Playing video games all day can make you some serious cash. In fact, some professional gamers make so much money that one financial adviser has built his entire business around telling them how to spend and save. Galen Herbst de Cortina, 29, spends 10 to 15 hours per week playing games like Faster Than Light, Celeste, Hearthstone and RimWorld.
Hollywood's push for greater access to China's booming film market - delayed since last year - has become tangled in broader trade talks between Washington and Beijing, a potentially thorny position amid whipsawing trade relations. Negotiations to raise a Chinese quota on imported films and boost the share that overseas producers get of box office takings are now being discussed within the broader framework of a U.S.-China trade stand-off, four industry sources said. The shift from earlier talks is a double-edged sword for U.S. producers looking at China's $8.6 billion (6.38 billion pounds) cinema market.
Marvel's superhero team-up movie has become a worldwide phenomenon, pointing to a broader shift at the House of Mouse.
Disney's Hollywood Studios was the media giant's only theme park to have a decline in attendance in 2017. That will change in 2018 and beyond.

The new permits make way for the theme park giant to make new land available for construction.
Avengers: Infinity War earned another $3.4 million on its 21-st day of domestic release. Partnered with another $13m overseas (not yet counting whatever it made in China on Friday), that’s a new $1.136 billion overseas cume and a $1.702.8b worldwide total heading into the weekend. By today or tomorrow, Avengers 3 will be the third-biggest overseas grosser of all time.
Solo: A Star Wars Story screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan made news yesterday via The Huffington Post when discussing his assertion that Donald Glover's Lando Calrissian is pansexual, specifically in terms of his sexuality affinity for (at least) human women and female robots (his droid co-pilot, voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge). To be fair, Kasdan was answering a specific question from interviewer Bill Bradley, so it's not necessarily the same as declaring to the world that Lando is a member of the LGBTQIA community without offering any onscreen evidence of such. The "he's bi when you're not looking" tease is just another example of filmmakers openly admitting to penning gay or bi characters in their big-scale tentpoles without those characters actually acting gay (or merely being gay) in the movies in question.
Walt Disney (DIS) posted its fiscal 2Q18 results on May 8, and the company delivered better-than-expected revenues and earnings. Of the 25 analysts covering Disney, 14 analysts rated the stock as a “buy,” while ten analysts gave the stock a “hold” rating. One analyst gave the stock a “sell” rating.
On May 9, Walt Disney (DIS) had a market capitalization of ~$149 billion, higher than peers Netflix (NFLX) and Comcast (CMCSA), which have market caps of ~$144 billion and ~$141 billion, respectively. In the media space, this metric for Time Warner (TWX) and Dish Network (DISH) reached ~$72.3 billion and ~$14.5 billion, respectively, on the same date.
Suzanne Scott, the longtime programming chief of Fox News, has been named chief executive of the top-rated cable news channel in an executive reorganization. The promotion of Ms. Scott comes as part of broader changes throughout Fox News-parent 21st Century Fox in advance of the company’s proposed sale of the bulk of its entertainment assets to Walt Disney Co. Jack Abernethy, who was co-president, will exit the channel but remain in a senior position at 21st Century Fox as CEO of the Fox Television Stations Group.
Every segment of the media giant beat its targets for the first quarter, but two key issues hang over the House of Mouse.
When Disney opened its nature-themed Animal Kingdom park in Orlando, Florida in 1998 it went to great pains to point out that it was not a zoo. Sure, it has plenty of animals, most notably in its 110-acre Kilimanjaro Safaris attraction which alone is larger than Disney’s fairytale-themed Magic Kingdom park in Orlando. Animal Kingdom is home to more than 2,000 animals spanning 300 species of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians but Disney didn’t want to just put them on show.
For those keeping track, Keanu Reeves' John Wick: Chapter 3 (or whatever it ends up being titled) opens in domestic release one year from today. The unlikely trilogy was the result of an all-too-rare sleeper hit in this preordained tentpole industry, as well as further evidence of Keanu Reeves' ability to periodically create new wholly original characters that capture at least a portion of the zeitgeist. And the franchise has gone from a late-October release to a Presidents Day offering to a third flick opening on one of the best weekends of the summer. The first film was co-directed by Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, so it's a little ironic that this year the key pre-Memorial Day weekend frame is home to David Leitch's Deadpool 2 while next year it will be home to Chad Stahelski's John Wick 3.

Avengers: Infinity War earned another $4.2 million (-30% from Tuesday) to bring its cume to $562.9m in just 20 days of domestic release. At a glance, it’s going to end its third week of domestic play with around $567m, still the second-biggest 21-day total between Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($548m) and Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($770m). The overseas figures are about the same as before, with $7 million overseas and around $9m in China for around $1695.5m worldwide.

In 1939, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs became the highest-grossing sound film ever. It was the first full-length traditional animation feature, and despite the world suffering from the effects of the Great Depression, its commercial success created a new media giant. Although The Walt Disney Company would continue to see many ups and downs…
Attendance for the world’s top 10 theme-park operators climbed 8.6 percent last year, almost double the rate of 2016, thanks to new attractions and growth in Asia. Visitors to parks run by industry leader Walt Disney Co. rose 6.8 percent to 150 million worldwide. Merlin Entertainments Plc, the No. 2 operator and owner of Legoland, saw attendance climb 7.8 percent to 66 million, and third-ranked Universal Studios delivered a 4.4 percent bump to 49.5 million.
LOS ANGELES—Executives at Walt Disney Co. have discussed bringing animation guru John Lasseter back to the company in a new role that would reduce his managerial power but allow him to retain creative influence, according to a person familiar with the matter. Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation, which Mr. Lasseter helped develop into family-entertainment powerhouses, have adapted to operating in his absence, even as staff members remain in the dark about who will lead them, employees said. The entertainment giant faces a tricky situation in deciding what to do about Mr. Lasseter, a predicament facing many companies in the #MeToo era as they deal with executives whose infractions they didn’t consider severe enough to warrant termination.
According to the acquisition agreement announced in December 2017, Walt Disney (DIS) plans to buy the film and entertainment business units of 21st Century Fox (FOXA) for an equity value of $52.4 billion. Among other assets, Disney would also acquire Fox’s 39% stake in the European pay-TV group Sky. The deal with Fox is expected to boost Disney’s revenues and is expected to strengthen its portfolio with additional content.
Walt Disney World still sits comfortably atop the theme park mountain in terms of guest visitation in 2017.
