Majors that make money
7 minutes ago Disney has been the studio to beat at the box office and for the last three years, nobody has been able to do it. In 2018, Disney set a domestic box office record with a take of $3.092 billion, largely thanks to the fact that it had half of the top 10 movies of the year, including Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, and Incredibles 2, in the top three slots. Of course, it could have been an even bigger year, but not every Disney movie was a massive hit. The biggest disappointment for Disney in 2018 was, without a doubt, Solo: A Star Wars Story. The film barely broke the $200 million mark domestically and came up just short of $400 million around the world. While those numbers would be solid, even great, for most movies, they're a franchise low for the Star Wars brand. While the movie was the tenth highest grossing movie of the year domestically, when you're talking about Star Wars, that's low. On top of the lower than usual box office take, you have the fact … [Read more...] about Disney Hit A Box Office Record, But Which Movies Didn’t Make Money?
Ahoy, mateys! Disney is still putting together their Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, and while we know very little about the project itself, we do know that Johnny Depp is getting the old heave-ho. Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow is not expected to return, and his departure is going to save the House of Mouse enough loot to fill up several treasure chests. While Depp fans may be disappointed about this, Disney is likely happy to set sail without him, and save some of their precious booty in the process. For the longest time, Johnny Depp was considered a major selling-point for the Pirates of the Caribbean films. The thought of making one without him seemed almost crazy. Things have changed, however. Depp has had some negative press surrounding him in recent years, and now Disney feels pretty confident to move forward without him. And there’s a very good reason for that: money. According to Forbes, making a new Pirates movie without Johnny Depp is going to knock at … [Read more...] about ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Reboot Will Save Disney Millions by Making Johnny Depp Walk the Plank
Movie News & Reviews Felicity Jones makes a case for Oscar nod with ‘On the Basis of Sex’ By RICK BENTLEY Tribune News Service ORDER REPRINT → December 24, 2018 03:00 AM The life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been the subject of numerous books, news articles, TV programs and feature films. One of the most noted was presented through the documentary "RBG" by Julie Cohen and Betsy West. It earned high praise when it was released in May and topped out at the box office in the United States with a scant bit more than $14 million. That's good money for a documentary, but shows that only a small fraction of filmgoers will watch one in theaters. "On the Basis of Sex" – a film that also deals with Ginsburg's life – has a far better chance of drawing a larger audience. While it presents the valuable facts and moments that have made Ginsburg one of the most important women of the past century, … [Read more...] about Felicity Jones makes a case for Oscar nod with ‘On the Basis of Sex’
