It looks as if it's going to be a big year for DreamWorks Animation.
In 2010, DWA will become the first studio to release three CGI animated films in one year. That's a potential game-changer as the studio will have five films hitting screens every two years instead of the three or four so far. It could represent a step removed from DWA's traditional up-and-down in terms of release activity, which has meant a rocky road for the stock during dry spells.This year's three movies compare to the weaker-than-expected "Monsters vs. Aliens," DWA's sole release of 2009. Plus, Morris said he has screened parts of 2010 pics "How to Train Your Dragon" (release date March 26) and "Shrek Forever After" (May 21) and thinks "both look like winners." A glimpse at the third film, "Megamind" (Nov. 5), during a New York presentation last week earned positive reviews from reporters and advertisers, though analysts expect a weaker performance from that pic.
