Rating overvalued actors of Hollywood 2017
This year, the traditional rating of the most overvalued actors, according to Forbes, included Oscar winners Brad Pitt and Christian Bale.
When an actor gets a lot of money, and his films do not generate income, this can cause frustration to film studios and problems with financing future film projects. Forbes has made another rating of movie actors who are overpaid for their work. The most overvalued Hollywood star in 2017 was the actor Mark Wahlberg. The second and third places were taken by actors Christian Bale and Channing Tatum.
For the ranking of Forbes analyzed the commercial success of the last three paintings, released before June 1, 2017, in which Hollywood actors starred. Pictures and animated films shown on less than 2000 cinema screens, where actors sounded characters, were not taken into account. The films that were released after June 1, 2017 were not considered either.
1. Mark Wahlberg
Thanks to major advances, Mark Wahlberg earned $ 68 million in a year - more than his worldwide patriot day, which was dedicated to the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon, collected in the world box office.Also, the drama “Deepwater Horizon” with Wahlberg’s participation has become a big disappointment for the film - the film barely beat off a budget of $ 110 million. From every dollar paid to Wahlberg the creators of the cinema returned only $ 4.4.
2. Christian Bale
Christian Bale received second place in the rating of overvalued actors due to the commercial failure of the film on the Armenian Genocide “The Promise”. This film earned only 11% of the production budget, making it one of the worst Hollywood releases of the year. Every dollar allocated for Bale's salary brought only $ 6.7 to film authors, which is quite modest by the standards of Hollywood.
3. Channing Tatum
Not only blockbusters fail at the box office, this happens with low-budget films, if they do not cause the expected resonance. Despite the relatively modest salary by the standards of Hollywood, Channing Tatum entered the top three most overvalued actors. This is largely due to the failure of the film "Luck Logan" with his participation. With each dollar paid to him, only $ 7.6 was returned to the filmmakers.
4. Denzel Washington
The fourth line is occupied by Denzel Washington, nominated for an Oscar for his role in the film “Fences”.This picture has collected in the US $ 57.7 million, but failed in the international box office. Coupled with the failure of the “Magnificent Seven”, this ensured the inclusion of Washington in the rating. With every dollar paid to Washington, the filmmakers returned $ 10.4.
5. Brad Pitt
The fifth place went to Oscar winner Brad Pitt, since each dollar paid to him brought the filmmakers only $ 11.5. He recently had no cash paintings, and the spy film "Allies" showed weak charges at all - with production costs of $ 85 million, he earned only $ 119.5 million.
