If we told you that 2017’s top-grossing actor was fast AND furious, you’d likely guess Dwayne Johnson – but you’d have to guess again.
According to Forbes, it’s actually Vin Diesel who brought in the most moolah this year, with US$1.6 billion in ticket sales. This was mostly from the hugely successful Fate of the Furious, along with the return of Xander Cage in, erm, xXx: The Return of Xander Cage.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (who’s probably getting sick of having ‘The Rock’ sandwiched within his name) was very close behind Diesel on US$1.5 billion, and with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (read our review here) just out he’s sure to start 2018 off with a fiscally advantageous bang.
A surprise for some – and a very pleasant one – is Gal Gadot at number three, with US$1.4 billion. Wonder Woman breathed welcome life into the DCEU, and has made the Israeli actor a household name.
The rest of the top 10 are:
4: Emma Watson
5: Johnny Depp
6: Daisy Ridley
7: Tom Holland
8: Chris Pratt
9: Chris Hemsworth
10: John Boyega
Hmm, Evans and Pine need to lift their respective games…
