The other day we brought you the not-so-shocking revelation that Adam Sandler is the most overpaid actor in Hollywood (for the second year in a row!), but what about the actors who made 2014 a great time at the movies? We’re talking about the leading men and women who aren’t necessarily the highest-paid, but who have brought in the most money at the box office—proving their successful ability to draw millions of people to see their films, sometimes more than once. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that your imaginary BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are at the top of the list of the highest-grossing actors of 2014.

Two of our most anticipated films next year happen to be sequels: ‘Jurassic World’ and ‘Mad Max: Fury Road.’ It’s not often that sequels get people this excited, which is even more reason to celebrate. Following their fantastic trailers, both films have just released new photos to give us a sneak peek at a couple of particularly awesome moments. And while these photos should help satisfy our craving to see these films immediately, we have to admit that they’re just making us a little more impatient.
Your Christmas gift from ‘Jurassic World’ has arrived early. Previously, the first trailer for the upcoming sequel had teased a moment near the end in which Chris Pratt’s character appeared to be teaming up with the super lethal velociraptors to take down the super-smart hybrid dinosaur wreaking havoc in the world’s most ill-advised theme park. And now director Colin Trevorrow has revealed this pretty rad new photo of Pratt hanging tough with one of his raptor pals.
The future of ‘Parks and Recreation’ looks especially grim, but only by the fact that 2015 will bring us the last 13 episodes ever, rather than the spiffy-looking 2017 the characters seem to be enjoying. Drones drop off our packages, Chris Pratt has his own TV show, and more await in the first trailer for the final season of NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation!’
The current plan for the next ‘Ghostbusters’ film is the all-female reboot, which will be directed by Paul Feig (‘Bridesmaids’). We’ve heard that Feig has spoke with Jennifer Lawrence (who would make a great Venkman, BTW), Emma Stone and Rebel Wilson about parts in the film and it seems like a very exciting cast is coming together. So…what’s this talk of Channing Tatum, Chris Pratt and Ryan Gosling wanting to star in a ‘Ghostbusters’ movie?
A lot of Blu-rays and DVDs put blooper reels on their DVD and Blu-ray releases, but Marvel Studios’ tend to be the best. When you get a bunch of really charismatic actors in crazy costumes and give them very silly dialogue, their inevitable mistakes are just so much funnier. Watching an actor mess around on set is funny, but watching an actor dressed like your favorite superhero goof around on set is hilarious. So, it should go without saying that the blooper reel for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is a real winner.
This post spawned from a curious desire to know what person appeared in the highest grossing films of the year. An extremely liberal definition of “appearance” was used: cameos and voice roles both count. So, basically, all a person has to do is actually appear in (or speak in) a movie and that movie’s worldwide box office numbers count toward that person's total.
As Star-Lord, the quipping, fighting leader of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy,’ Chris Pratt already has plenty of experience playing the member of outlaws and vigilantes who become an unlikely bunch of heroes. In other words, he’s already kind of made ‘The Magnificent Seven’ in outer space, so why not make the real thing?
'The LEGO Movie' had no right being any good. It was a movie, based on bunch of toy blocks. But, not only was it a good movie, it was a great movie. And, not only was it a great movie, it was one of the biggest movies of the year, beating out 'Transformers' and 'X-Men' movies. We're here to take a look at one of the biggest surprises of the year and some very interesting facts you might not know about 'The LEGO Movie' in the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies. But, first....where are my pants?
We’re all still a little excited about that ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer, but the first official full-length trailer for ‘Jurassic World’ also debuted a few days ago, and we’re still thinking about a few things: The giant aquatic dinosaur leaping through the air to eat the shark, the super-smart hybrid dino that serves as the film’s central conflict, and the implication near the end of the trailer that Chris Pratt’s protagonist is using the velociraptors to help track down and kill the super-smart killer dino. Director Colin Trevorrow knows exactly what we want to talk about, in a new interview, he’s talking about all of it.
