Coming Soon reports that Warner Bros. Pictures has earned $5 billion in worldwide box office this year, the second time in its history that it hit that milestone. It’s also the eighth time in the last nine years it went over $4 billion.

This was due to the success of a variety of films in 2017, with five of them getting over $500 million worldwide. These include Kong: Skull Island (with Legendary Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures), Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, IT (with New Line Cinema) and Justice League, which is currently at $574 million worldwide and rising. Three other films earned over $250 million, including The LEGO Batman Movie (with Lego System A/S), Annabelle: Creation (with New Line Cinema) and Blade Runner 2049 (with Sony Pictures).

Sue Kroll, President, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures, said “We are thrilled to reach this extraordinary benchmark as we come to the end of an amazing, record-setting year. Surpassing five billion dollars in a single year can only happen with an incredible level of hard work across all theatrical divisions, as well as the invaluable contributions of the many talented filmmakers and actors with whom we are so fortunate to collaborate. Congratulations to everyone who shares in this success.
