Disney Axes “Fox” From 20th Century Fox Name

The Hollywood Reporter reports:

Almost a year after Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox closed, the studio is making some name changes. The Fox moniker has been dropped from the studio’s 20th Century and Searchlight labels, which will now be branded as, simply, Searchlight Pictures and 20th Century Studios.

The original 20th Century Fox was formed in a merger in 1935 between Twentieth Century Pictures and Fox Film Corporation, while the studio’s art house Searchlight label just celebrated its 25th anniversary.

In 2019, Disney and 20th Century/Searchlight titles made a combined $13.1 billion at the global box office, with 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures title making up at $2 billion of that gross.
