In order to calculate the rankings for the top-grossing actor of 2017, Forbes added up the global ticket sales of major actors' films as of December 26, 2017, using data from Box Office Mojo. They didn't use animated films and only included actors who were top-billed or who had the most screen time. Now, given that description, we're sure a few names come to mind.

Turns out, however, this list was a bit more surprising than we anticipated. For example, we didn't realize just how much of a punch franchises like The Fast and the Furious still pack. We mean, c'mon, those movies have been around fo-ev-er. Are they still bringing in the big bucks? Yes, indeed, they are! Subsequently, so are the leading roles.

Top-Grossing Actors, 2017

10. John Boyega — $815 million

9. Chris Hemsworth — $845 million

8. Chris Pratt — $864 Million

7. Tom Holland — $888 Million

6. Daisy Ridley — $1.08 Billion

5. Johnny Depp — $1.1 Billion

4. Emma Watson — $1.3 Billion

3. Gal Gadot — $ 1.4 Billion

2. Dwayne Johnson — $1.5 Billion

Vin Diesel — $1.6 Billion

See what we're saying, guys? Freakin' Vin Diesel came in before Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot? We hardly would have ever guessed that. Then again, box offices can be fickle beasts! There really is no telling what will do well nowadays!
