Yesterday, The Walt Disney Studios broke the $4 billion mark at the global box office for the first time in its history.

The studio previously announced it had reached a record high on November 12, when it surpassed the $3.791 billion set in 2010. 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 ka row, and in early November the studio surpassed its previous all-time international box office record of $2.302 billion, also set in 2010.

Disney’s Frozen opens in theaters nationwide today. The film began an exclusive advance engagement at Disney’s El Capitan Theatre on November 22, earning $243,390 over three days for one of the highest opening theater averages of all time. Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks debuts in a limited engagement December 13 before expanding wide December 20. Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World continues its worldwide theatrical run and has earned over $559.1 million in four weeks.

In addition to Thor: The Dark World, Disney’s box office results 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.
