Formed in 1979 by brothers and former co-chairmen Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Miramax is known for producing and distributing Oscar-nominated movies including "The Hours" and "Frida." Although the company originally distributed and produced lower budget, quirky art house films, Miramax briefly strayed into bigger, more costly movies such as "Chicago" and Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York. Walt Disney Studios bought Miramax in 1993 for about $75 million. The Weinsteins opted out of their contract and left Miramax in late 2005. The brothers took Miramax's genre unit, Dimension Films (producer of the "Scream" and "Scary Movie" series), with them to their new company.
