Japan distribs at record clip in '04

17 August 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Through the first six months of 2004, Japan's eleven major local and foreign film distribution companies have grossed more than ¥91 billion ($823 million), according to figures released recently by Shochiku, the country's second-ranked distributor-producer. The record half-year result --fueled by such offshore titles as Finding Nemo, The Last Samurai, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, as well as local hits like Quill and Casshern -- would seem to indicate that country's full-year figures will easily surpass last year's boxoffice total of just more than $1 billion, which was based on Motion Picture Assn. estimates. Toho has the No. 1 market share, followed by Shochiku, which said it accounted for approximately 18% of boxoffice receipts. »

Pixar finding that 'Nemo' helped Q2 earnings double

6 August 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Pixar Animation Studios reported stronger-than-expected results Thursday for its fiscal second quarter that ended July 3, driven by the continued ancillary success of its blockbuster Finding Nemo. Top company executives declined to elaborate on details of the company's talks for a new film distribution agreement or on the particulars of a just-announced deal with game maker THQ. Pixar posted earnings of $37.4 million, or 63 cents per share, on revenue of $66.3 million for the quarter. This was nearly double Pixar's earnings of $19.5 million, or 34 cents per share, a year earlier. Revenue for the same period last year was $48.9 million. President Ed Catmull, who is acting as head of the company until CEO Steve Jobs returns next month from cancer surgery, credited multiple continuing revenue streams from last year's theatrical blockbuster Nemo for this quarter's success. »

Pixar boxoffice success earns Street cred

9 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Pixar Animation Studios has long been popular with investors, especially just before it has another movie coming out, meaning that Wall Street is keeping a close eye on the stock in the run-up to the Nov. 5 release of The Incredibles. The producer of such computer-animated instant family classics as Toy Story and Finding Nemo regularly sees its stock price climb several months ahead of its latest theatrical release, according to analysts who have followed the stock's movements. "Six months preceding a Pixar film release, Pixar's share price appreciated more than the S&P (500) in three out of the past four cases ('Nemo' being the exception), with average outperformance of 10.5%," Thomas Weisel Partners analyst Gordon Hodge said in a recent report. »

No June swoon as boxoffice hits high

5 July 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Temperatures were sizzling at the boxoffice last month as the total for the month crested the $1 billion mark for the first time, reaching a staggering $1.03 billion. Led by the magical mischief of Warner Bros. Pictures' Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, June's national boxoffice and admission tallies soared to record heights, consequently giving the summer its strongest launch in history. The new June record was a hefty 14% better than the previous high of $906.6 million racked up just last year when Buena Vista's Finding Nemo was netting some pretty buoyant returns at the boxoffice. Of course it didn't hurt last month's total when Sony's Spider-Man 2 kicked in a stunning $64.3 million during the last two days of the period. »

Things go swimmingly in Pixar Q1

7 May 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Taking a more subdued and jovial tone than he did in the days following his announcement of Pixar's separation from the Walt Disney Co. in January, Pixar CEO Steve Jobs announced strong first-quarter results Thursday driven by the ancillary success of Finding Nemo. At the same time, Pixar gave a downward revision of guidance for its second quarter. Pixar's earnings and revenue beat Wall Street's estimates, as Nemo outswam expectations in DVD and VHS sales. The company earned $26.7 million, or 46 cents per share, on revenue of $53.8 million. These amounts were roughly triple Pixar's earnings and revenue for the same period in 2003. »

ShoWest: 'Punisher' fortifies Lions Gate

24 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

LAS VEGAS -- Lions Gate Entertainment used ShoWest as a platform Tuesday to pump up the company's theatrical distribution footprint in the wake of its recent merger with Artisan Entertainment. The indie banner -- which now has a library of more than 8,000 titles -- screened a world premiere of its upcoming The Punisher for exhibitors before co-hosting a luncheon for roughly 2,000 guests and unveiling a product reel of films slated to hit screens in the coming year-plus. Lions Gate Films slid into what became a lucky Tuesday screening spot last year at ShoWest, when the Walt Disney Co. launched its Finding Nemo before going on to mega-success. »

13 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

NEW YORK -- In the video game sector, which has attracted increased attention from Hollywood and Wall Street alike in recent years, THQ Inc. stands out as one of the companies that relies heavily on titles based on licensed entertainment properties. Among the Hollywood franchises that the company has transformed into console blockbusters are Star Wars, Finding Nemo, such Nickelodeon properties as SpongeBob SquarePants and The Fairly OddParents, as well as Scooby-Doo and Power Rangers. Plus, THQ has strong extreme-sports franchises and a deal with World Wrestling Entertainment that has allowed it to release some of the most popular wrestling video games ever. Besides people in Hollywood, Wall Street observers also have taken note of THQ lately -- even though they have differing takes on where its stock may go. »

Court denies injunction in 'Nemo' suit

13 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

PARIS -- A court here has turned down an injunction against selling merchandise for the movie Finding Nemo, ruling that there were no "serious similarities" between the Walt Disney Co./Pixar character and a clown fish drawn for a French children's book. The case was brought by lawyer and part-time author Franck Le Calvez, who claims to have penned a book about a clown fish called Pierrot about nine years ago. In the preliminary ruling, judge Louis-Marie Raingeard found that there was no possible confusion between the two characters. Disney's fish is "more smiley (and) rounder" than Le Calvez's creation, the judge said, noting that Pierrot is more elongated and cylindrical and his colorings are different. »

WGA focus on ani, nonfiction, reality

5 March 2004 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

As they move closer to contract talks, the WGA West has stepped up its attack on the studios and their parent companies for their handling of writers on animation, reality television and cable nonfiction projects. In a tersely written memo to members, the guild said these writers have not been forgotten despite the recent emphasis on improving DVD residuals when negotiations get under way in coming weeks with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. "Think our DVD royalty rate stinks? Sure does. But compare it to what the writers got for two of the best-selling DVDs of all time, Finding Nemo and The Lion King -- zero," WGA West secretary-treasurer Patric Verrone said in the March issue of WGA West Member News. »
