    3 Reasons M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' Trailer Should Debut With 'Incredibles 2'

    No, all due respect to Blumhouse's The First Purge, the first trailer for Glass would be a most appropriate debut for the pre-trailer reel Walt Disney and Pixar's The Incredibles 2. Well, just for fun, here are three damn good reasons why Teen Titans Go to the Movies! The Incredibles 2, as opposed to Jurassic World 2 or Purge 4, is the best spot for such an offering. As you probably know, Unbreakable was a Hollywood Pictures release, which was a subdivision of sorts for Beuna Vista (Walt Disney) back when the Mouse House released a lot more adult movies alongside the likes of their animated fare and kid-targeted family movies.

    Comcast confirms £22 billion bid for Sky, sparking battle with Fox

    LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. media group Comcast (CMCSA.O) submitted a 22 billion pound bid for Sky (SKYB.L) on Wednesday, prompting the European pay TV group to drop its support for a lower offer from Rupert Murdoch's Twenty-First Century Fox (FOXA.O).

The bid formalises an offer first made in February and puts pressure on Fox, which already has a 39-percent stake in Sky, to raise the 10.75 pound per share cash offer it first announced in December 2016.
