Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group has just acquired Flixster, the social movie app company, as well as Rotten Tomatoes, the film review and news site that Flixster bought from News Corp. last year. Both Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes will remain autonomous.
Under the terms of the deal, Flixster “will continue to operate independently and will expand its services beyond movie discovery to enable digital content ownership and delivery across any connected digital device,” Warner Bros. said in a statement.
