Online movie ticket seller Fandango is purchasing the film review websites Rotten Tomatoes and Flixster from Warner Bros. Entertainment, the Los Angeles Times reports.
Warner Bros. will take a minority stake in Fandango as part of the arrangement, the report notes, citing an announcement from the companies. Financial terms were not revealed.
“Fandango, a unit of Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, has been trying to grow its ticket-selling business by acquiring other firms,” the Times notes. “Last month, the Los Angeles-based company said it is acquiring M-Go, a site that lets users purchase and rent digital movies and TV shows online, in a move to bolster its perks for ticket buyers.”
