Hollywood PicturesHollywood Pictures is an inactive American film production label of The Walt Disney Studios, a division of The Walt Disney Company. Similar to Disney's Touchstone Pictures and former Miramax and Dimension film labels, it produced films for a more mature adult audience with darker themes than Walt Disney Pictures, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar, Disneynature and Miramax Family. The label's metonym was the Sphinx.
While then-Disney chief Michael Eisner at first intended Hollywood Pictures to be a full-fledged studio, like Touchstone, in later years its operations had been scaled back and its management was merged with the flagship Walt Disney Pictures studio.
The division is known for having brought the works of M. Night Shyamalan to theaters; its most profitable film was Shyamalan's breakout hit ''The Sixth Sense'', which grossed over $600 million worldwide upon its 1999 release. Provided by Wikipedia
