Dreamworks Stock Plumets After Job Cuts And Limited Line-Up Announcement


Jeffrey Katzenberg

Despite Dreamworks Animation’s big releases from 2014 – such as How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Penguins of Madagascar – the studio isn’t doing all that well financially. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the studio’s stock is plunging, after the announcement of layoffs and a smaller list of releases for 2015.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 Still
With the newly announced cuts, films like How to Train Your Dragon 3 hang in the balance.

The move comes after a string of costly box-office flops for the studio in recent years. This summer’s How to Train Your Dragon 2 earned $40 million less than the original at US box offices ($177 compared to $217) on a $145 million budget.

Bryan Cranston Jeffrey Katzenberg

Luckily, for true fans of Breaking Bad, Vince Gilligan and his trusty team shored up the plot without any real room for interpretation in the finale of Breaking Bad. But if things has gone Jeffrey Katzenberg’s way, we’d be looking at three more episodes of the AMC meth drama.

Breaking Bad castNever thought we'd say this, but that's enough, thanks

The CEO of DreamWorks Animation, announced during his keynote speech at the Mipcom Mart in Cannes that he offered a whopping $75 million for three more episodes. "The last series cost about $3.5 million an episode, so they would make more profit from these three shows than they made from five years of the entire series," stated Katzenberg, according to The Daily Mail.

Tom Hanks And Will Smith Team Up At Governor's Awards 2012


Tom Hanks Will Smith Jeffrey Katzenberg Quentin Tarantino Hal Needham

It's been a relatively quiet year for both Tom Hanks and Will Smith, though both teamed up for the Governor's Awards 2012 on Saturday evening (December 1, 2012). Producers of the show had enlisted the Hollywood giants to present DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg with the first Oscar of awards' season.

Katzenberg received an honorary award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science for his humanitarian work. Smith introduced the revered producer, while Hanks gave fitting speech about the CEO's generosity and his fundraising efforts after the 9/11 attacks. "Jeffrey Katzenberg doesn't have to do any of these things. But Jeffrey Katzenberg cannot help but to do all of these things - it is in his DNA. Jeffrey Katzenberg is a brilliant man, a hardworking man, a visionary and one of the most powerful men (in Hollywood)." Joking about his time spent with Katzenberg, Hanks added, "It's not just the invitation to breakfast. It's the lunch that lasts exactly 47 minutes. It's the follow-up phone call. It's the tour of the facility. It's the follow-up phone call. It's the letter to remind you of the phone call and the tour of the facility. And finally, it's the contribution you make."

Elsewhere at the ceremony, Quentin Tarantino gave a speech for stuntman Hal Needham, who revolutionized the stunt business by appearing in 310 feature films. "He is the man," said the Django Unchained director, "Before he became a director, he pushed the boundaries of what could be done.I have ripped off many shots from you. Today, I say thank you very much."

Spirit: Stallion Of The Cimarron Review


Weak
Man, are we mean to horses. At least, that's what I got out of DreamWorks' Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, an old west campfire tale told from the perspective of a wild horse that paints an unflattering portrait of American pioneers, using traditional animated techniques.

The horse in question we come to know as Spirit, leader of the cimarron herd and a victim of his own curiosity. An unnecessary trip down to a cowboy campground earns Spirit a pair of lassos around his neck for his troubles, and the rough riders turn the reluctant buck over to the Army for labor.

Shrek 2 Review


Very Good
When Prince Charming (Rupert Everett) pulls off his helmet to reveal a hairnet in the first minute of Shrek 2, it's clear the sequel intends to match the wit and style of its predecessor. Fortunately it succeeds, finding new targets for its fairy-tale bashing humor. The result is the kind of summer escapism you don't need to lower your expectations to enjoy.

The sequel begins where part one left off. Ogre Shrek (Mike Myers) and his now equally ogre-rific wife Fiona (Cameron Diaz) embark on a hilarious honeymoon montage, complete with mermaid-tossing. They return to find Donkey (Eddie Murphy) still fulfilling his role as "annoying talking animal." Before they can kick him out, however, they receive an invitation from Fiona's parents, King Harold (John Cleese) and Queen Lillian (Julie Andrews), who want to meet their daughter's new husband. Unfortunately, they didn't see the first film, and have no idea that their daughter is now permanently of the green persuasion, as is their new son-in-law.
