Hey Pilots! We don't like to talk about ourselves - we're much more into you - but we have some awesome news to share!

Moviepilot just announced the sale of, Germany's biggest movie site (and the original MP and sister site to the one you're reading right this second), to French web publisher Webedia for $20 million. $20 million, you guys! Hollywood's buzzing about it, but don't take our word for it. Have a look:

Why is this news so awesome? Because it means more resources and our absolute, 100%, full attention to (again, the one you're reading right now)! It got pretty confusing having to explain to people that .de was our sister site and .com is our own site, but now, we can focus all our time and energy (and, yeah, cash monies) on the site that you guys read and contribute to, every single day. That's right. We're about to get bigger, better, faster, stronger. Step aside, Kanye.

We're already clocking 40 million views and more than 20 million fans across our Facebook channels (not to brag, but we're the biggest multi-channel publisher on Facebook - ya know, kind of a big deal). But we're not stopping there. We've set out to build the absolute biggest and best community of movie fans in the world. And that's exactly what we're gonna do.

None of this would be possible without you. Yes, you. The ones reading this. The ones who read every day. The ones who comment and make our community grow. The ones who Tweet, and Facebook share, and love what we do. The ones who upload your amazing content, fan theories, articles, reviews, and the other cool stuff you find on the internet, every single day. You're the engine that makes Moviepilot go.

This is just the first step. Stick around - we can't wait to see what we build together.

Thanks for being the best fans in the universe.
