Scarlett Johansson sues Disney over ‘Black Widow’ release

Why Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney? Hollywood’s famous actress Scarlett Johansson has filed a lawsuit against Hollywood’s well-known company Disney, expressing displeasure over the release of her first solo film named MCU’s Black Widow. According to the information, in this lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles court, it has been said that Disney did not release the film only in theaters but also released it on OTT and also violated the promise made to them.

After this, Johansson said that a significant part of her fee for working in the film was also to come from the income after earning a fixed amount in the cinemas of the film, but Disney decided to release the film in theaters as well as OTT. But even releasing has caused heavy damage. Responding with this, Disney has described the lawsuit as sad.

In a similar decision, when Warner Bros. Studios decided to release their films directly on HBO Max, it had to pay a huge amount separately to all the actors of its films. If a similar decision is taken in the lawsuit filed by Johansson, then the film production companies may have to think afresh in this regard.

Scarlett Johansson feels that if the film had been released only in cinemas all over the world, then its earning amount could have been much higher. Disney had announced the release of the film ‘Black Widow’ in theaters and OTT simultaneously in this March. But as soon as the outbreak of Corona spread, like all other films, its release was continuously postponed. After delaying all the dates, the film ‘Black Widow’ was released in theaters on 9th of this month.

Along with this, the film was released on Disney Plus OTT with a premium fee of $ 30. The film ‘Black Widow’ has made the record for the highest first weekend collection of films released in theaters since March last year. The film ‘Black Widow’, which could be released in only 4160 screens, earned $ 80.4 million on the first weekend. Earlier, ‘Fast and Furious 9’, which was released on June 25, got 4179 screens but its first weekend gross was only $ 70 million.

  1. Scarlett Johansson is suing Disney over its decision to release superhero movie Black Widow on streaming at the same time as in theaters, alleging a breach of contract which cost the star millions of dollars.

    Johansson, one of Hollywood’s biggest and top-paid stars, was entitled to a percentage of box office receipts from the much-anticipated Marvel film, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday at Los Angeles Superior Court.

    The film was originally due for a big-screen release last year, but was delayed multiple times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and was eventually released this month simultaneously in theaters and on Disney+.

  2. Box office analysts have cited the film’s streaming debut as a major factor in a lacklustre – by Marvel film standards – release for a film that has grossed just over $150 million (roughly Rs. 1,110 crores) in domestic theaters in three weeks.

    “It’s no secret that Disney is releasing films like Black Widow directly onto Disney+ to increase subscribers and thereby boost the company’s stock price – and that it’s hiding behind COVID-19 as a pretext to do so,” said Johansson’s attorney John Berlinski in a statement to AFP.

    “This will surely not be the last case where Hollywood talent stands up to Disney and makes it clear that, whatever the company may pretend, it has a legal obligation to honour its contracts,” he added.
