2014 The Measured Circle's Box Office MVPs

by Bufo_Calvin | created - 06 Mar 2014 | updated - 10 May 2015 | Public

Who are the Most Valuable Players in the movies? What actors generate the most American domestic gross (dogro)? There are a lot of ways to measure this, and The Measured Circle has our own (begun with movies released in 2010).

Here are our rules:

1. You must have been first-billed in a movie that makes at least $100 million dogro in the year in question

2. You must have appeared in at least one other movie that dogroed at least $40 million in the year in question (but you do not have to have been first-billed)

3. Voice roles count: one of the reasons they cast big names in animated features is that they attract audiences

4. Since we base it on release year, it may be well into the following year until the standings are final.

We do not count re-releases that do not happen in the same year as the initial release. Movies in which the actor appeared and earned at least $40 million in the year in question may appear in the description for the actor.


Projected (we expect that at least one of the movies listed for the actor will break $100m domestically, and that the other will make at least $40m domestically):

Possible (in these cases, we are not as confident that either of the movies will get to $100m, and that the other one will get to $40m):

Why isn't...on the list? Shaquille O'Neal: while he did appear in The Lego Movie and Blended, he was not first billed in the former. Shaq did appear on the list in 2013
