The latest in Hollywood entertainment is almost always overwhelming. With relationships and scandals between the stars and a constant competition for the Red Carpet, it is no wonder this is one of the top grossing industries in the world. Many of these great Stars we know and love have passed, some are still very much alive, and others passed too young, but left fantastic musical contributions aside.
This year, in 2016, North America made well over $11 billion. Some of the finest in West LA Entertainment has been coming out. Amidst the death of Robin Williams, David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Alan Thicke, and many more, the entertainment industry is buzzing with new talent to pay homage to the greats. The movie industry ended up reeling in 11.3 billion.
The first top grossing movie of the year is “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The second is the animated musical “Sing” by Universal, and the Sci-Fi adventure “Passengers” came in at third. With so many good movies out, it is impossible to name them all, but these are the top three which brought in the most money per movie for 2016.
Even the music industry is part of the entertainment industry. Can you think of a movie without music? Many of the popular movies also have hits from posthumous Stars. Consider the music of George Michael. He was quite a pop idol in the ‘90’s also known from the band “WHAM” from that time. He went on to a rather creative career and his music can be heard directly or as covers by other artists in so many movies. He passed this year at the age of 53.
We have a Movie Star and Pop Idol oriented world and we love it to a huge extent. Sometimes we may not realize how powerful the influence is in our lives and on future generations.
