Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group is a division of Sony Pictures Entertainment. [1] The group has also been called Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) Worldwide Acquisitions Group in sometimes. The group specialises in acquiring and producing films for a wide variety of distribution platforms[2], but the group's main focus is non-theatrical markets. (Some film sellers even called the groups as one of super-ancillaries.)[3]

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group was formerly a division of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment; in 2007, the group became a stand-alone division of Sony Pictures Entertainment.[4]

Most films of Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group would go straight-to-video, but the group would also release few of its films theatrically[5]; Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group would analyze how much a theatrical release will impact a film's TV and video revenue and then determine whether the film should bows theatrically.[6] In the case of theatrical releases, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group will offer the films to Sony's distribution labels (ie. TriStar Pictures, Screen Gems, Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Classics, etc) firstly; if Sony's distribution labels passed on the films, Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group will release the films through other distributors (ie. Samuel Goldwyn Films, Apparition, etc).[7][8]

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group also manages two labels: Destination Films and Stage 6 Films.
