ENDURANCE is the name of the ship Ernest Shackleton sailed to Antarctica on the greatest of his adventures. We chose the name for our company for two reasons. First, his epic tale is a model for the kind of stories we want to tell. Second, the Endurance journey embodies the strong values and high standards of our company. We are built to withstand adversity and thrive on complexity—a solid, stable feature film production and finance company—which can navigate difficult waters for our filmmaker partners in order to achieve mutually beneficial goals.
ENDURANCE MEDIA has quickly become a hub for top-tier filmmakers wanting to bring compelling action-adventure stories to life. Endurance recently wrapped production on THE KILLER’S GAME starring Dave Bautista, Sofia Boutella, Terry Crews, Pom Klementieff, and Ben Kingsley, which will hit theaters in 2024. Endurance is slated to commence principal photography on a number of exciting projects, including AFTERBURN, THE RIKER’S GHOST and THE LAST BATTLE.
