Hilary Swank's Latest Movie Goes Straight To DVD

Ouch!!

This can't be good news for her career.

Hilary Swank's latest movie, a horror film called The Resident, will skip the theaters and go straight to DVD.

She hasn't had a hit since 2004 Million Dollar Baby, where she won the Oscar for her performance in that film in 2005. Every movie since then has been a flop….which has people asking, "is her career in a slump?"

We know she has the potential to be a GREAT actress, she just needs to find better film roles. Maybe moving away from horror films might be the first step.

What do U think? Will Hilary's career continue on a downward spiral or will she get back to her award-winning movie roles?

    Well, in my opinion, P.S I love you wasn't a flop, but hey!



  2. 2

    I think the main problem is that not many very good movies are being done lately. Its all about marketing. Afterall, wasnt Twilight (with one of the worst scripts ever) a hit?.

    She has done a lot of pretty terrible films, but there was some buzz surounding her performance in Conviction, but then she didn't get nominated for anything.



  4. 4

    in order to understand the good times, one must have bad times. she'll get out of her slump when she's ready.



  5. 5

    Hillary's career would have been better if she looked like a girl.
    She's more suited for tranny and lezbo portayals.



  6. 6

    she should have had a cameo in karate kid.



  7. 7

    Swank isn't a "I wanna do her" kind of actress line Jolie or Bullock. Her career can't afford a flop.



  8. 8

    P.S. I LOVE YOU was hardly a 'flop'



  9. 9

    Re: bleahf – That's because of all the teen fans of the crappy books.

    Hilary doesn't usually pick typical block buster roles, and those films don't tend to bring in the bucks. That being said, I LOVED P.S I Love You!



  11. 11

    P.S. I Love You was definitely not a flop! One of the best love stories made in a good while.



  12. 12

    Hilary Swank is one of the few actresses in her age group who can actually act. i firmly believe that she will soon find a critically and commercially successful part!



  13. 13

    She is more of a indie film actress. Which is not a bad thing just sometimes harder market wise



  14. 14

    Re: luvs2tango – what do YOU know about acting careers? and what do YOU look like?

    i love how the criticism flows from losers in blog comments.



  15. 15

    I LOVED her performance in P.S I Love You, and that movie with the bad kids that she teaches English or something….
    She's a good actress, she just needs to get on track.

    ehhh what about convoction?? She has a sag nomination for that role! That's pretty okey..



  17. 17

    Clearly someone hasn't seen Hilary Swank's latest movie "Conviction". It is definitely a must-see and it's based on a true story which people seem to love. Superb acting it this one and everyone should definitely see it.



  18. 18

    Did you really have the balls to write, "she has the POTENTIAL to be a GREAT actress" AND write on her picture the FACT that she has 2 Academy Awards? How many other actresses her age have accomplished that? Very few actors can have a hit with every movie they make.

    Perhaps YOU have the POTENTIAL to be a decent human being, but since you are a total douche, I won't expect anything any time soon.

    Actually, considering "P.S. I Love You" made less that $60 million domestically, that is considered a flop by today's standards. I think she needs to step back and do some supporting roles for a while instead of a star vehicle. She is a good actress but not for everyone's tastes.



  20. 20

    she should just sacrifice her looks and do a real character role which might mean gaining weight etc

    Lets face it, if you want to see a good movie and by that I mean a movie with any substance, there aren't many which means the choices for good actresses are very limited. Let's try getting some original movie ideas in Hollywood so good actresses like Swank have something to work with.



  22. 22

    Maybe she likes making Horror movies. I applaud any actor who does what they like and don't just go for the money or the accolades. Any job is only fun if you do what you like, after movies like Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don't Cry she deserves to just do what she likes and have fun, it isn't always about the critics and awards.



  23. 23

    YEA, SWANK IS DEF AN INDIE TYPE ACTRESS AND GOES FOR FLICKS WITH "ISSUES" AND A "POLITICAL AGENDA". YAAAWN, THAT'S GOOD FOR SUNDANCE FESTIVAL JUDGES BUT PEOPLE RECOGNIZE YOU IN BIG BLOCKBUSTER PROJECTS. SHE NEEDS TO GET HERSELF ON AN AVATAR TYPE DEAL OR SUPPORTING ROLE IN AN ACTION FLICK. BESIDES THE SALARIES ARE WAAAY HIGHER ON BLOCKBUSTER PICS THAN THE POS FLICKS SHE GETS ON. PUT A FEW UNDER THE BELT OF THOSE PICS THEN SHE CAN AFFORD TO DO THOSE INDIE YAWWNER FILMS. TRUTH…



  24. 24

    Hi everybody….The time has finally arrived….In 1976 with my last 800.00 I created the Jelly Belly jelly bean….Candyman:the David Klein story will be released on Tuesday on Amazon and the Documentary channel websites. Thank you



  25. 25

    a ridiculous condemnation perez



  26. 26

    A women with 2 Oscars doesn't have great potential you dumb fuck. Hillary is the measuring rod to which other actresses are compared to in the movie industry. That she doesn't star in schlock crap just for the money is a rarity in the industry. Oscar number 3 is somewhere in her future considering she won her first 2 under the age of 40.



  27. 27

    wait so you are either winning oscars or you are in a slump? every movie cannot be an oscar winner. and PLENTY of movies with big names attached to them go to DVD.she will be fine.



  28. 28

    ummm…P.S. I love You made tons of money. 160,000,000 box office.



  29. 29

    Its called the Oscar curse. For some reason only the Best Actress winner seems to get it. The Best Actress winner will have no luck in love/relationships and will be in rather bad movies for a while afterwards. Remember Halle Berry's movies after her Oscar win? And Charlize Theron? At any rate, she just needs to learn to pick better movies, ones that will truly showcase her talent and give her a challenge, running around screaming from a psycho killer, is not a challenge (unless its in real life)



  30. 30

    Perez there are so many movies that are 't released in theaters with big stars. It's the way the movie business is lately. You idiot. Where's Travis lately. He's definitely been in a slump since you were in charge of his career.



  31. 31

    I'm a picky, snobby movie goer and I thought she did an excellent job in Amelia. It got 2 stars on HBO movie reruns but it and she deserved better in my opinion. Check it out.



  32. 32

    downward spiral eh?
    she's probably going to get her THIRD oscar for her role in Conviction.
    a lot of actresses would kill to have that kind of downward spiral..



  33. 33

    these people aren't STARS…just celebs…and that's not enough to draw people to their work…they r way 2 over exposed anyway…no thrill to c them on the big screen….



  34. 34

    Re: penny1206 – Well said!



  35. 35

    i hate that people determine success by numbers. trust me Twilight doesn't have the best acting i have seen from any of the actors/actress. Kristen Stewart actually was a good actress see some of her indie films and my fave of her is speak. Of all Angelina jolie movies, i loved Changling and that was one of her poorest box office draw. The Kings speech is also a poor box office draw but thats a phonominal film!



  36. 36

    Million dollar baby was one of my all time favorite movies. Legalize euthanasia!



  37. 37

    As much as people love her body, they don't seem to love her face. If I were her I'd just sit back and enjoy the money I made and not be afraid to do small roles. Someone like Donald Sutherland has had a mighty career as a character actor. He'll do anything and then every once in awhile he'll be in a hit.



  38. 38

    Re: luvs2tango – She was actually very hot and ladylike in that awful Black Dahlia movie!!



  39. 39

    I'll get my hands on The Resident…its got the delicious Lee Pace in it!



  40. 40

    Too bad as her acting is superb; however, I saw her on a talk show the other night and she needs some help on how to dress.

    At least the pressure's off. I'm sure her bank account will take her to old age. Now she can do character roles OR a good lead if they come her way.



  42. 42

    Apparently she got herpes from all those drive-through "eateries."



  43. 43

    She's not going to be a very attractive older woman.



  44. 44

    I don't care!!!



  45. 45

    i think she is pretty in face and body.

    i would bet she is hotter then any girl that the guys leaving rude comments have ever been with by far



  46. 46

    PS I Love You was NOT a flop!! It is NOT Hillary's fault The Resident is going straight to DVD, it is the company that owns the movie, THEY ARE THE FLOPS!!!!
