WB’s “Dune” opens on October 21st and features one of the most star-studded ensembles of the year. Here are my picks for my favorite films of each of the actors:
He was fine in “Lady Bird” and “Beautiful Boy”, but my Chalamet selection has to be his Oscar nominated breakthrough performance in “Call Me By Your Name”.
She’s delivered solid work in the “Mission: Impossible” films and “The Greatest Showman” (we’ll come back to that musical in a bit). But I’m gonna go with the underrated sci-fi thriller “Life”.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” is the film that made him a household name, followed by the largely overlooked “A Most Violent Year”. As much as I wanted “The Card Counter” to be my new Isaac top choice, I’ve still got to go with “Llewyn”. (The fantastic “Annihilation” was mostly a showcase for Natalie Portman.)
He’s the best part of the Coen Bros.’ “Hail, Caesar!” and obviously Thanos is an iconic role. But he knocked Young Agent K out of the park in “Men in Black 3”.
Those “Mamma Mia!” movies are fun. “Good Will Hunting” is great too.
He crushed it as Drax in the first “Guardians of the Galaxy” and has smart comedic chops in action comedy “My Spy”. (And you thought I was gonna say “Stuber”.)
STEPHEN MCKINLEY HENDERSON
He’s been in a number of excellent ensembles, from “Fences” and “Lady Bird” to “Lincoln”, “Tower Heist” and “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close”.
She was a cool choice to voice Lola Bunny in “Space Jam: A New Legacy” and had a strong 2017 with “Spider-Man: Homecoming” and “The Greatest Showman”.
“45 Years”. Her stares. Her speeches. That finale scene. “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”. Wow.
He was game to voice Aquaman in “The LEGO Movie 2”. Props for that.
He knows how to play a villain well, whether in “Skyfall” or “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”.
