Disney: ‘Captain Marvel’ Q3 Home Entertainment Revenue Comes Up Short to ‘Black Panther’

Disney/Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel has sold about 2 million discs since its June 11 packaged-media release, according to industry estimates.

Despite the strong start, that’s about half what Marvel’s Blank Panther sold last year following its disc release May 15, 2018.

Disney Aug. 6 attributed the difference between them to why it posted lower third-quarter (ended June 29) home entertainment revenue.

Meanwhile, total studio revenue increased 33% to $3.8 billion while operating income increased 13% to $792 million.

Higher operating income was due to an increase in theatrical distribution results and lower film cost impairments at legacy operations. These improvements were partially offset by a loss from the 21CF businesses and lower TV/SVOD and home entertainment distribution results.

The increase in theatrical distribution results was due to the performance of Avengers: Endgame, Aladdin, Captain Marvel and Toy Story 4 in the current quarter compared with Avengers: Infinity WarIncredibles 2, Black Panther and Solo: A Star Wars Story in the prior-year quarter.

Operating results at the 21CF businesses reflected a loss from theatrical distribution driven by the performance of Dark Phoenix, for which Disney also recorded a film cost impairment, partially offset by income from TV/SVOD distribution.

Direct-to-Consumer & International revenue for the quarter increased from $827 million to $3.85 billion and segment operating loss increased from $168 million to $553 million.

The increase in operating loss was due to the consolidation of Hulu, the ramp up of investment in ESPN+, which was launched in April 2018 and costs associated with the upcoming launch of Disney+.

Results for the quarter also reflected a benefit from the inclusion of the 21CF businesses due to income at the Fox and National Geographic international channels, partially offset by a loss at Star India.

Starting on March 20, 100% of Hulu’s operating results are now included in the Direct-to-Consumer & International segment as a result of Disney’s acquisition of a controlling interest in SVOD and online TV platform.

Previously, Disney’s ownership share of Hulu results was reported as equity in the loss of investees.

Regardless, Disney’s acquisition of Fox resulted in the revenue elimination increase from $148 million to $737 million and segment operating income eliminations went from income of $6 million to a loss of $133 million driven by eliminations of licenses of ABC Studios and 20th Century Fox Television programs to Hulu.

‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Tops May Disc Sales

Shazam!

BLU-RAY REVIEW: 

Street Date 7/16/19;
Warner;
Action;
Box Office $140.24 million;
$28.98 DVD, $35.99 Blu-ray, $44.95 UHD BD;
Rated ‘PG-13’ for intense sequences of action, language, and suggestive material.
Stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, Djimon Hounsou, Faithe Herman, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Marta Milans, Cooper Andrews, Meagan Good, Ross Butler, D.J. Cotrona, Michelle Borth, Adam Brody, John Glover.

The movie based on the character now known as Shazam has been one of the pleasant surprises of late in an entertainment landscape crowded with superhero adaptations.

For his 80th anniversary, the filmmakers have magnificently captured the essence of one of the most influential characters in early comic book superhero history while successfully re-contextualizing him for a world that is now littered with many of the very comic book tropes he helped inspire (and which the film has a lot of fun calling out and subverting).

The story involves a foster kid named Billy Batson (Asher Angel), who is summoned into a magical realm by a wizard seeking to empower a new champion to keep the evil forces of the seven deadly sins at bay. When Billy speaks the word “Shazam,” he is transformed into the hero of the same name, though with an adult body.

The name Shazam is derived from the mythological heroes from which he draws his powers: the wisdom of Solomon, strength of Hercules, stamina of Atlas, power of Zeus, courage of Achilles and speed of Mercury.

The older Shazam version of Billy is played by Zachary Levi, whose goofy charm perfectly embodies the notion of a child trying to be a superhero. The film is essentially the superhero movie version of Big, and you can be sure that the film doesn’t miss its chances to reference that fact.

With Billy still possessing a teenager’s mind while learning to deal with his new powers, he seeks the advice of foster brother Freddy Freeman (not to be confused with the Atlanta Braves first baseman). Freddy (Jack Dylan Grazer) is a huge fan of superheroes and begins building Shazam’s fan base with YouTube videos showing off his powers, which include flight, superspeed and the ability to shoot lightning bolts from his hands.

The idea of wish fulfillment is a strong recurring theme in the film, as what kid doesn’t daydream about having fantastic abilities that let them put their worries behind them?

The flipside of Billy’s story is Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong), who as a child was rejected by the wizard and has spent 45 years seeking artifacts to return him to the wizard’s cave. In doing so, he becomes the champion for the deadly sins, giving him the power to seek retribution against those who tormented him over the years.

Sivana wants the powers of Shazam for himself so that the spirits of the sins will be free to rain havoc upon the world once more. This of course leads to another classic battle between good and evil that no good comic book movie should be without.

The parallel journeys of Billy and Sivana force the film into a tricky balancing act that director David F. Sandberg somehow pulls off. In contrast to the lighthearted superhero romp of Billy and Freddy, Sivana’s story is more like something out of a horror film, with scary monsters lurking in the shadows causing pain and destruction.

Another positive side effect of the film is the spotlight it puts on foster families, and it’s interesting this film came so soon after 2018’s very good Instant Family, which also dealt with the subject. The foster storyline gives Shazam! a lot of its heart, and the kids in Billy’s foster family end up serving the plot in a huge way that ends up producing one of the biggest fist-pumping moments for fans of the Shazam comics.

Speaking of which, the character’s tumultuous publication history is a big factor in what may be one of the oddest cinematic coincidences of recent years.

The character was introduced by Fawcett Comics in 1939 as Captain Marvel and became the top-selling comic book of the 1940s, even more popular than Superman. He even inspired DC Comics to give Superman the power of flight, when before the Man of Steel was simply able to jump long distances. Captain Marvel was also one of the first heroes to inspire a family of sidekicks with similar powers, including a female version of the main hero.

Nonetheless, DC sued Fawcett claiming that Captain Marvel was basically a ripoff of Superman, and by the early 1950s Fawcett discontinued the character.

In the meantime, Marvel Comics created its own Captain Marvel in the 1960s and seized the trademark on the name, so that when DC acquired publishing rights to the original Captain Marvel and revived the character in the 1970s it couldn’t use the character’s original name in comic book titles, which is how he became known as just Shazam.

As it turned out, a movie based on the Marvel Comics version would end up coming out just a month before Shazam!, the dueling “Captain Marvel” properties adding to Hollywood lore of similarly themed movies hitting theaters at the same time, like the rival James Bond movies of 1983, multiple Columbus movies of 1992, and the Armageddon vs. Deep Impact asteroid movies of 1998.

And, as if Shazam not being allowed to use his original name weren’t enough, Marvel’s movie wasn’t even based on the original version of its own Captain Marvel, but a rebooted version with a previously obscure female superhero taking up the mantle.

In another coincidence, both Captain Marvel movies would feature Djimon Hounsou, who plays the wizard in Shazam! and reprises his Guardians of the Galaxy role as a Kree soldier in Captain Marvel.

In fact, Shazam! is something of an amalgamation of the current superhero movie trend. Like Spider-Man: Homecoming, it plays a Ramones song over an animated end credits sequence (though Shazam!’s serves the motifs of the movie better).

Adam Brody and D.J. Cotrona, who in 2007 had been cast in a now-canceled “Justice League” movie, finally get their chance to play superheroes in Shazam!. Mark Strong returns to the DC Comics fold having previously played Sinestro in the awful Green Lantern movie. And with his role as Sivana’s father, John Glover has now played the father of two DC supervillains,, having played Lex Luthor’s father on “Smallville” (he’s also voiced “The Riddler” in Batman cartoons and played a villain in Batman & Robin).

The Shazam! Blu-ray contains a sequel of sorts in the form of a four-minute motion comic called “Superhero Hooky” in which Billy must explain why he and his foster siblings ditched school for a superhero adventure.

The Blu-ray also includes a whopping 16 deleted scenes that run about 37 minutes in total. About half of them are alternate or lesser-developed versions of sequences in the final film, taken from an earlier cut before the story was tweaked to add a bit bigger scale. There are also some fun additional moments featuring the Shazam family, and a tease of a future supervillain to be played by Dwayne Johnson.

Among the behind-the-scenes material, the most comprehensive is the 27-minute “The Magical World of Shazam,” which delves into all aspects of the production. The making of the climactic battle is the focus of a separate 10-minute scene study. The three-minute “Super Fun Zac” puts a spotlight on Levi in the title role, while the six-minute “Shazamily Values” looks into the foster family aspect of the movie.

Finally, the history and identity of the character is touched upon on the six-minute “Who Is Shazam?”
