This summer will see a crowded slate of animated movies with DreamWorks (DWA +0.8%) Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, Pixar's (DIS -0.1%) Brave, and Fox's (NWSA +0.9%) Ice Age: Continental Drift all debuting within five weeks of each other. Each film boasts strategic box office advantages, but analysts find it unlikely that all three will be smash hits as they can't help but cut into each other's target demographic.
