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 by professionals with 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.

COLOSSAL

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.

MANDY

One of the most anticipated films of Sundance 2018
— /Film, Nerdist, Filmstage, First Showing

One of the most anticipated 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.

PITCH ELEVATOR

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.

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 and 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 early 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.

ICONS: FACE TO FACE

With ICONS, Legion M Is Creating Pop-Culture Time Capsules And Pushing VR’s Limits.
— Susan Karlin, Fast Company

ICONS: Face to Face is a first-of-its-kind virtual reality interview series that allows fans to stand face to face with the luminaries, titans and leaders of our time. Captured using breathtakingly high fidelity VR recording technology, these "virtual time capsules" allow fans to get as close as technologically possible to being in IN THE ROOM with the people who shape our world.

ICONS: Face to Face is a Legion M original project. In 2017, we filmed a pilot episode featuring actor/director/comedian Kevin Smith and comic book icon Stan Lee.  Created, produced, and financed entirely by Legion M, we're currently seeking partners to develop the rest of the series.
