With two months to go and before the release of “Moana” and “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” Walt Disney Studios has posted its biggest year ever at the global box office with $5.85 billion through November 1st this year – surpassing last year’s $5.84 billion across all of 2015.
Disney has set several records this year, becoming the fastest studio to hit $2 billion domestic (July 16th), $3 billion international (July 6th), and $5 billion global (July 10th).
Disney holds the industry’s top four global, top three international, and top two domestic releases of 2016. “Captain America: Civil War,” “Zootopia” and “Finding Dory” all crossed the $1 billion mark globally with “The Jungle Book” coming in just shy at $966 million. A further $736 million came from the first-quarter run of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”.
Reviews have also been stellar, the five films scoring an average Rotten Tomatoes score of 94% and a uniform ‘A’ CinemaScore.
