The Crackdown Brands & Their Agencies Should Fear

With influencer marketing on social media becoming increasingly popular over the last few years, it comes as no surprise that the practice would have to adapt to mainstream advertising regulations as it became more mainstream. As a result, the Federal Trade Commision (FTC), who regulates all things advertised to consumers, has recently clamped down on influencer marketing in order to make sure consumers are aware that it is indeed advertising - and as noticeable as other forms as marketing.

While some influencers and brand partners are open to hashtagging their posts, not everyone fully adheres to the guidelines. In this blog, Hollywood Branded delves into the recent action of the FTC regarding social influencers sponsored posts the legal requirements brands and agencies need to know.

The Future Of Streaming Services And Apple

With streaming services rising in popularity many content providers are making the move to on demand services in the hopes of competing with the big two of the streaming world, Netflix and Hulu. The two services already have much competition with Amazon Prime, YouTube Red, Disney’s newly announced on demand service and Sony’s free Crackle service.

If the success of Netflix is anything to go by, what draws users to the service most is unique original programming such as the successful series Orange is the New Black, Stranger Things and House of Cards. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how Apple is adding more original video content to its music streaming services to compete with streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix.

Theme Parks and Movie Studios

In an age where Disney and Universal dominate the theme park industry, it is no surprise that other movie studios may want to get in on the action. Although other studios have had failed attempts at trying to gain a presence in the market... another studio is making waves to try to earn some of that massive theme park following.

Lionsgate is the latest studio to dab its hand into the world of theme parks, having just announced the construction of a brand new theme park in South Korea. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the plans for Lionsgate theme park and how the amusement attraction will make for a perfect branding tool in film franchise synergy.

The Magic Of Franchise Film Hits

Many franchises from the past have recently returned to the big screen. Why? Because movie studios know they typically all but guarantee box office success. But not always, such as seen in in our post The Mummy: When A Franchise Launch Fails And The Future Of The Dark Universe.  

So the question is - can second, third or even fourth (or more) attempts revitalize the essence and most importantly success of the original?  The Planet of the Apes is one of the oldest film franchises in the world and yet it continues to find life - with a humongous established fan base in place. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the most recent incarnation of The Planet of the Apes franchise and the history of it's success.

The Mummy And Universal's Dark Universe

Over the past few years film franchises have exploded in the sense that they are becoming the true bread and butter of Hollywood. As a result, studios are each trying to develop their own franchises to compete with the massive franchises of other studios.

While it has a massive hit on its hands with the Jurassic World trilogy, Universal still doesn’t have a massive cinematic universe on the scale of something like Marvel's cinematic universe - or even Warner Bros. As a result, it has reached deep into its history in order to find one. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses Universal’s Dark Universe and what the first installment may mean for its future, and what happens when a franchise launch fails.

How One Movie Just Keeps Providing Brands A Major Partnership Option

It's common these days to find your favorite movie being crafted into hugely popular theme park attractions. However, you're not as likely to find theme park attractions being the source for blockbuster films as say, with The Country Bears, The Haunted Mansion and Tomorrowland having failed to get big bucks for Disney.  A rare example, however, was Pirates of the Caribbean which certainly has shone as a diamond in the rough for theme park rides turned movies.

It was through a stellar cast, unique concept and audience admiration that Pirates of the Caribbean became one of the most successful franchises of the century so far. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares the franchise film success case study of Pirates Of The Caribbean and why it has been so embraced by audiences - and brands - far and wide.

Never Ending Stories: The Cinematic Universe

There is no doubt that today’s cinema is filled with interconnecting stories and characters, often as a way for studios to lessen financial risk, as franchise films almost guarantee success. While franchise films have been in existence for decades, the "cinematic universe" of characters found in Marvel and DC Comics truly marks the evolution of the franchise film. 

The trend started with films like Ironman and The Avengers and has spread to SpidermanBatman, and Superman and beyond... where cameos of famous super villains and heroes making cameo and crossover appearances.  And the trend is only growing. In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses the history and potential of cinematic universes for product placement, and why it guarantees such a tuned-in and engaged audience.

The Emerald Isle Of Product Placement

While product placement may be a common feature of television and film here in the United States, it is interesting to note that product placement is not as prevalent in other countries with certain regulations in place. With St. Patrick’s Day just over it may be a bit of ‘craic’ (for those not familiar with the Irish lingo, that’s Irish for fun!) to take a deeper look at product placement in Ireland.

Product Placement is relatively new to Ireland, and was only introduced as recently as 2011. However it is becoming more and more normal a part of Irish television. In this blog,  Hollywood Branded provides the history and current marketing practice of how product placement in Ireland operates.
