What does it exactly mean that a company "presents" a movie? For example, for the movie, Inception (2010), while I suspect the production companies are two, Legendary Pictures and Syncopy - as per other sources such as wikipedia, I see that Warner Bro, which I thought would be the "Distributor" company, is listed at the top of the "Production companies" with the working "presents" on the IMDb Company Credits page. Even in the Submission Guide, it is stated that distribution companies should not be listed with production companies. I found this most confusing. Ultimately, a) what does it mean when a company on the production company list has the label, "presents", and b) "in association with"? Any thoughts on this would be super helpful...Thank you very much in advance.
