Viacom: Paramount Hoping 'Transformers' And 'Ninja Turtles' Summer Success Helps Carries It Into The Fall
The Entertainment Oracle • Tue, Sep. 16
- Paramount was one of the few studios to see success during this year's under-performing summer season.
- The success of 'Transformers' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' sets the studio up to have two tentpole franchises for many years to come.
- Paramount's summer success also has a cross-company impact as 'Ninja Turtles' is a big priority for Nickelodeon which is also a subsidiary of parent company Time Warner.
- The studio's fall slate is just as slim as its summer one but has the potential to play big in the annual award season race thanks to 'Interstellar' and 'Selma.'.
