If one wants a prime example of a production company that’s doing things right in the world of cinema, one doesn’t need to look further than Megan Ellison and her Annapurna Pictures. After releasing their first feature in 2012, they’ve quickly established themselves as the go-to outfit for quality dramas that sway to the adult demographic.

While we expect that film to land in the fall, one can see the “Hustle Reel” below, also including Her and David O. Russell‘s film, as well as Django Django‘s Firewater.
