Actors whose movies grossed the most this year

The year was filled with memorable performances by notable actors, starring in  blockbuster movies that made so much money the figures might often be mistaken for a typo when viewed in print. It was truly a money spinning year for a lot of movies while others languished in Box office bomb hells.

Some of the actors who grossed the most money in movies this year are not the usual suspects. No Robert Downey Jr this time in the top three, although the Iron Man star dominated the list for consecutive years in the not too distant past. 

We have a new comer at the top of the list. A beautifully delightful addition to any list. You will agree with me if you saw her impressive performance in one of the biggest box office successes of the year.

As Star Wars the Last Jedi continues to spin its hypnotic pull on audiences worldwide, three Hollywood stars were in a close race for the highest grossing actors of the year. Two of these A Listers starred in the same movie,  and one of them was the highest paid actor in the world last year. 

Here are the top three actors whose movies  grossed the highest in 2017.

3. Gal Gadot

2. The Rock Dwayne Johnson

1. Vin Diesel

Yes it's true—Diesel has been named the top grossing actor of the year 2017. It was quite a busy and lucrative year for the muscle bound action star. 

Diesel had three films released throughout the year. The first was the 3rd installment —xXx 3: The Return of Xander Cage which launched Diesel's year. It has been revealed that it is the film which pushed Diesel ahead of his Fate of the Furious co-star Dwayne The Rock Johnson on the list.

In addition to these two major titles Diesel appeared in, he also provided the voice for the beloved walking tree character Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This brought his total box office haul for 2017 movies to a whopping $1.6 billion.

Fate of the Furious grossed—$1.163 billion worldwide, while Xxx3 Return of Xander cage grossed almost $400 million.  

The Rock hauled in $1.5 billion this year. The chunk of this coming from the latest, insanely successful Fast and Furious release. 

In third place on this list is a surprise new comer—Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot, who appared in the stand alone super heroine film as well as DC's movie Justice League.

The dazzling actress who blew the world away with a critically acclaimed performance as Wonder Woman, was at her very best in the movie, which has spawned an upcoming sequel starring the beauty yet again. The first movie grossed an impressive $822 million. While Justice league made $646.7 million. 

She comes in third on the list with $1.4 billion in 2017 movie haul. 

It won't be a big surprise if Diesel continues his run for the top spot next year. The action star has two upcoming Avengers films in the pipelines as well as a pair of Fast & Furious movies. In addition to that, another Riddick movie is in the pipelines, and a fourth installment of the xXx franchise is not too far away. 

Up next for the actor? Vin Diesel's next film scheduled for release is Avengers: Infinity War, where he will voice Groot once again.

He is probably the busiest actor to the world right now,  and he has the box office numbers to prove it.
