Patrick Wachsberger talks franchises, highlights and Polanski

EXCLUSIVE: “We’re going through a sea change,” Lionsgate executive says of the film business today.

This Sunday, industry veteran and sales supremo Patrick Wachsberger, co-chairman, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, will be honoured at the Zurich Film Festival with the event’s Game Changer Award, which is bestowed on an individual who has been able to “successfully navigate through the aggressively changing entertainment landscape.”


“Then came Step Up – I had always wanted to do a dance movie – and Twilight…”

Few franchises have proven more transformative in the independent business than Twilight, which has grossed more than $3bn worldwide at the box office alone.

“Twilight was a game changer for everyone involved,” he admits.

It could have been very different, however.

“Robert Pattinson only came in three weeks before shoot,” says Wachsberger. “An assistant, who has subsequently become a very successful executive, said, ‘There’s this guy called Rob Pattinson from the fourth Harry Potter…’ I said, ‘Well, let’s fly him in from London’.

“He did his screentest and he got the job. I’m not going to tell you how little the salary was on the first one but of course lawyers were there to renegotiate deals following its success.”

Could we see another episode in the Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart behemoth?

“It’s a possibility,” he says. “Not a certainty but it’s a possibility. It’s about Stephenie [novelist Stephenie Meyer]. If she wants to tell a story related to those characters we’re here for her.”

I have got to say, in all the years that I've been going to conventions and events, I have never seen so many people there for one person. The lines for Alycia today were totally insane, I don't think there were that many people waiting to see Sarah Michelle Gellar back during the time when Buffy was huge. Total insanity.

That shows how important Lexa is for so many. Lexa meant a lot and Alycia’s portrayal was game changer. I’m glad that she filled out that con because that shows how much interest there is for her and hopefully she will only get bigger from here on.

The guest star who stole the show binches. No doubt about it.

Puis j'essaierai plus de te faire changer d'avis, parce qu'à tes yeux je suis une pute, et on ne sort pas avec des putes.

Je me rends compte que beaucoup de personnes ne connaissent pas autre chose que ce qu’elles ont connu en grandissant. J’ai la chance d’avoir découvert Tumblr pour ça, pour m’ouvrir aux autres.

Selon ce qu’on a vécu, on tend à classer les autres comme bons ou mauvais. Petit à petit, on finit par s’isoler et s’entourer uniquement du même genre de personnes. Si vous êtes entouré par un même genre de personnes, vous pouvez essayer de vous intégrer ou aller en voir d’autres qui ont les mêmes opinions. Je pense que la meilleure chose à faire dans ce là est de questionner ses propres opinions pour s’ouvrir aux autres.
De changer de paradigme.

Si on veut avoir de bons amis, on doit d’abord comprendre ce qui fait que certaines rencontres deviennent de belles amitiés. La qualité de la relation est définie par ce qui nous connecte. Si ce sont les cours, la relation va disparaître au fur et à mesure qu’on avance dans les études. Si ce sont les jeux vidéos, la relation va disparaître quand vous n’aurez plus autant de temps pour jouer.
Ce qu’on cherche dans une relation définit la solidité de cette relation. Une relation peut être encore plus durable quand ce qui nous connecte est encore plus fort. Avoir un but commun auquel on donne de la valeur et pour lequel on travaille est la plus forte connexion qui puisse lier deux personne.

Man, I can't even think what could be the game change in the end of 3x01. When I hear the words "game-changer", I'm thinking that it's villain or main plot related. If it's with WA, I really don't know what could be the big change.

I know! Okay, Flashpoint in itself is a huge game changer. But when he gets back, what will be that different? And I think that’s what it would be. He’ll get back and be like “thank god things are back to normal” and then someone will knock on the door or come into the room and say one thing and it’ll be like “dun dun DUUUUN!” Caitlin walks in with Ronnie or he walks in and finds out his dad is there or Iris walks in wearing a ring or he walks in and Joe is like “New number; who dis?”

Actually, if Joe has the most shocking line in the first episode, maybe it actually is that last one…

Parfois, je me dis que je n'ai pas le choix,
Qu'il faut vraiment que je me sorte de là,
Que je fasse quelque chose,
Je ne sais pas vraiment quoi,
Mais que je bouge de là,
Pour prendre une pause,
Quitter cet endroit chiant,
Changer de monde en un instant,
Créer le mien,
Partir au loin.

but then Topanga wouldn’t have made a big deal about it being spelled “Dewey” 😂😂 I like ur thinking tho, anon. What if THAT’S the game changer 🤔

On this day of November 6 2005, a bunch of unknowns in Hollywood premiered Episode 1 ( The Garden Party ) of an animated TV series that would become a game changer. It would spawn countless fans and wannabe clones alike for years but never duplicated. It showed an alternative to TV animation & simultaneously introduced high 2-D animation production quality for TV. Personally, it has been one of the most important projects of my career and introduced me to countless opportunities and colleagues. For that I am grateful. Happy 10yr Anniversary, Freeman Family!

Teen Instagram Star Breaks Down The Lies Her Photos Told

Instagram star Essena O'Neill decided to quit social media – at 18 years old. 

The teen Internet star, who amassed a following of over 750,000 people on Instagram and over 260,000 subscribers on YouTube, seemed like she was living the “perfect” life on Instagram. She posted photos of herself on the beach and in glamorous homes, wearing bikinis and tight dresses, not a hair out of place. 

“A 15-year-old girl that calorie restricts and excessively exercises is not goals.”
