LOS ANGELES, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- eWorld Companies, Inc. announced today that it has entered into a Strategic Marketing Alliance with MOVIEGUIDE(R), one of the most powerful and influential voices of the Christian Community in regards to film reviews and viewership. Under the terms of the agreement, eWorld will provide MOVIEGUIDE with a customized Private Label Boomerang Media Station(R) and software and license to use the software, which MOVIEGUIDE will use to enhance its communications and broadcast its services to its 11 million+ viewers. MOVIEGUIDE viewers will also have ready access to existing features of eWorld's Boomerang Media Station(R), including exclusive entertainment programming via eWorld's PlayTV(R) online broadcasting network.
This agreement is noteworthy in that it represents the first time that eWorld has issued a private license of its Boomerang Media Station software, which the company has announced that they will continue to make available in the future to select strategic partners. Each private label Boomerang will be customized to the needs of the individual licensee, however all Boomerangs will be linked to eWorld's advertising and marketing programs and each licensee will participate in a revenue-sharing of the advertising and marketing revenues they generate through all Boomerangs downloaded through their efforts. These private label agreements are expected to significantly impact eWorld's bottom line by both increasing the total number of Boomerang downloads, which will increase ad revenues, and by generating a large number of additional product sales and subscriptions.
MOVIEGUIDE was founded in 1985 by Dr. Ted Baehr, past president of the Episcopal Radio & Television Foundation and former director of the Television Center at the . MOVIEGUIDE is affiliated with the Christian Film & Television Commission ministry, also founded by Dr. Baehr, which is a non-profit ministry of Good News Communications, Inc. Both MOVIEGUIDE and CFTVC are dedicated to redeeming the values of the entertainment industry, according to biblical principles. Every four weeks MOVIEGUIDE publishes at least 20 reviews of current movies in a magazine version. Acceptability ratings, which are geared to parents with children but also provide information for discerning adult viewers, are arranged not only according to age levels, but also according to a traditional Christian view of art. MOVIEGUIDE also delivers a two-minute and half-hour TV show and a two-minute and half-hour radio show around the world via broadcast, cablecast and satellite-cast in more than 200 countries and territories. The magazine and Internet versions of MOVIEGUIDE include news from the entertainment industry, insightful articles on trends and beliefs, and interviews with top filmmakers and actors. When MOVIEGUIDE started in 1985, only 6% of the movies were aimed at families; by 2002, 45% of the movies released in theaters were aimed at families. Those family films grossed an average 200% better than movies aimed at the adult marketplace. Also in 1985, 81% of the movies were rated R, but since 2001, less than 45% of the movies released theatrically were R-rated. In 2005, only two of the top 20 grossing movies were R-rated.
