Re: Captain: $1.4 billion?

I know you are excited and enthralled with all this box office estimate watching, but I'm only interested in the numbers after they come in, and on the bottom line at the end of the quarter.

Korea and Japan will open later this summer putting The Jungle Book into the exclusive billion dollar club - a rare feat for a non-sequel.

Re: MouseBits - The Magic Of The Jungle

Generally speaking, women and girls see Disney’s magic castle logo on a trailer and are pulled closer. The opposite can be true with guys. So Disney aggressively and repeatedly pitched “The Jungle Book” to male audiences.

Paris Refurbishments

I took a look at a site that tracks the Paris parks and found lot of closures. There were so many that I wondered what was open. Disney decided last year to "reinvent the magic" on ten classic attractions. The early efforts mainly center [more]

Re: Replacing Downey as Iron Man

Who will start worrying about cost when the box office drops below $1b...
