Warner Bros. to buy Flixster, Rotten Tomatoes movie review site

ASSOCIATED RPESS

LOS ANGELES — Warner Bros. says it will buy Flixster, a movie-discovery service on millions of smartphones, and the movie-review site Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie studio of Time Warner Inc. said Wednesday that Flixster will operate independently. Rotten Tomatoes is a subsidiary of Flixster.

Warner Bros. also said it plans to use Flixster to help launch a service that will allow people to access digital copies of home movies they have purchased, regardless of which studio made them.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
