I just want to point out that the new premium cable business started by Viacom etc does not and will not include any DreamWorks movies. Those go to HBO in a very long-term arrangement which also follows DreamWorks wherever it ends up. And that includes the Transformers franchise. (See my previous: New Joint Premium TV Channel Venture By Viacom/Paramount/MGM/Lionsgate)
I won’t be posting the rest of today. Back tomorrow. Play nice in the meantime.
