While a bidding war between Comcast and Disney seemed to briefly erupt over the purchase of 21st Century Fox, it seems that it’s been settled: after Disney came roaring back into the fight with a staggering bid of $71.3 billion, Fox quickly answered back with “Sorry Comcast, we’re going with the mouse.” Disney released an amended agreement, and now the only hurdle left in front of the merger are regulatory questions from the Federal Trade Commission, which is likely to approve the deal going through. Of course, Comics on Film isn’t a finance news column, far from it. We’re here this week to simply speculate on how exactly some previously inaccessible characters housed at 20th Century Fox could now be incorporated into Disney’s future plans with…Read More

Gilliam retains The …

“It’s all about to kick off.” Sky Cinema has debuted an official teaser trailer for an action film titled Final Score, from British director Scott Mann (Down Amongst the Dead Men, The Tournament, and Heist). This film seems like kind of a remake of Sudden Death (even with the same kind of cheesy title), that actual film from the 90s with Jean Claude Van-Damme where they take over a hockey arena.
