can a merged viacomcbs boldly go after other media assets?

When Sumner Redstone split CBS from Viacom in 2006, he was busting up a major conglomerate in the hope that the assets would be better appreciated separately for their different qualities — CBS for its steady reliability and Viacom for its riskier, hit-driven growth potential. It didn’t quite work out that way, and now daughter Shari Redstone is struggling to turn a couple of relatively small companies into a single entity. On Aug. 13, CBS and Viacom said that they plan to recombine to create a company valued at about $31 billion — not exactly in the league of AT&T-WarnerMedia ($255 billion), or even Netflix ($137 billion). If a deal closes, the new entity — dubbed ViacomCBS — would aim to do battle not only with those much larger conglomerates but…

universal’s scrapped the hunt: death threats, negative test screenings

On the evening of Aug. 6, Universal Pictures held a test screening of its thriller-satire The Hunt at a crowded theater in the San Fernando Valley. It was the second such screening, and some test audience members were again expressing discomfort with the politics of the Jason Blum-produced film, a source familiar with the feedback tells THR. Hunt, directed by Craig Zobel, chronicles a dozen “deplorables” trying to outlast a group of private jet-flying “elites” bent on killing their anti-choice, gun-loving targets. Following a THR story earlier that day on the altering of the film’s marketing plan in the wake of a trio of mass shootings, Universal executives and the filmmakers began receiving death threats via email and on social media and immediately paused the campaign altogether. Sources say the studio’s…

when one tv megadeal isn’t quite enough

How much work is too much for a top showrunner? In a Peak TV era overflowing with choice, content creators big and small are leveraging the demand for their services with deals for exclusivity on different platforms. On Aug. 7, Jeff Davis (Criminal Minds) inked a “broadcast-only” overall deal with the newly independent Fox Entertainment. While the pact was designed to be beneficial to the network — which says it also could sell Davis’ fare to outside platforms — the showrunner is still free to sign another TV overall deal elsewhere. That practice, multiple sources tell THR, has been growing quietly for the past few years as new platforms have emerged. Deals such as CBS TV Studios’ 2015 pact with Ridley Scott’s Scott Free are also for broadcast only. Now, sources…

japan box office boom fueled by free time

Defying a slowly shrinking population and the rise of streaming platforms, Japan’s box office is spiking in 2019 thanks to rising wages, a shift in corporate culture and a strong lineup of local and Hollywood films. Box office revenue was up 16 percent in the first half of the year, with July alone surging 30 percent from the same corridor in 2018, per local entertainment news service Bunkatsushin. It’s shaping up to be a banner year for Hollywood, which hasn’t claimed more than 50 percent of the Japan box office since 2007, when the country was the No. 2 moviegoing market in the world behind North America and China. This year was sparked by Bohemian Rhapsody, which topped the charts for two weeks in January despite having debuted Nov. 9. By…
