Three years after being bought by Complex, Collider is going independent again. The website, which reports on the entertainment industry with a mix of breaking news, original features, and extensive interviews, began in July 2005 as an independent venture spearheaded by Editor-in-Chief Steve Weintraub. After three years under the ownership of Complex Networks, where the website reached new heights and Collider’s YouTube channel grew an immense fandom through original programming and shows, Complex wanted to focus on its own brand and Marc Fernandez, GM of Collider, wanted to focus on the Collider brand and ensure it was expanding the right way. So he and a silent partner have now taken full independent ownership of the site, buying it from Complex.
Now operating as an independent entity, Collider will continue to expand and evolve its content, revamping all of its video programming, listening to fans and longtime readers to make improvements, try out new approaches, and more. To reach these goals, Collider hopes to expand its staff significantly and is currently hiring in a variety of positions.
Steve Weintraub continues as Editor-in-Chief of Collider.com, and the website will continue to publish deep analysis and sharp commentary on the biggest movie and television news of the day. Beloved shows like Movie Talk, Jedi Council, Heroes, and of course Movie Trivia Schmoedown will remain stalwarts of Collider’s YouTube channel, but look for new and exciting things to come.
