Movies Disney cancelling majority of Fox movies in development

Recommended Posts

I really hope that Disney has more of a plan than just "let's remake all the old Fox properties."

Release The Rise of the Skywalker under the Fox label so we can have the Fox Fanfare before the opening scroll again, dammit!

Iger said he’s assigned his top film lieutenants Alan Horn and Alan Bergman to apply the same “discipline and creative standards” to the division now run by Emma Watts. This means tossing the majority of projects in development, Iger said, taking the label “in a new direction, with an all new development slate that will focus on a select group of properties.”

 

Yay for the creative homogenization of 40-50% of the big studio market share!

so are they officially canning New mutants now? For the love of god just release it straight to video so we can see it

I’ve heard from some of my Fox theatrical friends that they may be altering the film a little and changing the title for a future streaming release to further disconnect it from X-men. It is definitely something being discussed at least.

Especially with Fox having so few internal shops for post production, that flick has been all around town for various aspects for literally 2 years. I’m sure some of the post companies that worked on it have folded by now and copies are on drives that got sold off in bankruptcy sales :lol:

Mighty Galactus cares not for your petty concerns mortal. 

By the way I vote for Liam Neeson to voice Galactus.

Your sense of misguided optimism is hysterical.

Nobody over the age of 12 dabs, which is appropriate because you have to have the mind of a child to support this monopoly.

and you can go fuck yourself... how about that for a 12 year old response? Was that appropriately immature enough for you? I promise I can do better.

I work with kids as mature as you all day so I have a thick skin. Just like you they are also excited about Wolverine fighting along Spider-Man.

Everybody is ignoring the REAL question here... Who wins in a fight between The Hulk, The Thing, Colossus and Juggernaut?

 

 

 

Spoiler

My money is on The Thing.

After "Logan," I can't watch a watered down PG13 Wolverine again.  He's supposed to be violent, bloody, and savage.

Yeah I'm wondering how they are going to handle him... and Deadpool for that matter. They claim Deadpool will be unchanged... we'll see.

It is part of the evolution of the industry, and it’s an evolution for the worse for consumers.

 

It is great for me professionally though :lol:

Skillz edits the footage then sends it to SBL who owns a movie theater and they both profit and SBL gives skillz a cut.

Professionally speaking, how are you both benefiting currently @skillzdadirecta& @sblfilms

A lot of work out here with all the streaming services and Esports stuff. I did some work for Disney earlier this year and will be doing some work for Fox (sports) in the Fall. They're using more freelancers after cutting a bunch of departments.  Amazon, Apple, HBO and a couple of other big Content providers are all setting up shop in my neighborhood... so it's a pretty exciting time for a freelance mercenary like me :p

Disney movies generate a substantial amount of revenue and profit for my theaters. It isn’t just ticket sales, we also sell far higher amounts at the concession stand per-person in Disney product than any other studio because Disney flicks tend to attract the entire family, especially dads. Moms will tell kids no, Dads give the credit card and say “get whatever you want” and then complain to their buddies at work how expensive kids are.

That is so true about Fathers... when we were kids, my dad would get is each our own popcorn and soda when we went to the movies. My mother would buy snacks from the supermarket and sneak that shit in to the theater when she would take us... she still does it now with the grandkids lol
