Open Road Films is a distribution label that was created in 2011 as a joint venture between theatre companies AMC and Regal as a way to fill some of their many screens (though they do also distribute to other chains). Distributing mostly genre fare, nearly all of their titles are pickups that are made independently or were dropped by other studios but unlike most studios, do not produce projects in-house. The company also has deals with Universal (DVD/Blu Ray/on demand) and Showtime (pay cable). The studio was sold to Tang Media Partners in 2017, although it will retain a marketing partnership with its original owners.

In October 2017, the studio was quietly merged with IM Global and renamed to Global Road Entertainment, which later declared bankruptcy after a slate of bombs (Midnight Sun, Show Dogs, Hotel Artemis and A-X-L). After being purchased by Raven Capital Management, the Open Road brand was revived and began releasing new films in late 2020.
