Current BIG Movie & TV studios in 2020

Hollywood is a strange and influential place in the world, full of pedophiles, rich and famous, etc. The famous studios are all in one place and they're obviously not competing when it comes to politics making it like a political monopoly.

Film & TV studios range from Major, Mini-Major, Independents to Financier Studios but in this article with going to talk about the Big Five Major Studios.

The current "Big Five" are Disney, Paramount, Sony, Warner Bros., and Universal.

 Twentieth Century Fox was purchased by The Walt Disney Company by Australian-American Media Mongol Robert Murdoc for over $50 billion dollars, he sold most Fox assets except for Fox Network, Fox Sports, Fox News, and a few others. This was endorsed by U.S. President Trump, saying this will give an opportunity to create jobs. He currently holds rights to the Fox logos and trademarks.  R.I.P. Fox

Disney has been heavily criticized for anti-competition and buying many assets and properties, almost like taking over everything. Owning the majority percentage of Hulu, ESPN, FX, ABC, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic, The Simpsons, Aliens vs. Predator, Die Hard, Planet of the Apes and much more! Disney was criticized for purchasing ABC back in the '90s at the time. Corporatism isn't capitalism. Disney is all for money, power, and politics. Which is sad. Dinsey Star Wars and Captian Marvel have been politically woke and it will get worse by this decade.
Disney has made there own streaming service called Dinsey+ which contains all Dinsey movies, Star Wars, Marvel, National Geographic, The Simpsons and Fox Family-friendly movies while adult Fox films and Touchstone Movies are on Hulu. Since launch, Disney+ accounts have been hack by the millions, and Dinsey has been censoring on its platform for political correctness. With the exception of The Mandalorian, Dinsey+ original content is crap. It's best to avoid anything Disney related.

Disney has over 36.3% market and a HUGE enormous library of movies and TV, this would give Disney an opportunity to compete against Netflix.

So far Dinsey and other studios cannot come up with anything new or original so they doing cash-crab remakes and reboots.

Warner Bros. has been so far on track to compete against Dinsey but Warner Bros. is kind-of mixed with diverse opinions on what content (movie, TV, game) is left, center or right it really depends on who made it, unlike Dinsey. WB probably doesn't care who's on the spectrum but just wants the money, who knows. They have been making billions of dollars of popular films like The Dark Knight, The Hobbit, Joker, Wonder Woman, Dunkirk, and a few others. Making an increase of 16.3% market share.

WB has a lot of properties such as DC Comics, Lego, The Wizard of Oz, Looney Tunes, Scooby-Doo, Tom & Jerry, Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Mortal Kombat, ER, Friends, The Waltons, Babalon 5 (distributor only), Pre-1986 MGM film library and more.

Recently, WB has made brought back its Animation division in 2013, called WB Animation Group (WAG). Their top gross animated films are the Lego movies, WB has made original movies like Stork and Small Foot but they didn't do so well in the box office. A Scooby-Doo reboot called Scoob will be released sometime in 2020.

On October 22, 2016, AT&T announced a deal to buy Time Warner for $108.7 billion in an effort to increase its media holdings. On June 12, 2018, after years of awaiting approval by the U.S. Department of Justice,  AT&T was given permission by U.S. District Court Judge Richard J. Leon to go ahead with its $85 billion deal for Time Warner, but the DOJ had attempted to stop the merger fearing it would harm competition. The merger closed two days after, becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary and division of AT&T with a new name, WarnerMedia, announced the next day.

This has made a change to WB, as the new owners, AT&T has been changing and restructuring the corporate structure of WarnerMedia but not only that but also interfering was studio and company interference like the rumor of shutting down DC comics, changing logo designs and canceling Swamp Thing ( for some reason?).

Launching in 2020, WarnerMedia has announced its own streaming service called HBO Max, containing EVERYTHING from the Warner Bros, NewLine, TurnerTV, Castle Rock, Pre-1986 MGM. and HBO library, as well as third-parties and original content. Dinsey+ and Hbo Max has been making Netflix nervous.

Another value added to the service is all movies from  Studio Ghibli via GKIDS and all seasons of South Park

Warner Bros. is a mixed bag, it really depends on who's making the content, like Christopher Nolan, Clint Eastwood, and Denis Villeneuve makes pretty good movies, but Patty Jenkins, Damon Lindelof, and J.J. Abrams not so much. Just stay away from CNN, HBO, Cartoon Network and the CW and their degenerate content.

Universal Studios, the studio is known for famous franchises thank's to Steven Speilberg and his company Amblin Entertainment including Jaws, Jurrasic Park, Back to the Future, An American Tale, Land Before Time, and more.

Universal has been bought many times and changing and switch employees until it was finally bought by Comcast in 2011. Not much to say, Universal has been milking the cow with direct-to-video sequels and low budget horror films with BlummingHouse Productions like The Purge. Universal's Illumination animated films have been...getting dry and way too modern. Universal purchased Dreamworks Animation for $4 billion dollars and has been somewhat successful. But Universal has been kissing china's buttcheeks recently, and yes Universal and its parent company are liberals.

Universal was going to make its own cinematic universe based on the famous movie monsters, but the future of that is unknown. Universal's top franchise so far is The Fast and the Furious series, making its own universe. They've turned USA channel into a combination of HBO and FX in a weird way. I have no idea what's so special about Mr. Robot.

They've also made deals with Independent studios for home entertainment distribution.

Universal's parent company Comcast/NBCUniversal will make there own streaming service called Peacock (named it after the NBC peacock logo)  the service is set to launch in April 2020. Containing content from NBCUniversal, Dreamworks Animation and surprisingly Lionsgate and original content like another Battlestar Galactic Reboot. (Damn you, Universal! Come up with something original)

So far, Universal is just a modern liberal meh...

Columbia Pictures (but actually Sony Pictures) has been going ups and downs. Famous for Spider-Man, The Grudge, Underworld, Stuart Level, Starship Troopers, Andacando, Charlie's Angels, Men in Black and a few more. Japanese company Sony Corporation purchased Columbia Pictures in 1989.

Like WB they are a mixed bag of content but the company itself is very liberal and more increasingly since 2014 after the North Korean hacks.

Sony is also responsible for starting unnecessary reboots of famous named franchises to milk the cow such as Spider-Man (twice).

Sony is also known to have a big television library about the size of Warner Bros.'s TV library, TV shows like Charlie's Angels, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, Shark Tank, The Dr. OZ Show., Helix, Seinfeld, The King of Queens, Community, Rules of Engagement, Breaking Bad and The Blacklist.

Sony Pictures Television recently acquired a 95% controlling stake in anime importer Funimation (liberal) for $143 million approved the US Department of Justice.

Sony is also known for its infamous music label, Sony Music and video game division, Sony Interactive Entertainment and Playstation.

Yes, Sony has a streaming service called Crackle and Playstation Vue. Playstation Now is for video games.

Over the years sony has gone downhill in quality over quality like Ghostbusters 2016, Charlie's Angels 2019, MIB: International, Spider-Man: Homecoming and The Last of Us Part 2 (game) but had success like Spider-Man Far from Home, Zombieland: Double-Tap, Angry Birds movie, and the 2 new Jumanji films.  If you see or interested in a Sony movie, show or game be cautious and look up who made it.

Last but not least, Paramount Pictures. They were losing their edge in the middle of the 2010s with low quilty content, consequently losing market share and made investment deals with blood-sucking China. In February 2016, Viacom CEO and newly appointed chairman Philippe Dauman announced that the conglomerate is in talks to find an investor to purchase a minority stake in Paramount. Sumner Redstone and his daughter Shari are reportedly opposed with the deal. On July 13, 2016, Wanda Group was in talks to acquire a 49% stake of Paramount. The talks with Wanda were dropped. On January 19, 2017, Shanghai Film Group Corp. and Huahua Media said they would finance at least 25% of all Paramount Pictures movies over a three-year period. Shanghai Film Group and Huahua Media, in the deal, would help distribute and market Paramount's features in China. At the time, the Wall Street Journal wrote that "nearly every major Hollywood studio has a co-financing deal with a Chinese company."

However, Paramount had restructured and started fresh on new strategies recently. On November 16, 2018, Paramount signed a multi-picture film deal with Netflix as part of Viacom's growth strategy, making Paramount the first major film studio to do so.

Bob Bakish, CEO of parent ViacomCBS, said in a statement that turnaround efforts "have firmly taken hold as the studio improved margins and returned to profitability. This month’s outstanding box-office performance of A Quiet Place, the first film produced and released under the new team at Paramount, is a clear sign of our progress."

Paramount has been focusing on animation recently with Paramount Animation to compete against Disney and Dreamworks. Paramount revealed a beautiful opening of the Animation logo. In the comments of, and SJW was complaining about "whiteness" of the opening logo.

"Well, it’s cute and a step in the right direction but “she” is still an idealized creation showcasing whiteness. White people aren’t the center of the universe or the only ones on the planet. I am tired of seeing only one type in marketing campaigns."

"Does every little thing have to involve politics? It’s a fictional character, made for logo animation. She’s only on screen for a bloody second. Get real."

In December 2019, ViacomCBS agreed to purchase a 49% stake in Miramax with Paramount handling distribution of the studio's 700-film library as well as its future releases. Also, Paramount will produce television series based on Miramax's IPs. The deal will be expected to close in the first quarter of 2020

CBS and Viacom have merged to create ViacomCBS, thus making CBS' film division, CBS films to have a new purpose to make original films for their CBS All-Access streaming service.

In 2018 Paramount Targeted By liberal Hispanic Protestors Over “Dismal” Hiring Record and lacked equal representation of Latinos. (Whatever the hell that means.)

So, far Paramount is growing and getting back to their game but my advice if they want to survive they shouldn't release WOKE movies like Tim Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate which bomb at the box office. They have been creating "some" original movies like John Krasinski's A Quiet Place and Sam Raimi & Alexander Aja's Crawl.

This is so far the BIG FIVE, there will be an article on the Mini-Majors and the Independents.
