Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s Digital HD platform launch in September proved successful with the early retail release of sci-fi thriller 'Prometheus,' News Corp. president Chase Carey said during a first-quarter fiscal call with analysts.
Starz LLC Nov. 6 reported third-quarter (ended Sept. 30) operating income of $99 million on revenue of $400 million. Income was down 2% from operating income of $101 million during the previous-year period, while revenue increased from $389 million.
Merchandising: Whatever new releases hit shelves Nov. 6 were overshadowed by the imminent arrival of Sony Pictures’ 'The Amazing Spider-Man' three days later. The Friday release of the superhero flick dominated most marketing materials in the lead-up to its release.
