Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and Annapurna Pictures teamed up for a joint venture in U.S. theatrical distribution. Both MGM and Annapurna will share funding for the venture; however, each company will hold creative control over their respective projects. Additionally, MGM and Annapurna have formed a releasing entity, Mirror, for theatrical releasing opportunities for third-party films. This new venture represents MGM’s return to U.S. theatrical distribution.
