So far for 2014, Disney reached $4 Billion at the global box office. Disney also topped $4 Billion last year, but this year they have reached it two weeks sooner! This puts Disney in second place in the market share behind 20th Century Fox.

Disney said that the biggest contributors to its 2014 numbers were Marvel films “Guardians of the Galaxy” ($770 million), “Maleficent” ($758 million), the 2013 released “Frozen” ($733 million), and “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” ($714.7 million).

Disney has one more major movie due to be released this year, its big screen adaption of the Broadway classic “Into the Woods.” It will open in the United States on Christmas day.
