Disney Breaks Studio Record With $4 Billion at Global Box Office

Walt Disney Studios is marking milestone after milestone.

For the first time in its history, Disney has broken the $4 billion mark at the worldwide box office. It previously reached a record high in mid November when “Thor: The Dark World” hammered past the $3.791 billion set in 2010.

Thanks to “Iron Man 3,” Disney became in July the first studio this year to reach $1 billion in the domestic BO (for the eight consecutive year). It grossed $2 billion in the worldwide box office, for the fourth year in a row, this August.

“Frozen” opened in theaters nationwide Wednesday and “Saving Mr. Banks” hits select theaters on Dec. 13 (expanding wide a week later) so the studio is sure to hit several more high notes in the new year. Meanwhile, “Thor: The Dark World” has grossed over $559 million in one month.
