2017 was an excellent year for Vin Diesel, a very good year, just how good was it? Somewhat surprisingly, Vin Diesel is the highest-grossing actor at the box office in 2017. He comes in first having beat other stars like Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Wonder Woman Star Gal Gadot.
The movie that earned him the most, of course, was The Fate of the Furious, the eighth movie in the Fast and the Furious franchise and the first without Paul Walker which brought in a total of $1.23 billion worldwide, which was the second highest grossing movie this year. The only film that brought in more was Beauty and The Beast with $1.263 billion and since The Last Jedi is still only sitting at 745 million at the time of writing it looks like there were no other significant contenders this year.
The other two ladies to make the list were Emma Watson for Beauty and the Beast, and The Circle (even though it flopped), and of course Daisey Ridley made the list with Star Wars: The Last Jedi (which is as we stated only at 747 million so far). Along with Daisy, John Boyega rounds out the list at #10.
