Has it ceased to be Johnny Depp of box office appeal?

Many current players are still legend, beyond the terrible decisions that make cinematically, these are usually established talents, which in the past attracted hordes of spectators to the boards, but that currently cannot be connected with young audiences (examples: Robert De Niro, Bruce Willis).

The current movie buff possibly grew up watching movies starring Johnny Depp who, as well as Tom Cruise, should have a relatively successful career in cinema. But it is not so. The question is: has ceased to be Johnny Depp a box-office attraction?

Nothing transcendent

This question arises mainly after the huge failure that was his most recent film, Transcendence, that despite looking quite attractive for the public fan of the science fiction and adventure that he made Oblivion a success, hardly had he managed to collect one-sixth of its budget of $ 100 million. Even though this last decision inadequate, considering that it was the debut of a director of photography, it is impossible to think that, given what is supposed to be a big star like Depp in the lead role, he has raised even less than the recognized failure of science fiction Stealth.

The best movies of Mel Gibson

Filmography of the American actor Mel Columcille Gerard Gibson, better known as Mel Gibson, began in 1976 with the series The Sullivans, which played one minor role, and continues to this day. Choose a small group among all these works carried out is a difficult task, especially for those who admire his versatile performances: went through drama, humor, horror, action, and suspense and in each of these genres, transmitted sensations which no doubt had an impact in much of the public.

On this occasion, we will accept the challenge of selecting the best 5 movies of Mel Gibson:

5. Lethal Weapon (1987)

This excellent comedy shows that despite having the profile of typical Galán, can carry the comedy with a grace that will make the audience cry laugh and forget that it is a “pretty face”. Riggs, the Gibson character, is clumsy and foolish alongside Danny Glover, and the pair works perfectly.

8 references of Charles Bronson, the more gruff actor

Mark Wahlberg won the Generational award at the recent MTV Movie Awards gala. In his acceptance speech, the protagonist of the new Transformers said that he decided to become an actor after seeing a film of the legendary Charles Bronson.

And it could not be for less, since Bronson was one of the most hard and violent actors who has had the big screen, in addition to having a prolific career. But beyond their professional merits, it is the best reference for any action hero, because in his private life was also a really rough type, these references confirm that.

#8 worked in a coal mine as a child

At age 10, Bronson was working at a coal mine once his father died. They paid only $1 per ton of coal removed. It is a home really hard, unlike those actors who began being waiters.
