The Walt Disney Studios has crossed the USD 1 billion mark at the domestic box office in a record time of 174 days.
Driven by the success of “Marvel’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron”, “Cinderella”, and the opening of Disney-Pixar’s latest animated entry “Inside Out”, Disney broke the previous 188-day record set on July 8, 2012, reported Deadline.
This marks the 10th consecutive year, and the 19th year overall that the studio has reached this milestone.
Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Age Of Ultron”, which has nabbed an estimated USD 450.4 million will enjoy its reign atop the domestic box office as the No 1 champ only for a few more days as “Jurassic World” is right behind it with USD 436.8 million, soon to take over this weekend.
With “Inside Out” crossing USD 100 million two days ago, the studio currently has three films still playing in the marketplace over that mark.
The studio’s “Cinderella” is expected to cross USD 200 million this weekend and soon will be in the Top Five highest grossers of this year so far.
