Anne Thompson (her name is spelled correctly, and she has never suggested we are related) has for several years run one of the liveliest movie websites done with characteristic flair and aplomb. I am amazed by her cheerfulness, but I love hearing her give voice to it.--David Thomson, author of The Biographical Dictionary of Film and Moments that Made the Movies I loved it! The $11 Billion Year is both a wonderful read and an informative one. Not always the same. Anyone who is interested in movies, business, or American culture should read this book. You could make a movie about this book about making (and marketing) movies!--David Black, award-winning film & TV screenwriter and author of An Invisible Life and Like Father Mixing behind-the-scenes stories about the making of the most notable films of 2012 with keen observations about the changing nature of the business, Thompson has crafted a page-turning look at the moviemaking industry that is bound to appeal to film buffs.--Booklist Nobody reports on the movie business with greater savvy or a sharper eye than Anne Thompson. In this valuable book she explores an entire year's worth of events, clarifying the Big Picture while revealing insider details along the way. What a juicy read!--Leonard Maltin, author of Leonard Maltin's 151 Best Movies You've Never Seen The $11 Billion Year combines insight, intelligence, and irony. Whether Anne Thompson explains the growing importance of film festivals like Telluride, or dissects how a marketing strategy worked, she gives us '2012: A Movie Odyssey.'--Annette Insdorf, Director of Undergraduate Film Studies, Columbia University The $11 Billion Year makes you feel like a Hollywood insider. No matter how much you think you know about the movie industry, you'll learn more from Anne Thompson. She lives and breathes the business.--Nora Rawlinson, co-founder and editor Early World, former editor of Library Journal and editor-in-chief of Publishers Weekly Ace Hollywood analyst Anne Thompson not only knows where the bodies are buried--she digs them up for you!--Peter Rainer, author, Rainer on Film: Thirty Years of Film Writing in a Turbulent and Transformative Era An in-depth analysis of the changing business of filmmaking . . . Thompson also provides personally gleaned insights from the directors and stars of the major 2012 vehicles. Why didn't the prestigious "Lincoln" win Best Picture? Read and learn.--New York Daily News
