Published in Germany: 28 November 2014

** U.S. Box-Office: “Mockin Jay” easily flies to top of charts; even though $121.9 mil. is 23% lower as “Catching Fire” and Katniss could not beat the openings of the other split-in-two finales of “Harry Potter” and “Twilight Saga”; “Big Hero 6” deflates a bit, but still aiming for $200 mil. as “Interstellar” looks to reach an excellent $175 mil. at end of run; expansion does wonders again for “The Theory of Everything” but “Foxctacher” has best average again; “St. Vincent” and “Birdman” have success beyond art houses; [BoxOff];

** U.S. News: NATO and deaf and hard of hearing advocacy groups reach agreement to file joint recommendations with the Department of Justice regarding its Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on captioning equipment in U.S. movie theatres; at $8.08, Q3 average ticket price is down 3.6% over Q2 summer blockbusters [Kino];

Following SoftBank debacle, DreamWorks Animation loses Hasbro as buyer and wins Hearst as investor in AwesomenessTV; MPAA launches “Where to Watch” [Int1];
