BIG NEWS! FML Being Acquired By National CineMedia (NCM)

We are very proud and excited to announce today that Fantasy Movie League has entered into an agreement to be acquired by National CineMedia (NASDAQ: NCMI)! Some of you may recognize the National CineMedia (NCM) name, but for those who aren't familiar with it, NCM is the largest cinema advertising network in the U.S., reaching more than 750 million moviegoers annually. As movie fans, you'll definitely be familiar with NCM's well-known FirstLook pre-show featuring entertainment content and ads in theaters.

So, what does this mean for the future of FML? In the short term, things will mostly stay the same through the upcoming Summer Season . . . but we're going to immediately start working on making improvements to the game and introduce new features starting this Fall. The things we're working on include many of the items that we've been talking about, and that you've been asking for a while, as well as other special items in the works that we can't announce yet.

We are very excited to be joining NCM and growing our community. From everybody on Team FML, a big thank you to all FMLers for being a part of this ride and heading into a very bright future with us. We know it's you who brought us here.
