New Line's 2004-2008 filmography was practically a non-stop litany of box-office disappointments. With the exception of ''Film/TheButterflyEffect'', ''Film/WeddingCrashers'', and ''Film/{{Hairspray}}'', New Line couldn't turn a profit post-''[[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Return of the King]]''. Once ''Film/TheGoldenCompass'' tanked in the U.S., it was decided that they would merge with Creator/WarnerBros, which became official in 2008. New Line lingers on as [[DisneyOwnsThisTrope a subsidiary of WB's feature film division]].
