Appian Way Productions is a film production company in West Hollywood, California, established by actor and producer Leonardo DiCaprio. The company's first film was The Assassination of Richard Nixon (2004). It then released the 2004 biopic The Aviator, starring DiCaprio as Howard Hughes. The film was a critical and commercial success, and earned several Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture. Its following productions were released three years later—the comedy drama Gardener of Eden (2007) and the documentary The 11th Hour (2007). This was followed by the commercial successes of the psychological horror Orphan (2009), the psychological thriller Shutter Island (2010) and the dark fantasy film Red Riding Hood (2011). The company had three releases in 2013, including the crime thriller Runner Runner and the thriller film Out of the Furnace (2013), both of which performed poorly at the box-office. Appian Way released the biopic The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), a critical and commercial success, which was nominated for several Academy Awards, including Best Picture.
