A fun behind-the-scenes look at modern movie making,
This review is from: The Men Who Would be King: An Almost Epic Tale of Moguls, Movies, and a Company Called DreamWorks (Hardcover)
I was originally looking for a book about Dreamworks animation and then came across this one. What a great read. Lots of fun to read about the behind the scenes of so many well known movies (Gladiator, American beauty, Shrek to name a few) and not just the dreamworks animated ones. If you have any interest in the production and business side of movies then this is a must buy. It's a shame none of the 'three kings' would provide an interview for this book but all of them are so successful why would they? There's also some great insights into what goes into marketing a movie for the Oscars. Be prepared for lots of big money deals, bulging egos and laugh out loud quotes. Thanks Nicole!
