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)

Published

on

Warner Bros. has released a new featurette for Ready Player One.  The video looks at the influence Steven Spielberg’s films of the 1980s had on the Ernests Cline’s best selling novel.

The featurette opens with scenes from some of Spielberg’s iconic films: Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, E.T.: The Extraterrestrial, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Jurassic Park. 

Ready Player One is set 30 years in the future, the film finds the majority of the population taking refuge in a virtual-reality system called OASIS. It provides a nostalgic paradise after the rest of the world that has fallen to overpopulation, pollution, corruption — specifically ’80s nostalgia, thanks to the eccentric creator James Halliday’s (Mark Rylance) childhood affinity for the decade. When Halliday dies, he leaves his massive fortune up for grabs to whoever can solve the elaborate scavenger hunt he has hidden within OASIS, which is where our story begins. Tye Sheridan plays the plucky protagonist who is one of millions who embark on the scavenger hunt, while Olivia Cooke is the expert OASIS player Artemis, his foe and friend.

Ready Player One stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, TJ Miller, Lena Waithe, and Mark Rylance

Ready Player One is set to arrive in theaters on March 30, 2018

Peter Dinklage Is Ready For Game Of Thrones To End

Published

on

HBO announced that Game of Thrones won’t air the final season until 2019. One of the series longtime stars Peter Dinklage is ready for the show to end.

“It’s time,” the actor said at Variety’s Sundance Film Festival studio. “Storywise, not just for all our lives. It’s the perfect time to end it. Sometimes shows stay on a little too long, the jumping-the-shark thing.”

Rumors have circulated that the final season of Game of Thrones will feature longer, possibly movie-length episodes. Most viewers already know the series won’t return this year. Dinklage, who plays the character Tyrion Lannister, didn’t clarify if he was referring to the longer shooting schedule or the rumored extended length of the episodes.

“It’s bittersweet when it’s time to move on with everything,” he said. “It’s always the sad part of our business, because you get pockets of great people for short amounts of time and then you have to move on and it’s always heartbreaking. Especially when you’ve spent more than a couple months with people.”
