Vin Diesel Is The Highest Grossing Actor Of 2017



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.

1. Vin Diesel ($1.6 billion)

2. Dwayne Johnson ($1.5 billion)

3. Gal Gadot ($1.4 billion}

Netflix Cancels Luke Cage Series



It looks like Luke Cage is the latest Marvel Hero to get canceled.

Netflix announced they would be canceling the series just a week after canceling Iron Fist. “Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and the streaming service said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

The second season had Luke Cage embracing his fame after the events of Defenders until Bushmaster played by Mustafia Shakir shows up to claim Harlem. Bushmaster wanted control of Harlem’s gangs, something that not only puts him on Luke’s to-punch list, but also in the crosshairs of Mariah (Alfre Woodard,) who has consolidated her control of Harlem and isn’t interested in interlopers. Fortunately, Luke isn’t without backup, as Misty Knight (Simone Missick) has a bright shiny new robot arm to beat up goons with.

Luke Cage was one of the best shows on Netflix, its sad day that creative difference between the higher-ups means no show for the fans.

Showtime released the official trailer for their limited dark comedy series, Black Monday.

Created by David Caspe (Happy Endings) and Jordan Cahan (My Best Friend’s Girl), who will serve as executive producers and showrunners, Black Monday also boasts Emmy nominees Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (Preacher, Superbad, Future Man) as executive producers; they also directed the pilot.

“It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling.”

Cheadle plays a fast-talking, cocaine-toting stockbroker who declares in the trailer, “I am black Moses and I am going to put the ‘brother’ in Lehman Brothers,” while Rannells’ character declares, “I’m gonna become the biggest swinging dick on Wall Street.”

The trailer, soundtracked by Lil Wayne’s “Uproar,” captures the excess that comes with a healthy market and the dramatic fall from financial grace that arrived on Black Monday. The series’ pilot, directed by Rogen and Goldberg, premieres on Showtime on January 20th.
