21st Century Fox Goes Out With A Bang
Fox spent $50 million on producing the film which makes the surprise success that much better. This is Fox's last film produced, as last month Disney closed a $71 billion deal and now has acquisition of 21st Century Fox. You could say that Fox went out with a bang!
