Disney Breaks Industry Record At Domestic Box Office

Doctor Strange Iron Man Box Office Total

Disney has officially broken another box office record this year and continues its domination of ticket sales in 2016. Disney has crossed $2.49 billion at the domestic box office, beating the previous record set of $2.45 billion set by Universal last year.

The records continue not only domestically but overseas, as well. Disney has just crossed $4B for the first time in the history of the studio. Helping Disney cross these milestones both domestically and internationally was Marvel’s Doctor Strange, which just crossed the $600M mark.

These records have already been collected before one of Disney’s biggest properties is released, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The film is already gaining a positive reaction and fan anticipation is reaching new highs with pre-ticket sales.

Earning big this year for Disney included, Finding Dory, Zootopia, The Jungle Book, and Captain America: Civil War. Many 2016 records are already held by Disney, they have become the quickest studio to hit $2 billion domestically, $3 billion overseas and $5 billion in total.

Looking ahead to 2017, Disney has another chance to outpace their own records. They have Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming (with Sony)Cars 3 from Pixar, not to mention Star Wars Episode VIII.
