Put Michael Fassbender in a movie, and it’s pretty much guaranteed that we’ll watch it, especially if he’s playing something of a bad ass. That’s the case in Slow West, a new indie western starring Fassbender as a gun-toting stranger who assists a young Scottish traveler in the search for the girl he loves.

However, one of the films given a new release date is a project that continues to perplex us: the adaptation of the popular video game ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ which was first announced ages ago as a franchise for Michael Fassbender.

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.
