Walt Disney Pictures has announced that it has broken the $4 billion mark at the global box office this year for the first time in history, thanks in no small part to smash hits such Thor: The Dark World, Monsters University and Oz the Great and Powerful, not to mention 2013's highest-grossing movie Iron Man 3.
Disney's previous best year was 2010 when the studio pulled in $3.791 billion, while this marks the eighth consecutive year that the Mouse House has reached $1 billion in North America and the fourth consecutive year it has surpassed $2 billion internationally. The studio still has two other big releases in play this year in the CG-animated Frozen and live-action Saving Mr. Banks, which stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney himself.
