A thank-you from Paramount Pictures

On behalf of everyone at Paramount Pictures, I want to extend our heartfelt thanks for coming along to our 2019 Movie Convention Presentation. It was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the shared success of our films this past year and to launch our diverse slate for 2020.

We’ve been working to re-build our studio since 2017 with a mandate to provide audiences with quality content that is both cinematic and, most importantly, theatrical worthy. With this in mind, we were excited to share our 2020 films with you. Our best is still to come with 16 diverse titles set for release. From embracing family product, revisiting old favourites, to original content – we’re confident there is a film for everyone to be immersed in at the movies.

Let’s take another look at the incredible line-up that we have in store.


Family content has always been at the center of what we do, and 2020 is no exception.
