A product FROM or BY a certain company?

I have always thought, apparently quite incorrectly, that the preposition BY is used in such cases. But now I have come across a film poster, clipped here:

which has shaken my belief :-)

Could I ask you to shed light on this petty grammar trouble?

Many thanks

Normally 'from'.

'By' generally for works of art, music, literature, etc.
