    [$$] Why Media Deal Making Could Free CBS From Viacom

    Conventional wisdom has it that the wave of media deal making could renew Shari Redstone’s zeal for merging CBS and Viacom. Ms. Redstone’s National Amusements, the parent company of CBS and Viacom, seems to have given up on the idea of merging the companies after months of bickering.

    Box Office: 'Avengers: Infinity War' Tops $2 Billion Worldwide

    As of yesterday, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War has passed the $2 billion mark at the global box office. Speaking of domestic play, it (barely) fell below $1 million per day for the first time on Monday, giving it the same number of consecutive $1m+ days as (offhand), Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Spider-Man and Jurassic World. Wonder Woman dropped on day 47, while Black Panther, The Avengers and Frozen dropped on day 53. The film has earned $656.1 million in North America, meaning it'll probably pass Titanic ($659m) in unadjusted domestic earnings on Friday or Saturday.

    Why Horror Movies Like 'Hereditary' Poll So Poorly With Audiences

    No explicit spoilers for "Hereditary," but I do discuss in vague terms whether some recent horror films have a happy or unhappy ending. Well, first of all, I don't think A24 is shedding too many tears over the D+ grade that Hereditary received from Cinemascore from opening night audience polling. As you should know, arthouse horror films, even ones with rave reviews, or especially ones with rave reviews, tend to get hammered by opening night audiences.

    Viacom: Don't Expect More Buybacks or Dividends

    Don’t expect higher dividends or fresh buybacks from Viacom (VIAB). The question came up Thursday at a Gabelli & Co. conference after CFO Wade Davis said management was “a little frustrated, as potentially some of you all are, with stock prices.” “None of that is anticipated,” Davis said, noting a previously mentioned goal of paying down a debt load that sat around $10 billion at the end of Q1. “And beyond the de-levering objectives that we’ve highlighted for people, we have a pretty broad pipeline of tactical internal investments, as well as small M&A that we’re going to be working through those prior to thinking about restarting any sort of share repurchase program.” The company repurchased 2.1 million shares in fiscal 2016, and 21 million the year before, for a total of $1.6 billion.
