Disney Increases Bid To Acquire Fox

There is a bidding war over who gets to own 21st Century Fox‘s entertainment assets. Recently Comcast made an all-cash offer of $65 billion to acquire Fox’s entertainment assets. This was significantly higher than The Walt Disney Company‘s not-so-official, as it turned out, $52 billion offer. At which point, Disney had only a few days to match or bring in a higher bid.

And according new reports, the Mouse House has done just that. The studio has recently sweetened their deal by adding some cash of their own to the previous stock-offer. This will take their total bid to $71 billion. Not only that, but it appears that Fox has accepted the deal. More on the story below.

Incredibles 2

It has been 14 years since the first Incredibles hit theaters in 2004. Back then, superheroes weren’t such a big deal. But now they are at the forefront of the film industry. Most, if not all, are record-breaking films. But what separates Incredibles from the Marvels and the DCs is its timeless classic vibe.

Now Incredibles 2 has finally arrived. The sequel may look like it’s taking place in the ’60s, but it is able to connect to a modern audience with its likeable characters and universal stories. We were fortunate enough to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and director Brad Bird about the long-awaited sequel. During our time, Bird spoke about why it took so long to do a sequel, some of the changes he made, and making a film for everyone of all ages. Check out what he had to say, below.

Justice League

It’s not easy to understand what exactly is going on with Warner Brothers’ DC film properties. For one thing, they have two Joker films, an uncertain future with other DCEU titles, and a number of previous titles that have failed to live up to expectations. The only reasonably good DCEU film the studio has is Wonder Woman. And after a series of stumbles, the studio is looking to Walter Hamada to steer DC in the right direction.

Hamada, who was named president of DC Entertainment-based film production at Warner Bros. in January, will have to figure out its future. This includes sorting out the DCEU films and giving its much darker ones a new banner. More on the story below.
