* CreatorKiller: Hollywood was able to survive the box-office and critical disaster that was ''Film/AnAlanSmitheeFilmBurnHollywoodBurn'', but after releasing a string of box-office flops with only a couple of successes in between (like ''Film/TheSixthSense''), the brand was pushed back after ''Film/JustVisiting''. Five years later, Disney decided to give Hollywood another chance, this time as a genre label. The studio had already lost the Creator/DimensionFilms brand to Creator/TheWeinsteinCompany and they needed a replacement. Unfortunately, the revamp proved to be ill-thought up. Hollywood was only able to release three more films before Disney dropped the label for good in 2007. It didn't help that their last release, ''Film/TheInvisible'', [[BoxOfficeBomb crashed and burned at the box office]] [[EpicFail pretty badly]] (only gaining $7,717,309 out of an estimated $30,000,000 on its opening weekend).

Hollywood Pictures was originally founded by Disney's then-Chairman and CEO Michael Eisner in 1989 to create internal competition with the output from the Touchstone division. It began its life in 1990 with a number of films ranging from major flops to modest hits at the box office. Hollywood Pictures met its two breakout hits in 1992: ''Film/TheHandThatRocksTheCradle'', a psychological thriller, and ''Film/EncinoMan'', which began a relationship with comedian Creator/PaulyShore that continued for much of the early-to-mid-1990s. 1993 was marked by a major hit (the western ''Film/{{Tombstone}}''), a major flop (the film version of the long-running ''Film/SuperMarioBros'' franchise), and a critically acclaimed film (''Literature/TheJoyLuckClub''). However, none of this particular trio did much to outweigh the division's anemic box office record. In 1994, Ricardo Mestres, the first president of Hollywood Pictures, was booted out and replaced by Michael Lynton. His era was marked by an association with Creator/PolyGramFilmedEntertainment that would pay off handsomely with the release of ''Film/MrHollandsOpus'', and the era also yielded seven of the division's most critically and/or commercially successful films (''Film/QuizShow'', ''Film/DangerousMinds'', ''Film/CrimsonTide'', ''Film/WhileYouWereSleeping'', ''Film/JudgeDredd'', ''Film/TheRock'' and ''Music/{{Evita}}'') along with a decidedly more controversial film called ''Film/{{Powder}}''.[[note]]Unbeknownst to the company, its director, Victor Salva, was a convicted child molester; the victim of his case, Nathan Forrest Winters, ended up leading a boycott of the film, and Salva was never rehired by Disney.[[/note]] In 1997, Lynton left Disney to work at the Penguin Group, a move that could not have come at a worse time, as, at the box office, Hollywood Pictures only scored one clear hit (''Film/GrossePointeBlank'') for that entire calendar year. This led Disney to reduce its release schedule to just three films a year, most of them utter failures. Not even the mammoth success of ''Film/TheSixthSense''[[note]]the breakout film of Creator/MNightShyamalan and the second-highest grossing film of 1999[[/note]] was enough to convince Disney to give Hollywood Pictures a second chance. On April 6, 2001, Hollywood Pictures released its fiftieth film, ''Film/JustVisiting'', then was quietly folded back into the main Disney company.
