    The Secrets Behind The Sparkle Of Disney's Parades

    Next month Disneyland in California will début a glittering new float in its night time parade Paint the Night and although it has all the bells and whistles, the real magic is behind the scenes. The first night time parade which rolled through Disneyland was the Main Street Electrical Parade in 1972. Named after the turn-of-the-century-themed street it passed through, the parade featured floats shaped like classic Disney characters which were covered in brightly-colored light bulbs.

    Is Netflix Really Worth More Than Disney Or Comcast?

    Disney's Bob Iger, center, and Mickey Mouse ring the market's opening bell with NYSE's Tom Farley last November. As of late this week, Netflix was worth more, by market capitalization at least, than Disney or Comcast. For the rest of Memorial Day weekend at least, Netflix remains the world's most highly valued media and entertainment company.

    Box Office: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Disappoints With Mere $36M Friday

    On its face, a $71 million Fri-Sun figure was a terrific number for an opening weekend. It's somewhat rare, especially in this frontloaded and Netflix-and-Chill era, but it does happen from time (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows) to time (Batman Begins). All of this brings us to Solo: A Star Wars Story.

    Analyst Urges Sought-After Fox Not To Jump The Gun

    A prominent media analyst Friday urged shareholders of Twenty-First Century Fox to delay voting on a hookup with Walt Disney until rival suitor Comcast has a chance to make a promised higher bid. “Do not let Disney steal Fox from Rupert,” urged Rich Greenfield of BTIG Research — offering investors some food for thought ahead of a long holiday weekend. “We have yet to talk to a large Fox investor that does not prefer a meaningfully superior cash offer from Comcast to an all-stock bid from Disney – regardless of the tax implications,” he wrote in a blog post.

    Disney Slashes Forecast for ‘Solo’ With Early Ticket Sales Sagging

    Walt Disney Co. slashed its opening-weekend forecast for “Solo: A Star Wars Story” as early returns from theaters signaled a deeply disappointing opening for the company’s newest space adventure film. Sales at U.S. and Canadian theaters are likely to total $105 million to $115 million through the four-day Memorial Day weekend, Disney said Friday in an email. The “Star Wars” films are a key part of Disney’s movie slate, which also includes the hugely successful Marvel movies and animated features from Pixar.

    Box Office: 'Deadpool 2' Crossing $400 Million Worldwide

    Fox released a cute Golden Girls-ish Deadpool commercial online today, presumably to coax folks to either see the movie or see the movie again over the long Memorial Day weekend. The hope is that the holiday weekend will soften the blow of what otherwise might be a hefty second-weekend drop, and we'll see if it ends up closer to $220 million or $230m domestic by Monday night. The movie has earned $164m in its first week of domestic release, meaning it has earned at least $370m worldwide on a $110m budget.

    'Avengers: Infinity War' Is About To Face Its Final Box Office Challenge

    Marvel and Walt Disney's Avengers: Infinity War earned another $1.914 million on Thursday, bringing its 28-day cume to $605.2m domestic. If it can withstand the head-to-head challenge of Solo: A Star Wars Story, it's probably going to pass the $2 billion mark worldwide and possibly the $2.068b global gross of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Part of the reason Disney moved Avengers: Infinity War to late April was to give it a shot at the global opening weekend record and to give it more time before the one-two punch of Deadpool 2 and Solo: A Star Wars Story.

    Box Office: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Bombs In China With $3M Friday

    As expected, Solo: A Star Wars Story was DOA in China, earning just $3.3 million on its first day of release. China got its first theatrical taste of Star Wars with The Force Awakens and they (as a whole) didn't care much for it. As such, Force Awakens earned just $124 million from a $33m opening day, while Rogue One earned $69m the next year and The Last Jedi ended its run with just $42.6m in what is now the world's biggest moviegoing marketplace. As noted yesterday, there is no law saying that China must embrace the Force on a level equal to North American moviegoers.

    Comcast (CMCSA) has long been known for its careful approach to dealmaking, preferring to pay for acquisitions with cash and stock instead of borrowing, according to CNN. The Walt Disney Company (DIS) agreed to buy a piece of Sky in what is seen as a move designed to help Fox pass regulatory muster in its pursuit of Sky. Comcast is reportedly in talks with banks to borrow as much as $60 billion to fund its anticipated new offer for Fox in a challenge to Disney.
