“Our motivation is to improve our return on capital,” Bewkes said. “Doing that we believe we can move profit up.”

To accomplish this, the CEO said the studio will focus on building wider consumer adoption of Blu-ray, expanding cable video-on-demand simultaneously with standard DVD (Bewkes said cable VOD generated more than three times the margins of DVD rental) and other electronic distribution.

I wonder how this will work out for them? With credit the way it is, for risky prospects like movies, I gather they have little choice.

Its not the first time Ive seen someone say the studios are getting ready to cut back on what goes to the movies.

Lets face it, they've been putting out some crap lately, so its not all the economies fault.
