Hollywood’s Most Overpaid & Best Value Actors Of 2017

Each year, Forbes comes out with their Most Overpaid and Best Value actors list, and each year I’m a bit mystified by the math. For whatever reason, box office figures are compiled for the last three movies an actor appeared in before June 1, 2017 ( ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) and are measured against “estimated” salaries to determine the return on investment, but limited release movies don’t count.

So, it’s why Emma Watson winds up as the second most valuable star in Hollywood right, thanks to the Disney behemoth “Beauty & The Beast,” even though her box office disaster “The Circle,” which came shortly thereafter, and you already forgot about, doesn’t factor into the calculations (nor her pre-‘Beauty’ limited release misfires “Regression” and “Colonia“).

‘Phantom Thread’: Everything You Need to Know About Daniel Day-Lewis’ Final Movie

‘Phantom Thread’: Everything You Need to Know About Daniel Day-Lewis’ Final Movie
The Oscar race isn’t over until the last movie screens, and this year one of the final contenders to be unveiled will be “Phantom Thread.” The drama marks the hugely anticipated reunion between Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis, who last worked together a decade ago on “There Will Be Blood.” The Upton Sinclair-inspired drama earned eight Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, and gave Day-Lewis his second trophy for Best Actor (he’d make history and win a third for “Lincoln” five years later), so anyone would be foolish to underestimate just how big “Phantom Thread” will be this awards season.

Focus Features has been keeping a majority of the details surrounding the movie under lock and key, although the official trailer was finally released on October 23, teasing a gorgeously shot drama about the romantic obsessions of a self-destructive artist. “Phantom Thread” seems to operating

Why Did Emma Watson's 'The Circle' Bomb?

  • Yidio
2017-05-01T06:31:02-07:00Why Did Emma Watson's 'The Circle' Bomb?

Stardom can be a very perishable commodity at the modern box office.

Over the weekend, the thriller The Circle, starring Emma Watson as a young woman working for a nefarious high-tech company, opened to disheartening $9.3 million from 3,163 theaters.

That's in stark comparison to Watson's other movie still in the marketplace, Disney's blockbuster Beauty and the Beast, the live-action update of the 1991 animated classic that has grossed north of $1.14 billion to date globally. (Watson rose to fame upon playing Hermoine Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise.)

Watson — who rose to fame upon playing Hermoine Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise and then achieved a whole new level of success with Beast — actively promoted her new movie via her Twitter account, which has nearly 25 million followers. She also participated in a traditional media junket,

Shia Labeouf’s new film Man Down sells just one ticket during UK opening weekend

Shia Labeouf’s latest film Man Down opened in the UK this past Friday, and according to THR, it managed to gross just £7 over the weekend, selling a single ticket in a cinema in Burnley.

The thriller – which received a limited theatrical release and also hit VOD the same day – is directed by Dito Montiel and sees Labeouf’s U.S. Marine searching for his estranged wife and son in post-apocalyptic America. Labeouf is joined in the cast by Kate Mara, Jai Courtney and Gary Oldman.

Man Down’s opening weekend echoes that of the Emma Watson / Daniel Bruhl film The Colony (a.k.a. Colonia), which earned just £47 during its opening weekend last year, , while the Al Pacino / Anthony Hopkins thriller Misconduct also pulled in just £97 last summer.

Emma Watson Explains Why She Turned Down Disney’s Live Action ‘Cinderella’

Post-“Harry Potter,” Emma Watson has actively avoided blockbusters, instead turning her attention to auteurs like Sofia Coppola (“The Bling Ring“) and James Ponsoldt (this spring’s “The Circle“), or using her star power to get small projects off the ground, to varying results (“The Perks Of Being A Wallflower” is great, “Colonia” isn’t).

DVD Review: The Clan

  • CineVue
★★★★☆ From Argentine director Pablo Trapero, The Clan is the third South American-set drama of the last twelve months to inspect the devastating personal trauma caused by autocratic, prison-like communities. From a remote Chilean coastal village Pablo Larrain's The Club scythed through a suffocating cloak of hushed-up Catholic church abuse; with less gut-wrenching guile Florian Gallenberger exposed the sordid Pinochet era exploits of German tyrant Paul Schafer in The Colony. The Clan takes place in Trapero's homeland across the border and focuses on the outwardly normal, well-to-do Puccio family, who, in the early 1980s, kidnapped and murdered people for money.

Why Emma Watson's £47 flop wasn't meant to be a box-office hit

New films from the Harry Potter star, Morgan Freeman and Al Pacino might have scored low UK opening weekends but they’re part of a new release strategy

Emma Watson’s films have made over $8.4bn at the worldwide box office. She boasts more than 22 million followers on Twitter and more than 33 million likes on Facebook. Yet earlier this month, her new thriller The Colony made just £47 in its opening weekend. That means fewer than 10 people in the UK came out to see it.
