Box Office Mojo has released the cumulative receipts for the entire year of 2016, and Pixar’s fish-and-Sigourney-Weaver-related sequel came out #1. Finding Dory, the sequel to the 2003 classic Finding Nemo and centered around Ellen DeGeneres’ forgetful flounder, earned $486,295,561 for Pixar and Disney, plenty of scratch to forget they ever made The Good Dinosaur.
Following close behind at #2 is Rogue One, which nearly caught up to Finding Dory despite the latter’s six-month lead over it. It earned $439,714,705 in 2016 alone, and following that is another Disney movie, Captain America: Civil War at $408,084,349. Disney owned the top three spots last year; you only see another studio when you get to #4 and The Secret Life Of Pets at $368,384,330.
The rest of the Top Ten read as follows: The Jungle Book with $364,001,123, Deadpool with $363,070,709, Zootopia with $341,268,248, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice with $330,360,194, Suicide Squad with $325,100,054, and Doctor Strange with $230,293,310.
Disney shattered a record in 2016, becoming the first studio to earn more than $7 billion globally in one year.
