Man or woman. I bet she'll even bounce Harrison Ford.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl
Guardians of the Galaxy 1,2 and beyond.
The Avengers Infinity Wars 1,2 and beyond
Star Trek 1,2,3 and beyond
Avatar 1,2,3,4.
My Little Pony: The Movie and beyond

I'm actually surprised she doesn't already hold the title.

Tell me how I'm wrong. Who do you see topping her?

I can see that.

I wonder who is the current "unlikely" box office champ though. I'm thinking along the lines of Hugo Weaving. The LOTR & Hobbit films, Matrix Trilogy, the Transformers series, Captain America, and Happy Feet. He's gotta be up there.

According to Box Office Mojo, it's Samuel L Jackson.

I don't even see Weaving in the top 50.

Who cares??? She got lucky to be in some successful franchises. No one goes to see a movie strictly for her.

Pretty much. Although they tried with Colombiana and that movie sucked. The same with her ROsemary's Baby remake series.

If we just count cameos, Stan Lee probably sits pretty high.

For voice work: Frank Welker.

Isn't Christopher Lee up there? LOTR and Star Wars alone should put him up there.

I would agrree that it would be Stan Lee since he is in all the Marvel movies and with 3 a year grossing at least $300 million each, that adds $1 billion domestic to the total. Assumuming he lives a few more years he could easily top Jackson and he may have some generic scenes tucked away that could be inserted into Marvel movie for years after his death.

After checking, it looks like Stan is the highest even topping Jackson at about 7.7 billion. Zoe Saldana is #77 on the list at $2.8 billion. She's got a long way to go.

It's more an interesting factoid rather than an indication of popularity.

Interesting on this list is that many of the top earners are ones that many people would not expect of possibly even heard of before.

John Ratzenberger at number 5 due to voice acting
Most people will not know who Frank Welker is.
Anthony Daniels probably has the highes averge movie gross on the list as he is the Stan Lee of Star Wars movies.

Voice work is definitely where it's at!

I had to Google who the fuck Bob Bergen and Mickie McGowan are. Both of which are in the Top 15 and higher than Tom Cruise.

Looks like Bergen and McGowan have the benefit of being in all the Pixar movies. Pretty much how Stan Lee got to the top of the list.

Yep. Pixar owns the first half of that list.

D'oh, I should have thought of Ratzenberger. Talk about unlikely.

Jackson doesn't fall into the "unlikely" category though. He's a mega star that headlines movies. No one would be surprised to see him at the top of a list like this. It'd be interesting to take guru's list and remove the Fords, Cruises, Downy Jrs, Hanks, etc. of the world and leave just actors that don't headline movies.

Stan Lee is unique since he just cameos with nothing more than a single line of dialog.

I counted 12 on that list I never heard of, plus quite a few more I've heard of but have never actually seen in anything (e.g. Warwick Davis).

We are talking about actors in highest grossing movies but not individual actor income correct?

Re: 5 years from now the highest grossing actor of all-time will be Zoe Saldana.

Really looking at the list, I would say that maybe 20 are true headliners/leading actors. Samuel Jackson I would say is borderline headliner at best. He's mainly only on the list for tow reasns. One is he doesn't seem to be very choosy about the roles he accepts. He's starred in 123 according to the list, well above just about all of the others.vthr other reason is that he's acted in small roles in 2 big franchises. He was in episodes 1- 3 of Star Wars and a number of Marvel movies. I don't know if many people go to his movies just to see him, but define tell not for the franchise movies.

Elizabeth Banks is quite high on the list but virtually no one is going to the movies just because she is in it. She sits ok n the list just below Tom Cruise but the are not in the same league even though I personally don't line Cruise.

I really don't think any of Stan Lee's cameos should count except for his role in Mallrats.

Re: 5 years from now the highest grossing actor of all-time will be Zoe Saldana.

They should make another list that excludes actors who have less then 3 minutes of screen-time. Voice work would still count if the character is on screen more then 3 minutes. It will however not count the cameo's which is sort of a cheat to count that movie towards the actors BO.

Although looking at the list, looks like Stan Lee would take the biggest hit. Probably drop him down to just Mallrats.

I love that Warwick Davis is #6. Those Leprecheun movies must have made a bundle
