilms “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” (December 16).

Currently, Disney’s fortunes are enjoying a tonic from Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” and its $325.4M global cume through Sunday. The movie is only in its first frame domestically, where it opened to $85M. Internationally, the cume is $240.4M with hefty hauls in China, Korea, the UK and Russia so far.

Elsewhere this weekend, “Finding Dory” put a fin past “Zootopia” to become the No. 2 release of 2016 at the global box office with $1.024B. The forgetful blue tang also now stars in the No. 4 animated movie of all time.
