2014 Paramount Pictures preview!

Although Paramount finished in 7th place overall for 2013, they did so without any bombs, believe it or not. With a lower count of films to market, the studio was able to focus more attention on their release slate, which in turn seemed to benefit them, particularly with breakout hits like WORLD WAR Z, GI JOE: RETALIATION, BAD GRANDPA, and even HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS. 2014 has a similar "scaled back" slate, which includes a major toy robot franchise "sequelboot," a mythological god, another trip in a hot tub, a biblical epic, a found-footage time travel flick, a reboot of some heroes in a half shell, and their ace in the hole: Christopher Nolan.

Take a look at their full line-up and let us know which ones you're most looking forward to!
