To celebrate, the lion got his paw print cemented at the TCL Chinese Theatre, according to a Jan. 22 press release email, and the studio has also unveiled a new trailer showcasing some of the greatest scenes from some of the greatest movies it has released.

This new trailer, which can be viewed in full at the top of this column, will play in theaters nationwide; on various MGM channels; and on DVDs and social media.

Chairman and CEO Gary Barber had this to say about the studio and its legendary status:

“What a supreme honor it is to preside over a company with such an unparalleled legacy. It’s remarkable to have this opportunity to reflect on MGM’s amazing achievements in film history while also looking ahead to MGM’s bright and promising future.”

Movie lovers can also check out a new Tumblr page, which has various quotes and images from movies like “The Silence of the Lambs”; “Thelma & Louise”; and many others.
