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…

Stuck Between Old and New Media

Hollywood is stuck. New York is stuck. Silicon Valley is stuck. No one can really do anything too exciting because old media is still hanging around – refusing to give up the crown. Don’t get me wrong – OLD MEDIA IS DYING – but they’re…
