Secure The Bag: Letitia Wright Named Highest Box Office Earner Of 2018

January 2nd 2019

Move aside, Scarlett Johansson! There's a new top-earner in Hollywood and her name is Letitia Wright!

The newly-minted Marvel star became 2018's it girl, and with that came big box office love. Fandango says Wright became 2018's highest box office earner thanks to her roles in Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, of course, but also her roles in films like Ready Player One and The Commuter. According to their calculations, Wright earned a whopping $1.55 billion dollars, topping her fellow Infinity War and Black Panther castmates Chadwick Boseman, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba and Sebastian Stan, who all brought in a total $1.38 billion.

Gurira even topped other usual suspects on box office lists: Samuel L. Jackson, who brought in $1.29 billion and Chris Pratt whose box office totals came to $1.1 billion. Josh Brolin rounded out the group with $1 billion.

Wright responded to the news just how we would expect her to: with humility and real-world humor. As she alluded to in her tweet, apparently all that money she brought in for Disney hasn't reached her checkbook yet.

Duke responded to Wright's tweet asking for his share of money as well.

Disney, you heard Shuri and M'Baku: Pay them their billions!
