Here's how #TWD  aided @AMC_TV last quarter: http://bit.ly/17Ke88v $AMCX

From the article:

"Advertising revenue surged 24.3% in the fourth quarter on "strong demand for original programming," which no doubt includes The Walking Dead. Season five of the zombie drama kicked off at the beginning of the quarter with another record-breaking premiere. A joint venture giving AMC operational control of BBC AMERICA also aided advertising results and drove higher affiliate fees, leading to a 15.3% increase in distribution revenue. Adjusted cash flow from operations, or AOCF, also improved along with revenue, rising 96.9% year over year in Q4."

My first for the @weebly Inspiration Center. Did you click the headline? http://bit.ly/17jj4By #writing   #blogging  

From the post:

"The answer might surprise you. See, when you're writing a blog post your first job isn't to please readers but to get clicks. And that means learning to write must-click headlines.

Getting the Click

If you've ever been in sales you know what a must-click headline is. It's a tease, an irresistible opening line that promises more if you'll just take the next step. Here are two that appeared recently at Yahoo's home page ..."

#MockingjayPart1  suffers an $IMAX induced setback, but will still crush #GOTGhttp://goo.gl/egiHDV

From the article:

"Instead of a $150 million-plus from the latest entry in The Hunger Games franchise, Variety had the weekend consensus at closer to $130 million.Mockingjay -- Part 1 failed to achieve either threshold. What's more, Friday's $55 million opening also ranks below the theatrical debuts for The Hunger Games ($67.3 million) and Catching Fire ($70.9 million). Fewer IMAX (NYSE: IMAX  ) showings are at least partially responsible for the gap.

An out-of-this-world problem

Widescreen operators chose to stick with Interstellar for an extra week rather than show Mockingjay, a problem that neither of its predecessors faced. The Paramount-distributed space epic earned $20.6 million at IMAX theaters the prior weekend, just the sort of record-breaking debut executives had been banking on. Catching Fire held the prior mark with a $17.1 million open at IMAX theaters last year, The Wrap reports ..."

With  #BigHero6  and #Frozen ,@Disney Animation moves out of the shadow of @DisneyPixar: http://bit.ly/1vl0vGF $DIS

From the article:

"The adventures of Hiro Hamada and the pudgy robot Baymax opened to $73.7 million in U.S. theater ticket sales versus just $47.5 million for Interstellar, a widescreen epic from director Christopher Nolan that's also the widest release in IMAX (NYSE: IMAX  ) history.

That Big Hero 6 still managed to win its first box office matchup is a huge though not uncommon achievement. Frozen set records last year. Wreck-It-Ralph delighted audiences the year prior. For the first time in decades, Disney's in-house animators are tops in the business. How did we get to this point? And now that we're here, what does it mean for Disney investors?"

Six-time nominee  #AmericanSniper  isn't the most profitable Best Picture contender. Click to find out who is: http://bit.ly/1EFR6dS #oscars  

From the article:

"Of course, Oscar night isn't just about business for me. A few years ago I started putting on a small party for my wife, laying out snacks, drinks, and brackets as we prep for the big event. She enjoys the fashion as I check in on what's working in a business I've followed for decades (first as a fan, then as a business analyst).

Part of my annual "pregame" ritual, if you will, is to estimate the box office profitability of the year's Best Picture contenders. Here's what I learned about the current crop of nominees ..."

A deal to put  #SpiderMan  in the @MarvelCU would be a win for @Sony http://bit.ly/152kU8T $SNE

From the article:

Sony (NYSE: SNE) has owned the rights to make movies and TV shows featuring the web-slinger since the late '90s, and up until now there had been no indication that the studio was ready to strike a deal that would allow Disney to borrow the character for Civil War or any other upcoming Marvel movie.

But yesterday Latino Review, which is well known for nabbing comic book movie scoops, reported that Marvel and Sony had come to a deal to get Spidey back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in time for Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 on May 4, 2018. 

Origins of Marvel Studios -- financial forces at work
Surprised? Don't be. The comic book king has struck cooperative deals in the past, like the one that gave birth to Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Rewind to April 28, 2005 ...

+Isaiah Stoy That was never part of my argument hence why I never explained it. Yes everyone knows who Spiderman is but really a third incarnation in the past ten years. The general audience didn't particular like the new Spiderman films. If they were keeping Garfield and somehow fitting the events of his two films into the MCU i might work but they're not. So you could argue that yes people know who Spiderman is but they wont be familiar with this incarnation meaning they don't care about him.

About Infinite part 1, I think the 'New Avengers' plus GotG will be more than enough for moviegoers.Who know had Marvel owned the rights to Spiderman we might not even be getting a Black Panther, Ant Man, or dare I say a Guardians film. 

This however would have been a completely different situation if they hadn't so recently rebooted Spiderman. In a perfect world, if no reboot and Marvel had already planned the other solo films and then Sony wanted to cut a deal, then yes by all means add him. But its to much of a mess now.

ICYMI: Huge #BlackFriday  for Disney between the merch and the teaser for #TheForceAwakens  http://bit.ly/1rmIPd9 
 
Huge #BlackFriday for $DIS between the merch and the teaser for #TheForceAwakens http://bit.ly/1rmIPd9

From the article:

"When Disney (NYSE: DIS ) announced plans to acquire Lucasfilm in 2012, it bought a property with deep ties to Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA ) .

Rupert Murdoch and his team have claims on all six existing episodes in the space opera, including a perpetual claim on Star Wars: Episode IV -- A New Hope. The other five films come up for renewal in 2020, at which point it's a fair bet that Disney will take over. In the meantime, every re-release, remastering, or TV airing of the previous films creates high-margin revenue to Fox.

The split surely creates headaches for accountants, but it's no more than a minor annoyance for Disney investors. Why? The House of Mouse retains all rights to new Star Wars properties and other assets worth a great deal more than $4 billion, in my view ..."
