Wright reigns supreme.
Letitia Wright is a queen, but a year ago, the world had little idea of who she was. When Black Panther dropped in February though, everything changed for the young star. She followed that appearance with spots in other high grossing films such as Avengers: Infinity War and Ready Player One. The catalog of films that Wright has starred in has earned her the number one spot on Fandango's Box Office earner list.
Wright sits atop the list with $1.55 billion, having appeared in Black Panther ($700,059,566), Avengers: Infinity War ($678,815,482), Ready Player One ($137,690,172), and The Commuter (36,343,858). The number two spot was a tie between Chadwick Boseman, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba, and Sebastian Stan with $1.38 billion. Samuel Jackson takes the number 3 spot with $1.29 billion, Chris Pratt came next with $1.1 billion, and Josh Brolin grabbed the number 5 position with $1 billion. As you can see, Marvel ruled the box office.
Wright responded to Fandango's announcement with a tweet suggesting that she would like to see that money in her possession. "Dope dope. just deposit that amount into my bank account 👀🤔," joked the young actress. Fandango's list only compiles the actors and actresses that starred in the highest grossing movies, for the highest paid stars, head here.
