Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot Productions are extending their exclusive first-look agreement through the end of 2015.  Why wouldn't they? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

J.J. Abrams's Bad Robot has had a first look with Paramount since 2006, and the writer-director's career has blossomed under the arrangement, from two "Mission Impossible" films ("Ghost Protocol" has grossed $669 million worldwide to date) to 2009's "Star Trek" reboot with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto ($389 million worldwide)and its in-the-works sequel, not to mention last year's Spielberg homage, "Super 8" ($259 million worldwide).

Abrams' next "Star Trek" movie is set to be released in 3-D in May 2013--Quinto has already started shaving his brows.  As today's deal demonstrates, Paramount treasures Abrams, who was the creative mind behind the massively popular TV shows "Alias" and "Lost," and has proven to have a similar knack for crowd-pleasing on the big screen, delivering blockbuster effects paired with clever dialogue and smart, sci-fi nerdism.
