Will Smith Makes The Money!

will__opt.jpg

Forbes decided to do yet another(!) survey - they gotta keep their writers busy - and they decided to take a look at some numbers.

What did they discover?

They discovered that Will Smith is the most valuable actor in Hollywood.

Smith was the only actor to received a perfect 10 in the Forbes Star Currency survey.

Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Angelina Jolie all tied for second place. The rest of the top 20 include Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Jack Nicholson, and Matt Damon.

These are the folks who can almost guarantee to pull in numbers at the box office, regardless of the film they're starring in. And with a combined 69 nominations and 15 wins, as far as film awards go, they're not so bad at acting either.

So in an economy where people might not want to spent $10 on a movie they might end up not liking, we bet we'll be seeing Will Smith's face a whole lot more these days!

    that's made up nonsense conjured up by the black-loving liberal media!

    the curious case of ben. buttons- $150 million to make $135 million to market, Paramount has spent to promote “on its Oscar campaign $10 million. ($295 million) Take so far -$120 million -Seeing Paramount chiefs lose their lavish jobs-priceless (unfortunately-they probably will take the peons with them and Pitt will still make the big bucks even though his films don't bring it in)



  20. 20

    135 million to market wow???????? well worldwide close to 200 but that still sux, but i was just trying to make point that he does bring in dough even if it costs more dough to make it lol

    Re: leftygl – tisk tisk tisk. mamita, you posted the gross, im talking about PROFIT. button cost $200 million!!!!!
    thank you for your time.



  22. 22

    surely he must deserve to lose at least one mark for his complete and utter inability to act! Unless it just so happens the character notes for every role he's ever played have matched his own character - smug, self-satisfied, preaching, pretentious dullard



  23. 23

    WHO FUCKING CARES ABOUT THIS IN THIS ECONOMY!
    BOYCOTT FORBES AND THEIR B.S. MAGAZINE
    AND FUCK THESE SPOILED RICH BRATS.
    ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    This guy's at the top of the entertainment biz. And to think he passed up his OTHER career choice, which was to be a mathematician or engineer with a degree from MIT. Talk about gifted!



  26. 26

    Ok so what???? Forbes people just put as #1 the one who pays them more money… you should know that…

    Stevie, what glue are you sniffing? "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" has (as of February 9, 2009) made $194,919,964. worldwide. $120,000,000. of that gross is domestic. The production cost of the film was $150,000,000. The film may make, or come close, to that amount domestically. But even without the domestic gross, I predict the film will gross over $200,000,000 overseas.

    Re: justtfax – Justtfax, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" is going to do very well overseas. The film has just been released in the major overseas markets during the last three weeks (most recently, Japan). Overseas numbers aren't posted as quickly as domestic numbers, but this film is going to be HUGE overseas. Did you know that "Troy" didn't meet its production cost domestically (I think it barely made $120,000,000 in the U.S.) and yet it made nearly $400,000,000 overseas, not counting domestic gross?

    Curious Case of Benjamin is only just being released around the world. It is currently Number 1 movie in the world box office chart. But of course, the idiotic experts here know it all. All they know is US box office, as if the world cares about the useless Dollars!! Wanted was one of the biggest movies of 2008, Kung Fu was huge, Changeling did relatively well even in the US (lets face it, you all like brainless movies), it is only just know being released around the world and is doing box office business. Changeling is a drama not a blockbuster. These so-called nobody experts here make me laugh. Angelina brings in $15 for every pound she is paid. None of the other oscar nominated movies have done as well as Changeling and Benjamin Bratt.

    Surprised ArmPitt and Whorealina were ranked so high. Their movies usually don't do that well if they have the top billing, with the obvious "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" being the rare exception. Other than that, most filmgoers do not like them and avoid their movies. The only reason I went to see "Changeling" was because it had a neat, suspenseful story and it was directed by DA MAN, Clint Eastwood. Angelina was decent in the role but she pretty much played another variation of characters she has done in the past. And ArmPitt usually doesn't have to act - his characters are usually boring dimwits, just like him.
