Dragons 2 not good enough for DreamWorks Animation

  • A weekend box office take on How To Train Your Dragon 2 which fell below expectations prompts some frenzied selling in DreamWorks Animation (DWA -12.2%).
  • Though the $50M box was relatively strong and beat the haul from Dragons 1, expectations were running high that the studio would shake off its slump with Dragons 2 in a resounding way.
  • During the weekend, Dragons 2 was beat out by 22 Jump Street.

    "Dragon" easily won the weekend and is doing great for DreamWorks. Oh, and Hollywood's biggest box office star remains: Tom Cruise.


    How can I say these outlandish things? Hint: foreign box office.

    Seems like a big drop for pretty decent news actually. I dont follow this sector or DWA much, not sure if this is a buy on the dip, but it might be a bargain.
