Disney Breaks Huge Mark at Box Office Thanks to Marvel

Disney is once again the king of the box office. The House of Mouse crossed the $7 billion threshold at the global box office on December 9, marking the second time in history a studio surpassed that barrier.

Coincidentally, the only other time that it happened was last year when Disney reached $7.6 billion on the heels of a wildly successful year.

Disney’s followed up that mark with another record-breaking year that was led by the impressive performance by its Marvel Studios branch. Avengers: Infinity War alone accounted for over $2 billion while Black Panther and Ant-Man and the Wasp together accounted for another $2 billion. Incredibles 2, Solo: A Star Wars Story and the quickly rising Ralph Breaks the Internet also helped Disney reached the $7 billion figure.

In total, Disney was responsible for three of the top four movies of the year, all of which grossed over $1 billion. It’ll aim to possibly break its $7.6 billion record set last year with the continued success of Ralph Breaks the Internet this holiday season and the upcoming release of Mary Poppins Returns.
