Vin Diesel- top grossing actor of 2017
Vin Diesel- top grossing actor by beating his Fast And Furious co-star Dwayne Johnson to be known as this year’s top-grossing actor. The action star’s latest addition to the xXx franchise, xXx: Return Of Xander Cage, topped the 1.2 billion us dollars (£897 million) how The Fate Of The Furious raked in worldwide to see his films make 1.6 billion us dollars (£1.2 billion) put together in 2017, according to Forbes.
Box office flop Baywatch was unable to buoy The Rock, whose releases this year have up to now taken in 1.5 billion dollars (£1.12 billion) with Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle still out in cinemas.
Wonder Woman superstar Gal Gadot emerged in third after her films, also including Justice League, made 1.4 billion us dollars (£1.05 billion) globally.
Britons are well displayed in the annual list, with Harry Potter favorite Emma Watson moving out of Hermione’s shadow to star as Belle in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast – the year’s highest grossing film up to now with global takings of just one 1.26 billion us dollars (£942 million).
Daisy Ridley pipped fellow Londoner John Boyega in the list, as combined takings of just one 1.08 billion dollars (£807 million) from star turns in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Murder On The Orient Express helped her to 6th place.
The Last Jedi’s takings of nearly 800 million us dollars (£597 million) in its first two weeks helped Boyega, who also starred in smaller movies Circle and Detroit, place 10th.
Tom Holland managed to get to the 7th place with global revenue of 888 million us dollars (£664 million) mostly bolstered by his revival of a comic book hero in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Johnny Depp, Chris Pratt and Chris Hemsworth make up the 10, concluding fifth, 8th and ninth respectively.
Forbes calculated the ranking with the addition of up global ticket sales of top actors’ films using data from Box Office Mojo, and animated videos with voice overs or stars in minor jobs were excluded.
