disney box office record

The Walt Disney Company has made some changes to their calendar of upcoming feature film releases, starting with the delay of the live-action spin-off Cruella, based on the villain of the same name from 101 Dalmatians. But the more interesting news is the three Fox titles that Disney will be releasing in 2020, and two of them don’t really sound like they’re going to do Disney any favors at the box office. Get the updated Disney movie release dates and details on each of the projects below. Read More »

The Woman in the Window Delayed

Disney is still sifting through the movies they acquired in the purchase of 20th Century Fox. While some projects, like Wes Ball’s adaptation of the fantasy adventure The Mouse Guard, have been set aside by the House of Mouse, others are in the midst of moving towards a release. However, one of those projects need to be retooled a bit before it’s ready for audiences.

The Woman in the Window is an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s best-selling novel of the same name that Fox 2000 had been working on before Disney bought Fox. The film is an adult thriller directed by Joe Wright (Atonement) and starring Amy Adams that had been positioned as a possible awards contender with a release set for this fall. But apparently early test screenings confused audiences too much, and now the movie will undergo reshoots to make the central mystery easier to understand. But that means Fox/Disney have opted to delay The Woman in the Window until 2020. Read More »
