I know I’m a franchise quarterback.

We give great value for our franchisees: They can build a store for well under $200,000. And we have extremely simple operating systems. The preparation is mostly done in front of the customer. That simplicity is really what attracts our Subway franchise. You see it, and you can do it.

I think that the difference between ‘The Sopranos’ and the shows that came before it was that it was really personal.

I’m way more worried on my future well-being, and my kids, and my family, where we are going to live and what we are going to do, than what is going to happen with the Spurs. With all due respect, of course. I love the franchise, and I’m probably going to be attached in some way.

If ‘Star Wars’ wasn’t enough to prepare me for a dark future, there was the ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchise, conveniently repeated for me in Los Angeles on KABC’s Channel Seven 3:30 movie.

I think I’m a face of a franchise. I can make an impact.

I’m a massive fan of the ‘Bourne’ franchise, and I think Damon’s brilliant in it, and I love the films. I’m really into it.

Michel Gondry’s ‘Green Hornet’ was another franchise flick that felt like it came out of left field – I thought in a good way, but most audiences disagreed.
I have to just come to work every single day. That’s not just on the field but off the field, because you have little kids looking up to you; your face is the face of this franchise and this university. You have to understand that every decision that you make is going to be criticized.
I don’t put the pressure on everybody else. I put the pressure on myself because I am that franchise guy. I am the guy that has to be the leader of the team, that has to get everybody better, make everybody better on my team.
It’s quite obvious that the ‘Dark Souls’ franchise is reaching a turning point, and I’m happy that I have a greater budget for the third game, as well as the creative freedom to make my own decisions.

There is a natural progression to ‘Lost,’ and as the story goes forward, it’s going to change. It’s not a static story. The franchise of ‘Lost’ is not characters sitting on a beach.

It took me a while to understand the meaning of a franchise: the reasons why you see lawyer, doctor, cop shows. It’s not because anyone in their right mind says, ‘You know, what’s the most fascinating thing in the world?’ It’s because you need something new that happens every week in a frame.

The themes, ideas and the characters from ‘Skyfall’ can obviously continue on, because it is a franchise, and it is an ongoing story.
Persistence is half the battle. That’s what I love about independent movies. They don’t have to be made. There’s no studio with an agenda to set up a franchise like ‘Batman’ or to make a vehicle for a celebrity actor. My films are made because I love the process.
Kobe is part of the Laker family and he always will be. There’s not many players who play 18-19 years with the same franchise, and it’s important to us that he has a chance to play his entire career with the Lakers.
Well, that’s the question we have to answer as coaches. Is our franchise quarterback here? Is he on the roster? Is he being developed, or is he somewhere else?
It’s really wonderful that it’s the whole franchise being recognized and it’s a collective award. Each film has anywhere between 2,000 and 6,000 people working on it and so really the award is for each and every one of us. We are like a family.
What’s great about ‘Spy Hunter’ is that we have an amazing title, an awesome car, and a great theme song, and we can use that to launch a new franchise that hopefully will compete with the other ones but just be kind of the more fun, video game version of a spy movie.
My construction business represents 10 or 20 times what I’ll ever invest in football. But from the moment I bought the Chargers, I would become forever known as the owner of that NFL franchise.
Everything I’ve tried to do at Laika, searching for an artful blend of darkness and light, intensity and warmth, humour and heart, I wanted to bring to the Transformers franchise.
It’s crazy when you think about the ‘Apes’ franchise and how dark all of the endings are and how dark the movies are, and yet there’s something very pleasurable about these movies. It really comes down to the potency of this idea, of seeing intelligent apes.
I did not acquire the franchise merely so people could experience ‘Duke Nukem Forever.’ That was, sort of, the toll to pay to give ‘Duke Nukem’ a chance at a future.
The making of the Barack Obama franchise far exceeded the skill set of Washington’s best. In fact, the recipe for Mr. Obama’s global popularity can be attributed less to political minds and chance than to the enduring power of Hollywood.
‘Fast and Furious’ is the only franchise that I’ve directed that I did not create from scratch. So it definitely was an eye-opening experience for me coming to that world. I had to be respectful of the roles that had been established by the filmmakers before me, and I was cool with that.
I’ve often found, as I did with ‘Bourne,’ where I was inspired by the events of Iran-Contra when I designed the CIA for the ‘Bourne’ franchise, that the reality of how things work is usually more compelling than the superficial, made-up version that Hollywood sometimes does.
WolfCop’ is such a great IP, and such a great franchise, that I wouldn’t be surprised if it keeps going on and on. I would love to be involved.
I think the face of the franchise is kind of how you take it. I know that’s been said about me, and that’s been said about me at Penn State. But, I think it’s kind of how you view it. I really never viewed myself as that. If that comes along with the things that I’m doing, then so be it.
Every franchise of both leagues will remain in its present location.
I knew very little about ‘Spider-Man’. I grew up more in the ‘Superman’ generation. ‘Spider-Man’ – I didn’t know so much. But it is a really successful franchise, and I’m happy to be involved with it.
A franchise player, to me, is a guy like Kirby Puckett, Cal Ripken, a guy who’s been in one organization through their entire career.
There have been discussions of doing ‘The Demon Cycle’ on both large and small screen scale, and while there is no project currently in development, I think the series has both the big imagery and complex character development to have legs either as a TV series or film franchise.
I think the fans from the original ‘Teen Wolf’ tuned in expecting us to ruin the franchise, and I think that we’ve only heightened it. So we’ve brought ‘Teen Wolf’ back.
I love the idea of coming into a struggling franchise and seeing if I can help them win. First off, I hate to lose. At anything. Secondly, who doesn’t want to be the guy to help turn something around?
‘Housefull’ was an enjoyable film, and I thought it would be nice to be part of the franchise.
You don’t want to get to the point where you play out your contract and you get to those complicated situations where they can put the franchise tag on you and things like that.
I mean the first thing you think about when you hear the Cowboys is that star, ‘America’s Team,’ and all of that. It’s a great franchise.
When you inherit a franchise that won one playoff game in the last 10 years, you’ve inherited a troubled franchise.
We all know that Ray Kroc founded the McDonald’s franchise back in the 1950s, and it then became the most successful business enterprise in history.
I had admired the way the producers of the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise had found David Yates, who ended up doing their four final movies, and he’d come from television.
The Madden NFL franchise holds a special place in popular culture and the cover is a coveted position for players all over the league. I’m honored to be the first cover athlete chosen by Madden NFL fans and it’s a great way to cap off an amazing year for the Saints and the city of New Orleans.
It’s a hugely popular franchise, and every ‘Housefull’ film has worked well at the box office.
You can’t go looking for another one of those franchises. You only ever get one of those. You get ‘Stars Wars’; you get ‘Indiana Jones’ or get ‘The Matrix.’ I’ve had my franchise.
I grew up with a little brother, and we would always watch ‘Transformers’ together, and he had all the toys. So I was really thrilled and honored to be a part of this franchise.
Never sell, never franchise.
The original ‘CSI’ grew stronger once the spinoffs became entrenched. Like any good franchise, when there’s a great story to be told, viewers can’t get enough.
Prior to doing a ‘Bond’ film, I was a young actor doing classical theater and some BBC dramas. Then, suddenly, I was thrown into this franchise. I had never experienced anything like it.
