Most of you probably have seen images of this cover from Time Magazine, July 15th 1985 somewhere.
But have any of you ever read the accompanying article ?
In 1984 Steven, Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall founded Amblin Entertainment
(even though the first film released as an Amblin-production,
had been released as far back as 1981)
In 1985, only 1 year after it's founding, Amblin celebrated a glorious year,
with cinematic releases like Fandango, The Goonies, Back to the Future,
Young Sherlock Holmes and the Pyramid of Fear and Spielberg's own The Color Purple.
But Amblin also started to invade the smaller TV-screen in August of that year,
with the start of Amazing Stories on NBC.
The sky seemed to be the limit.
With the founding of the DreamWorks Studio, Amblin Entertainment became less and less prominently active.
Animators that had been working for the Amblimation department went on working for the DreamWorks Animation department and Amblin only seemed to exist as a co-founding partner.
Thankfully a few years ago Steven decided to (re)start Amblin again as an active production house.
He started using it as a production facility for new TV-shows, resulting in such different series as The River, Under the Dome, Red Band Society, Falling Skies,
The Borgias, Terra Nova, The Americans and Extant.
However, the motion picture department is gearing up again too, with all eyes aimed at June, when the dinosaurs in Jurassic World are going for global domination, once more.
