2019 Box Office: It’s Disney vs Everyone Else

If you look at the 2019 worldwide box office, one thing is very clear, it is Disney vs The World. In the last 24 hours, Both Aladdin and Spiderman: Far From Home have crossed the billion-dollar mark in the global box office. Now while Spiderman is technically distributed by Sony, the Marvel Studios imprint means that Disney very much had their fingerprints all over it.

The story for Disney at the box office has been record-breaking for the largest studio in the game. The top 5 highest-grossing movies this year all belong to Disney (top 6 if you include Spiderman). Avengers: Endgame recently broke the box office record for the highest-grossing movie of all time, beating Avatar which is now also owned by Disney. Captain Marvel passed the billion-dollar mark back in April and Toy Story 4 currently looks to fall just short of one billion dollars.

The live-action remake of the Lion King looks poised to break the billion-dollar mark as it has drawn over 700 million worldwide in just less than 2 weeks. Not only is Disney’s dominance clear, but they are not finished making potential billion-dollar hits this year.


Maleficent: Mistress of Evil with Angelina Jolie releases in October, Frozen 2 is set to release in November and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker comes out in December. Disney could very well have 8 films in 2019 to make a billion dollars and set a single-year record for a studio and there is nobody to stop them. The highest-grossing non-Disney related American film this year is How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World which drew 519 million at the box office. The Wandering Earth made 700 million dollars but that was a Chinese production.

With the exception of Toy Story 4, 2/3rds of the overall box office for all of Disney’s films this year has come from the overseas market with an average of 35% of their profits coming from the United States. Thanks to the global market, Disney is shifting towards complete domination of Hollywood and there doesn’t look to be any challengers who can stop them in sight.

  1. So you’re saying they won’t be doing any movies critical of the Chinese communists any time soon?

  2. The world is like a parasite where they have tried for centuries to compete with just the idea of the United States of American. The most fertile ground of this country had provided a leap into what the world could be if its people were unleashed and set free to create. The world has tried in vain to imitate, steal, and copy to no avail! Therefore, they spent the last 100 years infiltrating and destroying one by one the very institutions set here by GOD to free the people. We are now at a place were they have stolen the very educational institutions and corrupt the very government that provided the fertile ground in which the seeds of creation and achievements grew from. Jealous and prejudice countries have spent all their energies and resources to destroy the USA. The youth have been turned into propagandists and became unwitted dupes in the demise of this great land. The world could nor would they relinquish their stranglehold of their own peoples to allow them to grow! So, they set out to destroy the only great idea of beauty ever seen on this earth in our times! The USA. We must stand by Trump not because he is our savior but because he knows if our great nation fails so does he! He will go down with the ship and I do not want to be a Rat jumping ship!

    1. The ideal of the US of A is being attacked by the people inside it, not any external force. I was in college during the Vietnam war protests and got to experience real communist radicals. So communist that the Trotsky-ite groups would have battles on the street with the Leninists that would leave blood on the sidewalks. I got beat up and pushed around for trying to go to class during a “student strike” by Antifa’s grand dad. I should note I was a very poor student working nights to pay for tuition while the majority of those folks were the children of the leftist rich. The far left radicals formed a layer inside the student body and I remember thinking at the time that the future would be horribly puritanical and fascist given the qualities of the what would become the new “ruling class”. Those folks, or at least their students and followers, now occupy high places in politics, Hollywood and the universities. The rest follows automatically.

  3. They created a monopoly and ruined the movie industry , seriously our generation has no good movies . But 80s and 90s and even early 2000s were amazing
