Feb 19, 2016  •  Post A Comment

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.”

  1. Fandango needs to partner with Regal and AMC so users get their reward points. That is what will get regular movie goers to buy through them.
