It was announced today that Dr. Strange’s big weekend has pushed Disney across the $6 billion global box office mark for 2016. This is the first time in its history that Disney has eclipsed $6 billion and it aint over yet folks.
With Dr. Strange just starting out and almost sure-bet blockbusters Moana and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ready for release before the end of the year, Disney has plenty of box office success left in its tank for the remaining weeks of 2016. It will be interesting to see where they end up.
In case you were wondering, the record is the $6.89 billion Universal earned last year. Totally doable for Disney.
