Disney’s $52 billion Fox acquisition would mean Disney takes a bigger share of declining box office revenues.
In 2017, a combined Disney Buena Vista and 21st Century Fox would represent 40 percent of the top 15 highest-grossing movies in the U.S. and 31 percent of total domestic box office revenue, according to Box Office Mojo.
Adding Fox films like “Logan” and “Boss Baby” to Disney blockbusters “Beauty and the Beast” and “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” would give the combined company over $3 billion in gross box office revenue this year. Alone, Disney’s Buena Vista raked in $1.8 billion, while Fox totaled $1.3 billion so far this year.
