Box Office: The Collected U.S Box Office Reports 2004 - 2014Box Office: The Collected U.S Box Office Reports 2004 - 2014 by Lane Myer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you are interested in movies and the stories behind them, then this is a fascinating and informative read covering the major (and sometimes not so major) cinema releases of the past 10 years.

Every week, Lane Myer wrote a box office report detailing the week's releases and reporting on the top 10 movies in the US. As the years went by the reports got more and more detailed, some over 4,000 words long. The biggest franchises of the decade are analysed and Lane presents detailed background information about the making of the films. The Avengers, The Hobbit, the various Spiderman, Batman and Superman reboots are all here.

If you have any interest at all in how films are made and how they make money, then this is the book for you. As a collection of weekly columns, you can search for the films you're interested in and dip in and out as you please.

For the price, this is an absolute steal. And I'm not just saying that because I'm married to the author ;)
