The first Hellboy movie by Guillermo del Toro had the same production company as the second, Revolution Studios -- they had just been distributed by different people (Sony and Universal, respectively). Then the reboot at Lionsgate was credited to the same producers as the other two, but at a completely different production company -- Millennium Films, which, when I looked it up on Wikipedia, it claimed fell defunct long before 2019.

How is all that possible? Also, when do the rights to Hellboy expire at Lionsgate?

    This is IMHO trivia, plus it is likely unanswerable anyway since we're not privy to the behind the scenes going-ons WRT how these projects came to be. Plus things like which company gets credited in what way is part of legalese and rules.
