A new all-time record will be set at the North American box office. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the impressive performance of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Monday, December 26, 2016, has generated cumulative box office sales in excess of $ 11.05 billion.
This dynamic leaves no doubt that the early forecasts, which promised American rental 11.3 billion by the end of the year, will come true. Recall that the previous record was recorded in 2015 and amounted to $ 11.1 billion.
Of course, such an impressive result was achieved mainly due to the efforts of the Walt Disney company and all its divisions. They have two of the most successful movie projects of 2016 - "The First Avenger 3: Confrontation". "Finding Dory", which earned over $ 400 million at home. Outlaw, The Jungle Book and Zootopia have earned over $ 300 million.
It is also worth noting the impressive collection of Universal's cartoon "The Secret Life of Pets", which has grossed $ 368 million in North America, which put it in third place overall at the time of this writing. Most likely, there will still be changes in the ranking over the last few days.
