New Regency Pictures

Production | Distributor

Regency Enterprises (commonly referred to as Regency onscreen) is an American entertainment company formed by Arnon Milchan. It was founded in 1982 as Embassy International Pictures[citation needed], but the company name changed to not be confused with Norman Lear's Embassy Pictures (known from 1975 to 1982 as Avco Embassy Pictures).

New Regency Productions is a production company founded in 1991 by Arnon Milchan and a subsidiary of Regency Enterprises. It is located on the 20th Century Fox lot. New Regency primarily produces movies, and has at least 100 movies to its credit. New Regency produced 2013's 12 Years a Slave, 2014's Birdman, and 2015's The Revenant, which earned the company two Academy Awards for Best Picture in a row, and three nominations.

In September 1997, Milchan signed a 15-year distribution pact with 20th Century Fox worldwide in all media outside of foreign TV rights, ending a previous association with Warner Bros. (1982–1999) Fox's parent company News Corporation (now 21st Century Fox) funneled $200 million in New Regency, in exchange for a 20 percent stake in the company. In 2011, Fox and New Regency extended the pact, to expire in 2022.
