Fandango buys Rotten Tomatoes and Flixter

Fandango is set to acquire Flixster and Rotten Tomatoes, which includes the professional movie critic rating tool the Tomatometer, from Warner Bros. Entertainment. The move solidifies the advance movie ticket vendor and movie news site as premier digital network for all things movies, providing consumers with showtimes, ticketing, reviews and movie/TV news. This is the perfect marriage of brands that complement one annother other with their services. At this point, no cuts in staff are expected...

Does this mean that Warner's going to stop pushing Flixster down our throats, or that Fandango is now part of the Warner parent company?

"Fandango is set to acquire..." kind of gives it away...
