It's rare, but it's certainly becoming less rare. 2012 being the extreme rare case with 4 films breaking the billion mark. 2013 so far only one, but one would think H:TDOS should break a billion, although forecasting is showing this film opening lower than H:AUJ even though it's getting better critical reviews.

Foreign box office and inflation have created more billion dollar films, and will continue to do so. 2015 Avengers AoU seems poised to rule the box office, but there will certainly be room for one or two others. We'll see what happens.
