    Razor thin profit margin, 150 mil revenue is incredulous

    My estimate of Q3 revenue was somewhere between 115-130 mil. Box office from Turbo was said to be the second poorest film in the history of DWA, how in the world did they come up with the numbers they did? Via "International box office" that can not be proven. These guys just took out $200 mil loans, now they have some cash to do some wiggling and lying.

    The truth is that they probably had a loss but did some lying and manipulation of numbers to show this razor thin profit of 10 mil. This is as dirty as it can get.

    So the annual estimate of $744 still is far far far away: Q1 120 mil, Q2, 213 mil, Q3 154 mil combined= $487 mil. They need Q4 to have renenue of $257 mil to meet their yearly guidance. Good luck on that without any new movie for Q4.
