Paramount Again Finds 2018 Box Office a ‘Quiet Place’ Despite Hits Like ‘Mission: Impossible’

Paramount Again Finds 2018 Box Office a ‘Quiet Place’ Despite Hits Like ‘Mission: Impossible’
Even with the massive success of John Krasinski’s “A Quiet Place” and the latest installment of Tom Cruise’s “Mission Impossible” series, Paramount had a mostly flat 2018 at the box office.

Though it crawled up a spot from 2017 to take sixth place in market share, pulling in just over $700 million in domestic box office to date, the Viacom-owned studio still lagged well ahead the five other majors and showed little sign it would reclaim the No. 1 spot it held as recently as 2011.

“It’s a year where they have to take stock and look forward to creating more franchises like ‘Mission: Impossible’ as well as working with filmmakers like John Krasinksi to come up with unexpected hits like ‘A Quiet Place’ that could be hugely profitable for the studio,” comScore senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian said.

The Us majors and other international producers who plan to shoot feature films in Australia will no longer have to negotiate fees for each production with local crews.

The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance has struck an in-principle deal with the six Hollywood studios for a template agreement covering crew working on features budgeted above $15 million.

Meaa members also voted to extend the template agreement to other offshore film producers.

Legendary Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong, which was lured to Queensland by the federal government’s Location Incentive Program, will probably be the first production to take advantage of the new agreement.

The four-year deal, which will run until June 30 2022, includes a guaranteed 2 per cent annual increase in minimum rates which will be separate from any margins negotiated for individuals. For those employed on a daily basis the minimum rate is

Benicio Del Toro Is Thieving Fox Villain Swiper in Dora the Explorer Movie
Benicio Del Toro is set to voice Swiper, the thieving fox, in Dora the Explorer. The actor just finalized his deal with the studio and he should begin work shortly. The casting is a late addition since filming recently wrapped in Australia, but since Swiper will be a CGI character, del Toro will do his voice work during the post-production process. Most voice work for CGI characters is done during the post-production period, so this is not out of the ordinary in the entertainment industry.

Isabela Moner stars as Dora, in a story that sees the character try and tackle her biggest mission yet: high school. The character has spent much of her life exploring the jungle with her parents, played by Michael Pena and Eva Longoria, who are trying to prepare her for high school. The movie sees Dora and Boots the monkey (her best friend) as well as

Showrunner Eric Newman and Star Michael Peña on Making ‘Narcos: Mexico’

  • Variety
“Narcos: Mexico,” the much anticipated fourth season of Netflix’s global hit show kicks off worldwide on the streaming giant by Nov. 16.

The key witness to this ascent is DEA agent Kiki Camarena, played by Michael Peña (“Ant-Man and the Wasp”), who moves his wife and son from Fresno, California to Guadalajara to assume a new post. Here, he goes up against the astute drug lord Felix Gallardo, played by Diego Luna (“Rogue One”), who has united a once-disorganized group of independent marijuana growers and dealers to form the infamous cartel.

Latino Group Nhla Joins Call for Greater Diversity at Paramount

The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda is joining a campaign calling for Paramount to improve its record of Latino inclusion.

In an open letter Tuesday, Nhla called on Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos to work with the National Hispanic Media Coalition and the National Latino Media Council to address what it says is “Paramount’s status as the worst-performing movie studio with respect to Latino inclusion.”
