Background

United Artists Releasing is a film distribution joint venture between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios and Annapurna Pictures. Originally named Mirror Releasing, LLC when it was formed on December 2017, the current name would be adopted on February 5, 2019, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the United Artists studio. The label also distributes films from MGM's Orion Pictures.

(April 12, 2019- )

Nickname: "Segmented UA"

Logo: On a black background, we see a white "U" with an "A" made of segmented lines behind it; overall, it looks rather similar to the 2000 logo. "UNITED ARTISTS" is below, with "RELEASING" in a spaced-out font beneath it.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Current. This was first seen at the end of Missing Link (only the Annapurna and Laika logos appear at the beginning of the film). Also appears at the end of The Addams Family, Child's Play (2019), Gretel & Hansel, and the remake of Valley Girl. This might of been seen on theatrical prints of The Hustle, Booksmart, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette, but home media releases show no evidence.

Editor's Note: Time will tell whether or not it will be a placeholder or if a proper logo will be made.
