sized for/especially designed for/especially for/packaged for/adapted for/created for etc


Explanation:
This even more so as/because XXX (has) bought/obtained/acquired a majority share/stake in Primus Entertainment, located/situated in London and Los Angeles, which produces feature films sized for/especially designed for/especially for/packaged for/adapted for/created for/especially prepared for the cinema/movie theater and TV/television markets.

With this sort of translation, it is often helpful to have a look at the Internet sites of the companies involved to see what they write about themselves in English.

ready-to-show, builded-up for, created for, elaborated


Explanation:
The sense fo the phrase is as follows:

... which produces for the itnernational tele- and cinema- market _r_e_a_d_y_-_t_o_-_s_h_o_w_ (fiction) films (pictures/ movies).

Here konfektioniert means something "ready to" (e.g., dress, eat, use, apply, etc.). Here they mean fiction films.

On different use of the word, see links below
