has significant stakes in ... online games maker GungHo Online Entertainment. The talks were first reported by the Hollywood Reporter, which quoted an unidentified source as saying a buyout would value DreamWorks at $3.4 billion.


jRO will own Dreamworks

Why DreamWorks and not MadHouse? Planning to add Kung Fu Panda and How to Train Your Dragon into RO?

because dreamworks is in a slump recently because the last few movies have been pretty bad flops, but the staff/process/equipment is all still pretty good, making their stock a little devalued relative to the actual worth of the company, if i had to guess

i don't really know who madhouse is though

The only bit I got is that SoftBank has some shares in GungHo. But definitely not jRO purchasing Dreamworks >.>

Their last three movies have grossed over a billion dollars worldwide, in what possible context is that considered a series of bad flops?

Rise of the Guardians, Turbo, and Mr. Peabody and Sherman were all considered flops as far as their stock value goes. Even though they all made money, they didn't make ENOUGH money. I think they did alright financially with The Croods but it was critically panned. Last strong performing movie was Madagascar 3 like 2 years ago.

Even though they've all made money, they've almost all been write downs for the company.

Dunno how accurate wikipedia is but here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DreamWorks_Animation#Feature_films.

They've all been making money. It's just that, when you compare Dreamworks to Disney and Pixar, Dreamworks is not doing as well.
