CYNOPSIS DIGITAL – TODAY’S TOP STORY:    Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer sent out a “Dear Jerry” letter on Saturday, officially withdrawing his bid for Yahoo. In the end, upping the offer to $33/share failed to entice the portal’s leadership, who resisted Microsoft’s advances from the get go. Now the speculation begins regarding how Yahoo and Microsoft will strengthen their positions as they continue to lose search market share to Google. Will Yahoo merge with AOL? Will Microsoft go after Facebook? Let the parlor games begin.  Full edition: CYN DIGITAL. (Or to listen to the Cynopsis Digital Podcast click here or subscribe to it at iTunes here .)

CYNOPSIS KIDS – TODAY’S TOP STORYIron Man muscled into its opening weekend to glean an estimated $101 million domestically in its first weekend, and if you include the Thursday night preview showings that moves up to $104+ million.  The Paramount and Marvel Studios’ the PG-13 movie rang in as the second-biggest superhero movie opening weekend ever for a movie that was not a sequel, behind Spider-Man (May 2002), and the 10th biggest of all time, according to Box Office Mojo.  This was the first Marvel Studios financed movie.  Let’s hope this is a foreshadowing of the summer movie season!  Full edition: CYN KIDS.


As part of an agreement between Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Galaxy Studio, Sony Pictures will become the first major U.S. studio to launch its titles on DVD in Vietnam.  The debut in the market on May 9 will see an initial launch of 15 titles such as Surf’s Up and the Spider-Man film franchise.
