Rupert Murdoch sells 21st Century Fox to preserve news legacy — Analysis

The deal also could allow Disney to boost its film business in India, where the vast majority of movies are local Bollywood releases, Parameswaran said.

The Nasdaq Composite and S&P 500 each opened 0.2% higher. But recycled titles everyone has already seen are nowhere near enough.

Plus, Anastasia has now joined the ranks of Cinderella and Snow White.

Speaking on a conference call to investors, Deadline is reporting that Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that "they're looking forward to expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe to include X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool". That gives them more time to really make the relationship sing, and plenty of space of Deadpool to be his inappropriate self if Marvel isn't interested in making an R-rated movie. Could this be one of the redundancies that Disney, the reigning king of animation with both the Mouse House and Pixar under its thumb, hopes to eliminate? Too few people watch. All the same, that was but one frightening illustration of the sinister influence that a corporation drunk on its own power can wield. "NBC is in deep trouble", he said.

For such a large and until recently, surprising, transaction, Disney has laid out a detailed plan for what the combined company looks like. In the first fiscal quarter, Fox saw international ad revenue jump 10 percent, fueled by double-digit increases in growth through Star India, while in the United States the company saw 3 percent growth in ad revenue.

Marvel Entertainment had previously sold the rights to its most famous comic book characters to Fox (and Spider-Man to Sony) before the company decided to make their own movies in the mid-2000s.

Mr Ailes said Ms Carlson's suit was in retaliation for the network's decision not to renew her contract after disappointing ratings for her show.

For Rupert Murdoch, the sale is all about ensuring what he's passionate about - news - and all the work he's done in building a news company will exist into the future beyond him. Netflix shouted back."Then we will create our own". What becomes of original programming like the Emmy-winning "Handmaid's Tale"? The stock is up almost 4 percent as of midday Thursday, but shareholders will want clarity. The movie franchise has been going since 2000 and it would be far too complicated to merge two bulging universes - unless it takes a comic book route and creates some kind of infinite universe fabric of time and space rip thingumabob, which might be too much to ask a casual movie fan to grasp.

Disney has a bargaining chip in the form of its other Fox assets.

And Netflix is just getting started. In order to change the land-use, he said, "the whole lot would have to be rezoned and re-imagined". That could give Disney the opportunity to expand Hulu globally.

There is, of course, a major obstacle: zoning.

Kingsman and Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar has commented on Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox's film and television assets and the implications the deal could have on their Marvel content. The consumer is winning.

So, there's a vanity aspect and then there's the legacy aspect and that requires a little history. Follow his Facebook Page here.
