Why the new 'Hellboy' movie was an epic flop at the box office — from awful reviews to losing visionary director Guillermo del Toro

The latest "Hellboy" movie bombed at the box office over the weekend with a $12 million debut.  Box-office experts told Business Insider that the absence of Guillermo del Toro, who directed the first two movies in 2004 and 2008, hurt the movie. "He really brought this creature feature to life and without him, just like in the case of 'Pacific Rim: Uprising,' losing him behind the camera was the death knell," Jeff Bock, the Exhibitor Relations senior box-office analyst, said. But the absence...

Disney Plus isn't a 'Netflix killer,' but other streamers like Apple should be worried

Disney unveiled its Netflix rival, Disney Plus, on Thursday, and some industry observers dubbed it a "Netflix killer." But the streaming market won't have one winner, and as Netflix is the clear No. 1, Disney Plus is much more of a threat to services from Apple and WarnerMedia. Disney's aggressive pricing of Disney Plus (and Hulu) also validates Netflix's emphasis on achieving global scale as quickly as possible. Netflix's brand has become an important part of the pop-culture fabric, and while...

Disney CEO Bob Iger told Bloomberg that the "Star Wars" movies will go on "hiatus" after the release of "Episode IX" on December 20. “We will take a pause, some time, and reset,” Iger said, “because the Skywalker saga comes to an end with this ninth movie.

A Possible ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ Season 4 Was Sidelined By M. Night Shyamalan’s Movie

Avatar: The Last Airbender is a perfect TV series, full stop. No “perfect TV series for an animated show” or “perfect TV series for kids.” For three seasons, Avatar: The Last Airbender delivered a rich, thematically complex, gorgeously animated story about a young boy who is charged with saving the world from an oppressive, conquering empire. It’s a simple, and familiar, tale but the characters were so vibrant and the storytelling so tight that Avatar: The Last Airbender deserves its place as o...
