apple’s hollywood awakening and tv’s rush to digital ‘rebundling’

From inside the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California, on March 25, Apple’s top executives outlined a vision for a future in which live sports events, breaking news, prestige hourlong dramas and kids cartoons can all be accessed through one hub that is available across multiple screens. If that future sounds a lot like cable television’s present, well, that’s because it is. As streaming becomes the primary method through which many households access film and TV programming, Apple is at the center of a new fight to own the living room — not so much directly taking on Amazon, Hulu and forthcoming services from Disney and WarnerMedia, but potentially competing on an even bigger scale with the goal of aggregating content from all those platforms. “Today, there is so much to…

can the king of hollywood manage the king of the world?

In 1997, when James Cameron needed six more months than planned to finish Titanic, he bumped into Rupert Murdoch on the Fox lot and promised the mogul his costly epic would be “good.” “It better be a damn sight better than good,” Murdoch told Cameron, granting his studio’s star filmmaker the time he wanted, a decision that paid off with nearly $2.2 billion in global box office, 11 Oscars and the “I’m the king of the world” speech. Cameron’s relationship with the Murdochs was unusually strong. Now, days after Disney closed its $71.3 billion Fox deal, the Avatar director finds himself in business on the sequels with a very different company, one where intellectual properties like Star Wars and Marvel are valued higher than any star, and where the kind of…

remember 3d? neither do moviegoers

There’s no hiding behind dark glasses. After years of steady decline, box office revenue from 3D screens in North America went into freefall last year, hitting its lowest level since 2008 (the year before Avatar) as more and more moviegoers refuse to pay an extra charge of $3 to $4. The findings were included in the March 21 annual report from the Motion Picture Association that provides a snapshot of theatrical spending and habits around the globe. In 2018, 3D box office revenue in the U.S. and Canada totaled $800 million, down a whopping 38 percent from the $1.3 billion collected in 2017. The number of wide 3D releases declined year-over-year from 34 to 27, but that also reflects a retreat from the format. The dip overseas, which has propped up the…
