Top-earning couple of Hollywood

Top-earning couples of Hollywood

A study of the romantic pairs on-screen appearing in at least two films over the last 20 years reveals interesting revelations going by the box office results. This list is brought out by Forbes.

The top position in the list goes to Peter Parker and Mary Jane also called Tobey Maguire and Kirsten Dunset. Their three movies for the Spider Man netted a grand $2.5 million, the most lucrative film franchise so far.

Coming next are Leonardo DeCaprio and Kate Winslet, the couple that had won the hearts of the moviegoers in the Titanic, which everyone knows grossed 1.8 billion in box office revenues.

Interestingly, the study reveals a downtrend in fiscal facts as regards box office grosses from a whopping $110 million in 2003 to as low as $44 million in 2008.
The findings also reveal that while about 300 romantic comedies produced since 1995 earned an average of $26 million, action films earned an average of $53 million out of 445 moves during the same period since 1995, which makes one wonder if the romantic comedies are losing their sheen in the glamorous cine world. The romantic comedies are really hard to get now-a-days as compared to the incredibly large number of such films of 40s and 50s.
Continuing on the same trend of sliding grosses cartoon films, Good Luck Chuck produced in 2008 earned on $59 million world-wide, which indicates a trend towards cruder punch and higher returns.
