Features : Warner Bros. The best!

Hey guys~! Today I'm just gonna go ~GaGa~ over WB (my shortcut) aka Warner Bros. Entertainment, Inc., also known as Warner Bros. Pictures or in short, Warner Bros. which is an American producer of film and television entertainment (Ps. the often-used Warner Brothers is incorrect). Besides this, my all-time-favorite are the Yakko, Wakko and Dot Warner aka "The Warner Brothers (and the Warner Sister)" or just simply "The Warners". Who are they? The trio of red-nosed Warner siblings all appear in the Animaniacs logo, and the show usually begins and ends with gags performed by them.

It's on of my favorite cartoon purposely drawn in the style of early black and white visuals. The Warner siblings were part of a crazy and hilarious cast and often made appearances in other characters' segments, often as a literal running gag. (Animaniacs, featuring Yakko, Wakko and Dot plus Pinky and the Brain)

Guess what... Warner Bros. one of the "major" film studios, it is a subsidiary of Time Warner and Warner Bros. also has several subsidiary companies, including Warner Bros. Studios, Warner Bros. Pictures, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Home Video, New Line Cinema, TheWB.com, and DC Comics. Warner owns half of The CW Television Network.

Here's how it all began : (Just a short recap over the years...)

1903 - 1925 : Founding
1925 - 1935 : Sound, Color, Style
1930 : The birth of Warner's cartoons
1931 - 1935 : Pre-code realistic period & code era
1936 onwards : World War II
After World War II : Changing Hands
1949 : Warner Bros. Television
1958 : Warner Bros. Records
 In the late 1950s : Warner Bros. rebounded with new owners

Since 1995 : Warner and station owner Tribune Company of Chicago launched The WB Network, finding a niche market in teenagers.

In the late 1990s, Warner obtained rights to the Harry Potter novels, and released feature film adaptations of the first in 2001, the second in 2002, the third in June 2004, the fourth in November 2005, and the fifth on July 11, 2007. The sixth was slated for November 2008, but Warner moved it to July 2009 only three months before the movie was supposed to come out, citing the lack of summer blockbusters in 2009 (due to the Writer's Strike) as the reason. The decision was purely financial, and Alan Horn said, "There were no delays. I’ve seen the movie. It is fabulous. We would have been perfectly able to have it out in November." This resulted in a massive fan backlash. The seventh and final adaptation, to be shown in two parts, has been announced for 2010 and 2011.
"Warner Bros. celebrated its 90th anniversary on June 1, 2008 even though the company celebrated for its 85th anniversary for films only."

In 2009, Warner Bros. became the first studio in history to gross more than $2 billion domestically in a single year.

It is responsible for the Harry Potter film series, the highest grossing film series of all time. Warner Brothers is also responsible for The Dark Knight, the 2008 Academy Award-winning Batman film that eventually became the studio's highest grossing film ever with over $1 billion. Warner Bros. films were the top-grossing films worldwide for 2001('Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone"), 2005 ("Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire") and 2008 (The Dark Knight).

Here's our favorite Harry Potter Movie posters some from Warner Bros. (I guess..hehhe)

To cut to the chase, Warner Bros. Entertainment is a fully integrated, broad-based entertainment company. A global leader in the creation, production, distribution, licensing and marketing of all forms of creative content and their related businesses, across all current and emerging media and platforms.  The company stands at every aspect of the entertainment industry from feature film, TV and home entertainment production and worldwide distribution to DVD, digital distribution, animation, comic books, licensing, international cinemas and broadcastin. Now this is definitely something to feature and brag about!
(Ps. I have another favorite "HOT FLICK" at the moment, The Vampire Diaries from The CW TV Network that half belongs to Warner Bros. btw...)
