It was only a matter of time: Disney has set an industry record for biggest global box-office haul in a single year.
The studio announced in a press release on Monday that it hit the $7 billion mark globally for 2016. It marks the first time a movie studio has reached that figure.
The new milestone comes amid a year of megahits and titles that overperformed. “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” opened to huge numbers globally last weekend (and is likely to dominate the box office for the rest of the year), both “Finding Dory” and “Captain America: Civil War” earned over $1 billion globally, and “The Jungle Book” (just under $1 billion globally) and “Zootopia” (over $1 billion globally) did much better than Disney expected.
This beats last year’s record-breaking year by Universal, which earned $6.89 billion globally thanks to its hits “Jurassic World,” “Furious 7,” and “Minions.”
