Paramount celebrates 100 years of magical moments

 

 

 

Paramount is now 100. I’m Realistic Fish Head. From Adolph Zuckor to Tom Lesinski, the biggest movie studio in the world has gotten through every historical event in history from the great depression to the digital age. While Paramount is bring back all of its classics nationwide from California to Texas teaming up with Delta Vacations for its anniversary contest from every classic that had it based on every movie originally made on location all across the globe.

During the 1980’s, 1990’s, and through the millennium, Paramount had shattered all box office records against other major movie companies. And with The Avengers added to that list, there’s a sequel coming soon! Angie Angelfish on this breaking news story. Are the greatest superheroes ready for an encore?

 

Angie Angelfish (via Dateline Hollywood): This won’t come as a surprise to anyone who sat through the credits of The Avengers, or who simply looked at the film’s record-breaking box office sales this past weekend. Still, fans (and investors) will be glad to hear that Disney CEO Bob Iger just announced that the company is developing a sequel. The film’s success “is a great illustration of why we like Marvel so much.” Demand for Avengers merchandise has been strong, he added.

 

As for other classics such as toon movies, Paramount joined forces with Viacom to bring out some of the biggest and the brightest stars. And to bring it all together, Nickelodeon Movies was there completing a triangle of classic and current Nicktoon hits such as The Rug rats, The Wild Thorn berries, Hey Arnold,  Jimmy Neutron, The Fairly Odd Parents, and SpongeBob.

In 2006, DreamWorks came to Paramount with their best hit movies of their own compiled of Shrek, Monsters vs. Aliens, Mega Mind, Kung Fu Panda, and the Madagascar movies.

Today the mountain’s majestic history relies on their  own greatest franchise such as Star Trek, GI Joe, and Transformers which were turned from TV hits into action packed movies thanks to them and Hasbro.

From action, suspense, danger, comedy, and drama and even animation, Paramount has used technology for all their movies that were all shot on location whether based on current events or true stories. Some locations which include China, Budapest, Paris, and yes, even in the city of Bikini Bottom have made what Paramount is today. And their history proves it:

The only major motion picture studio based in Hollywood, Paramount is located on an expansive 64-acre state-of-the-art production and business center.    During its nearly 100-year history, the studio’s backlot has served as the production site for thousands of notable feature films, television shows and commercials.  Paramount’s facilities include thirty sound stages, a newly constructed “Chicago Street,” as well as the historic and popular “New York Street,” which features ten distinct city neighborhood backdrops.

Paramount Pictures is also the creative home to some of the most respected and talented filmmakers and producers in the business including J.J. Abrams, Brad Pitt and Martin Scorsese, Paramount has distributed a host of critically acclaimed and box office hits over the last several years including CLOVERFIELD, TRANSFORMERS, INDIANA JONES & THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL, NORBIT, BLADES OF GLORY and  DISTURBIA, to name a few.

The company’s legendary library consists of more than 1,000 motion picture titles, some television programming, and varying rights for approximately 2,500 additional motion picture titles.  Paramount boasts numerous Oscar® winning films including 2007’s NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN (co-produced with Miramax Films), 2006’s groundbreaking documentary featuring Vice President Al Gore, AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH, the moving historical drama BRAVEHEART directed by Mel Gibson in 1995, the worldwide sensation starring Tom Hanks, FORREST GUMP (1994) and the highest-grossing motion picture of all time, TITANIC (1997), as well as enduring classics such as BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY’S (1961), THE TEN COMMANDMENTS (1956) and SUNSET BOULEVARD (1950), among others.  Paramount Pictures holds the distinction of winning the very first Best Picture Oscar which was awarded to WINGS in 1927.

In addition, several of the most successful franchises in film history, including MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE, STAR TREK, THE GODFATHER, and INDIANA JONES, are part of the Paramount Pictures library.

There is much more to come.
