Bazelevs Productions (or Bazelevs Company; Russian: Базелевс) is a Russian production company, named after the Greek title for monarch and rulers of ancient Athens, Macedonia and Sparta: Basileus (Βασιλεύς).

The company was founded by Russo-Kazakh director Timur Bekmambetov. The company has been producing films such as The Irony of Fate 2, Night Watch, Day Watch, Wanted, Black Lightning, Lucky Trouble, The Darkest Hour, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Hardcore Henry and Ben-Hur remake.

The company was involved in producing the animated film 9, which was nominated for Best Animated Film in 2010 at the Producers Guild of America Awards 2009.

In winter of 2010–2011, the film Yolki was the top among other Russian films at the box office over the past three years. In February 2011, the film Lucky Trouble won the main audience award – "Golden Taiga" which debuted at the festival in Khanty-Mansiysk.

In the summer of 2010 in Moscow, they filmed the Russo-American project The Darkest Hour, in cooperation with 20th Century Fox, New Regency and Summit Entertainment, with Bekmambetov as a producer.

In 2015, the company have since released films in a new genre titled "Screenlife" which each film is shot in the point-of-view of computer screens and smartphones. The first couple films released in that genre are Unfriended, Unfriended: Dark Web, Searching and Profile.
