Movie fans eagerly await each new edition of Screen World , the definitive record of the cinema since 1949. Volume 64 provides an illustrated listing of every significant American and foreign film released in the United States in 2012, documented with more than 1,000 black-and-white photographs. This new edition of Screen World highlights Ben Affleck's triumphant true-life drama, Argo , which managed to take home the Best Picture Oscar, even without Affleck receiving a directorial nomination; Daniel Day-Lewis's career-crowning performance as Lincoln , which made him the first three-time Best Actor Oscar-winner; Bradley Cooper and Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence in the effective Silver Linings Playbook ; Quentin Tarantino's incendiary and highly entertaining Django Unchained , featuring Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz; the rousing adaptation of the stage musical Les Miserables , with Anne Hathaway in her Oscar-winning role; the year's top box office sensation Marvel's The Avengers ; the final chapter of the Christan Bale Batman trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises ; Tim Burton's delightful, black and white stop-motion feature Frankenweenie ; Ang Lee's visually dazzling Life of Pi , set mostly on a lifeboat; and the 50th anniversary entry in the still potent James Bond saga, Skyfall . Screen World 's outstanding features include full-page photographs of the four Academy Award-winning actors as well as photos of all acting nominees; a look at the year's most promising new screen personalities; complete film information: cast and characters, credits, production company, date released, rating, capsule plot summary, and running time; and obituaries for 2012.

This is the last one in the series – no future editions will be published, alas. Volume 64 is the end of the series, per publisher. Reason given was too much internet competition, especially from IMDB.

VOLUME 64 AND STILL GOING STRONG!

Another Screen World! Barry Monush continues in the footsteps of Daniel Blum and John Willis in presenting another comprehensive photo and credit listing of just about every American and foreign film released in the U.S. during 2012. More than 1000 photos in the 450+ pages and still at a reasonable price. Good coverage of the Academy Awards; like it that the nominees get their due as well and I think for the first time, an extensive list of all the other awards. The usual features like Promising New Actors. Top Box Office Films and Obituaries are all there but the Biographical Data section that went missing a few years ago has not made a return. Still an essential reference annual for all film buffs.

SCREEN WORLD 64 IS TOPS

Barry Monush’s “Screen World 64: The Films of 2012” is a great addition to my library. It lists just about every motion picture released in the United States in 2012. It’s filled with lots of photos and movie credits. Listings for Academy Award winners. Box office records. Obituaries of film industry personnel who passed away in 2012. It’s a must have for any serious film lover. I have every edition of Screen World (1949 thru 2012) in my library. I’m looking forward to future editions.

Was an excellent series. I collected from the mid-60’s on. Publication dates were generally pretty unreliable, especially after the death of Monush. SCREEN WORLD R.I.P. (? – 2013).
