Gregory Taylor English 1213 3A 1. Bart, Peter. The Gross: The Hits, the Flops-the Summer That Ate Hollywood . New York: St. Martin’s Press, 1999. Print. Bart’s book describes the summer of 1998 with regards to the film industry’s movie releases. Within that summer, such movies released (such as Armageddon by Michael Bay) revolutionized the way that movies are created, distributed, and marketed.
