Why Time Warner (TWX) Stock Is Down Today

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Time Warner (TWX) was falling -0.4% to $68.84 Wednesday on reports that Amazon.com (AMZN) is not taking pre-orders for any Warner Bros. movies and criticism over the studio's strategy.

According to The New York Times, Amazon is no longer accepting pre-orders for the DVD and Blu-ray versions of The LEGO Movie and other Warner Bros. movies due to a dispute with the company. Unlike the recent dispute with Hachette, Amazon is not delaying shipments of DVDs and Blu-rays once the movies are available.

Separately, Warner Bros. is facing criticism for its strategy to focus on big box office hits over profitable movies in the $100 million to $200 million range. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio may have to wait until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016 to reach to top of the box office again.
