About this book

Hollywood is facing unprecedented challenges – and is changing rapidly and radically as a result.
In this major new study of the contemporary film industry, leading film historian Tino Balio
explores the impact of the Internet, declining DVD sales and changing consumer spending habits
on the way Hollywood conducts its business. Today, the major studios play an insignificant role in
the bottom lines of their conglomerate parents and have fled to safety, relying on big-budget
tentpoles, franchises and family films to reach their target audiences. Comprehensive, compelling
and filled with engaging case studies (TimeWarner, DreamWorks SKG, Spider Man, The Lord of
the Rings
, IMAX, Netflix, Miramax, Sony Pictures Classics, Lionsgate and Sundance), Hollywood in
the New Millennium
is a must-read for all students of film studies, cinema studies, media studies,
communication studies, and radio and television.
