The Big Picture

ebook
A Los Angeles Times Bestseller
Winner of the Best Non-Fiction Book Prize at the 2018 National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Awards
"Ben Fritz crafts an electrifying and essential book that carefully chronicles how Hollywood tradition is collapsing and new models are fueling the future. A must-read."—Ava DuVernay, director of A Wrinkle in Time, Selma, and 13th
The stunning metamorphosis of twenty-first-century Hollywood and what lies ahead for the art and commerce of film

Ben Fritz chronicles the dramatic shakeup of America's film industry, bringing equal fluency to both the financial and entertainment aspects of Hollywood. He offers us an unprecedented look deep inside a Hollywood studio to explain why sophisticated movies for adults are an endangered species while franchises and super-heroes have come to dominate the cinematic landscape. And through interviews with dozens of key players at Disney, Marvel, Netflix, Amazon, Imax, and others, he reveals how the movie business is being reinvented.
Despite the destruction of the studios' traditional playbook, Fritz argues that these seismic shifts signal the dawn of a new heyday for film. The Big Picture shows the first glimmers of this new golden age through the eyes of the creative mavericks who are defining what entertainment will look like in the new era.
