Wanda official website June 1, 2017announcementIt shows that "Wandering Earth" was originally produced by Wanda Film, Chinese Film and Beijing Culture.

Accompanied by Wu Jing to play "Wandering" Beijing culture wins first week
Five days before the first month of the first month, "Wandering Earth" has achieved a total box office income of 1.592 billion yuan, temporarily leading. Does this mean that Beijing culture and Chinese film as the producer and distributor of "Wandering Earth" will be the biggest winners?
Beijing Culture announced on January 24, 2017 that the total investment in the movie "Wandering Earth" project is 107.5 million yuan. among them,Company investmentThe cost of film production is 72.5 million yuan. The propaganda and issuance cost of the company is not less than 25 million yuan and not more than 35 million yuan.
In fact, in recent years, many movie boxing houses in Beijing's cultural investment are quite high. In addition to this box office, which has already reached the top of the list of "Wandering Earth", the previously released "Wolf Wolf 2" "I am not a drug god" and " The nameless generation has also achieved high box office and high reputation, which has brought considerable benefits to Beijing culture.
Beijing Culture announced on December 6, 2018 that as of December 4, the "No Names" accumulated box office revenue of about 666 million yuan, more than 50% of the company's audited consolidated financial report revenue in the most recent fiscal year, the company The box office revenue from "The Nameless Generation" is about 60 million yuan to 70 million yuan.
The third quarterly report of 2018 shows that Beijing culture achieved its mother in the first three quarters of 2018.Net profit246.59 million yuan, an increase of 144.55%. At that time, "The Nameless Generation" was still released, and the expected box office revenue has exceeded the total net profit of Beijing culture in the first three quarters.
Beijing cultureshareholderThe behavior is contrary to the high box office income. In the past month, Beijing Culture released a number of announcements about “shareholder shares were frozen” and “passive shareholding of shareholders holding more than 5% of shares”. Beijing Culture issued three consecutive announcements on January 24, January 26, and January 31, 2019, respectively. Due to the tight market financing environment, the time limit for the trust plan of Huali Holdings to increase its shareholding in the company expired. According to the agreement, The trust plan is realized by the funder to realise the trust property, resulting in the trust plan to passively reduce the company's shares.
Compared with Chinese film and Beijing culture betting "Wandering Earth", Light Media participated in the investment of "Flying Life" and "Crazy Alien". The pre-sale box office ranks very high and was once regarded as the Spring Festival file. The biggest winner.
In 2018, Light Media has produced a lot of word of mouth. In 2018PerformanceIn the notice, the company expects a net profit of 1.26 billion yuan to 1.5 billion yuan in 2018, an increase of 54.57% to 84.01%. In 2018, Light Media participated in the investment, issued and included in the reporting period of the box office a total of 15 films, the total box office was 7.38 billion yuan, including "Chinatown Detective 2" "Big World" "Over time together" "Thirteen "Wait. However, Light Media used to sell subsidiaries to support profits in 2018, actuallyOperating incomeThe year-on-year decline has left investors with a lingering fear.
A few happy families, there are still listed companies losing money.
February 10, listed companyWentou Holdings(600715),Shanghai movie(601595) separately issued relevant announcements about the box office of the movie "Wandering Earth". Wentou Holdings said that due to the small proportion of the company's participation in the investment of "Wandering Earth", as of 0:00 on February 10, the current operating income generated by the film has not yet formed a large scale, and has little impact on the company's performance. Shanghai Film said that as of February 7, the company's comprehensive income from "Wandering Earth" was temporarily -2.8 million yuan to -2.3 million yuan.
The new culture of investing in the "King of New Comedy" was also expected to be very high. On the 2nd of February, 2019, Wang Xin, the director of the New Culture, told the media that as long as the "King of New Comedy" and "Mermaid 2" achieved the upper-middle results, the company is expected to have a good income in 2019. However, from the current box office point of view, I am afraid that it is difficult to rely on the "King of New Comedy" to make a turnaround. As of 24:00 on February 7, the "New Comedy King" scored only 6.0 points (out of 10 points), and the decline in word of mouth seems to have become the bottleneck of box office growth. Not long before the release of "The King of New Comedy", the new culture expected a profit of 24.64 million yuan to 98.56 million yuan in 2018, a year-on-year decline of 90%-60%. The reasons for the company's expected decline in performance include factors such as changes in the market environment of the film and television industry, which have caused some film and television projects to develop and produce less than expected.
Word of mouth encounters Waterloo is not only the "king of the new comedy", but also the "Little Pig Peggy Over the Year" with the trailer "Pec is 啥". As of now, the "Pigpe Peggy's New Year" has a score of only 4.6, which may be unexpected for Ali Pictures.
The box office of the Spring Festival is still the focus of the various capital competitions, but which listed company can seize the most in this year's Spring Festival box office? How does the decline in film word-of-mouth and box office revenue affect the performance of listed companies? There is still a lot of suspense that everyone should wait and see...
