The Official Making of Big Trouble in Little China by Tara Bennett and Paul Terry, available now, is a must-read for cult movie fans. It's packed with on-set photos and interviews with just about everyone who was involved in the making of John Carpenter's cult classic -- and it's filled with trivia about the making of the movie.
