  • 1. Producers Of Gangster Films
  • 2. The Godfather • Production company Paramount Pictures Alfran Productions • Distributed by Paramount Pictures • Budget $6.5 million, Box office $245–286 million Coppola and Paramount • Originally paramount believed Coppola would work within their small budget of $2.5 million; Coppola turned him down because he was put off by the novel, but with his American Zoetrope studio in debt and his personal financial position weak, he took the advice of family and friends and reversed himself.Paramount announced the signing of Coppola as director on September 28, 1970. • Paramount wanted the movie set in modern-day Kansas City and shot in their studio back lot to keep the budget down. Coppola preferred the 1940s, as in the novel. The popularity of the book eventually changed minds at the studio about the requests. they relented on a $6.5 million budget and approved period filming on location in New York and Sicily.
  • 3. Paramount pictures Paramount was founded in 1912, is the fifth oldest production company in the world and the oldest to still be based in Hollywood. Paramount do not tend to stick with just one genre of film, they have also produced films within the action/ superhero and comedy genre.
  • 4. Seven • Distributed by New Line Cinema • Budget $33 million, Box office$327,311,859 • The ending of the screenplay, with the head in the box, was originally part of an earlier draft that New Line had rejected, instead opting for an ending that involved more traditional elements of a detective thriller film with more action-oriented elements. But when New Line sent David Fincher the screenplay to review for his interest in the project, they accidentally sent him the original screenplay with the head-in-the-box ending.
  • 5. New Line Cinema • New Line Film Productions Inc., often called New Line Cinema, is an American studio. It was founded in 1967 by Robert Shaye and Michael Lynne. It became a subsidiary of Time Warner in 1996. In 2008 It was merged into the bigger studio Warner Bros.
  • 6. Sherlock Holmes: a game of shadows • Production company Village Roadshow Pictures Silver Pictures Wigram Productions • Distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures • Budget $125 million, Box office $545,448,418 • After the success of the 2009 film Sherlock Holmes, a sequel was fast-tracked by Warner Bros. with director Guy Ritchie dropping out of an adaptation of Lobo and Robert Downey, Jr. leaving Cowboys & Aliens.
  • 7. Village Roadshow Pictures • Village Roadshow Pictures is a leading Australian co-producer and co-financier of major Hollywood motion pictures, they have released over 70 films since they were established in 1997 , the ones they have co-produced with Warner Bros include, The Great Gatsby, The Matrix Trilogy, The Sherlock Holmes franchise, I Am Legend, the Ocean’s series, and The Lego Movie just to name a few. • After looking at the films they have produced I have noticed that almost all of them were co-produced or distributed by Warner Bros. They also work with some very well known actors.
  • 8. The departed • Production company Warner Bros. • Plan B Entertainment • Initial Entertainment Group • Vertigo Entertainment • Media Asia Films • Distributed by Warner Bros. • Budget $90 million, Box office $289,847,354 • In January 2003, Warner Bros., producer Brad Grey, and actor/producer Brad Pitt bought the rights to remake the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs (2002) from Media Asia for $1.75 million. William Monahan was secured as screenwriter, and later Martin Scorsese, who admired Monahan's Boston-set, Irish-Catholic gangster script, came on board as director.
  • 9. Warner Bros. • Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (commonly referred to as Warner Bros.) is an American producer of film, television, and music entertainment. It is one of the major film studios. it is a subsidiary of Time Warner, with its headquarters in Burbank, California and New York. Warner Bros. has several subsidiary companies, including Warner Bros. Pictures, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Home Video, New Line Cinema, Castle Rock Entertainment, and DC Entertainment. • Warner bros. Is widely regarded as one of the biggest producers and distributers of films in the gangster genre. They produced Goodfellas, which is one of most famous gangster film ever made. • Martin Scorsese directed Goofellas too. He has worked on many films with them suggesting that the gangster genre is dominated by Warner Bros.
  • 10. Conclusion • I noticed that most of these films had a rather high budget which makes me think that an authentic film opening might be quite hard to create as I do not have access to the same equipment that they did, however the godfather (which is possibly one of the biggest gangster films of all time) had a very low budget so I think it might be worth me going back and having a closer look at that film. • In my opening I think I will use New line cinema as they produced Seven which is the closest to the sort of thing that I want to create. It is also linked to Warner Bros. so it is part of a production company that is renowned for their films in the gangster genre.
