New Line Cinema

Founded: 1967

Building on over 50 years of innovation and creativity, New Line Cinema continues its long and successful history of producing critically acclaimed hit films that resonate with both mainstream and niche audiences around the world. 

New Line became a unit of Warner Bros. Entertainment in March 2008. The company maintains separate development, production and business affairs operations, but coordinates those functions with Warner Bros. to maximize film performance and operating efficiencies. New Line produced the Oscar Award-winning The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, which generated a combined worldwide box office of almost $3 billion (and an additional $3 billion in consumer products and home entertainment revenue). This was followed by a trilogy of films based on The Hobbit, which also generated close to $3 billion in global receipts. 

The studio is credited with revitalizing the genre of the R-rated comedy with the success of Wedding Crashers in 2005, and has a history of producing groundbreaking comedies such as the Austin Powers titles, the Rush Hour series, Dumb and Dumber, The Wedding Singer, Friday, Horrible Bosses and We’re the Millers. A pioneer in the horror genre, New Line is widely known for the iconic A Nightmare on Elm StreetFinal Destination and Blade franchises. In 2013, New Line released the global blockbuster The Conjuring which launched a horror universe that includes the hit Annabelle, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle: Creation and the upcoming The Nun. The first four films have earned over $1 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing horror franchise of all time. New Line recently released the record-breaking IT, based on the classic Stephen King horror novel, and Golden Globe-winner The Disaster Artist.

New Line’s long list of popular films includes: The Mask; Seven; The Notebook; Elf; Hairspray; Sex and the City and Sex and the City 2; Journey to the Center of the Earth and Journey 2: The Mysterious Island; He’s Just Not That Into You; San Andreas; Creed; Me Before You and Central Intelligence.
