Recommended Posts

I was on the phone for probably the last time with one of my Fox reps and she was really struggling knowing the the axe is about to drop any minute.

Lowering output that much doesn't seem like the best way to maximize that investment. 

It does in the context of Disney’s business model, which is basically blockbusters only. It does speak to the problem of making small movies for theatrical release though as Disney will apparently utilize the rest of Fox’s labels to produce direct to Hulu/Disney+ content.

 

Film lover me is very displeased with this.

Fox didn’t make 15-20 movies a year worth seeing. Even the 3-4 is pushing it. 

 

They could be worth seeing to other people. All of these mergers are leading us toward the inevitable conclusion of having only 12 movies released by year by Exxon-Disney, one per month that is legally required to screen in all theatre rooms. Each will have a budget of $450 million and each successive one will break launch records.

Settle down Orwell. 

 

And robots randomly force people into theatres to watch movies and hold their eyes open with pincers.

How likely/unlikely is it the content on most streaming networks will be flocking over here ^^^^^  in the near future, though?

As someone  who is CATEGORICALLY opposed to ALL mergers of media companies, I just have to say: I told you so.
