Honored and thrilled to have received 12 nominations for the 2023 Promax Awards North America. Many thanks to our unstoppable team and our amazing creative partners, and congratulations to all of our fellow nominees!
Open Road’s branding and design division, PopClutch, last week rolled out a new hyper-energized main title sequence for HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, now in its 21st season.
With music performed by punk-pop band Green Day, the edgy motion graphics illustrate the types of thorny issues that the weekly news commentary show takes on.
Fun fact: Sharre Jacoby, who joined Open Road from Known to launch PopClutch, has worked on every iteration of Real Time’s main titles since the show launched in 2003.
"Netflix on Saturday unveiled the first trailer for Enola Holmes 2, the sequel to the streamer’s 2020 hit starring Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill. The footage was revealed at Netflix’s Tudum global fan event, with the film set to bow November 4."
"Master filmmakers and genre experts celebrate and dissect the most terrifying moments of the greatest horror films ever made."
"She Said follows the journalists who investigated and eventually broke the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations. The powerful trailer interweaves a rich narrative with a dramatic cue, building the story arc and highlighting the tension and urgency the characters face. She Said opens in theaters on Nov. 18."
"The trailer continues AMC’s trend of advertising the final episodes with cryptic black-and-white footage, leaving fans few images to grasp onto in their predictions of how the story will conclude. Fred Neil’s “Little Bit of Rain” sets the mood of a farewell.
“Let justice be done till the heavens fall,” Odenkirk’s Saul Goodman aka Jimmy McGill utters at the conclusion of the trailer."
"Sparks are flying in the new trailer for Persuasion, as a woman has to decide if she should let the past stay in the past or if she should rekindle an old romance. This new Netflix film is adapted from Jane Austen’s novel and stars Dakota Johnson and Cosmo Jarvis. Persuasion will be on Netflix on July 15."

Finalists for agency of the year are Buddha Jones, Mocean, Open Road, Roger, Sibling Rivalry and Zealot."
"Many of us dream of winning the lottery, but few get to experience the thrill of actually winning millions. Jerry Selbee, though, has found a loophole that could help him actually see the winning ticket. Based on a true story, Jerry Selbee uses his math skills and the help of his wife to try and win the lottery and save their small town in this film. Jerry & Marge Go Large will be streaming on Paramount+ on June 17."
