Traces the circulation in Britain of three Hollywood films - Basic Instinct, Bram Stoker's Dracula and Natural Born Killers - from marketing and critical reception to consumption. Draws on economic and discursive contexts and original audience research to trace how meanings, pleasures and uses are derived from popular film.

Combining detailed case studies with a clear and up-to-date overview of audience research and the political economy of contemporary cinema this will be essential reading for students of film, popular culture and the media.
