Movie star of 2016: Scarlett Johansson or Margot Robbie?
It's the end of the year! And throughout December, we're facing-off the best songs, albums, movies, TV shows, comic books, video games, sports, pro athletes and entertainers of 2016. The "Best of 2016" is chosen by a combination of popularity, impact, acclaim, rankings and/or amount sold. But ultimately, we want you to let us know who and what from 2016 won the year in each category.
Hence, Robbie and Johansson really dominated 2016 with their multiple performances. Who's the movie star of the year?
Johansson not only starred in the blockbuster "Civil War" and the much smaller film "Hail, Caesar," but she also lend her voice to box office smashes "The Jungle Book" and "Sing." Between "Civil War" and "Hail, Caesar," Johansson brought in $1.2 billion at the box office. Also, she's one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.
While Robert Downey and Chris Evans tied as the top-grossing actors, Robbie came in at #4. Yet, her roles in "The Legend of Tarzan" and "Suicide Squad" make her more of a breakout, top-grossing movie star than Downey or Evans. She brought in a total of $1.1 billion at the box office in 2016. And let's be real—she's the best thing about "Suicide Squad." Robbie's so good, that she's starring in an upcoming "Gotham City Sirens" project as Harley Quinn.
