Hollywood’s Most and Least Profitable Stars Revealed

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

New data claims to name the most popular actor in Hollywood — and it might not be who you expect.

According to data compiled by PartyCasino, which analyzed box office numbers from 1980 to 2017 to determine Hollywood’s most and least profitable actors, Emilio Estevez takes the crown.

Estevez, whose Brat Pack heyday was in the ’80s and ’90s, topped the list with the best return of any top-billed male actor who has starred in at least 10 films. For every $1 spent on the leading man’s films, Estevez generated $6.70 at the box office. Jean-Claude Van Damme ranked second with $4.20 for each dollar, while other great investments were Mel Gibson ($3.50), Tyler Perry ($3), and Dudley Moore ($3).

Brad Pitt was the least profitable actor and returned only 10 cents for every $1 spent, followed by Johnny Depp (20 cents), Robert De Niro (24 cents), Hugh Jackman (25 cents), and Anthony Hopkins (26 cents).

PartyCasino had less extensive results for actresses, because, as a representative »

Emilio Estevez Is the Most Profitable Actor in Hollywood

2 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Hard to believe? Yes. But Emilio Estevez, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2010's The Way, which he directed, is the most profitable actor in modern Hollywood. He has overshadowed Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr., and even workaholic Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. So, how is this even possible? That's a good question.

Research has proven without a doubt that between the years 1980 and 2017, Emilio, brother to Charlie Sheen and son to Martin Sheen, has made more profitable movies than his big screen counterparts. Which is kind of amazing. The data comes from analysts at PartyCasino, a unit of the Gvc gaming group. They have intensely studied and broken down box office data from the past thirty years. And when the smoke cleared, it was Young Guns and Mighty Ducks star Estevez who stood as the king of Hollywood profitability. Perhaps he'll soon return to leading man status now that »

‘Hangman’ Trailer: Al Pacino Stars In Off Brand ‘Se7en’

18 October 2017 11:51 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While we’re all excited that Al Pacino is finally working Martin Scorsese on “The Irishman,” let’s not forget that he’s immune to making low-rent trash (much like his co-star, Robert De Niro). Case in point: “Hangman.”

Co-starring Karl Urban and Brittany Snow, the film seems to play like an off brand “Se7en” or “Mindhunter,” with a very grizzled Pacino plays a detective who is joined by a criminal profiler as they track a serial killer that murders people in a version of the children’s game, Hangman.

Matthew Vaughn and Stardust, 10 years on

18 October 2017 8:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Oct 19, 2017

We salute the 10th anniversary of Matthew Vaughn's wonderful Stardust...

“A philosopher once asked, 'Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?' Pointless, really. Do the stars gaze back? Now, that's a question.”

Comic book movies are Matthew Vaughn's speciality. Between Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, he's been a constant and eclectic presence as these films have boomed, and if reports are to be believed, his next film could be about either Flash Gordon or Superman.

But going back even further than Mark Millar or Marvel, Vaughn's first comic book movie was his adaptation of Neil Gaiman's Stardust, which arrived in UK cinemas ten years ago this week. Before it was published as a novel in 1999, Gaiman conceived the postmodern fairy tale as a 'prestige' comic; the four-issue mini-series »

Tribeca Film Festival Co-Founder Jane Rosenthal Asks Industry Women to ‘Commit to Mentoring the Next Generation’

17 October 2017 1:47 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Jane Rosenthal is mad as hell, but she’s got an idea for how to turn that anger into action. After weeks of allegations of sexual harassment and abuse against various bigwigs in the entertainment industry, many of them waged by actresses and female filmmakers, the producer has cooked up a plan to help change the industry and the world. No surprise, it asks for talented and rising women to help each other in a male-dominated business, all for the better.

Rosenthal, who co-founded the Tribeca Film Festival with Robert DeNiro and currently serves Chief Executive Officer of Tribeca Enterprises, today opened up this year’s kickoff lunch for the third annual Through Her Lens: Tribeca Chanel Women’s Filmmaker Program, with some pointed remarks. As she put it, “I’m having a Howard Beale moment. Like the character Peter Finch played in ‘Network,’ I’m mad as hell,” later adding, »

17 October 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

When Lillo Brancato Jr. was chosen to play Robert De Niro‘s son in 1993’s A Bronx Tale, he was considered one of Hollywood’s hottest young actors. With all the offers that entailed.

At the time, De Niro took the then-17-year-old under his wing and gave him some fatherly advice. “Early on in my career I spoke to Bob and Chazz about how profound changes would occur in my life,” Brancato, now 41, tells People. “They said once this movie goes out, you will have people around you who will expose you to dangerous things and you have to be careful. »

Amazon, the Democrats and the Fallout From the Harvey Weinstein Scandal

17 October 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The New York Times and New Yorker stories detailing a decades-long history of alleged sexual abuse have undone the career of Harvey Weinstein. Bounced from his role as co-chairman of the company he founded with his brother Bob, his name scrubbed from multiple projects, expelled from the Academy, and publicly denounced by dozens of high-profile actors, executives and filmmakers, the mogul has been tossed out of the business of which he was once a titan.

But he’s not the only one facing a reckoning. With even more revelations about Weinstein’s misdeeds coming to light, the scandal has had a ripple effect throughout the industry, dragging down multiple companies and public figures in its wake.

Netflix Plans to Release 80 Original Films in 2018

16 October 2017 3:49 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix expects to release around 80 original films next year, as it looks to hit the kind of scale in movies that it’s achieved on the TV side, according to chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“They range anywhere from the million-dollar Sundance hit, all the way up to something on a much larger scale,” like Will Smith-starrer “Bright,” Sarandos said in an investors’ interview Monday about Netflix’s third-quarter 2017 results.

Bright,” a cop action-thriller movie directed by David Ayer, had a reported production price tag of $90 million. It’s set to debut on Netflix worldwide on Dec. 22. Sarandos also cited as a forthcoming big-budget picture Martin Scorsese’s gangster movie “The Irishman,” starring Robert DeNiro, slated to be released on Netflix in early 2019. “The Irishman” has a budget of more $100 million.

Sarandos said with the release of “Bright” — a “big-budget, event movie” — “I think people will start seeing the potential for this original movie initiative, that it »

Never Say Die just won't quit.

The body-swapping sports comedy from theater troupe turned film powerhouse Mahua Funage earned $30.9 million in its third weekend, bringing its 16-day total to a massive $280 million, according to box-office analysts EntGroup.

That was just enough to give it the title of biggest comedy ever in a single market, taking the crown from Ben Stiller's and Robert DeNiro's Meet the Fockers ($279.3 million, 2004). It also surged past Jackie Chan's Kung Fu Yoga ($250 million) from earlier this year, becoming the biggest comedy ever in the China market.

First image of Al Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa in Martin Scorcese’s ‘The Irishman.’

If you’re wondering just what Al Pacino is doing now he’s mugging for the camera, or so it would seem, in Martin Scorcese’s upcoming film The Irishman, which is due to come out in 2018. Pacino, along with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci, has worked with Scorcese in the past, and has worked with DeNiro on more than one occasion. Amazingly Pacino and Pesci have never really worked together before, so this might be an interesting treat for the avid fans that have followed these stars throughout their long and illustrious careers. It seems as though Scorcese is doubling down

Amazon scraps David O. Russell’s drama series as it severs ties with The Weinstein Company

15 October 2017 7:52 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As part of the fallout from the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse allegations, Amazon has announced that it has scrapped plans for an untitled drama series from David O. Russell, which it was co-producing with The Weinstein Company.

The project would have saw Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore starring, and apparently already had around $40 million spent during development.

“We support Amazon’s decision as in light of recent news and out of respect for all those affected we have decided together that it is best to not move forward with this show,” reads a statement from Russell, De Niro and Moore.

In addition to scrapping the drama from Russell, Amazon has also severed its ties with The Weinstein Company on The Romanoffs, and will now continue with the series on its own, rather than as a co-production with TWC. »

Helen Mirren will receive Chaplin Award Photo: Giles Keyte British actress Helen Mirren is to be honoured at the 45th Chaplin Award Gala next April. The star, who won an Oscar for her performance in The Queen, will receive the annual honour from the Film Society of Lincoln Center in New York.

The 72-year-old, who received a BAFTA fellowship in 2014, joins previous winners of the award, including Robert De Niro, Bette Davis and Sidney Poitier, which was inaugurated in 1972, when Charlie Chaplin returned to the Us from exile to accept the commendation.

The society's board chairman Ann Tenenbaum said: “It is an honour and a pleasure for us to present Helen Mirren with our 45th Chaplin Award. From housemaid to Queen and everything in between, Ms. Mirren has delivered masterful performances of complex characters, upending stereotype after stereotype along the way.”
