No solid singles from Warner Bros.

Execs at Warner Bros. (TWX) face some criticism for the studio's swing-for-the-fences strategy which has stumbled as of late.

Hollywood insiders say Warner Bros. penchant for only aiming for monster box office hits has left it vulnerable in the post-Harry Potter era. Profitable hits in the $100M-$200M domestic box range are lacking.

What to watch: Though the Lego franchise hold some promise for Warner Bros., it might have to wait until the Batman vs. Superman movie in 2016 before topping the charts again.

    They don't have a true Batman film coming out. Man of Steel was highly disappointing, from just about every view imaginable. Transcendence bombed and Edge of Tomorrow doesn't look to be raking in the bucks. Time to scour more teen fiction and pad those into useless trilogies.

    Dear Warner Bro. Hire an accountant. 10 movies at $10 million a piece equals 100 millions dollars. 5 movies at 100 million a piece equals 500 million dollars. Cheaper movies equals more profit. Ie Blackploitation films starring Kevin Hart in january ie MLK weekend, a couple of horror movies during october and march for the teenagers, Dramas for the award season, R rated comedies during the summer. That's 5 movies which typically don't have ballooning budgets of $200 million dollars a movie.
