UA logo
Designer:  Unknown
Typography:  Unknown
Launched:  April 12, 2019

Until 2019, Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) remained the final film to be distributed by United Artists; with MGM being demoted to a co-distributor with Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros. and others, United Artists was no longer active as a distributor and remained solely as a production company.

On February 5, 2019, MGM and Annapurna Pictures resurrected the United Artists brand to expand their American joint theatrical distribution venture, rebranding it as United Artists Releasing. The decision was made to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the studio's foundation. The company has a release slate of 10 to 14 films per year, including four to six films set for worldwide release from MGM, two to four low budget genre films from Orion Pictures (another revived MGM holding whose distribution team was absorbed into UA Releasing to bolster and accompany its existing staff), and three to five auteur-driven films from Annapurna. It also intends to work with third-party filmmakers and production companies to supplement its slate, offering content creators an alternative distribution option outside the studio system.

However, on March 4, 2023, Amazon - after its purchase of MGM in 2022 - shuts down United Artists Releasing and folded into Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
