Zootopia Crosses $1 Billion at the Worldwide Box Office
Disney has had a dominant first half of the year at the box office, with the studio distributing three of the top 5 movies both domestically and worldwide. Captain America: Civil War currently leads both here in the states ($338.9 million) and overseas ($1.1 billion). Over the weekend, Disney's Zootopia also crossed $1 billion worldwide. However, Zootopia is currently fourth on the domestic charts with $337.2 million, behind the studio's third big hit this year, The Jungle Book ($347.7 million), 20th Century Fox's Deadpool ($362.9 million) and Captain America: Civil War.
Deadline reports that Zootopia earned an addition $4.4 million internationally to cross the $1 billion plateau. There have only been 26 movies in history that have crossed $1 billion, 11 of which have been distributed by Disney. Zootopia is also only the fourth animated movie to cross $1 billion, following Disney Pixar's Toy Story 3 ($1.06 billion), Universal's Minions ($1.1 billion) and Disney's Frozen ($1.2 billion). With Zootopia arriving on Blu-ray and DVD this week, it doesn't seem that it will make much more as its theatrical run comes to a close.
We also reported last month that Zootopia became the second highest-grossing original movie of all time, coming in far behind the all-time champ Avatar, which grossed $2.7 billion worldwide when it hit theaters in 2009. It also seems unlikely that it will move up any further on the domestic charts, but its domestic and international takes are certainly impressive. The movie has earned $662.8 million internationally, which represents roughly two-thirds of its worldwide take.
The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together-a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy.
Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery. The supporting voice cast includes Idris Elba, Jenny Slate, Nate Torrence, Bonnie Hunt, Don Lake, Tommy Chong, J.K. Simmons and Octavia Spencer. Zootopia will be available on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD formats on June 7.
