Hollywood Studios’ Only Chance For Long-Term Survival

GO PRIVATE. There will never – ever – be enough growth and margin improvement to satisfy Wall Street. Maybe short-term the studios will get a bump by telling investors they are¬†going to make 100 comic book movies over the next 5 years – but after…

The Twilight Of The Katzenberg

It’s going to be a long summer for Jeffrey Katzenberg and DreamWorks Animation. It may just be the last summer those two names are associated with each other. Sure, they’ve got “How To Train Your Dragon 2” coming out. And, sure, it’ll do $500 million…

The Death Of The Tentpole Film

Hollywood doesn’t need to panic yet – but the powers that be should seriously start thinking about changing film slate strategies. This is great news for filmmakers, terrible news for Hollywood’s bottom line. Tentpole movies, when they work, print money for years and years and…
