Hollywood reports boom times

You know how Hollywood is being mercilessly savaged by evil file sharers?

How helpless movie industry support workers are being thrown onto the streets?

And how the quality of releases is suffering because illegal downloads mean the studios can no longer afford the kind of development it needs?

Hold that thought.

And while you do, “Hollywood finished the year with a record $10.61 billion in ticket sales, up 8 percent from 2008,” says IMDb, going on >>>

Admissions were up 4 percent to 1.41 billion but failed to break the record set in 2002 when 1.60 billion tickets were sold. The top-grossing movie of the year was Paramount’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen with $402.1 million. However, that figure is almost certain to be eclipsed by Fox’s Avatar, which has already earned $352.1 million.

Warner Bros. was the top-earner with $2.13 billion, Paramount came second with $1.46 billion, followed by Fox with $1.45 billion, Sony with $1.44 billion, and Disney with $1.21 billion.

These “solid” results were delivered, “despite labor unrest within the film industry, turmoil at the executive level of many studios, wholesale firings at lower levels, depressed media stock prices, and cutbacks in overall production — not to mention the general effect of the worldwide economic downturn,” adds IMDb.

But what else is new? It’s the same thing every year.

Hollywood’s mouthpiece outfit, the MPAA, issues puff piece after puff piece saying how desperate things are. And then we learn they’ve never been better.
