Warner Bros boosts Machinima stake

19 February 2015 12:00 PM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Warner Bros has led a $24m round of financing in the online gaming and content titan.

The other investors in the round were existing stakeholders Redpoint Ventures, Mk Capital, Coffin Capital and Machinima co-founder Allen DeBevoise.

Warner Bros led an $18m funding round in March 2014 and continues to shy away from purchasing a YouTube network outright, as other Hollywood studios have done.

Machinima reportedly reaches 170m unique viewers and operates a YouTube channel that commands more than 430m subscribers.

CEO Kevin Tsujihara told attendees at the Code/Media conference in California on Thursday (February 19) that he and his team had still not found a model to make money from owning a network.

What appears to be in little doubt is the value Warner Bros top brass place on Machinima as a content delivery platform.

The companies partnered on the live-action web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy (pictured) and are preparing to release the animated series Justice League: Gods And »

'Dead Rising' Poster: Jesse Metcalfe Fights a Zombie Army

13 February 2015 1:41 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than one month after the first trailer debuted for the upcoming digital feature Dead Rising: Watchtower, Crackle has now unveiled the poster, featuring star Jesse Metcalfe wielding what is described as a "sledge saw," a combination of a sledge hammer and a chainsaw. Once Upon a Time star Meghan Ory is also seen in the poster, brandishing another dual weapon, which is both a samurai sword and a shovel.

Dead Rising: Watchtower takes place during a large-scale zombie outbreak. When a mandatory government vaccine fails to stop the infection from spreading, the four leads must evade infection while also pursuing the root of the epidemic, with all signs pointing to a government conspiracy. Politics, public paranoia, and media coverage play an important role in the story's narrative. The cast also includes Virginia Madsen (Sideways), Dennis Haysbert (Men, Women & Children), and Rob Riggle (Let's Be Cops, 21 Jump Street).
