DiCaprio tops Forbes’ list of highest-earning actors




Leonardo Dicaprio

According to Forbes, Leonardo DiCaprio jumped from fifth to first place this year, stealing the spot from Johnny Depp.

DiCaprio’s estimated $77 million in earnings reflect the success of his two big films, “Shutter Island” and “Inception,” which earned a combined $1.2 billion.

Bumped down a peg (although it’s hard to feel bad for him), Depp moved from first to second place with earnings of $50 million, down from his $75 million recorded in Forbes’ previous list.

“Grown Ups” star Adam Sandler ($40 million) and Will Smith ($36 million) were also ranked high, taking third and fourth places on the list.

Tom Cruise brings up the rear at No. 10, pulling in $22 million in the same period, Forbes estimates.

But as if you didn’t need proof Hollywood is a man’s world, Cruise’s earnings would rank him at No. 5 on the highest-paid actresses list for the same year, just between Reese Witerspoon ($28 million) and Julia Roberts ($20 million).

The 10 top actors earned an estimated $375 million between May 2010 and May 2011.

To come up with its numbers Forbes writes that it talked to agents, lawyers, producers and industry sources.

Here’s the list:

1. Leonardo DiCaprio – $77 million

2. Johnny Depp – $50 million

3. Adam Sandler – $40 million

4. Will Smith – $36 million

5. Tom Hanks – $35 million

6. Ben Stiller – $34 million

7. Robert Downy Jr. – $31 million

8. Mark Wahlberg – $28 million

9. Tim Allen – $22 million

10. Tom Cruise – $22 million



‘The Dark Knight Rises’ sets box-office record





Despite the tragedy in Colorado, where James Holmes is accused of fatally shooting 12 people and wounding dozens more at a midnight showing of “The Dark Knight Rises,” audiences haven’t shied away from seeing the movie.

According to the studio, the film broke a box office record in its opening weekend: It earned $160,887,295, the biggest 2-D opening ever, ahead of its 2008 predecessor, “The Dark Knight.” The film achieved the third-largest opening ever, after the 3-D films “The Avengers” and “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2.”

Despite the impressive $160.9 million opening, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ fell somewhat below box office expectations going into the weekend, which ranged from $170 million to $200 million.

“Clearly, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ was on everyone’s minds,” said Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for who specializes in box office. “I think the American public showed they were not going to be sacred away from the movie theater by the actions of a lunatic.”

Dergarabedian called the film’s opening “extremely impressive given the tragic events that unfolded on Friday.”

Despite the impressive numbers, many people stayed away from the film as vigils and mourning continues in Colorado and across the country. A few copycat threats were reported across the country, according to the Local news agencies:

In Southern California, a man at a Sunday afternoon showing of the film was arrested after witnesses said he made threats and alluded to the Aurora shooting when the movie didn’t start.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were called to a cinema complex in Norwalk after moviegoers said 52-year-old Clark Tabor shouted: “I should go off like in Colorado.” They said he then asked: “Does anybody have a gun?”

A security guard saw Tabor with a backpack on his knees in the second row, but deputies who searched the bag, the theater and its surrounding area did not find any weapon.

Ultimately, like all the movies, “The Dark Knight Rises” is all about The One: If the Batman trilogy has celebrated anything, it has been the unfettered power of the individual over an ungrateful rabble, a vigilante ethic that may have gone underground in “The Dark Knight” but that has never been critically questioned. Viewers will have plenty of time to argue those philosophical implications now that Nolan’s trilogy has wrapped.
