In an article called “Studio Scorecard” New line was placed at #9 (tied w/MGM).

The blurb reads:

The ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy is New Lines most ambitious project ever…Trouble Spots…with a reported $130 million plus invested in a director (Peter Jackson) whose biggest film (The Frighteners) has grossed only $17 million.
