Overall revenues rose 7% to just short of $1B, paced by 30%-plus growth at the film studio.
And that was driven largely by the global success of mystery film Knives Out, which has grossed $156.4M domestically since a late-November release, along with a worldwide total nearing $300M.
Expenses rose by 23%, though, and the company swung to an operating loss of $39.5M from a year-ago gain of $86.8M.

Global subscribers from Starz, STARZPLAY Arabia and PANTAYA hit 28.5M; global OTT subscribers reached 8.6M.
