Doctor Strange 2 Proves Disney Doesn't Need China, Says CEO Bob Chapek
https://www.cbr.com/doctor-strange-2-disney-china-ceo-bob-chapek/
CEO Bob Chapek recently commented on the difficulties both Disney and Marvel Studios seems to be having when it comes to getting blockbuster projects into theaters in China. Chapek suggested that it should not be a concern, as evidenced by the ongoing box office success of films such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
At a recent post-earnings conference call, Chapek stated, "We’ve got a long track record of success and a strong fan base for our brands and franchises in this market... We'll continue to submit our films for release. And it is worth noting, I think, though, that at the time that we are having some difficulty in getting our films in China, that Doctor Strange did extraordinarily well."
He added, "So we’re pretty confident that even without China, if it were to be that we continue to have difficulties in getting titles in there, that it doesn’t really preclude our success given the relatively lower take rate that we get on the box office in China than we do across the rest of the world."
Thus far, the Doctor Strange sequel has grossed approximately $507.8 million at the box office worldwide, including $213.6M domestically. The financial success of the recently released Marvel Studios film follows shortly after the monumental success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, which earned $1.89 billion worldwide, without ever being released in China.

Disney+ Hits 137.7M Subscribers, Beating Wall Street Expectations in Streaming
https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/disney-q2-2022-earnings-streaming-1235144837/
Disney once again beat Wall Street expectations last quarter in streaming, adding 7.9 million Disney+ subscribers, and suggesting that the company may be positioned to take a lead in what has become a cutthroat race to the top in streaming.
While Wall Street expectations for Disney+ were varied, a midpoint expectation was 4.5 million to 5 million adds.
Disney reported revenue of $19.2 billion and income of $3.7 billion, with earnings per share of $1.08. Wall Street expectations were for revenue of $20.1 billion, operating income of $3.3 billion, and EPS of $1.17. The EPS miss could be due to a change in tax regulations, which saw the company’s effective tax rate balloon from 8.8 percent a year ago to 45.8 percent last quarter. Disney also took a $1 billion hit related to ending content licensing agreements early that it could use it on its own streaming service. Disney didn’t break out what that programming was, but it is likely the output deal with Netflix, including the streaming services’ Marvel series.
