An American film production company founded in 2004, Legendary Pictures is a producer of several Warner Bros. films following a 40-picture deal made by the two studios in 2005. As that deal started to die down, Legendary entered a five-year deal with Universal, starting in 2014. In 2016, Legendary was purchased by the China-based Dalian Wanda Group. In 2018, as a result of a number of box office failures during their partnership with Universal, Legendary opted to return to Warner Bros. via an output deal that gave both parties more favorable terms. Ironically, their library is slated be distributed on physical home media by a joint venture between WB and Universal beginning in 2021. The company's CEO is Joshua Grode, who replaced founder Thomas Tull after his departure in 2017 (after an interim CEO, Jack Gao).


In 2010, the company created Legendary Comics, a comic publishing division; their first release was Holy Terror by Frank Miller.
