Reinhart is a production company created by Wes Anderson & Eli Roth. The company was forged in late fall 2013 by the intrepid writers/directors as a means of distributing a summer collective of Hollywood Horror Blockbusters which would be released on a large theatrical run among worldwide cinemas, horror films which would serve as a ode to the box office smash slasher film classics of the late 1970's and early 1980's. Anderson and Roth coined the production company's name from a play on the Rialto chain of cinema complexes, striking a deal in early autumn 2014 to premiere said films at their very own set up complex, in Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles, California which would bear the title Reinhart, serving as a ode to the long run out Grindhouse cinema complex chain of the 70's and 80's which would primarily play exploitation flicks, including early B-Grade cult classic slasher films. The company struck financial gold with five feature films boasting the writing & direction of some other up and coming directors wishing to create their lovenote horror/slasher fan pleasing feature films as their films went on to outgross their already Legendary Pictures raised budgets and receive critical appraise among film critics and their target audiences. The Reinhart premieres took place on January 14th, 2015 and went on to secure individual releases. The following films were distributed and made under Reinhart and the following directors:
- Murder On Black Road- Andersons' contribution and the first chronological Reinhart production. Boasted the horror debut of acclaimed young actress Emma Stone and veteran actor James BeLushi. Also featured an ensemble cast of young talent including Jack Reynor, Kaya Scodelario, Logan Lerman, Michael B. Jordan and Teen Wolf lead star and teen heartthrob Tyler Posey, as well as featuring a praised performance from well recognized young actress Ginnifer Goodwin. The film was Andersons' nod to such recent, groundbreaking and genre-bending contemporary slashers as James Wong's Final Destination (2000), Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's The Cabin In The Woods (2012), Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson's Scream (1996), Whedon's Goners (2013) and elder classics such as Craven's A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984) and Fritz Kiersch and George Goldsmith's Children Of The Corn (1984).
- Sole Survivor- Roth's contribution and the second chronological Reinhart production. Originally Roth's Grindhouse trailer segment Thanksgiving was penciled down for a full length, Reinhart distributed adaption as he wished to present a slasher film that payed homage to the 80's classics that dealt with a killer offing people on a set holiday. He changed direction to pay homage to the slasher films dealing with a masked killer offing teenagers until a 'Final Girl' is left to confront and overcome the killer. The film featured a young ensemble cast including Chloe Bennet, Jamie Blackley, Elizabeth Gillies,
