Today, The Walt Disney Studios will break its previous global box office record of $3.791 billion, set in 2010.

"With incredible results from our Marvel, Disney and Pixar brands, this is a phenomenal achievement and we still have seven weeks and three exciting films to go this year," said Alan Bergman, president, The Walt Disney Studios. "What all of our films have in common is not only quality but great characters and universal stories that connect with people around the world, which is so important to us."

In July, Disney was the first studio to reach the $1 billion domestic box office milestone for the year, a threshold it has achieved for eight consecutive years. In August, in record time, Disney reached the $2 billion international box office threshold for the fourth year in a row, and in early November the studio surpassed its previous all-time international box office record of $2.302 billion, also set in 2010.

The announcement comes as Marvel's Thor: The Dark World continues to dominate the global box office. The film opened domestically November 8 with $85.7 million and has earned $348.5M million worldwide since beginning its international rollout October 30.

In addition to Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, the studio’s box office results this year have been led by Marvel's Iron Man 3, which opened domestically May 3 and has amassed over $1.21 billion to become the year's top-grossing film and the fifth highest-grossing film of all time; Disney•Pixar’s Monsters University, which opened June 21 and has earned over $744 million to become the year’s fourth highest-grossing film and Pixar’s third highest-grossing film ever; and Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful, which opened March 8 and has brought in over $493 million worldwide.

Still to come in 2013 are DreamWorks Studios' Delivery Man (Nov. 22), Disney's Frozen (Nov. 27), and Saving Mr. Banks (Dec. 13 limited; Dec. 20 wide).
