Prospectus

5,000,000 Common shares

LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT CORP.

This prospectus relates to an offering of an aggregate amount of 5,000,000 common shares of Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., a British Columbia company. We have been advised that, on November 10, 2015, Liberty Global Incorporated Limited, a limited company organized under the laws of the United Kingdom (Liberty), a wholly owned subsidiary of Liberty Global plc, agreed to purchase 5,000,000 of our common shares, and Discovery Lightning Investments Ltd., a limited company organized under the laws of the United Kingdom (Discovery), a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery Communications, Inc., agreed to purchase 5,000,000 of our common shares, in each case in privately negotiated transactions from certain of our existing shareholders. We understand that these purchases settled on November 12, 2015. We have further been advised that Liberty is entering into a variable prepaid forward transaction that has economic characteristics similar to a collar plus a loan with Bank of America, N.A. with respect to 2,500,000 of our common shares, and that Discovery is entering into a collar transaction with Bank of America, N.A. relating to 2,500,000 of our common shares. In this prospectus, we refer to Liberty and Discovery as the new investors, Bank of America, N.A. and its affiliates as the counterparty and the variable prepaid forward transaction and collar transaction being entered into by the new investors as the derivatives transactions.

We have been advised that the counterparty, in order to hedge its obligations under the derivatives transactions, will borrow 3,398,500 of our common shares (the underwritten shares) from third parties for sale in this offering. The underwriter has agreed to purchase the common shares from the counterparty at a price of $ per common share, which will result in $ of proceeds to the counterparty. The underwriter proposes to offer the underwritten shares in the underwritten offering from time to time for sale in one or more transactions on the New York Stock Exchange (the NYSE), in the over-the-counter market or in negotiated transactions, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale or at negotiated prices. See the section of this prospectus entitled Plan of distributionDerivatives transactions for a description of the derivatives transactions and the section of this prospectus entitled Principal shareholders for more information regarding the new investors.

This prospectus also relates to an additional 1,601,500 common shares, which we have been advised are also being borrowed by the counterparty from third parties. We have been advised that the counterparty or its affiliates or agents will sell these common shares, from time to time, pursuant to block sales, on the NYSE, in the over-the-counter market or in negotiated transactions, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale or at negotiated prices. These additional common shares will not be included in the underwritten public offering. We have been advised by the counterparty that it expects that, over the same period when the counterparty or its affiliates or such agents sell those common shares, the counterparty or its affiliates or such agents will purchase an approximately equal number of common shares in the open market. See the section of this prospectus entitled Plan of distribution.

We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of common shares in this offering by the counterparty.

Our common shares are listed on the NYSE under the symbol LGF. The closing price of the common shares as reported on the NYSE on November 11, 2015 was $40.69 per share.

Investing in our common shares involves risks. See Risk factors beginning on page 7 of this prospectus.

Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission nor any state securities commission has approved or disapproved of these securities or passed upon the adequacy or accuracy of this prospectus. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

The underwriter expects to deliver the underwritten shares against payment in New York, New York on or about , 2015.

The offering

Risk factors

An investment in our common shares involves certain risks. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the following risks and all of the other information included in this prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference herein. In particular, before deciding whether to invest in our common shares, you should carefully consider the risk factors and the discussion of risks contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2015, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended September 30, 2015 as well as the other information included or incorporated by reference in this prospectus. Our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected by any of these risks. The trading price of our common shares could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment. This prospectus also contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including the risks faced by us described below and elsewhere in this prospectus.

Risks related to this offering and our common shares

The market price of our common shares may decline after the offering.

The price per share of common shares sold in this offering may be more or less than the market price of our common shares on the date the offering is consummated. If the purchase price is greater than the market price at the time of sale, purchasers may experience an immediate decline in the market value of the common shares purchased in this offering. If the actual purchase price is less than the market price for the common shares, some purchasers in the offering may be inclined to immediately sell common shares to attempt to realize a profit. Any such sales, depending on the volume and timing, could cause the price of our common shares to decline. Additionally, because stock prices generally fluctuate over time, there is no assurance that purchasers of our common shares in the offering will be able to sell shares after the offering at a price that is equal to or greater than the actual purchase price. Purchasers should consider these possibilities in determining whether to purchase shares in the offering and the timing of any sales of common shares.

There may be future sales or other dilution of our equity, which may adversely affect the market price of our common shares.

We are not restricted from issuing additional common shares or preferred shares, subject to the underwriting agreement entered into with the underwriter in connection with this offering, including any securities that are convertible into or exchangeable for, or that represent the right to receive, common shares or preferred stock or any substantially similar securities. The market price of our common shares could decline as a result of sales of a large number of our common shares in the market after this offering, by us, the new investors or other of our shareholders, or the perception that such sales could occur.

Certain shareholders own a majority of our outstanding common shares and the new investors will continue to own a significant amount of our common shares.

As of November 11, 2015, based on the most recent information available to us, six of our shareholders beneficially owned an aggregate of 67,640,324 of our common shares, or approximately 45.5% of the outstanding shares, and one of these shareholders, Mark H. Rachesky, M.D., is the beneficial owner of approximately 20.4% of our outstanding common shares (assuming for such purposes that the sale of 10,000,000 of our common shares, or approximately 6.7% of the outstanding shares, by funds affiliated with MHR Fund Management to the new investors settled as of such date), and currently serves as the Chairman of our Board of Directors. Accordingly, these four shareholders, collectively, have the power to exercise substantial influence over us and on matters requiring approval by our shareholders, including the election of

directors, the approval of mergers and other significant corporate transactions. This concentration of ownership may make it more difficult for other shareholders to effect substantial changes in our company and may also have the effect of delaying, preventing or expediting, as the case may be, a change in control of our company.

We may be classified as a foreign investment company for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which could subject U.S. investors in our common shares to significant adverse U.S. federal income tax consequences.

A foreign corporation will be a passive foreign investment company for U.S. federal income tax purposes (a PFIC) in any taxable year in which, after taking into account the income and assets of the corporation and certain subsidiaries pursuant to applicable look-through rules, either (i) at least 75% of its gross income is passive income, or (ii) at least 50% of its assets produce or are held for the production of passive income. For this purpose, passive income generally includes dividends, interest, royalties and rents and certain other categories of income, subject to certain exceptions. We believe that we will not be a PFIC for the current taxable year and that we have not been a PFIC for prior taxable years, and we expect that we will not become a PFIC in the foreseeable future, although there can be no assurance in this regard. The determination of whether we are a PFIC is a fact-intensive determination that includes ascertaining the fair market value (or, in certain circumstances, tax basis) of all of our assets on a quarterly basis and the character of each item of income we earn. This determination is made annually and cannot be completed until the close of a taxable year. It depends upon the portion of our assets (including goodwill) and income characterized as passive under the PFIC rules. Accordingly, it is possible that we may become a PFIC due to changes in our income or asset composition or a decline in the market value of our equity. Because PFIC status is a fact-intensive determination, no assurance can be given that we are not, have not been, or will not become, classified as a PFIC.

If we were to be classified as a PFIC in any taxable year, U.S. Holders (as defined in Certain Income Tax ConsiderationsCertain U.S. Federal Income Tax Considerations) generally would be subject to special tax rules that could result in materially adverse U.S. federal income tax consequences. Further, prospective investors should assume that a qualified electing fund election, which, if made, could serve as an alternative to the general PFIC rules and could reduce any adverse consequences to U.S. Holders if we were to be classified as a PFIC, will not be available because we do not expect to provide U.S. Holders with the information needed to make such an election. A mark-to-market election may be available, however, if our common shares are regularly traded. For more information, see the section entitled Certain income tax considerationsCertain U.S. federal income tax considerationsPassive foreign investment company and consult your tax advisor concerning the U.S. federal income tax consequences of acquiring, owning or disposing of our common shares if we are or become classified as a PFIC.

The derivatives transactions, including the sales of our common shares by the counterparty or its affiliates to establish, modify or, in some cases, unwind the counterpartys hedge positions in connection with the derivatives transactions, may have a negative effect on the market price of our common shares.

We have been advised by the counterparty that the counterparty or its respective affiliates intend to establish the counterpartys initial hedge positions in respect of the derivatives transactions by establishing short positions in our common shares through an underwritten offering by the underwriter under this prospectus of 3,398,500 of the common shares that the counterparty has borrowed from third parties and sold to the underwriter. The establishment of such short positions could have the effect of decreasing, or limiting an increase in, the market price of our common shares. We have been advised that the counterparty or its affiliates expect to modify their hedge positions by buying or selling our common shares or engaging in derivatives or other transactions with respect to our common shares from time to time during the term of the derivatives transactions. The purchases and sales of our common shares or other hedging transactions by the

counterparty or its affiliates or agents to modify the counterpartys hedge positions from time to time during the term of the derivatives transactions may variously have a positive, negative or neutral impact on the market price of our common shares, depending on market conditions at such times.

We have also been advised that the terms of each of the derivatives transactions provide that each derivatives transaction will cash settle, without physical delivery of the underlying shares by the relevant new investor, unless the relevant new investor affirmatively elects otherwise. We have further been advised that each new investor has pledged the shares underlying its derivatives transaction to the counterparty to secure its obligations thereunder. We have been advised that upon the termination of any derivatives transaction (in whole or in part) or upon cash settlement of one or both of the derivatives transactions, the counterparty or its affiliates expect to purchase a number of our common shares in secondary market transactions to return common shares to securities lenders in order to unwind its hedge positions. Purchases of our common shares by the counterparty or its affiliates in connection with the termination of any derivatives transaction (in whole or in part) or cash settlement (or, in some cases, physical settlement) of any of the derivatives transactions, may have the effect of increasing, or limiting a decrease in, the market price of our common shares at the maturity of the relevant derivatives transaction. In addition, we have been advised that if Liberty elects to physically settle its derivatives transaction, depending on the market price of our common shares at the maturity of this transaction, its counterparty or its counterpartys affiliates may purchase or sell our common shares in secondary market transactions in order to manage its hedge positions. The purchases and sales of our common shares by the counterparty or its affiliates or agents to unwind the counterpartys hedge positions at the maturity of the relevant derivatives transactions may have a positive, negative or neutral impact on the market price of our common shares, depending on market conditions at such time.

The directional guidance we provide from time to time is subject to a number of factors that we may not be successful in achieving.

From time to time, the Company provides directional guidance for its then current three-year period, including the 2017 Directional Guidance provided in this prospectus. The Companys directional guidance depends on a number of factors that the Company may not be successful in achieving, including, but not limited to the timing and commercial success of the motion pictures and television programming that we distribute, which cannot be predicted with certainty. In particular, underperformance at the box office of one or more motion pictures in any period may cause our revenue and earnings results for that period (and potentially, subsequent periods) to...
