Top Ten Hollywood Movie Studios


The Top Ten

1 Warner Bros Studios

Dark Knight, Inception, The Green Mile, The Shawshank Redemption, V for Vendetta, Kubrick Movies, and so on...

So Far Warner Brothers is the only Studio that churns-out the Maximum Movies and undertakes Tremendous Risks with Fresh Properties and Naive People who later go on to write History. They have been making quality Movies and Encourage Film-Makers to Augment their Scale & Vision. This is what makes them Incredible and Exceptional from the lot.

There are a lot's of great titles released from this studio including the Matrix trilogy, The Dark Knight, A.I.: Artificial Intelligence, Slumdog Millionaire and many others - MatrixGuy

They make many awesome movies like dark knight,inception,green mile,and great cartoons like bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck

Hello. My name is Gordon Richard I a Canadian east coast. Not to much movies out there that I have not seen. But I also travel a lot and listen to people, over the last 5 years the movie industry has stoped leading the role of giving the one thing that the public what's.. Movies that are NEW... Not much left out there really get that part but.. Think of this one space, why space because a movie before this age was a form of the unone you never seen before now we no it all so space.. Not one like fighting or defend earth but a movie about them helping to build our furture ships, travel, longer life's, cleaner water new type of cars, that runs on salt water my idea, P. S I think it would work to.. But just a open the eyes again movie new thank you face book

Fox makes a lot of crappy movies like percy jackson, alvin and the chipmunks, and diary of a wimpy kid

Kiss of Death with David Caruso
Point Break with Keanu Reeves
Working Girl with Harrison Ford
Die Hard with Bruce Willis

I'm not a fan of this studio because a lot of their movies suck like Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials (the first and third movies were okay), they ruined Murder on the Orient Express, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Percy Jackson, Alvin and the Chipmunks (all 4), the two latest Ice Age films, and let's not forget the Marvel stuff they ruined like Fantastic Four, X-Men: The Last Stand and Apocalypse, and more.

Their good movies are as follows: The Martian, Hidden Figures, Die Hard, Deadpool, Logan, The Planet of the Apes new trilogy (the old franchise sucks though), and X-Men: Days of Future Past. I might be forgetting something.

4 Marvel Studios

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. - BKAllmighty

This is actually owned to Disney so should not be on the list.

Because of that suspanse

5 Universal Studios

Back to the future, Jurassic park, the illumination movies, Hitchcock movies. This is definitely the greatest movie studio of all time. Best logo too.

The Universal Monsters and a load of Hitchcock films to boot!

Universal studios is great1 the rides are really cool too! They are very creative

Cool name.

6 Dreamworks Studios

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

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

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

7 Sony Pictures Studios

Men In Black.. All of them was the best :D

Untraceable Love this movie

Sony is the best

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

8 Columbia Pictures

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

9 Paramount Studios

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.

The First Five MARVEL Cinematic Universe Movies were extremely perfectly awesomely brilliantly fun!

How can you NOT love their amazing movies like Iron Man and Hulk? Captain America and Tomb Raider?

It's the best one out there! I even made a "What If Paramount Pictures had a Mascot? "! Her name is Patricia and she is an anthropomorphic Mountain Fox. ~VanillaFlare

10 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 - MatrixGuy

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

Technically New Line Cinema is owned by Warner Bros

The Contenders

11 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.

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. - BKAllmighty

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.

Tom and Jerry? I couldn't stop laughing and laughing at how funny cat and mouse are.

12 Pixar 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 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

How is this so far down!

Why is it lower than DREAMWORKS!

Their studios is located in Emeryville, CA, not Hollywood.

18 Culver Studios
19 Lucasfilm

Star Wars! My favorite franchise!

20 The Weinstein Company

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

21 Deluxe Digital

One of the lesser, but meh.

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 Laika Laika


24 Star Cinema
25 Raleigh Studios
26 Studio Ghibli

no its not

27 Aardman Studios

With Shaun the Sheep Movie, Early Man, Chicken Run, and Wallace and Gromit, this studio is a masterpiece, especially with Nick Park directing most of them, and don't forget that movie with the 99% on rotten tomatoes and is based on a kids T.V. show.

Every single movie they make are a masterpeice and never fails, even Warner Bros and Walt Disney failed in some movies.

Why is this studio so low on the list, literally last place? They deserve to be in the top 10. This studio never fails (in my opinion). They have brilliant ideas and they make their plot simple without fail. Unlike the most famous studios, they still had a few failed movies like Disney (Chicken Little, Planes, G-Force, Home on the Range, Frozen, etc), 20th Century Fox (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Percy Jackson, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Ice Age: Collision Course, etc), Sony (Emoji Movie, The Dark Tower, etc), and Warner Bros (Batman v Superman, Justice League, Suicide Squad, Geostorm, etc). This is not my favorite studio, but there was not a single failed movie in this studio (the MCU also didn't have a failed movie).

28 Fox


29 Pure Flix
30 Time Warner Company

And have made movies and shows from new line cinema and Columbia pictures

Time warner makes every Cartoon Network cartoon series and all of there movies. and own dc comics and have made tons of movies and shows from warner bros, warner premier, dc comics, kids wb, marvel studios, universal studios, sony pictures and 20th century fox.

31 Touchstone Pictures

I think Fox Searchlight Pictures is better at creating new ideas for movies than any other film studio out there. Even Disney!

33 Skydance
