Vin Diesel Is The Highest Grossing Actor Of 2017

Published

on

Vin Diesel is the king of the boxoffice at least for now. Diesel managed to beat out the Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot for the highest grossing actor in 2017.

Diesel topped the list thanks to The Fate of The Furious, which was the second highest grossing film of 2017. The film earned over $1.2 billion dollars at the boxoffice, falling behind Disney’s Beauty and The Beast which brought in $1.3 billion dollars. XXX: The return of Xander Cage brought in $346.1 million worldwide helped to seal the title for Vin Diesel. But the list does not account for voice-over work which would have given him a large lead since he does the voice for Groot in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Guardians went on to earn $863 million with Vol. 2.

Dwayne Johnson came in second but will eventually take over the No. 1 slot when the numbers for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle are totaled. The sequel earned over $100 million dollars during its opening weekend and is trending upwards. The big screen remake of Baywatch did little nudge Johnson ahead since the film only earned $177 million during its theatrical run.

Top-Grossing Actors of 2017

1. Vin Diesel ($1.6 billion)

2. Dwayne Johnson ($1.5 billion)

3. Gal Gadot ($1.4 billion}

4. Emma Watson ($1.3 billion)

5. Johnny Depp ($1.1 billion)

6. Daisy Ridley ($1.08 billion)

7. Tom Holland ($888 million)

8. Chris Pratt ($864 million)

9. Chris Hemsworth ($845 million)

10. John Boyega ($815 million)

Nova Could Be Making His Way To The MCU

Published

on

Marvel’s Phase 4 is on a lot of fans minds. The MCU is expanding but Marvel is keeping their plans locked up.  Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige sat down with ComicBook.com this weekend and revealed that Nova maybe one of new heroes fans will get to see on the big screen.

“Nova is—if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,” he said. “Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy].”

Feige didn’t get specific about the timetable of a Nova appearance and admitted that they’re having difficulty choosing which of the many characters to highlight next. “We’re figuring those things out,” he explained. “It is a very unique embarrassment of riches right now because there are so many of the characters that audiences are clamoring to see more. The question is how do we show them all?”

Joaquin Phoenix Breaks Down His Thoughts On The Joker Role

Published

on

Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly gearing up to play The Joker in a new origin story for Warner Bros. Heath Ledger’s classic performance as the Joker in Christopher Nolans Dark Knight brought the character to a new height in popularity.
Phoenix was recently asked his thoughts on following Ledger’s performance.

“I don’t know about that movie or character specifically, but I was thinking about it’s interesting with comics there’s different writers and artists that come on. It’s different than this character from literature being uniquely that. There are different interpretations. It’s so interesting; I was just thinking about it today, it seems so unique in some ways to comic books. I think there’s probably room for that. Maybe it’s like doing a play, like you always hear about people doing something, ‘You should have seen this actor in this performance,’ but then other actors do it and it’s a different kind of film. I think that genre, comic books, kind of lends itself to having different people play the same character and interpret it in a different way. It’s kind of built into the source material in some ways. I think it’s cool when people do that.”

The Best Things About The Deadpool 2 Final Trailer

Published

on

Deadpool 2’s so-called final trailer has everything fans could want: Confirmation of a few new X-Men characters, plenty of Cable and Deadpool cross chatter and, of course, a dig at Warner Bros. slate of DC Comics movie adaptations.

“You’re no fuckin’ hero,” Josh Brolin’s Cable growls at our anti-hero, “You’re just a clown dressed up as a sex toy.”

Everything about the trailer is filled with Deadpool’s classic humor with better action. We also learn a couple of things about the movie.

Cable Is The Bad Guy?

Honestly, we don’t know that. But he looks badass and won’t be stopped.  In this final trailer, he does indeed seem like he is at odds with Wade/Deadpool, as Cable is trying to (possibly?) kill a kid, who Deadpool thinks needs protecting. “Pump the hate brakes, Thanos,” quips Deadpool to the camera (you know, because Brolin is also playing the big baddie in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War movie).

Deadpool Needs Help To Stop Cable

Wade realizes he can’t beat Cable on his own, so he’s going to form his own “super duper fucking group,” to which T.J. Miller’s Weasel replies, “It’s time to get back on LinkedIn.” Brilliant. For all of Miller’s current personal woes and allegations leveled at him, he still looks hilarious in this, sparring with Ryan Reynolds. We finally learn that Terry Crews is the mutant Bedlum. But who really steals the show is Peter, just an ordinary dude that responded to an ad.

Domino Is Lucky ASF

Domino’s superpowers are luck. Those superpowers fail to impress Deadpool and Weasel during the interview.
The way her powers are portrayed on screen are definitely “cinematic,” that’s for damn sure.

Also the movie diverges from the Comic with her siding with Deadpool before she meets Cable.
