Congratulations to The Measured Circle’s 2011 Top 10 Movie Box Office MVPs!

While the box office returns for movies released in 2011 aren’t final, we are ready to congratulate those actors who have made it on to our list!

You can see all of the MVPs and the details here:

2011 The Measured Circle’s Box Office MVPs

To sum up, our rules our this:

  1. You must have been first billed in a movie released in the USA in 2011 that makes at least $100 million there (domestic gross, which we abbreviate “dogro”)
  2. You must have appeared in another 2011 USA release (at whatever billing) in a movie that dogroed at least $40 million
  3. Voice roles count…a star cast in a voice role can influence box office

Our rankings are based on the average of the movies for those who qualified that dogroed at least $40 million. While they may have appeared in great movies that didn’t make $40 million, those are not included in the calculation.
