Disney has been making headlines over the past month with people on both sides of the aisle deciding on the daily version of the franchise film Scarlett Johansson Marvel Black widow. Accusations, lawsuits and last-minute renegotiations all caused a setback for the studios and the talent. Yesterday, Disney announced that they will maintain the contracts that were valid for the remainder of their 2021 period.
“After the tremendous success of our summer films, which include five of the top eight local releases of the year, we are excited to update our theater plans for the remainder of 2021,” said Kareem Daniel, chairman of Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. . said in a statement. ‘As confidence in the movie continues to improve, we look forward to entertaining audiences in theaters while maintaining the flexibility to give our Disney + subscribers the gift Charm this holiday season. “

Following the strong box office for Disney’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which more than tripled the box office record of the Labor Day weekend by $ 94.5 million, this is in line with the pace of Black widow without earning $ 105.9 million in seven days. The Ryan Reynolds Comedy Free ou performs just as well as an exclusive theater and has so far earned $ 95 million in the interior. Conversely, Jungle Cruise with Dwayne Johnson in the lead role, it also did well in the box office, although it was also available on Disney +. It grossed $ 107 million locally, and Disney reported after the film’s first weekend that it earned more than $ 30 million worldwide during its Disney + debut.
Disney’s black spot stemming from the lawsuit by Scarlett Johansson, as well as their initial reaction to the accusation of breach of contract, cost them more than money. The ripples of their much-publicized feud have reached Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors behind the Marvel hits Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame. The Russo brothers were in talks to return for another superhero movie, but the discussions hit an “impasse in negotiations” as the brothers did not decide whether to continue with Disney.
If you endure the same outbursts and lawsuits like Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, Matthew Vaughn, Angelina Jolie and many other heavy hits, it could be the difference between the corporate giant earning a lot, a lot of money, as opposed to a very large heaps of money, as well as unnecessarily burning bridges. With the current pandemic encouraging the need for a re-evaluation of contracts and film releases, the blame cannot just be laid at the feet of the studio. In the same breath, the talent can not be expected either. This is a difficult situation for both parties, and with the passion of both parties to make new films, I am sure that a new model will be created to accommodate everyone and ensure that movie theaters continue to flourish in the years to come.
The six remaining films include The last duel, opening on October 15, Ron is wrong, opening on October 22, Eternal, opening on November 5, west side story, opening December 10 and The King’s Man opening on December 22nd. The films will all have a window of at least 45 days. The animated film Charm, which opens November 24, will have a 30-day window.
