DreamWorks, LLC, DreamWorks SKG, DreamWorks Pictures, or simply

Hollywood studio of which they owned 72%. In December 2005, the founders

20th Century Fox
Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation (Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation,
with hyphen, from 1935 to 1985)—also known as 20th Century Fox, or 20th Century
Fox Pictures, is one of the six major American film studios as of 2011. Located in the
Century City area of Los Angeles, just west of Beverly Hills, the studio used to be a
subsidiary of News Corporation, but now it is currently a subsidiary of 21st Century
Fox. The company was founded on May 31, 1935, as the result of the merger of Fox
Film Corporation, founded by William Fox in 1915, and Twentieth Century Pictures,
founded in 1933 by Darryl F. Zanuck and Joseph M. Schenck. 20th Century Fox has
distributed various commercially successful film series, including Star Wars, Ice Age, XMen, Die Hard, Planet of the Apes, Fantastic Four, Alien and Predator. Television

business segments of The Walt Disney Company. The studio, known for its
multi-faceted film division, which is one of Hollywood's major film studios, is

million during the 2013 fiscal year. The studio entertainment business alone
(live-action and animated motion pictures, direct-to-video content, musical
recordings and live stage plays) brought in $5.83 billion in 2012.
Cinema of the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom has had a significant film industry for over a century. While film
production reached an all-time high in 1936, the 'golden age' of British cinema is
usually thought to have occurred in the 1940s, during which the directors David Lean,
Michael Powell, (with Emeric Pressburger) and Carol Reed produced their most
highly acclaimed work. Many British actors have achieved international fame and
critical success, including Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Kate Winslet. Some of the
films with the largest ever box office returns have been made in the United Kingdom,
including the two highest-grossing film series (Harry Potter and James Bond). The
identity of the British industry, and its relationship with Hollywood, has been the
subject of debate. The history of film production in Britain has often been affected by
attempts to compete with the American industry. The career of the producer
Alexander Korda was marked by this objective, the Rank Organisation attempted to
do so in the 1940s, and Goldcrest in the 1980s. Numerous British-born directors,
including Alfred Hitchcock and Ridley Scott, and performers, such as Charlie Chaplin
and Cary Grant, have achieved success primarily through their work in the United
States.

family's companies (which included large talent agencies and theatre
interests) although the ITA said that ITPC were free to make their own
programmes which they could sell to the new network companies.

  • 14. Cinema of the United Kingdom The United Kingdom has had a significant film industry for over a century. While film production reached an all-time high in 1936, the 'golden age' of British cinema is usually thought to have occurred in the 1940s, during which the directors David Lean, Michael Powell, (with Emeric Pressburger) and Carol Reed produced their most highly acclaimed work. Many British actors have achieved international fame and critical success, including Michael Caine, Sean Connery and Kate Winslet. Some of the films with the largest ever box office returns have been made in the United Kingdom, including the two highest-grossing film series (Harry Potter and James Bond). The identity of the British industry, and its relationship with Hollywood, has been the subject of debate. The history of film production in Britain has often been affected by attempts to compete with the American industry. The career of the producer Alexander Korda was marked by this objective, the Rank Organisation attempted to do so in the 1940s, and Goldcrest in the 1980s. Numerous British-born directors, including Alfred Hitchcock and Ridley Scott, and performers, such as Charlie Chaplin and Cary Grant, have achieved success primarily through their work in the United States.
