LEGION M'S SLATE OF PROJECTS

Legion M partners with creators - from independent filmmakers to big Hollywood studios - to produce movies, TV shows, VR experiences and more.  We provide development support, financial backing, marketing muscle and, most importantly, fan engagement and monetization.

When you invest in Legion M you aren't buying into a single project -- you're investing in a diversified slate chosen with input from our shareholders and guidance from an extensive network of advisors and allies. Entertainment is a hit driven business, and Hollywood is notorious for complicated accounting schemes that favor insiders at the expense of starry-eyed investors. Investing in a single project is a great way support something you love and believe in, but if you're looking to make money over the long haul, it's important to diversify.

Legion M provides a curated slate of projects chosen by people who understand how Hollywood works. We diversify across different genres (i.e. horror vs. sci-fi), mediums (i.e. TV vs. movies), and stages (i.e. high risk/reward early stage investments vs. safer late stage investments) to build a company that will stand the test of time.

MANDY

Status: Released September 14, 2018

The film that could be Nicolas Cage’s craziest movie ever is currently the best-reviewed movie at Sundance
— Rotten Tomatoes

One of the best reviewed films of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, Panos Cosmatos' Mandy (Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough, Linus Roache, Bill Duke) is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who murdered the love of his life.

Legion M partnered with SpectreVision, Umedia, and XYZ Films to produce both the film and the score by two time Academy Award nominee Jóhann Jóhannsson. The movie is expected to release in 2018.

COLOSSAL

Status: Released April 27, 2017

Colossal is one of those movies with the amount of creativity that some directors never produce in their whole lives.
— Nick Allen (RogerEbert.com)

Colossal is the sort of movie Legion M stands for - and the type most difficult to make in today's Hollywood. In a landscape dominated by sequels and reboots, Colossal stands tall as a shining example of original storytelling. Whether you like the movie or not (and strong Rotten Tomatoes scores suggest you will), you have to applaud writer/director Nacho Vigalondo for his boldly imaginative vision, and actors Anne Hathaway, Jason Sudeikis, Dan Stevens, Tim Blake Nelson and Austin Stowell for taking a chance on an entirely different type of monster movie. 

Legion M partnered with NEON to bring Colossal to theaters, and supported it with a grass-roots marketing campaign that included opening night meet-ups around the country.

PITCH ELEVATOR

Status: In Development, Seeking Distribution

Anyone can have a great idea for a Film, TV, or VR project. Very few have the connections to get those ideas made.

We're here to change that.

Pitch Elevator began when Legion M built a full size elevator set on the floor of Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con.  Inside was a cameraman and a countdown timer. Fans from around the world were invited to step inside, pitch their idea for a movie or TV show, and compete to win a development deal with Legion M. We ended with over 400 pitches representing over 10 hours of footage. 

Over months of voting, the Legion M community has rated and evaluated these pitches, casting tens of thousands of votes to narrow the field to the top 33 semifinalists. The Pitch Elevator show chronicles the journey of these semifinalists as they pitch to industry insiders like Leonard Maltin, Bill Duke and Dave Thomas to compete for the opportunity to win a development deal with Legion M. 

Pitch Elevator is currently in production as a digital series scheduled to release in 2018. A Legion M original, the show was created and financed by Legion M, and made possible with extensive support from the Legion M community.
