They've got a new trailer up (teaser, and two days old. But what the hey.)
And while on the subject of DWA, I had occasion to talk to a former DreamWorks staffer last week. Among other things he mentioned:
"Have you noticed how in the press, it's always kind of the same thing? Pixar makes animated features for everybody, and they're all high quality. DreamWorks Animation makes dumb-downed entertainment for kids, with lots of fart jokes. That's kind of the way the story always goes."
I observed how the media gets hold of a through-line and hangs onto it, whether the evidence supports the story or not ... because it's clean, it's simple, and journalists can be lazy, so why not opt for the time-tested tale? I told him I thought Toy Story 3 was terrific, but How to Train Your Dragon* was more terrific. (* Obviously opinions will differ on this, but that's my outlook. "TS3" won the Academy Award, so I must be wrong.). And I noted how Wall-E was outstanding ... until it shifted to the giant spacecraft and turned into 2001 with fat people.
DWA has two features out this year: Panda Bear in the Spring and Puss in the Fall. Both will do respectable to very good business worldwide. Per DreamWorks' CEO, the company has not produced a money-loser in some time. However, being a stand-alone in the age of the sprawling conglomerate is not an easy task, and it's better than likely that DreamWorks Animation will (Ultimately? Inevitably?) get swallowed up.
* In the next few hours, we'll be revisiting How to Train Your Dragon in a TAG interview.
