Don't Bet Aginst DreamWorks Animation
... If we look at the top 20 CG animated films ranked by domestic gross revenue, we see that DreamWorks makes up almost half that list.
The main problem that I have is with the company's limited release schedule, a box-office flop could significantly impair annual earnings and cash flows. ...
DWA has created some of the most commercial animated features in the business. One blockbuster after another ... with the occasional non-blockbuster.
The company has always kept me on the edge of my seat because it has long performed a circus high-wire act: Employing a lot of people, and doing it with lots of high-grossing features.
But a couple of misses, and DreamWorks is hanging from that high wire by its pinky. Sweaty palms time, wouldn't you say?
