Major movie production companies like Universal Pictures, Disney, and Warner Bros. have earned their fare share of success in the global box office with a string of movies and TV shows that have performed spectacularly in theaters around the world, but there’s always one company that ups the others, and the structuring of that company plays a huge part in it.
Disney’s strict bureaucratic structure and planning model has caused problems for the company in the decision-making areas, effectively causing said decision-making to be slow. Warner Bros. is struggling with own red tape struggles with movies that it wants to release. Universal Pictures, on the other hand, has been upped their game ever since 2019 when it passed Disney in the global box office, and it has made a new mark in that area yet again.

To start it off, Jurassic World Dominion has earned a whopping $974.5 million in global box office sales, being the second-highest grossing movie of the year worldwide. Minions:The Rise of Gru, which was also kind of a meme (Gentleminions meme) before its release, also grossed an amazing $790.4 million to date.
Following the two top dogs in the list is The Bad Guys, with an impressive $246.8 million earnings, followed by The Black Phone at $152.7 million earnings.
