Update: The Measured Circle’s 2010 Box Office MVPs
We’ve updated The Measured Circle’s 2010 Box Office MVPs with the more than $40 million dollar opening of TRON: Legacy.
Our top ten remains the same, but TRON added two other actors to our list:
- Michael Sheen, who had already appeared in Alice in Wonderland in 2010, needed one more $40m movie
- Cillian Murphy is uncredited in TRON: with that and Inception, he’s in
Unstoppable, Tangled, and Harry Potter all added to their US domestic grosses since we first posted this year’s list on December 14th.
As a reminder, The Measured Circle’s 2010 Top Ten Box Office MVPs (with updated grosses are:
#1, #2, #3 (tie) Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, and Timothy Spall all appeared in both Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland…giving them an average dogro of $300m.
#4 Michael Keaton, thanks to voicing Ken in Toy Story 3 and appearing in The Other Guys, is fourth with $267m…didn’t pick him, did you?
#5 Anne Hathaway, $222m (Alice in Wonderland, Valentine’s Day…Love and Other Drugs isn’t counted, because it hasn’t dogroed $40m)
#6 Jackson Rathbone, $216.5m (Eclipse and Airbender…ask your kids)
#7 Samuel L. Jackson, 215.5m (Iron Man 2, The Other Guys…he probably is always up there as an MVP)
#8 Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter and Clash of the Titans)
#9 Leonardo DiCaprio (Shutter Island, Inception…if we only counted lead roles, he’d be higher)
#10 Mickey Rourke (Iron Man 2, The Expendables)
Special thanks to all of the fansites of Jackson Rathbone (#7) who have linked to this site…and given us credit. 🙂
