When you invest in Legion M you own a stake in all of our projects, including our quest to bring the story of Robert Smalls to the big screen! 



We founded Legion M because we saw a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create an entertainment company OWNED by fans.


Why? Because no matter where you sit in the value chain, a built-in audience can be one of the most valuable assets in entertainment. By uniting fans as shareholders, we’re attempting to create a company with a built-in audience for every project it makes.

Legion M’s logo is the Roman numeral for 1 million. That's because our long-term goal is to unite 1 million fans as shareholders of the company. Our mission is to create a massive grassroots audience — a Legion of fans — that we believe could make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.


Emmy-Winning Digital Pioneers

Co-founders Paul Scanlan and Jeff Annison are Emmy-winning serial entrepreneurs and digital pioneers. In 1999, the duo (along with one other cofounder) started MobiTV, the first company in the U.S. to launch live streaming television on mobile phones. From 2003 to 2009, the trio grew the company into a worldwide leader in streaming media with 300+ employees, more than $100 million of VC investment, and an Emmy Award for innovation in television. 

In addition, Legion M has attracted a top-tier advisory board that includes legendary actor William Shatner, billion-dollar producer Dean Devlin, author/entrepreneur Eric Ries (author of “The Lean Startup"), and current/former executives from Netflix, Sony, Lucasfilm, Epic Games, and MGM.



Like many early stage companies, Legion M is not focused on short-term revenue, but on building what we believe will become long-term competitive advantages for the company. We're willing to sacrifice short-term revenue for long-term strategic gain because we know the bets we make as a Legion of 35,000 pale in comparison to the bets we'll be able to make as a Legion of 1,000,000.

That said, Legion M has already demonstrated an ability to generate revenue from a diverse array of both traditional and non-traditional revenue streams, including:

 Since Legion M was founded in 2016, the company has successfully closed 8 rounds of fundraising and built one of the largest shareholder communities in JOBS Act history. 

  1. Legion M's share price is not set on an open market the same way a publicly traded stock is. Instead, the company sets the stock price, and the public decides whether or not they would like to buy it.
  2. In January of 2022, Legion M shareholders voted to pass a 10-for-1 stock split. The prices listed on this table are presented on a post-split basis.
  3. Beginning in Round 7, Legion M’s offerings included the opportunity to receive bonus shares as a reward, which changes the effective share price paid by the investor.

why invest

Let’s Make an M-Shaped Dent in the Universe!


Invest in a Diversified Slate of Projects

Since Legion M was founded in 2016, we’ve developed a slate of projects diversified across genre, medium, business model, and risk profile. We’ve demonstrated an ability to work with top tier partners, from billion-dollar producers like Dean Devlin (Independence Day, Stargate, Leverage, The Librarians) and Michael Uslan (Batman, The Dark Knight, Joker) to renowned creators like Stan Lee (creator of the Marvel Universe) and Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats) and top-shelf distribution partners including NEON (Parasite, I Tonya), Bleecker Street (The Assistant, Beasts of No Nation), Searchlight (JoJo Rabbit, The Shape of Water), SpectreVision (No Man of God, Color out of Space) and Nederlander Worldwide Productions (Hamilton, Wicked, The Lion King)

the problem

Entertainment is a “hit-driven business” 

Entertainment can be extremely lucrative, but is also unpredictable. Consumer trends, technologies, and distribution models are constantly changing. Movies and TV shows are expensive bets, with budgets that can reach the tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. Every project has potential to be a breakout hit...but even the biggest names in the business sometimes strike out.

How can you improve your odds of success?

the solution

Harnessing the Power of Fans

While technologies and trends will come and go, there’s been one constant in entertainment since the earliest days of silent film: the importance of the audience. It's the audience (or lack thereof) that determines success or failure, and the audience that’s responsible for every penny in ticket sales, subscription fees, and advertising revenue.

That's why a company owned by fans is such a powerful idea. When we pool our collective power, we have potential to:

  • Fill theaters opening night
  • Negotiate better terms
  • Attract the best talent
  • Harness the "wisdom of the crowd" to make decisions
  • Find the next big thing
  • Reduce downside risk
  • Increase the chance of creating a hit

We believe that by harnessing the power of fans, Legion M can create sustainable long-term competitive advantages that could potentially make Legion M one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.

Opening the gates of hollywood


Most companies view investors simply as a source of capital. For Legion M, they are the foundation of our business. We are a community as well as a corporation, and our job is to create value for this community with things like:

  • Invitations to red carpet premieres
  • Set visits
  • Roles as extras in our films
  • Special events (e.g. Stan Lee Handprint Ceremony, Saturn Awards, etc.)
  • Opening weekend meetups for movie releases
  • Online Q&As with actors, directors, and other Hollywood insiders
  • Special investor-only offers, discounts, and invitations
  • Lounges at events like Comic Con and Sundance Film Festival
  • FILM SCOUT app and Elite Scout Program
  • Inclusion in the Legion M production credit 

The wonderful thing about a fan-owned company is that financial ROI and fun are not necessarily mutually exclusive. The more engaged and excited our audience is, the more buzz and value we can create for the project, which in turn increases the project’s chances of success to the benefit of the company and all its shareholders.

Meet the director of "My Dead Friend Zoe"

With last week's big announcement about My Dead Friend Zoe (Ed Harris, Sonequa Martin-Green and Natalie Morales joining the cast), we thought it was worthwhile to share the video below. It now needs to be updated to reflect the new cast members, but in the meantime it's a wonderful introduction to writer/director Kyle Hausmann-Stokes and a reminder of why we fell in love with this project in the first place.

When you invest in Legion M, you own a stake in the company and every project on our slate. It's been over 8 months since we first announced My Dead Friend Zoe as a development project, but the video above shows why we work so hard to push this project forward ever day. Aside from being entertaining (which every movie needs to be) this is an important film with an important message. Kyle is the perfect person to tell it, and we couldn't be more excited and proud to see the progress he and the team have made.

Onward and Upward!

Paul, Jeff, and the Legion M team

***Risk vs Reward***

Early stage investments like Legion M are speculative, illiquid and involve a high degree of risk. Statistically, most early stage companies fail, so you should never invest more than you can afford to lose.

But with risk comes potential for reward. If you can afford $40 to take a shot at making history, we'd love to have you join our team. Every great company begins with investors willing to take a chance on something that's never been done.

Ed Harris, Sonequa Martin-Green & Natalie Morales Lead the Cast for Legion M's "My Dead Friend Zoe"

Deadline broke the news this morning and we couldn’t be more excited to share our first cast attachments including the immensely talented, four-time Oscar-nominated Ed Harris (known for Westworld, Apollo 13, and Pollock), the dynamic starship captain Sonequa Martin-Green (renowned for Star Trek: Discovery, The Walking Dead, and Space Jam), and the versatile and hilarious Natalie Morales (notable for No Hard Feelings, Language Lessons, and Parks & Rec).

For those who may have missed earlier updates, My Dead Friend Zoe is a gripping and emotional dark comedy from talented writer and director Kyle Hausmann-Stokes. Kyle is an award-winning filmmaker, a Bronze Star veteran of Iraq, a USC film graduate, a former paratrooper, a co-founder of Veterans in Media and Entertainment, and a creative visionary.

A freshly original script, the film expertly navigates the delicate balance between humor and drama, chronicling our protagonist's profound journey of self-discovery and the meaningful emotional connections she forges along the way. Inspired by films like CODA, Fight Club, and Nebraska, this project possesses immense potential both in terms of entertainment and commercial success.

Beyond its artistic merits, we are proud that this film sheds light on veterans and female soldiers in a fresh and compelling way, while delivering a powerful social message about mental health and suicide prevention. Each of our cast attachments have responded enthusiastically to the script, and we have already received positive interest from buyers and distributors.

In addition, this project represents the latest example of Legion M’s “leveling up” from a company that makes small investments in other people’s projects to one that develops and produces projects of our own. The business ramifications of this (which are illustrated in this blog post) have potential to be very significant. More to come on that in a future update.

In the meantime, please take a moment to check out Legion M’s Round 9 Offering on StartEngine. When you invest in Legion M you are joining over 40,000 shareholders (a number which is growing every day) to own a stake in My Dead Friend Zoe, along with ALL the projects on the Legion M slate. We’re growing faster than ever, and with projects like this, there’s never been a better time to invest in Legion M!

William Shatner doc headed to Cannes sales market

Our release plans for the William Shatner documentary "You Can Call Me Bill" are coming into focus. We announced a month or two ago that we'd partnered with XYZ Films as our sales agent for North America (US and Canada), and today we're pleased to announce a partnership with Blue Finch Releasing as our sales agent for the rest of the world.

Read the exclusive announcement on Variety.

If you are unfamiliar with the term "Sales Agent", the best analogy is a real estate agent. The same way you'd hire a realtor to sell your house, you hire a sales agent to sell your film. Whereas the job of a real estate agent is bringing buyers to your house, a sales agent is responsible for taking your film out to buyers. This can include everyone from massive international companies like Netflix that buy rights for the entire world, all the way to down to small local distributors responsible for getting your film seen in over 40 territories around the world.

The first opportunity for Blue Finch will come next week at the Cannes film festival, where film buyers/sellers from around the world congregate at one of the largest international markets of the year. Blue Finch will be meeting with buyers and -- thanks to a partnership with technology company Proto, Legion M is beaming Bill into Cannes as a "hologram" via one of their super cool volumetric displays. (If that last sentence doesn't make sense to you, don't fret -- we'll share some pics or vids in a later update). 

Stay tuned for more updates on distribution (including info on our plans in the US) coming soon. In the meantime, please join us in welcoming BlueFinch into the Legion M family, and wish them luck next week in Cannes!

Onward and Upward!

Business Update - What We're Building and Why It Matters

It’s been seven years since Legion M burst onto the entertainment scene with our first-of-its-kind business model and we want to take a moment to reflect on what we're building together, why it matters now, and examine the great potential it has as we keep growing.

As we have stated many times, Legion M’s number one priority has been and continues to be the growth of our community. Growth is the most critical key to our long-term success — even more important than revenue or any other metric at this phase. A large community of engaged and passionate entertainment fans is the ultimate fuel for our fly-wheel, and is so important that we even built the premise into the company's M̅ logo (the M with a bar over it is the Roman numeral for one million). This update will help explain why we are so obsessed with growth.

In the past several years, our community has grown from a small but engaged group of a few thousand investors to multiple thousands, then tens of thousands, then multiple tens of thousands to where we are today with over 40,000 and fast approaching 50,000. As one of the largest equity crowdfunding communities in the space, we are happy and proud of the success we have had, especially noting that we continued to grow through the pandemic and have been seeing signs of acceleration in the growth curve. We believe these trends could accelerate even more as we become more well known and gain access to bigger and better projects.

However, the growth of our shareholders is just one dimension of the importance of our community. The true value is derived from the engagement and meaningful impact our community has on the business and how that results in benefits to all shareholders. From the outset, our active community has been a valuable asset for Legion M, providing advantages at every stage of the process. This value goes beyond merely supporting our projects when they release, it begins at the earliest stages of the process — including discovery — where the community has the ability to help us find and discover projects like Defiant, but also to inject momentum and build grassroots support before a project is even greenlit. The impact can also extend to the very important financing and greenlighting stages, and continue all the way into helping achieve a buzzworthy and successful release. Meaningful engagement and impact in all three of these stages — discovery, financing, and release — makes Legion M a burgeoning triple threat in the entertainment industry.

As evidenced by the examples and data below, the measurable impact that our community has on our projects at different stages is not only significant today, but more importantly, when used as a tool for projecting the potential impact as our community expands, reveals some incredibly exciting visions of what we could achieve at scale. 

The Power To Inject Early Momentum Into A Project

Let’s start at the beginning of a project before it goes into production. In late 2019 we produced a comic book title for a film we are producing titled Girl With No Name. At the time we had about 16K investors . Leaning primarily on our community for presales of the comic, we were able to generate over $130K making it one of the most backed single comic books in Kickstarter history. Not only did this provide a nice influx of revenue to the company and help offset our development expenses, but it was a fantastic example of how the power of our community added value and momentum to the film project, giving new life to the financing prospects for the film itself.

Today, we have nearly 3x as many investors which could reasonably suggest the potential for increased revenue, if revenue were to increase linearly with the growth, a single comic book from Legion M could potentially generate hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Looking ahead and extrapolating to if/when we reach our goal of one million investors, our community would be 62.5 times bigger than when we did the Girl With No Name book. Scaling the numbers linearly could result in millions of dollars in pre-sales for a book like this which could literally lead to a potential bestseller and one of the top-selling comic books in the country. However, it is important to note that it remains to be seen if our growth will scale linearly or just increase substantially. Either way, this is all still very good news for Legion M.

The Power To Independently Finance And Greenlight A Project

While it is never expected and always optional, in our survey outreach, many of our Legion M shareholders expressed a strong interest in making direct investments into specific projects as a compliment to their Legion M investment and with the goal of achieving shorter-term ROI.

In June of 2021 we did an early experiment with direct investments into a Legion M project with our partnership with OneDoor Studios, and invited our community to invest directly into the development of the feature film script for Calculated. At that time, we had about 30K investors and with a few emails and social posts, we were able to raise over $500K from our community for the Calculated project in just a few short weeks.

Fast forward to this year where we did another experiment with direct investments, this time to fully finance our William Shatner documentary, You Can Call Me Bill, with our innovative Fan-First Financing Structure. With 40K investors we were able to raise more than $800K (including the wait list) in just a matter of days and likely would have raised north of $1M if we had kept the round open and offered it beyond the initial group of reservation holders. The offering sold out before we got the chance to issue the press release announcing the round was open or Bill was able to tweet to his 2.5MM twitter followers. Soon after raising this capital we announced the film had been accepted to the prestigious SXSW festival for its world premiere, where it received great reviews (the film is currently 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 10 critical reviews). As we now enter the monetization phase, we expect this project will provide income to the film’s investors and Legion M for years to come.

Using these two examples and doing some simple math again to extrapolate to one million investors, the numbers if scaled linearly are truly spectacular. At one million investors, Legion M would be 25 times the size we were when we did You Can Call Me Bill and 33 times the size we were when we did Calculated. If we scale those numbers and are able to maintain engagement, it’s not hard to imagine Legion M having the capability to greenlight projects with budgets of tens of millions of dollars with just a few emails.

The Power To Drive Revenue And Monetize Our Projects

Let’s keep going into the prime stage of impact — when we release a project. In 2018 we introduced a Legion M project titled Mandy with a day and date release via RLJ. For those that know the industry, a day and date release is typically released in just a handful of theaters with a minimal amount of marketing (if any at all). Being in theaters is primarily a way of helping drive the premium rental price for VOD. At the time we released Mandy, Legion M had about 8K investors and with our community driving the majority of the marketing and grassroots awareness for the film, we quite literally blew away all expectations, ultimately driving over $1.2M in box office alone (Read: Surprise Theatrical Success of Mandy). We can’t take credit for all the revenue, but we know we played a massive role in helping it reach its breakout success and we have continued to drive revenues for that project ever since.

Fast forward to this year, Legion M has grown to over 40K investors and recently teamed up with Fathom Events to bring The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King back to theaters. Again, the results were way beyond the early expectations, driving over $1.2M in box office in the first night alone, out-performing movies like Air, Renfield and The Pope’s Exorcist despite the fact those films were on 2-3X the number of screens. Now granted, The Lord of the Rings is a big franchise with a large fan base so we can’t take all the credit, but the film did not get a lot of marketing support beyond what Legion M, Fathom Events, and Lost Odyssey did. It's also a 20 year old movie, readily available on streaming, Blu-ray, and DVD, so we believe a substantial part of the success is coming from the engagement and awareness made possible with our community.

Using these two examples and extrapolating out to one million investors, Legion M would be 125 times the size we were for Mandy and 25 times the size were for the Fathom Events release. With this in mind and again, assuming the numbers scale, one could imagine a scenario where the Legion M community could help drive up to $25-100M in box office for just one project.

Looking ahead, it's clear that the Legion M community will only continue to grow and become even more impactful. As the entertainment industry evolves, the importance of having a passionate and engaged community adding value at every stage of a project just simply cannot be overstated.

Our dedication to growth and excitement for the future stems from the fact that each new investor milestone we achieve unlocks new potential and widens the gap between us and the competition. With 50K investors in our sights and 100K up soon after, we are honing our ability to make books best-sellers or to flash-fund films without any dependence on others, and then to drive substantial revenue through the power of our own community — this is what we are building and why we believe Legion M has the potential to be one of the most influential companies in Hollywood.

FAQ: If you've got all these highly paid celebrities involved with Legion M, why do you need MY money?

We get a lot of questions when we're out talking about Legion M. Hopefully you do too! If so, we want to arm you with responses to frequently asked questions like the one below.

If you have a question you'd like to see answered in a post like this -- please send mail to team@legionm.com.  

QUESTION: If you've got all these highly paid celebrities involved, why do you need MY money?

SHORT ANSWER: Great question. The answer is that your money is not what's most important. It's YOU.

LONG ANSWER: First off, we hope it's clear that we're not asking for donations. We're uniting fans to OWN a piece of Hollywood, not contribute to it. The whole goal is for the company to be successful so you MAKE money from this deal. I.e. imagine if you had been one of the early investors in Disney when they were just getting started...

It's a super risky investment. Every company WANTS to be the next Disney, but most end up being the next Quibi -- a company that raised $1.75 billion from big investors but couldn't get off the ground and went out of business a couple years later. The fact is, most startups fail, and if that happens to Legion M you'll likely lose your investment. That's why we've made the minimum just $40 - so folks can take a swing without breaking the bank. 

That said, with risk comes potential for reward. We think Legion M is a big idea, and what makes it a big idea is YOU.

That's because YOU are the one with power in Hollywood. You buy the tickets, pay the subscriptions, and decide what to watch. Individually your choices don't matter, but there are a lot of people just like you, and TOGETHER we’re responsible for powering a multi-trillion dollar global industry.

Legion M’s mission is to harness that power, and give all of us a chance to own a piece of it. When you invest in Legion M you are buying stock in the company - for as little as $40 you can join more than 40,000 shareholders with a stake in the company's success, a voice in helping decide what gets produced, and a chance to be a part of making history.

If this sounds interesting, please check out our offering at startengine.com/legionm and let us know what you think. If you aren't sure, you are welcome to join as a free member at legionm.com/join-legion-m. As a free member you don't own any stake in the company, but can still be part of what we're trying to do. There's no better way to see first hand what Legion M is all about.


Early stage investments like Legion M are speculative, illiquid and involve a high degree of risk. Statistically, most early stage companies fail, so you should never invest more than you can afford to lose.

But with risk comes potential for reward. If you can afford $40 to take a shot at making history, we'd love to have you join our team. Every great company begins with investors willing to take a chance on something that's never been done.

Submitted for Feedback: The Official Legion M Movie Rating Scale

They say opinions are like elbows -- everyone has them and nobody cares about yours. That's not true though. Legion M cares deeply about yours.

That's because as a company owned by fans, we want to utilize your wisdom, passion, and experience. We believe our community is a lot smarter than we are (which is not really saying that much...), and that by finding creative ways to harness the "wisdom of the crowd" we can make better decisions for the benefit the company and all it's shareholders.

One area where your opinions are particularly relevant is the evaluation of movies. There's no "right" answer of course -- I may hate something and you may love it...and we can both be correct. However, in aggregate the opinions of the audience can be the difference between success and failure for a film.

One challenge with evaluating movies is the lack of a commonly accepted scale. Whether you are dealing with two thumbs up, a fresh vs. rotten tomato or 4.5 out of 5 star review, there's a lack of uniformity in ratings scales. If you give something 5 out of 5 stars is that because the movie is amazing, or because you are an easy grader? Is my 4 out of 5 the exact same as your 8 out of 10? What do you do when you think something is a 3.5 but you are forced to select a 3 or 4?

To address these problems we humbly propose the Official Legion M Rating Scale. This is what we use internally to ensure our ratings are apples to apples. We thought it was worth sharing for feedback.

Ratings are based on the following 5 point scale. Fractional scores are allowed (and yes, 3.786 is a valid rating for those that are so inclined).

5 - Excellent. One of the best movies you've seen in the past year. By definition, this should be a very small number of elite films -- the best of the best.

4 - Very Good. A movie you would recommend to most* of your friends. The number of films that fall into this category probably depends on how selective you are...both with your movies and your friends. For most people this equates to the top 20% of the movies they see.

3.14 - A movie that's particularly good with ice-cream.

3 - Average. An average movie is neither good nor bad. It just exists. This is the fat part of the bell curve, and for most people will represent 50% - 60% of the films they see.

2 - Bad. A movie you would warn most* of your friends to avoid. Once again, the number of films that fall into this category probably depends on your outlook and disposition. If you find more than 10%-20% of the movies you watch are 2s, we recommend you find a better way to choose movies. Or a good therapist.

1 - Horrible. A movie you hate with a white-hot passion. Hopefully you don't end up with too many of these in your life, but when you do we recommend following up immediately with a 3.14 rated movie to get the bad taste out of your mouth.

*****Note that we say "most" of your friends. That's because we know you hang out one or two weirdos that will love all your 1s and 2s, and the one grouch that will hate all your 4s and 5s Don't sweat it -- this is art after all. How boring life would be if we all liked the same things!

That's our proposal -- feel free to tell us what you think by emailing team@legionm.com! And feel free to rate it on whatever scale you choose.


"This Is Not Financial Advice" headed to Tribeca in June!

It's been an exciting year already, and now we have even more good news! As reported by IndieWire, This Is Not Financial Advice, which Legion M is executive producing along with Optimist, will be having its world premiere at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York on June 10th. Legion M is an equity investor and executive producer on the project, which means that we have a stake in film. 

This Is Not Financial Advice explores the psychology of investing through the story of the "Dogecoin Millionaire" (a guy who cashed out his life savings to invest in a joke cryptocurrency) and a generation of new investors powered by the internet and social media. In addition to being wildly entertaining, the documentary serves as an informative look at the investment landscape of today, contrasting some of the wildly different strategies investors employ as they attempt to conquer it.

We are thrilled at this news and can't wait to share more of this film's journey with you, including details on possible opportunities to attend the premiere!

Onward and Upward!

IndieWire: ‘Air’ and ‘Renfield’ Were Outgrossed Thursday by ‘The Return of the King’

Here's a fun Saturday update! Thursday night's screenings of "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (see our earlier updates for info on Legion M's role on these screenings) were a huge hit! IndieWire reports that we were #2 in the nation Thursday, outgrossing movies like Air, Renfied, and The Pope's Exorcist despite the fact that those films were on 2x - 3x the number of screens. 

It just goes to show that when fans unite, we move the needle!

It also speaks to the power of theatrical releases. This movie is currently available in living rooms via HBO Max. That fact that so many of us chose to suit up and pay to see it in a theater speaks volumes.

If you missed Thursday night, there's still time! The film has been so popular Fathom added a bunch more showings through Wed of next week -- including some important weekend afternoon dates for folks with earlier bedtimes! Check out showtimes and get your tickets today!



“The Return of the King” back in theaters. What does that mean for Legion M investors?

Today marks the beginning of the 20th Anniversary screenings of The Return of the King. The reception has been outstanding – what started as a single night event at a few hundred theaters has exploded into screenings at more than 1,000 theaters over 7 full days. While many of the screenings are sold out, new screens and showtimes keep popping up. If the showing you want to see is sold out, call the theater and ask them to add another screen! Especially if you have a gaggle of hobbits or orcs you can bring to the party…

Legion M is proud to be a part of this event, in partnership with Warner Bros, Fathom Events and Lost Odyssey. We put up some of the money required to get these films into theaters and partnered with Lost Odyssey to provide the bonus footage (featuring Elijah Wood) that will play in conjunction with the film. In exchange, we get a percentage of all ticket sales, meaning that Legion M earns revenue from every ticket sold.

Just as importantly, the opportunity to work with a specialty distributor like Fathom Events, a major studio like Warner Bros, and a wonderful partner like Lost Odyssey are all great steps as Legion M continues to “level up” on our quest to DO GREAT THINGS!

The business of theatrical releases has been completely upended over the past 5 years and we expect it will continue to be so for the foreseeable future. Trends that began with the rise of streaming dramatically accelerated when the entire industry shut down during the pandemic. Today, theaters are continuing to feel the effect of supply chain disruptions (the movies you see in theaters today are typically the result of what people were working on 1-3 years ago), while the “experience economy” comes roaring back with people hungry for social experiences after the isolation of COVID. These are the sort of dynamics that can be extremely disruptive for large entrenched businesses...but have potential to be great opportunities for small, nimble companies like Legion M. We’re excited to be in the mix, learning all we can and trying to make the most of it!

So with that in mind, we encourage you to take a look at the showtimes near you, round up some friends, and go see one of the most epic action adventure movies of all time the way it was meant to be seen: ON THE BIG SCREEN. It’s been 20 years since the initial release – who knows when you’ll get a chance like this again!

Finally, when you go to the show, be sure to GET THERE EARLY. They have a great pre show (including a Legion M video!), and Fathom Events start at the designated time. I.e. If showtime is 7:30, it starts at 7:30, not at 7:55 after 25 minutes of trailers.

Onward and Upward!

Did we not do the stock split? I invested in 2016 and in 2022 and I have the same number of shares I've always had.

I am a bit confused. I set up my account almost 2 months ago and as of today nothing is showing up. I’ve talked to customer service but I guess I don’t understand what they try to tell me but I wish I could understand when my investment will be processed. Thanks!

Hello. How would I go about changing the name on my legion M account? Wanted to have it in my sons name as a gift. Startengine said it must be done through you.

Hello, I have some questions: 1. How big is Legion M's TAM (total addressable market)? 2. Regarding your long-term exit strategy; is going public the only option here? (because if you were to be acquired by another company, you wouldn't be "fan-owned" anymore?) ?

Hi Brandi I invested in the an early round andi double check and it was confirmed but I never received an email to KoreConX.

I'm an indie filmmaker myself and have never found my "tribe" to get a feature movie going. I have many ideas and have practiced on numerous shorts and am ITCHING to make a feature. Does Legion M have channels for investors to also find resources and maybe distribution/funding for their own movies?

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
