Legend Pictures, LLC, also known as Legendary Pictures and Legendary Entertainment, is an American film production company based in Burbank, California. It is the studio which produces the MonsterVerse.
History[edit | edit source]
Legendary Pictures, Inc. was founded and incorporated by Thomas Tull in California in 2000 after he raised $500 million from private equity firms. In 2005 it signed an agreement with Warner Bros. to co-produce and co-finance up to 40 films over seven years.
In July 2013, Legendary reached an agreement with Universal Studios where it would market, co-finance, and distribute Legendary's films for five years starting in 2014, the year that Legendary's similar agreement with Warner Bros. expired. Despite this, Legendary continues to collaborate with Warner Bros. on its MonsterVerse franchise of films, which include Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and Godzilla vs. Kong.
