Down the drain

Image Forbes magazine has begun summing up the financial results of the outgoing year. Analysts of a reputable economic publication have published a list of the most unprofitable stars of the Dream Factory. According to the old tradition, Forbes journalists considered only the last three films of Hollywood actors that were released before June 1 of this year. At the same time, modest cameos, voice acting for cartoons and tapes, which were widely distributed on less than two thousand screens, were not taken into account.

Mark Wahlberg became the leader of the anti-rating this year. It is curious that he was also recognized as the highest paid actor in Hollywood. Over the past year, his revenues from advertising, his own reality show and filming in several films amounted to $ 68 million. Huge royalties saved Mark from being the worst movie star in terms of value for money. The films Patriot Day, Deepwater Horizon and Hello Dad New Year allowed the studios to return only $ 4.4 from every dollar spent on his salary.

Wahlberg risks remaining at the head of the list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood next year, because then Forbes will finally take into account the box office receipts of the films "Transformers: The Last Knight" and "Hello, Dad, New Year! 2 ". The former has the worst performance in the history of a giant robot film series, while the latter is almost $ 95 million behind the opening film of the Christmas franchise.


On the second line of the rating of the most unprofitable movie stars was Christian Bale. Recently, Hollywood studios have only received $ 6.7 from every dollar of his royalties. The scandalous drama "The Promise" dealt a serious blow to the actor's financial reputation, which earned a little more than $ 10 million at the worldwide box office with a production budget of $ 90 million.


Channing Tatum took the third place on the podium for the second year in a row, whose last three films brought studios $ 7.6 from every dollar paid to him. Forbes analysts have forgotten their own rules and credited the actor with Logan's Luck, which was released in the US in August this year. Studio Fingerprint Releasing spent about $ 50 million on filming and advertising the film, and was able to return only half of this amount.


Denzel Washington took fourth place. The actor got involved in the creation of the remake of The Magnificent Seven, which failed to shoot loudly at the box office. The fifth position is occupied by Brad Pitt, whose top three films include the disastrous war drama "Allies".
