I’m in Hollywood - Chapter 1197
During the holiday of Eric with the children, the release of Gravity also entered the third week.
Compared with the second week, the third week of “Gravity” finally had a relatively large decline, but the overall price was only 33%.
As of December 9, the film received another 92.27 million US dollars, and the cumulative box office in North America quickly reached 375.76 million US dollars.
Although the Firefly Group did not publish detailed breakdown data, the vast media of Shentong quickly discovered that the box office of IMAX Cinema in the third week of “Gravity Gravity” was still up to 23.96 million US dollars, which means The 100 IMAX theaters in North America have been almost full for three consecutive weeks.
Only 100 IMAX theaters produced more than 2,000 movies at the box office. This horrible absorbing ability also made all the theaters in North America look hot, and began to enter the field of giant screen movies. .
REG (Regal-Entertainment-Group), the largest theater in North America, also directly sent an invitation to the Firefly Group to acquire the IMAX theater in the hands of fireflies, and naturally refused without hesitation.
The lack of its own cinema resources has always been a short-board for the Firefly Group. Now it is easy to have a high-end cinema line, and the company naturally cannot easily let go.
However, in order to avoid other giant screen formats from competing with IMAX, the Firefly Group did not reject requests from major theaters to purchase IMAX projection systems.
There are still a long way to go before the global saturation of the IMAX screens. The Firefly Group is not afraid that other theaters will have an IMAX screen and compete with the company itself.
Moreover, the number of IMAX screens has increased. In addition to the revenue of the projection system, IMAX has also achieved continuous revenue in the later stages of film conversion, camera rental and system consumable maintenance.
With three little guys playing outside for more than a week, on the afternoon of December 11, I received a call from Joanna from Martha’s Vineyard. Eric quickly set off for Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, to fly back to New York.
In the evening, Eric rushed to the manor of Martha’s Vineyard. Cindy had successfully given birth to a baby boy, and was weakly surrounded by women in bed.
Seeing that Eric appeared, Cindy, who was still a little tired, immediately lifted her arm and showed her little light in her arms to Eric. Eric walked over to the bed and sat down. He took a hand from Cindy and grabbed it. He carefully looked at a little guy and asked softly: “Are you alright?”
Cindy nodded: “Yeah.”
Kevin and Hawaii, who followed Eric, came to their mothers and looked at the little one curiously. Emma didn’t recognize her life. She squatted at the bed and leaned on her body and said: “Cindy Auntie Aunt Cindy, can I see Little Baby?”
Cindy smiled and whispered: “Of course.”
Eric reached out and helped Emma climb into the bed. The little girl went to Cindy and took a look. She curiously looked at the little boy in the woman’s arms. After a moment, she couldn’t help but stretch her hand, but she was sensible and didn’t touch. Just flashing big eyes, said: “Aunt Cindy, he is so cute.”
“Oh, thank you.”
“Does he have a name?” Emma immediately said again: “I have thought a lot about Baby’s name these days. But Dad said that the name of Baby is still the best for Mom.”
Cindy glanced at Eric and smiled. “Not yet.”
After saying this for a while, Joanna knew that Eric and Cindy both wanted some time alone, came over and shouted Emma to get out of bed, and sneaked into the man’s ear: “Eric, this is all right, I and Vicki will return to Long Island first.”
Eric nodded. He had just entered the door and found that in addition to the babysitters and nurses in the room, only Joanna and Virginia were left. The girl had disappeared, and Linda was not there. Eric was in the first few places. When Tiantong called, she knew that she had recently received an endorsement and needed to go to Paris.
Although the surface does not say, women are still somewhat concerned about the fact that Cindy gave birth to a child.
She got up and sent the woman and the children to the door, and the twins who came with me personally sent the helicopter back to East Hampton, and Eric returned to Cindy. Cindy’s female assistant, Catherine Neumann, also left the room with the nurse and the nanny.
There was no other person in the room. Cindy handed the little guy over. Eric quickly picked up and watched the little eyes in his arms, and asked the woman, “Is the name a good name?”
Cindy opened her mouth, and some of her words stopped, but she asked: “What about you?”
Eric smiled and said: “You know that I have no talent in name. I don’t know how to blame me after I grow up in summer and summer.”
“The name of Xia Xia is very good,” said Cindy. After she paused, she took a few points of lack of confidence. Xiaoqu: “Do you think it is as good as you? Eric, Eric Eric Williams.”
“The little guy who always feels the same name as Dad grows up will be very unprofessional,” Eric smiled, still looking at the woman honestly, saying: “And, you don’t want them to be small people every night. Me?”
In fact, Cindy’s heart did not report too much expectation. He whispered: “That’s it, I don’t want them to be a villain.”
Then the atmosphere was silent for a moment.
Eric actually understands that because there is no marriage, women are worried about the identity of the little ones.
Kevin and Hawaii were only exposed in the first half of the year because of Paramount’s small movements. Although it was ugly on the surface, Eric knew that Virginia and Joanna actually knew this. It is a little happy.
Thinking about it, Eric quickly made a decision and looked at Cindy, who was obviously disappointed in his expression: “So, contact a magazine recently, let’s take a cover together.”
Cindy’s disappointing eyes suddenly lit up, and she didn’t want her children to be known to the public many years later, like Kevin and Hawaii. If you can get Eric’s public recognition, then the name and the like, it really does not matter.
However, after hesitation, Cindy still said: “So, will it be very troublesome?”
“The first batch of bodyguards trained by Robert will be available next year. I will give you a few more when I am, of course, it must be a woman,” Eric said, seeing Cindy gently flipping his eyes and laughing. Continued: “As long as you and the little guy are safe, the other doesn’t matter. Well, yes, have you notified the family about this?”
“Mom and Dad will come over tomorrow, and Chris and Danny,” Cindy said and tilted Eric back. “Mom is looking forward to seeing her grandson, but if Dad is jealous of you, I don’t care.”
Eric smiled and said: “I promise not to fight back.”
Cindy reached over and re-taken the little guy back. He said, “That’s good for Peter, but I want to add my last name, Peter Crawford Williams.”
“Okay,” Eric nodded, remembering something, and said: “I thought you would have a more personal name.”
Cindy is curious: “Why would you say that?”
“Nothing,” Eric shook his head, if nothing happened: “It’s just a feeling.”
Cindy didn’t think much, and turned his eyes to his son in his arms. He said: “Our little ones will definitely be great when they grow up. So, the name is ordinary.”
Eric has always been very ignorant of why Westerners who admire their personality are not creative in their names, and they only nod their heads.
Cindy touched Peter’s faint blond hair and looked up again. “Eric, in fact, don’t need to contact the magazine, we can announce the news now, use my Facebook.”
Unlike the Google search engine, which has been keeping a low-key expansion, Yahoo has started to promote its social networking tool Facebook, which was revised by Yahoo! Blog, in September of the second half of the year, which is expected to occupy all of the later two Internet brands.
In a few months, with the promotion of Yahoo!, the new Facebook has more than 80 million registered users worldwide, which is definitely a great data in the current network environment.
In the continued downward trend of the Nasdaq index, Yahoo’s share price in the fourth quarter has been steadily maintained at around $100 billion due to the rapid growth of Facebook users.
Cindy has been a star user of Yahoo since the blog era. Last year, he was invited to participate in Yahoo’s IPO ringing ceremony. Although it was revised at this time, Cindy is still one of the most popular supermodels on Facebook, and the number of fans is no less than that of many popular pop singers.
Feeling the mind of Cindy, Eric nodded: “If you don’t think this is not formal enough, of course, no problem.”
After discussing a few words, seeing Cindy’s mind, Eric got up and went to find a laptop and a digital camera, and called Catherine Neumann to help, and quickly took a few photos.
However, before the news was sent, Eric made a phone call to several of Yahoo’s responsible persons and took a closer look. Although it will not be discussed in the accident world, but the little guy is just born, Eric will not allow the violent situation such as cyber violence.
Hanging up the phone, Cindy, with the help of Catherine Neumann, also picked a photo and showed it to the man. “Eric, how about this?”
I just shot the photos of the three people together. Eric and Cindy put the little guy in the middle. The difference is not big. Eric looked at it and felt good. He nodded.
So Cindy asked Catherine Neumann to hand the notebook to Eric, saying: “My account has been landing, you can send it.”
Eric took the notebook, found the browser to open Cindy’s Facebook page, skillfully loaded the photo, and typed a line on it, then turned the screen to the woman and said, “Can you?”
Cindy glanced up and smiled. “You can write this, Emma may be sad. It should be the fourth, not the third.”
Eric thought about it and felt that although he was not his own, he always treated Emma as a daughter. So I changed it, and after confirming it, I pressed it and sent it.
Although there are still some times when the West Coast is away from work hours, the East Coast is already coming.
Many people who were busy with the last day of work, or who were preparing dinner, heard an explosion of lightning news in just one hour.
“The fourth child of the Williams family was born.”
Speaking of it, the news of Cindy’s pregnancy is not a secret in the circle, and it is even a semi-open matter.
It’s just taking photos of Eric’s own power. The media basically don’t report on their own initiative. Occasionally there are some bold ones, and they just put a word on the corner.
Now, Eric and Cindy suddenly announced the news and attached photos without any disguise. So, the theory quickly boiled up.
After all, if there are only some celebrity children, there may be gimmicks, but after all, they are only celebrity children. Fans care about it, blessing, magazines take the opportunity to get a cover to boost sales, things will slowly fade.
But the children of Eric Williams mean too much.
It should be noted that although the collapse of Nasdaq has caused Eric’s own wealth to shrink from the peak of more than 600 billion US dollars, the entire firefly system has continued to expand strongly in the second half of the year, and the companies in the firefly system have reversed. Erik’s personal wealth at this time still reaches a number that everyone can’t hope for.
Specifically, before the announcement of the birth of Little Peter, the popularity of related topics is actually not high.
But after the news of the birth of the little guy was published, relevant statistics soon appeared on some websites.
Although it was briefly surpassed by several other companies in the Firefly system during the middle of the year, the Firefly Group has been the core asset of Eric for years. Without the constant support of the Firefly Group, the entire firefly system is unlikely to grow to its current size.
Through the stock repurchase operation in the second half of the year, Eric eventually recovered 5.6% of the Firefly Group shares, making his shareholding in the Firefly Group rise to 79.3%.
Moreover, with the recent success of the 3D and IMAX film promotion led by the Firefly Group, coupled with the expansion of the acquisition of Hasbro, the industry’s valuation of the Firefly Group has reached new heights, reaching US$160 billion. .
This alone will bring more than $120 billion in personal wealth to Eric.
Although the collapse of the Nasdaq index has caused a large number of technology stocks owned by Eric to shrink sharply, Yahoo’s shareholding ratio of more than 78% Yahoo has remained steadily at around $100 billion in the past six months. Bringing nearly $80 billion in wealth to Eric.
Firefly invests in 51% of Nokia, with a current market capitalization of $117.1 billion. Cisco, which has a shareholding ratio of 26%, has fallen from the highest point of $600 billion, but the dead camel is bigger than Ma, and the market value of this time is still $159.3 billion.
Therefore, the assets of the four companies, Firefly Group, Yahoo, Nokia, and Cisco, have made Eric’s personal wealth reach $300 billion.
In addition, with the continued popularity of the Fireflyer player, the general valuation of Firefly Electronics has exceeded $50 billion. Coupled with a series of assets such as Qualcomm, LTD, Sprint, Amazon, Apple, etc., which are heavily invested by Firefly, Eric’s personal wealth has once again increased by about $70 billion.
According to comprehensive statistics, Eric still has more than 370 billion US dollars at this time.
Although it has shrunk by nearly half compared to the mid-year’s more than $600 billion, Eric’s personal wealth remains the same as Eric’s $315.5 billion in net worth published at the Forbes Rich List earlier this year. It has grown by more than $50 billion, but this is already the equivalent of several of the top ten in the Forbes list.
Therefore, a newly born little guy, in addition to a series of auras of his parents, has instantly become the heir to hundreds of billions of dollars of wealth, which has not even been described as a simple phrase with a golden spoon. .
