Well, that didn’t take long. Just days after Fox announced it was the first studio to cross the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office this year, the studio said today it has pushed past $3 billion in worldwide box office gross. Fox reached that number in record time, second only to 2010, when it crossed the milestone on June 30. Internationally, Fox crossed the $2 billion mark yesterday — the first studio to reach the milestone in 2014.

The announcement comes as Fox begins to wrap up its spring/summer slate. The run began with Fox Searchlight Pictures’ The Grand Budapest Hotel, which has earned more than $168 million worldwide. In April, Fox delivered a pair of hits with Blue Sky Studios’ Rio 2 ($490 million worldwide to date) and 20th Century Fox’s The Other Woman ($195 million global gross, and counting). X-Men: Days Of Future Past, released in May, has become the highest-grossing picture in the franchise, amassing over $735 million globally to date. The next month, the studio released Fox 2000’s The Fault In Our Stars which has grossed $243 million worldwide.

Also in June, Twentieth Century Fox released How To Train Your Dragon 2, from DreamWorks Animation. The second film in the trilogy has earned over $366 million in worldwide box office, with many International markets yet to open. And last weekend came Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which opened to $104 million global tally, including a huge $72.6 million domestically. The film took the No. 1 market share position in 26 countries and the film has grossed $132 million to date on the way to its second weekend in release.
