Forbes has ranked the top movie producers of 2019 so far and reveals that Ridley Scott is in the number two spot.
The director, writer, and producer, known for Alien, The Martian, and Blade Runner, has had an incredible year so far. His films Blade Runner 2049 and The Martian were both box office hits and earned him a nomination for an Oscar. This year has also seen his films Dogma and The Expeditions emerge through post-production.
As 2019 draws to a close, it’s time to reflect on the movies that caught our attention this year. Many of the biggest and most noteworthy blockbusters were released in 2019 so it would be a shame to miss out on some of the best films of the year. We’ll tell you what movies are worth watching and where you can find them so you can add them to your collection.
List Of The Biggest Blockbuster Movies Released In 2019
The top of Forbes’ 2019 movie producer rankings is occupied by the studios responsible for some of the biggest and most influential films of the year. Each of these movies hit theaters in the last quarter of 2019, so you can expect to see a lot more on this list as we head into 2020.
The films are ordered in terms of their Rotten Tomatoes score.
In terms of sheer volume, Black Widow (2020) and The Rapper (2020) hold the number one and two spots respectively. Both of these titles feature prominently in the upcoming Disney+ original series The Mandalorian, so be sure to check them out. We also recommend The Kid with a 100 Bullets (2019) and Unstoppable (2020) as must-see movies for anyone who enjoys large-scale destruction and high-energy explosions. If you haven’t heard of The Kid with a 100 Bullets, it’s probably time you should have. The film is considered among the best adapted comics of all time, and the 2019 film is already being talked about as a possible contender for the 2020 Oscars.
List Of The Best-Loved Blockbuster Movies Of All Time
Actors, directors, producers, and other assorted film personalities have weighed in on this topic over the years, so it’s time for us to check in and see what all the commotion is about.
The Top 100 Movies That Are Rated A++ By Critics is an annual list published by the New York Times in which they rank the top 100 films based on the reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes. In 2019, they expanded their list to include video games, anime, and manga. This year’s number one movie is Avengers: Endgame, the culmination of 10 years of superhero movie mayhem. The film reportedly spent $400 million simply to make its special effects look as realistic as possible. The second film on this list is Back to You, a throwback to the golden era of romantic comedy starring Rosie Perez and Marilu Henner. Other movies on this list include It (2018), The King’s Speech (2010), and Sleepless in Seattle (1990).
This list is a great spot to start when it comes to discovering movies you’ll enjoy and want to see more of. We can’t mention a movie on this list that you shouldn’t see at least once. These are some of the most beloved and iconic films of all time. Seeing as how many of these are on the Top 100 Movies list, it’s clear that film fans have a lot to look forward to in terms of new movie content in the coming year. Whether you’re a fan of Marvel Studios or DC Comics, there’s something here for you.
What Are Ridley Scott’s Newest Projects?
Whether we’re talking about upcoming films or established auteurs, it’s always fascinating to see what projects directors are working on next. From Gucci’s creative director Alessandro Michele’s first film as a director (and the first movie ever to use his unique scent, SMA), to Jeeja’s documentary on street art, we can always expect to see interesting projects coming from the studios of notable directors. Recently, Ridley Scott was featured in Vanity Fair’s New Establishment list, celebrating the rise of a new generation of Hollywood elite.
The director recently wrapped principal photography on The Old Man and the Girl, a romantic comedy he wrote and will direct. The film is set in New York City and stars Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake. The movie explores a romance between an idealistic millennial and an old-school movie mogul. It also stars Anika Noni Rose, who has a massive role in the film. You can read a bit of the script here and watch a teaser here.
Scott was also recently seen in theaters for the first time in years with the premiere of Blade Runner 2049. The film, which he directed, co-wrote, and produced, was met with positive reviews and debuted at the top of the box office. Ahead of the film’s premiere, Scott was featured in Vogue’s 2020 New Establishment issue, wearing a floral dress by Gucci.
Blade Runner 2049 marks the return of the iconic Blade Runner series to theaters. Since the first film’s premiere in 1982, fans have been waiting for the next installment. The film will surely be followed by more Blade Runner movies as it garners such a devoted fanbase. For those who still have yet to see Blade Runner, now is the right time to remedy that situation. The first Blade Runner had to settle for the then-unknown Keanu Reeves at the top of his game. Now that he’s become a big-name Hollywood star, we’re sure to see him take on the mantle of Rick Deckard once again.
