    The 26-year-old daughter of Silicon Valley billionaire Larry Ellison quickly has become Hollywood's go-to film financier for tasteful projects. Annapurna likely has spent as much as $100 million on various films including four 2012 titles -- Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master, John Hillcoat's Lawless, Brad Pitt mob movie Killing Them Softly, which opened in theaters Nov. 30, and Kathryn Bigelow's much-anticipated Zero Dark Thirty, which bows Dec. 19. (The Master, costing a reported $35 million, underperformed at the box office, grossing $17.2 million.)
