Top Ten Hollywood Movie Studios

The Top Ten
1 Warner Bros Studios

Warner Bros is a out an out undefeated king of studios. Warner Bros not only makes tons of amazing film franchises, but also the only companies that explores through every genre of movies and take risks of different contents. Absolutely amazing. The reason I do not vote for Disney is because Disney has limited content other than buying companies (eg. Marvel, Pixar, Lucasfilm) for content and remaking movies. Don't get me wrong, Disney films are fantastic but we are looking for enough contents, not grosses. Like Warner Bros.

Hasn't been bought and overwritten by Disney yet, therefore making it the best haha. Jokes aside, this company has produced some of the best movies ever made. It's brought back Batman into the Scene, has an array of some of the best Director's ever (Christopher Nolan etc) and has created 8 Solid Films based off a massive Book Series and made them all brilliant at a frequent level (Harry Potter, all 8 Movies were Solid)
They make brilliant risks, and have made Number 1 on this list for a reason.

The studio that has the most produced movies, the studio that has the most successful/highest Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB scores, the studio that explores through every movie genre available, the studio that stands out for me. Warner Bros.

Space Jam, Dave, Disclosure, Interview With The Vampire, Before Sunset, The Green Mile, The Shining, The Fugitive, Never Ending Story, Dog day Afternoon, The Color Purple, Empire of The Sun, Three Kings, Road Warrior Series, Clint Eastwood movies, Kubrick Classics, too much variety, not just superhero movies or fairy tale movies, or animation, from GP like Iron Giant & The Lego Movie to R-rated like American Sniper, to one can beat Warner Brothers.

2 Walt Disney Studios

Disney is pretty much the future of film and overall media. Here's why.

First off, as of July 16, 2017, Disney makes up for about 22% of the box office, topping all of the other major studios. Second, they own TWO major animation studios, Disney Animation and Pixar, the latter of which helped produce the first feature-length computer animated film. Third, they own a well-known record label, Hollywood Records, with a vast label of artists, despite not being as large as Universal or Sony. Fourth, they are responsible for a large number of live stageplays based on their films (remember "The Lion King"? ). Fifth, they own Lucasfilm and Marvel Studios, both of which are responsible for two of the largest film franchises, Star Wars and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, respectively. Sixth, they own ABC, one of the largest television production and distribution companies. Other companies in ABC's portfolio include A&E, History, Lifetime, and ESPN. Finally, they own Maker Studios, a ...more

Walt Disney has to have ever been the most creative movie director to ever have set a foot on earth. He took old stories and classics and fairy tales from generations behind and making them more kid-friendly perfectly. Also, the characters Disney made up himself are just great, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, blah blah blah. Just everything is done nicely, you just know when you see a fictional character you know it’s Disney.

No doubt, Walt Disney is now the number 1 studio of the world, followed by Universal Pictures for its outstanding film series. Walt Disney Studios produces and distributes some worldwide hit movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Toy Story, etc. With the integration of Marvel and Lucasfilm, it finished several more steps behind.

Disney is amazing. The history of it is more entertaining than any other studio EVER. Disney is talented. My personal favourites are toy story, Emperors New Grove, Lion King but my all time favourite so far is Moana. They hit it on the nose with that one... if you haven't seen it then I definitely recommend it.

4 Marvel Studios

Marvel studios is the most overrated franchise of all time. Thumbs up if you agree with me. As Martin said, marvel movies aren't cinema. They are just watch & Forget movies with below average to average at best. But they are overrated because critics get paid & there are many reasons why critics overrate them which the movies do not deserve. Apart from Captain America movies & Tobey & Andrew Spiderman movies, marvel movies are nothing but immature, filled with plot holes, fart jokes etc. I believe Marvel studios is just a tag & it is nothing without Dizny & their critics. Every single MCU Dizny movie was overrated. I mean seriously, incredible hulk, iron Man 3, Thor movies, homecoming AOU, Captain marvel are better than MOS, Aquaman, Joker? Lol! These critics will have to pay in the hell! I respect opinions not agendas...

Reasons why MCU would never get an Oscar... Black panther did but everybody knows why & that they didn't deserve them...

Marvel be like, in order to be ...more

I love marvel studios. Mostly because of spider man and captain america though. But it's awesome.

Their films are guaranteed successes, pretty much, and everyone's copying them. They're golden.

Because they are the one that use to make super humans movie like Thor, Iron Man etc

Viacom’s Paramount buys 21st Century Fox for $92 Billion for the Fox properties (20th Century Fox, FX, Star India, Regency, Big Idea, Fox Entertainment Group etc.)

A Hollywood studio generally doesn't mean much in the context of the quality of a film. However, perhaps the biggest success rate of film is derived from Paramount Pictures. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is an American classic, as are "Psycho" and "The Bad News Bears". In addition, the Paramount logo is easily superior to its competition.

7 Columbia Pictures

Not the best but they've got some great stuff.

GHOSTBUSTERS! (1984, 1989 sequel, and upcoming 2020 3rd movie) YAY!

8 Dreamworks Studios

I don't like dreamworks. They keep on competing with Disney but they are no match. Disney has been around a whole lot longer.

Founded in 1994 by names likeJeffrey Katzenberg
Steven Spielberg and
David Geffen

They have made som om the best movies ever for example shark tale, a real classic 👌

9 Sony Pictures Studios

The Amazing Spiderman 1, The Amazing Spiderman 2, The Social Network, The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo, 22 Jump Street, Skyfall, Hancock, Casino Royale, 2012, Salt, The Karate Kid, Men In Black 3, Looper, District 9, Resident Evil:Retribution, Underworld Awakening, Quantum Of Solace, Zombieland, Captain Phillips, Fury, The Equalizer, Django Unchained, Terminator Salvation, The Tourist, The Smurfs, The Smurfs 2, Arthur Christmas, The Adventures Of Tintin, Elysium, Total Recall, Monsters House, Kung Fu Hustle, House Of Flying Daggers, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, The Patriot, Black Hawk Down, Vertical Limit, Charlie's Angels, Charlie's Angels Full Throttle, Hitch, Ghost Rider, Superbad, Hotel Transylvania, Here Comes The Boom, This Is The End, 21 Jump Street, Evil Dead, Bad Teacher, Stuart Little, Air Force One, Men In Black, Moneyball, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2, Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, Zookeeper.

This studio is not doing the best job with its franchises, it seems. They squandered Spider-Man twice, the 'Total Recall' and 'RoboCop' remakes disappointed, their latest Bond film was a letdown, and the new 'Ghostbusters' is being ridiculed six ways from Sunday. They need to get in gear.

What? They suck. They make The Emoji Movie. Even though they make good movies such as Baby Driver, The Social Network, and Sausage Party.

Untraceable Love this movie

10 Pixar Pixar, also referred to as Pixar Animation Studios, is an American computer animation film studio based in Emeryville, California that is a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company. Pixar began in 1979 as the Graphics Group, part of the Lucasfilm computer division, before its spin-out as a corporation ...read more.

Wow, I'm really surprised that Pixar isn't at least in the top ten! Pixar Animation Studios has produced so many influential, deep films that I'm very surprised that only 3% of the people who took this survey thought it was the best. Filled from beginning to end, most Pixar films (I exclude Cars 2, because it didn't have a very strong message) have amazing messages, scores, ideas, and plots. The characters in EVERY single film are well thought out and believable, as well as very entertaining. For example, Woody from Toy Story was wholly original, just as Mike Wazowski was extremely memorable. The movies are all funny, and all have amazing messages. From the delightful yet simple message of Cars, to the originality and uniqueness of Monsters, Inc, Pixar has made a name for itself in history. Let's not mention the fantastic scores that EVERY SINGLE Pixar film has! Randy Newman shines the brightest, in my opinion, with amazing creations such as 'You've Got a Friend in Me', 'I Will Go ...more

Toy Story, Toy Story 2, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, Wall-E, Up, Toy Story 3, Inside Out - I only just listed the best movies that they've put out.

Pixar is the most famous in making an animation movie

Pixar is Disney&Pixar.. and like all what Disney take is simple the best

The Contenders
11 New Line Cinema

Lord of the Rings, Dumb and Dumber, Se7en, The Notebook, Blade, American History X and the more that doesn't take itself too seriously. There's just a lot of variety from this Warner studio that it's highly entertaining

The releaser of the unbelievable Lord of the Rings trilogy and many more great movies

Technically New Line Cinema is owned by Warner Bros

Isn't new line, no more. Final editor is warner?

12 MGM Studios

James Bond, Rocky, Creed, Silence of the Lambs, Carrie, Raging Bull, The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly, The Wizard of Oz, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Poltergeist (1982), Child's Play, Singing in the Rain, Robocop, The Terminator, Roadhouse, The Hobbit, Jeepers Creepers, Spaceballs...MGM made so many great films, I can't name them all.

It's a great studio but that lion scared the crap out of me as a kid and still scared the crap out of me today. I like their movies only if I better watch out with that Leo The Lion. I have a pantheraphobia (fear of big cats) and that's actually no joke about my fears.

MGM dominated Hollywood for decades. They WERE the gold standard for success in the industry. I am doubtful any movie studio will ever replicate the decades of sunshine and roses MGM had.

The original studios Ben-Hur, Gone With the Wind, Wizard of Oz, Singing in the Rain, Gigi, Showboat, Guys and Doll, Pink Panther, Skyfall, Casino Royale and Rocky.

13 Legendary Pictures
14 Lions Gate Entertainment

Hunger Games series. My favourite studio!

Coming up in January 2018: The Commuter.

The hunger games series

I don't have one

15 Studio Ghibli

They have not made any bad movies.

16 DC Entertainment

Best movie studio in my opinion, dark knight trilogy, DCEU films and their succes since 1930s

I like dc very much

They are amazing

They suck!

17 Lucasfilm

Star Wars! My favorite franchise!

18 United Artists
19 RKO Pictures
20 Paramount
21 The Weinstein Company

A producer of Mini-major films, this should have been No. 10.

22 A24

They make some great movies but fly under the radar too often. List of good movies are Spring Breakers (I know people are split on this), Bling Ring, The Specacular Now, Room, Green Room, Equals, Ex-Machina, and The Witch.

23 Pure Flix

Crappy Christian movies

24 Nickelodeon Movies

Good especially henry danger

Producing good movies since 1998
