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.
