Filmmakers think they know what we want, but do they really? Do the executives sitting behind big, round tables in the executive offices of the major movie studios really have their finger on the pulse of the public? In fact, it’s questionable if even some of the creative talent, such as big name directors really understand what the people want. (Looking at you, Zack Snyder!) Is the film industry headed in the right direction? Well, we’re offering some free advice to Hollywood today. Cinelinx is listing 5 lessons that the people behind the cameras and desks need to know.
1…Big Blockbusters Are Becoming a Risky Proposition:
Movies are becoming more and more expensive to make. Some can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce. When you consider all the additional costs (like advertising) and the fact that studios don’t get all the money a movie makes at the theater, »

Paramount Pictures has promoted veteran executive Peter Giannascoli to the post of co-president of domestic marketing to lead creative marketing and advertising efforts.
The move comes a month after the studio tapped Google executive Rebecca Mall as co-president of domestic marketing and launched its first-ever brand strategy division and moved Steve Siskind out of the domestic marketing post and into home entertainment. Giannascoli will jointly run the department with Mall.
As part of the executive shuffle, Erik Counter is leaving his post as president of worldwide creative marketing.
Giannascoli will report to Paramount Vice Chairman Rob Moore and oversee all creative marketing efforts including creative content, digital creative and creative advertising. The research teams will also report into him.
“As a longtime member of the Paramount family, Peter is a gifted marketer and a well-respected veteran who has led numerous successful marketing campaigns for our studio,” said Paramount Pictures Chairman & CEO Brad Grey. »

Somehow, Mission: Impossible is one of those few series that gets better with each new entry. After the utterly humorless Mission: Impossible III, the series took a more lighthearted turn with Brad Bird's live-action debut, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. That trend continued in last year's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, which was directed by Jack Reacher director, Christopher McQuarrie.
Reception for Rogue Nation was universally praised by fans and critics alike, and Paramount Pictures seemed to take that as a hint that they should capitalize on its success by beginning production on the next film in the franchise as soon as humanly possible with the same director attached -- which is a series first. The film was set to begin production this fall, but now a report from Deadline seems to indicate that the next Mission: Impossible film may be facing its first obstacle.
According to the outlet, »

Emerging under the shadow of Paramount’s flagship action series Mission: Impossible, few would have predicted that Jack Reacher, a live-action adaptation that found Tom Cruise in the mighty shoes of the former major, would score $218 million at the worldwide box office with sound reviews to boot.
It may have lost director writer-director Christopher McQuarrie – snapped up by the Mission: Impossible franchise, incidentally – but Skydance is barrelling down on the release of Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, which welcomes series newcomer Cobie Smulders to the fray.
There, she’ll be rubbing shoulders with Cruise, Robert Catrini, Danika Yarosh, Aldis Hodge, Patrick Heusinger, Holt McCallany and Austin Hebert, and today’s action-packed international poster tees up that core action duo of Cruise and Smulders. What really has us excited for Never Go Back is that, in a bid to ensure the follow-up remains faithful to Lee Child’s novel series, the »

Occasioned by the release of his internet documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” this week, Werner Herzog made an appearance on Marc Maron’s “Wtf” podcast. The interview was typically insightful, strange and humorous in the way that only Herzog can be, with 10 ecstatic truths emerging as especially noteworthy:
The last thing he read was an obscure historian from Greek antiquity, because of course it was.
Herzog calls the saga he read as a “soap-opera story” about Alexander the Great’s father, though the historian in question is “a fairly unintelligent writer.”
Surprisingly, he rarely dreams.
The filmmaker says he dreams “maybe once in a year.” In the last dream he remembers, Herzog was being pursued in Mexico “by God knows what” and gets knocked down. A priest then came to pick him up, shook him and asked him, “Do you believe in the forces of evil? »

Since 1969, Werner Herzog has chased mirages in the Sahara desert, examined the plight of Nicaraguan child soldiers and documented the harrowing lives of Antarctica scientists. But in his new film Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World, the 73-year-old director tackles the most expansive project of his career: the Internet.
Told through a revolving series of profiles, Lo and Behold examines the history and future of the online world, dissecting everything from Internet addiction to hacktivist culture and self-driving cars. "Each one of them could have been a movie by itself, »
"Where do I get the feeling you're enjoying this?" Paramount recently debuted this new 60-second TV spot for Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, directed by Edward Zwick, bringing back Tom Cruise again to play the character created by author Lee Childs. He's joined by actress Cobie Smulders as Susan Turner, along with a cast including Robert Knepper, Aldis Hodge and Holt McCallany. The first full trailer for this sequel was quite promising, and this new TV spot rehashes some of that same footage with a few extra shots. They're selling this mostly with the angle of Reacher-is-a-badass like John Wick or Jason Bourne, who can take out anyone even though everyone underestimates him. Let's just hope the script is up to par. Fire it up. Here's the new extended TV spot for Edward Zwick's Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, from YouTube: You can still watch the first official trailer »

Back in June, Paramount debuted the first full trailer for the bone-crunching action sequel Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, arriving in theaters this October. With just over two months until this action sequel hits theaters, the studio has debuted a new TV spot and poster featuring Tom Cruise getting back in action. This former Military Police officer goes back to his roots, in what could be his deadliest mission ever.
The plot follows an Army major named Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders), who took over as a Military Police commander after Jack Reacher walked away from the armed forces. After Susan is accused of espionage, Jack springs back into action to help her, while dealing with his own personal issues. On top of all that, this Paramount sequel will have Jack being charged with a crime committed nearly 20 years ago, while revealing he may even have a daughter. Making things right »
Clip It: Each day, Jon Davis looks at the world of trailers, featurettes, and clips and puts it all in perspective. It's a topic that brings out a lot of anger at the dinner table. Things get heated. Families split apart. It's the worst when everyone gets together at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Is Tom Cruise too short to play Jack Reacher? The arguments are only going to get more intense now that there's a sequel. As has been harped on too many times by each and everyone you know, Jack Reacher is 6'5" in the books (written by Lee Childs). Tom Cruise is not considered tall by most people. Does that make him a poor choice for Jack Reacher? The answer is pretty obvious. Who would you rather have: Tom Cruise or not Tom Cruise? Tom Cruise, every time. (Full Disclosure: Tom Cruise and I are about the same height »
