As noted in a press release from Disney, the studio enjoyed its second highest year ever at the box office, with $4.35 billion in total ticket sales. The flush 12 months come on the heels of the studio’s record-breaking 2013, which saw $4.73 billion in global grosses. And yet the past two years might amount to chump change by this time next year.
Only two studios have ever topped $5 billion in global ticket sales: Warner Bros. in 2013 and Paramount in 2011. Disney could join those companies in 2015 … with just four of its films taken into account: “Cinderella,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Pixar’s “Inside Out” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Toss in an updated version of “The Jungle Book,” another Pixar movie (“The Good Dinosaur”) and what could be a franchise starter in Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland” with George Clooney, and the lineup looks near unstoppable. This is how deep things are: Steven Spielberg’s new movie, an untitled drama with Tom Hanks at the center, would count as one of Disney’s underdogs.
