At least, in this case, Wade Wilson would approve of the sarcasm. Anyway, Deadpool 2 just snagged an opening day that is bigger (sans inflation) than Green Lantern's entire opening weekend ($53.1m in 2011). In this case, Deadpool 2 broke the records set both by Deadpool and It among R-rated giants.
Brian Henson's long-in-development R-rated muppet murder mystery is pretty high on the must-see list this summer, and it's one of the more ambitious "not based on anything" releases this year. Melissa McCarthy is probably going to have a pretty good year. The comic actress just debuted Life of the Party, another one of her mid-to-low budget comic vehicles co-wrote by McCarthy and husband Ben Falcone and directed by Falcone, to what likely will be a $32.5m ten-day total on a $30m budget. Since breaking out in Bridesmaids just over seven years ago (where she helped power Paul Feig's leggy Kristen Wiig vehicle to $288m worldwide on $17m budget), McCarthy has become a true-blue "face in the trailer" movie star.
Deadpool earned $47.3 million on opening day, meaning it earned $34.6m on its “pure Friday” and 26.8% of its opening day via advance-night screenings. It earned a record-breaking $50.4m on its opening day, meaning it earned $36.9m on its “pure Friday” and 26.7% of its opening day via advance-night previews. It and Deadpool were neck-and-neck for Thursday, Friday and Saturday (It made $44.9m while Deadpool earned $42.5m on Saturday).
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.
In the first quarter, T-Mobile (TMUS) posted adjusted EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization) of ~$2.96 billion, a 9% sequential rise and a 10.8% YoY (year-over-year) rise.
If the Georgia-filmed “Life of the Party” sounds like a gender-bended “Back to School,” Rodney Dangerfield’s 1986 movie about a guy enrolling in the same college as his kid, that’s because it kinda is, writes film critic Eleanor Ringel-Cater.
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.
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.
T-Mobile (TMUS) started the year with impressive earnings results in the first quarter of 2018. The telecom (telecommunications) company exceeded Wall Street analysts’ expectations for both earnings and revenue. It’s been consistently delivering better-than-expected earnings results for the past several quarters.
Just in time for summer, when people are on vacation and otherwise on the go, Hulu has updated its mobile and web viewing experiences with an emphasis on live viewing.
Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc. and New Line Cinema's Rampage has officially passed the $400 million mark at the global box office. You can make the case that the Dwayne Johnson/Naomi Harris adaptation of the 1980's cult arcade game is essentially the first big-budget video game movie that qualifies as a hit since Angelina Jolie's first ($110m-budgeted) Tomb Raider back in 2001. Rampage is the second-biggest video game adaptation both overseas (behind the $386 million overseas cume, with $214m from China, of Warcraft) and worldwide (behind Warcraft's $433m global cume in 2016).
Avengers: Infinity War earned another $6.044 million on Tuesday, soaring 31% from its $4.6m Monday gross and bringing its 19-day domestic total up to $558.7m. Since it’s way behind Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($620m) on the unadjusted domestic charts, it’s not going to be getting any higher on that score until Memorial Day weekend.
Apple is looking to sell subscriptions to third-party video services directly through its TV app, according to Bloomberg. Such a move could be a challenge to Amazon’s (AMZN) Channels program, which allows Prime subscribers to add premium third-party video services such as HBO to the Prime Video service. Prime Video, Amazon’s equivalent to Netflix (NFLX) and AT&T’s (T) DIRECTV Now, is offered as part of Amazon Prime, which costs $119 per year or $12.99 per month.

Red Sparrow debuts on “priced-to-buy” VOD this morning, following its relatively poor theatrical showing. On a related note, MGM and WB’s Tomb Raider has essentially finished its run. For all of you out there who got excited when Steven Spielberg mentioned the possibility of a female Indiana Jones or get excited when someone mentions the possibility of a female James Bond, well, where the heck were you?
Twenty-First Century Fox Inc (NASDAQ:FOXA) is getting a lot of attention these days from two entertainment powerhouses. First, Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS) offered an all-stock deal for most of Fox’s film, television, cable channels and National Geographic and FX properties, as well as its regional sports networks. Then, after the Fox board approved the terms of the deal, cable giant Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ:CMCSA) — and owner of NBC and Universal — rolled in and dropped an all-cash offer on the table that’s worth more than the Disney bid.
Ryan Coogler and Joe Robert Cole’s Black Panther arrives on DVD and Blu-Ray today, just three months after its domestic opening day. Yes, with the final figures tabulated, Black Panther made $2 million on its 13th weekend of domestic release, bringing its cume to $696.3m. Whether or not it stays in theaters just long enough to top the $700m mark in North America, it has officially earned $645.8m overseas and $1.342 billion worldwide, good enough to get past the (unadjusted) $1.341b global cume of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II from back in 2011.
Investors pursuing a solid, dependable stock investment can often be led to Time Warner Inc (NYSE:TWX), a large-cap worth US$73.39B. Risk-averse investors who are attracted to diversified streams of revenueRead More...
The debut of Walt Disney Co.’s ( DIS) “Avengers: Infinity War” in China over the weekend drew in $200 million, which now ranks it in the top five international film releases. Disney broke records when the superhero film was first release late last month when its global opening drew about $640.9 million in sales. Now, “Avengers: Infinity War” is among the top 10 largest opening in North American history with about $547.8 million total domestic earnings, including $61.8 million in domestic sales over the weekend, according to the latest comScore data.
It's easy to understand why Michael Cohen's consulting pitch in early 2017 appealed to AT&T Inc. Cohen's annual fee of $600,000 was a sliver of the $500 million breakup fee AT&T will owe Time Warner Inc. if the Trump administration succeeds in blocking their $85.4 billion merger.
