George tops Forbes Hollywood list. George Lucas is the top earner on the business mag’s brand new list of Hollywood’s highest-paid men. (Wait, men? I guess Oprah isn’t ‘Hollywood.’) Coming up second is Steven Spielberg, and Harrison Ford shows up at #11.
Number games Because Harry Potter could soon beat Star Wars as the best-grossing movie franchise in the U.S. And yeah, while it didn’t beat Transformers 2’s opening weekend, Half-Blood Prince hasn’t done too shabby. (Would J.K. Rowling count as ‘Hollywood,’ Forbes?)
Flashback. Geoff Boucher digs up an old photo from the 70’s.
Other franchies… Warwick Davis talks a bit about a sequel to Willow with MTV. (We also learn that I am not the only person who hated the sequel books!)

The Women’s Issue was the previous one. Oprah topped that one. I think Jo was fairly high up there.
And I weep for our society when a crappy movie like Transformers 2 outperforms Harry. Of course, it was probably the bad taste of Transformers that made people not feel like watching another movie.
The women are ‘influential,’ not highly paid. Sigh.
