Waving Good-Bye to New Line Cinema

Posted by goldwriting on February 28, 2008


Don’t mind him. I’ve got a pirate copy of Harold and Kumar go to Space right here. It’s not even in theaters yet. Now you want some?

Well, another independent studio falls into the gaping maw of the major studios. New Line will officially fold into Warner Brothers and they will compliment their release plates to form a more cohesive schedule. Supposedly the New Line brand will stay on an they will continue to release films that fit the genres they worked in, in essence becoming an indie arm for WB. I can only hope that they will let the studio do what it does best, which is make some really kick ass films, such as: The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Evil Dead, Critters, most of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pump Up the Volume, My Own Private Idaho, Glengarry Glen Ross, A Few Good Men, Menace II Society, Malice, The Mask, SeVen, Dark City, the Blade trilogy, American History X, Magnolia, the Final Destination trilogy (with another coming in super bloody 3-D), The Cell, Hedwig and the Angry inch, most of the Friday the 13th franchise (including the absolutely hilarious Jason X), Wedding Crashers and Domino. Those are honestly on a sampling of the enjoyment that New Line has brought in their forty years of service to the movie going audience.

So clink your glasses, raise a toast and swallow some popcorn in tribute to a visionary company and let’s all hope their name isn’t tarnished by big wigs and committee filmmaking.
