The Deadbeat Critics: “As you’re probably already aware, Disney has successfully outbid Comcast in acquiring Fox’s film and TV assets. Fresh news has just come in, however, and it’s not looking good for fans of the iconic space monster.“
I love the Alien franchise but there's no denying it's all a bit of a mess atm.
Like star wars the alien franchise is toast.
Franchise died long before Disney had it, so you cant blame them
Wouldn't talk about the quality of anything when one has a garbage trash character name, with a garbage trash avatar from a garbage trash movie like Get him to the Greek/Forgetting Sara Marshall.....Clearly your into garbage trash movies....
Your name is freaking Deadpool. Where do you get off judging other people's taste?
Not that i'm into this kind of movies but talking down at other people because they have different preference than yours is the act of the juvenile and the fool.
i just found a more suitable name for you, Deadfoolio. You're welcome, not.
I dont even think they will be thinking about the Aliens franchise just yet, because completing the Marvel circle with X-Men and Fantastic 4, and of course the up and coming Avatar movies will be the talk of the town first.
Alien is a huge ip. There is no way they will bury it. They will sell it or, hopefully, fix it with the help from Disney.
Hopefully, they can fix it because after Aliens it goes off a cliff. It's not nearly as big as you think it is.
Considering we haven't gotten a great Alien movie since Aliens then this isn't really a bad thing. Alien Covenant was an abysmal trash fire.
But Disney is becoming a monopoly.
You should look up the definition of monopoly because they are very far from it
Good, only first two are the better of the bunch any way.
Yep. They spent 75 Billion to buy FOX and abandon all the R-Rated franchises they got in the process. Disney has released R-Rated content before. Just under Touchstone, Dimension, and Miramax.
None of those companies are owned by Disney
They sure are or were Touchstone is a Disney property and Disney did own the other two for a while and released R Rated content. Just Google R rated films released by Disney.
On June 30, 1993, Miramax was purchased for $60 million by The Walt Disney Company, which paved a way for Disney to enter the independent film market. Harvey and Bob Weinstein continued to operate Miramax until they left the company on September 30, 2005.
Dimension Films is an American film production company and independent film distribution label formerly owned by The Walt Disney Studios and The Weinstein Company and now owned by Lantern Capital. It was formerly used as Bob and Harvey Weinstein's label within Miramax Films, to produce and release independent films and genre titles, specifically horror and science fiction films.
The Weinsteins took the Dimension label with them when they separated from Miramax in October 2005 and paired it under their new company, The Weinstein Company. Dimension Films is one of the American "mini-majors", i.e. small to medium independent television and motion picture production studios.
Touchstone Pictures is an American film distribution label of Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. Touchstone typically releases films produced or distributed by Walt Disney Studios with more mature themes and darker tones that are targeted to adult audiences, than those released under the studio's main Walt Disney Pictures banner. As such, Touchstone is not a distinct business operation, and does not exist as a separate company.
Established on February 15, 1984 by then-Disney CEO Ron W. Miller as Touchstone Films, Touchstone operated as an active film production division of Walt Disney Studios during the 1980s through the early 2010s, releasing a majority of the studio's PG-13 and R-rated films. In 2009, Disney entered into a five year, thirty picture distribution deal with DreamWorks Pictures by which DreamWorks' productions would be released through the Touchstone banner. Touchstone then distributed DreamWorks' films from 2011 to 2016.
All 3 owned by Disney at one point as I said and all three released R rated content under Disney ownership.
Ok what happened to the US antitrust laws. Disney is becoming a monopoly in the film/US animation industry. This is bad for well mature content will only come from indie film studios. 20th Century Fox should walk away or not allow Disney to take over
