October 17, 2016 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Disney is having a very good year. The Walt Disney Studios announced today that they’ve set a box office record for international grosses with $3.566 billion through October 16th. That surpasses last year’s record-breaking $3.565 billion. The milestone comes with two and a half months still to go and a few major blockbusters yet to release, namely Doctor Strange on November 4th (with an international rollout starting on October 25th), Moana on November 23rd and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16th.

The majority of the international grosses have come through Captain America: Civil War ($745 million internationally, $1.15 billion worldwide), Zootopia ($682.3 million internationally, $1.023 billion worldwide), The Jungle Book ($602.3 million internationally, $966 million worldwide) and Finding Dory ($525.9 million internationally, $1.011 billion worldwide). The grosses also include international receipts from Star Wars: The Force Awakens which brought in $454.2 million of its $1.13 billion overseas after the new year.
