The $11 Billion Year

Staff Review: The $11 Billion Year

"The $11 Billion Year" by Anne Thompson

'The $11 Billion Year'  by  Anne Thompson

In 2013, Hollywood had its best year ever, profits totaling 11 billion dollars! Hollywood expert Anne Thompson provides an insider look at how all that money was made, taking the reader through a year-long trip through film sets, movie studios, executive backrooms,  PR firms, film festivals, etc. as stars, producers and assorted talent wheel-and-deal. Not all the flicks were mega-hits and Thompson reveals why certain films soared and others tanked. She also provides a revealing expose of how the old Hollywood system is undergoing great changes. Thompson's book is a fascinating and very entertaining look at Tinseltown in action.
