I’m in Hollywood - Chapter 1232
[The first thousand one hundred and ninety-seventh chapter?]
Gravity is in its third week while Eric is out on vacation with the kids.
Compared with the second week, the box office of “Gravity” finally showed a relatively large drop in the third week, but the overall box office was only 33%.
As of December 9, the film has collected another 92.87 million US dollars, and the cumulative North American box office has quickly reached 377.56 million US dollars.
Although the Firefly Group has not released detailed breakdown data, the media with supernatural powers quickly discovered that among the $92.87 million box office in the third week of “Gravity”, the box office from Imax theaters is still as high as $23.96 million, which means that North American theaters have been nearly full for three weeks in a row.
Only the box office produced by theaters exceeds that of most movies with more than 2,000 screens. This terrifying ability to attract money has also made all theaters in North America jealous, and they have begun to plan to get involved in the field of giant-screen movies.
REG (Regal-E-Group), the largest theater chain in North America, also directly sent an invitation to Firefly Group to acquire Imax Cinema in Firefly’s hands at a high price, which was naturally rejected without hesitation.
The lack of its own theater chain resources has always been a shortcoming of Firefly Group. Now that it has finally owned a high-end theater chain, it is naturally impossible for the company to let go easily.
However, in order to prevent other giant screen formats from competing with Imax in the market, Firefly Group did not refuse the request of major cinema chains to purchase the Imax projection system.
At present, the number of Imax screens in the world is still a long way from the saturation of the market. Firefly Group is not afraid that other cinema chains will compete with the company itself after owning Imax screens.
Moreover, with the increase in the number of Imax screens, in addition to the projection system revenue, Imax can also obtain continuous revenue in the later stage of film source conversion, camera rental and even system consumables maintenance.
Playing outside with three little guys for more than a week, on the afternoon of December 11, Eric hurriedly set off from Nassau, the capital of Bahamas, to fly back all the way from Joanna’s call from Martha’s Vineyard. New York.
In the evening, Eric rushed to the manor on Martha’s Vineyard. Cindy had successfully given birth to a baby boy, and was surrounded by ‘women’ on the ‘bed’.
Seeing Eric’s appearance, Cindy, who was still a little tired, immediately raised her arm slightly, and showed Eric the little dot wrapped in her arm.
Eric walked to the ‘bed’ and sat down, took one of Cindy’s hands and shook it, looked at some little guy carefully, and then asked softly, “Are you okay?”
Cindy nodded .
Kevin and Hawaii, who came in with Eric, both walked to their mother’s side and looked at the little guy curiously, but Emma didn’t recognize her at all. The tender voice said: “Aunt Cindy, Aunt Cindy, can I take a look at the little Baby?”
Cindy smiled and whispered: “Of course.”
Eric reached out and helped Emma climb the ‘bed’, little The girl leaned closer to Cindy again and looked at the little boy in the ‘woman’s arms with curiosity. After a while, she couldn’t help but stretch out her hand, but she didn’t touch it sensible, she just flashed her big eyes and said: ” Aunt Cindy, he’s so cute.”
“Oh, thank you.”
“Does he have a name?” Emma immediately added: “I’ve been thinking of a lot of names for the little baby these days. But Dad said that the little baby’s Mom is the best name.
Cindy glanced at Eric and smiled, “Not yet.”
After saying this for a while, Joanna knew that Eric and Cindy both wanted some alone time, and came over to shout He got Emma out of bed, and whispered in the man’s ear: “Eric, it’s all right here, Vicky and I will go back to Long Island first.”
Eric nodded, he just entered’ The door’s door found that in addition to the nanny and nurse, only Joanna and Virginia were left in the room. The girl had long since disappeared, and Linda was not there either. Eric knew when she was on the phone a few days ago. Received an endorsement and needed to go to Paris.
Although it is not said on the surface, the ‘women’ people are still a little concerned about the fact that Cindy gave birth to a child.
He got up and sent the ‘woman’ and the children to the ‘door’, and instructed the twins who came with him to take them back to East Hampton by helicopter, and Eric returned to Cindy.
Cindy’s ‘female’ assistant, Catherine Neumann, had also left the room with the nurses and nannies.
There was no one else in the room, Cindy handed the little guy over, Eric quickly caught it, looked at the little guy with his eyes closed in his arms, and asked the ‘female’ humanely, “Have you decided on a name?”
Cindy opened her mouth and hesitated, but then asked, “What about you?”
Eric smiled and said, “You know I have no talent for naming names, and Xia Xia doesn’t know what will happen when she grows up. Blame me.”
“Xia Xia’s name is very nice,” Cindy said, paused, then with a bit of lack of confidence, whispered: “Do you think it’s okay to be the same as you? Eric, Little Eric Williams.”
“I always feel that the little guy with the same name as his father will be very useless when he grows up,” Eric smiled, still looking at the ‘woman’ frankly, said: ” Besides, you don’t want them to be villains to stab me every night in the future, right?”
Cindy didn’t expect too much in her heart, she heard the words softly: “That’s fine, I don’t want them to be villains to stab me. ”
Then the atmosphere was silent for a moment.
Eric actually understands that because there is no marriage, what the ‘women’ worry about is the identity of the little ones.
Kevin and Hawaii were only exposed in the first half of the year because of Para ‘Mon”s little actions. Although they looked down on Para ‘Mon”s actions on the surface, Eric knew that Virginia and Joanna were right in their hearts. This is actually kind of happy.
Thinking of this, Eric quickly made a decision, looked at Cindy, who was obviously disappointed in his expression, and said, “So, contact a magazine recently, and let’s shoot a cover together.”
Cindy was originally a little disappointed .
Her eyes lit up immediately, and she actually didn’t want her children to be known to the public many years later, like Kevin and Hawaii.
If Eric’s public recognition can be obtained, then the name and the like really don’t matter.
However, after hesitating for a while, Cindy said, “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 at that time. Of course, it must be’ Female’,” Eric said, seeing Cindy roll his eyes lightly, then continued with a smile: “As long as you and the little guy are safe, everything else doesn’t matter. Well, by the way, you Have you notified the family?”
“Mom and dad will be here tomorrow, as well as Chris and Danny,” Cindy said, squinting Eric again and saying, “Mom is looking forward to seeing her grandson, but , if Dad beats you, I won’t care.”
Eric smiled and said: “I promise not to fight back.”
Cindy reached out and took the little guy back, saying: “Then call Peter, However, I’d like to add my last name, Peter Crawford Williams.”
“Okay,” Eric nodded, remembering something, and added, “I thought you’d have a better one.’ Sex’ name.”
Cindy asked curiously, “Why do you say that?”
“It’s nothing,” Eric shook his head and said nonchalantly, “It’s just a feeling.
” The son of Li, said: “Our little guy will definitely be great when he grows up, so the name is just ordinary.”
Eric has never understood why Westerners who advocate ‘sex’ are naming names. There is no creativity in the aspect, and hearing the words just nods in agreement.
Cindy touched little Peter’s light blonde hair, looked up again, and said, “Eric, in fact, we don’t need to contact the magazine, we can announce the news now, use my Facebook.” He
has been keeping a low profile and expanding Different from Google’s search engine, since September in the second half of the year, Yahoo has begun to promote its social ‘social’ network tool Facebook, which was revised from Yahoo’s blog.
In a few months, with Yahoo’s efforts to promote, the new Facebook has more than 80 million registered users worldwide, which is definitely a very remarkable data in the current network environment.
Under the continuous downward trend of the Nasdaq index, Yahoo’s stock price in the fourth quarter has even remained stable at around $100 billion because of the positive stimulation of the rapid growth of Facebook users.
Cindy has been a star user of Yahoo since the days of blogging, and was invited to ring the bell for Yahoo’s IPo last year.
Despite the revamp at this point, Cindy remains one of the most followed supermodels on Facebook, with a following as much as many more popular pop stars.
Feeling Cindy’s hopeful gaze, Eric nodded and said, “If you don’t think this is not formal enough, of course it’s fine.”
After a few words of discussion, Eric got up and went to find Cindy’s mind. Laptops and digital cameras, and Katherine Neumann called in for help, and quickly took a few sets of photos.
However, before the news was sent, Eric called several Yahoo leaders and warned them carefully.
Although he won’t be in the discussion in the world, but the little guy has just been born, Eric still won’t allow a disappointment such as cyber violence.
Hanging up the phone, Cindy, with the help of Katherine Neumann next to her, also picked a photo and showed it to the man, saying, “Eric, how about this one?
” In the photo of people appearing together, Eric and Cindy surrounded the little guy together. The difference is not really big. Eric looked at it and thought it was good, so he nodded.
So Cindy asked Catherine Neumann to hand the notebook to Eric and said, “My account has been logged in, you can send it.”
Eric took the notebook and found the browser to open Cindy’s Facebook The home page, skillfully loaded the photo, typed a line of words on it, then turned the screen to the ‘woman’, and said, “Is it okay?”
Cindy glanced at it and smiled: “If you write this, Emma may Sad. It should be the fourth, not the third.”
Eric thought about it for a while, and felt that it was the same. Although it was not his own, he had always treated Emma as a ‘daughter’.
So I changed it, and after confirming it was correct, I just pressed send.
Although the west coast is still some time away from get off work, the east coast is already twilight.
Many people who were either working at the end of the day or preparing dinner, all heard some explosive ‘sex’ news that spread like lightning in the next hour.
“The fourth child of the Williams family is born.”
Speaking of which, the news of Cindy’s pregnancy is not a secret in the circle, and it is even a semi-public matter.
It was only taken from Eric’s own power, and the media basically did not take the initiative to report it. Occasionally, there were some bold ones, but they were just mentioned in a roundabout way.
Now, Eric and Cindy suddenly took the initiative to announce the news, and unabashedly attached photos, so the discussion quickly boiled over.
After all, if it’s just the children of some celebrities, there may be gimmicks, but after all, it’s just the children of celebrities. Fans care about it and bless it. The magazine will take the opportunity to get the cover to boost sales, and things will slowly fade away. .
But Eric Williams’ child means too much.
You must know that although the collapse of Nasdaq caused Eric’s own wealth to shrink from a peak of more than 600 billion US dollars, due to the continuous strong expansion of the entire Firefly system in the second half of the year, as well as the adverse effects of various companies in the Firefly system Despite the dazzling business performance of the trend, Eric’s personal wealth at this time still reached a number that everyone can’t reach.
Specifically, before the news of Peter’s birth was announced, the popularity of related topics was actually not high.
But after the news of the little guy’s birth was announced, relevant statistics quickly appeared on some websites.
Although it was briefly surpassed by several other companies in the Firefly system for a period of time in the middle of the year, the Firefly Group has always been the core asset of Eric over the years.
Without the continuous cash support provided by the Firefly Group, the entire Firefly system would not have developed to its current scale.
Through the stock repurchase ‘operation’ in the second half of the year, Eric finally got back 5.6% of Firefly Group’s shares, making his own shareholding in Firefly Group rise to 79.3% again.
Moreover, with the recent success of the promotion of 3D and Imax films led by the Firefly Group, coupled with the acquisition of Hasbro and other expansion actions, the industry’s valuation of the Firefly Group has also hit a new high, reaching US$160 billion at this time. .
This alone has brought Eric more than $120 billion in personal wealth.
Although the collapse of the Nasdaq index has shrunk a large number of technology stocks owned by Eric, the market value of Yahoo, which Eric holds more than 78% of the shares, has remained stable at around $100 billion in the past six months. www.sonicmtl.com This once again brought Eric a fortune of nearly $80 billion.
Firefly Investments has a 51% absolute controlling stake in Nokia, with a current market value of $117.1 billion.
Cisco, which holds 26% of its shares, has fallen from the highest point of 600 billion US dollars all the way, but the skinny camel is bigger than horses, and its market value at this time still reaches 159.3 billion US dollars.
Therefore, just the assets of the four companies, Firefly Group, Yahoo, Nokia and Cisco, make Eric’s personal wealth figure reach 300 billion US dollars.
In addition, with the continued popularity of Fireflyer players, Firefly’s consensus valuation has exceeded $50 billion.
Coupled with a series of assets such as Qualcomm, NT, Amazon, Apple and other assets that Firefly invested heavily in, Eric’s personal wealth increased by about $70 billion.
Comprehensive statistics, Eric’s net worth at this time is still more than 370 billion US dollars.
Although it has shrunk by nearly half from the peak of more than 600 billion US dollars in the middle of the year, compared with Eric’s net worth of 315.5 billion US dollars announced by the “Forbes” rich list at the beginning of this year, this year, Eric’s personal wealth is still An increase of more than 50 billion US dollars, but this is already equivalent to the entire net worth of several of the richest people in the top 10 of Forbes list.
Therefore, a newly born little guy, in addition to the series of halo of his parents, instantly became the heir of hundreds of billions of dollars of wealth, which can no longer be described by simple words such as being born with a golden spoon. .
