Carolco Pictures

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carolco Pictures was an American independent film production, distribution and financing company, established in 1976 by Mario Kassar and Andrew Vajna. It produced the such hits as among others three first films of franchise Rambo (Rambo: First Blood, Rambo: First Blood II and Rambo III) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day.[1][2][3] She suffered huge losses on such spectacular flaps as Showgirls and Cutthroat Island, which led the company to bankruptcy.[4][5][6]
