Here’s a quick wrap up of other headlines making news today.
Amazon (AMZN) CEO Jeff Bezos said in an annual letter to shareholders on April 18 that the e-commerce giant has over 100 million Prime subscribers. Prime subscriptions, which cost $99 in the United States, gives subscribers several perks, including free, two-day delivery, access to its video and music streaming services, and exclusive offers on certain items.
Moody's Investors Service says that Comcast Corporation's (A3) ("Comcast") announcement under the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers announcing its formalized cash offer for Sky plc (Baa2 developing ...
Amazon, Netflix and Apple are forcing Hollywood to reshape its business. Disney is way ahead, but some others aren't far behind. Ben Fritz covers Hollywood and recently wrote " The Big Picture: The Fight for the Future of Movies ." In it, he questions what the future of Hollywood will look like facing the pressures from Amazon AMZN , Netflix NFLX and Apple AAPL .
In the fiscal year ended June 30 of last year, Sky had revenue of £12.92 billion and a pretax profit of £803 million. Comcast is an American cable juggernaut that owns NBCUniversal as well as the Xfinity cable and telecommunications service. It was among the suitors that approached Fox with interest in buying part of its assets before Fox struck its deal with Disney.
Fresh off the presses, Disney Channel has just announced their next Star Wars animated series. Production has begun on the anime-inspired Star Wars: Resistance, which is Disney’s follow-up to the just-completed (after a robust four-season run) Star Wars: Rebels. While that Disney XD toon centered upon a band or scrappy rebels who eventually became a part of the Rebellion just before the events of A New Hope, this time around it’ll be… well, essentially the same idea.
An animated "Star Wars" children's television series that draws visual inspiration from Japanese anime will debut later this year on the Disney Channel, Walt Disney Co and its "Star Wars" subsidiary Lucasfilm said on Thursday. "Star Wars Resistance" is the latest in a string of numerous new or upcoming film and television "Star Wars" ventures for Disney, which paid $4 billion in 2012 for the blockbuster science-fiction saga created by George Lucas. The adventure series centers on Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and sent on a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order military dictatorship.
Tonight marks the domestic release of Walt Disney's Avengers: Infinity War. To celebrate the occasion, I am offering a new qualitative list of the now 19 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies produced thus far. The order of the previous films remains mostly unchanged, even if Age of Ultron moved up a spot since it has aged well. It’s a little astonishing that there have been six new MCU flicks in just the last two years, considering it took four years to get from Iron Man to The Avengers.
Comcast Corp. lobbed the ball back to 21st Century Fox Inc. and Walt Disney Co. in the battle for Sky Plc this week, starting a bidding war for Britain’s biggest pay-TV company.
Comcast's formal offer to buy out Sky now put both Disney and Fox in a complicated situation, first and foremost because it automatically increases the stake for Disney's bid for Fox.
Shanghai Disneyland should be viewed as a local company in China, Walt Disney (DIS.N) said on Thursday, shrugging off concerns that U.S.-China trade tensions could affect visitor numbers or import costs for the $5.5 billion (4 billion pounds) theme park. Bob Weis, President of Walt Disney Imagineering, addressed the trade issue at the opening of Toy Story Land, a new extension modelled after the Disney-Pixar film series and the park's first major expansion since it opened in 2016. Shanghai Disneyland is a joint venture with state-owned Shendi Group, which has a 57 percent stake.
