Warner Bros. Chief Puts Past Behind Him; Focuses On Future

After seeing five films in a row misfire at the box office, Warner Bros. Pictures President Jeff Robinov has expressed confidence in the remainder of the studio's 2013 slate. I look at what we do as a sports season, he told the Los Angeles Times. What matters is where you are at the end of the season and if you are in the playoffs and win the championship. Continuing the analogy, he remarked, This isn't our fastest start, but as I look to the last three-fourths of the year it looks incredibly strong. Some industry observers may disagree, the Times indicated, particularly when it comes to the Jackie Robinson biopic 42 and the effects-loaded The Great Gatsby from controversial director Baz Luhrmann. However, other experts indicate that Warner Bros. is experiencing what almost every other studio is, an overall downtrend in ticket sales or what veteran box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian described to the Times as a malaise in the marketplace.
