Among Hollywood Chris,which one had the best 2017?


What a year to be a handsome movie star named Chris in Hollywood. (Yes, I realize that I said something similar in last year's Chris ranking, but the preeminence of famous Chrises simply cannot be overstated.) Evans, Hemsworth, Pratt, and Pine each had one significant cinematic release in 2017, as well as extremely meme-able moments and personal milestones, but which Chris reigned supreme? There can be only one.

Last year's champ, Evans, faltered at the box office with his heartfelt but ultimately forgettable indie, Gifted. And with Pine, Hemsworth, and Pratt with a superhero flick a piece, it's truly any Chris's year. But remember: There's more to this Chris-quation than box office performance. It's a science.

In addition to box-office earnings, I'll be analyzing several other factors, including critical reception, general life choices, meme-ability, and social media presence. Scoring is simple: Each Chris will receive a score in each category, ranging from highest (400) to lowest (100). So let's get back to work:

BOX OFFICE:

PINE (400): When it comes to box office numbers, Wonder Woman is the No. 2 domestic earner of the year with $412 million. Pine may not have been the face of the film — that honor belongs to our wonderful future president Gal Gadot — but he takes second billing as American spy Steve Trevor.

PRATT (300): Guardians of the Galaxy 2 made money, but with a $389 million cume, Star-Lord and company couldn't catch Wonder Woman at the domestic box office. (They did, however, surpass Diana of Themyscira's global totals.) The sequel also did noticeably better than the first film's $773 million worldwide haul. After a rough 2016, it looks like Pratt still has the magic touch, Passengers be damned.

HEMSWORTH (200): Taika Waititi's hilarious entry in the Marvel canon, Thor: Ragnarok, not only earned rave reviews, but it also scored Hemsworth (and his chiseled physique) his biggest Thor box office yet with an impressive $307 million domestic total.

Marvel Studios
EVANS (100): Last year, Evans was the Box Office King with Captain America: Civil War (the highest-grossing movie of 2016), but this year, his heartfelt indie Gifted — not to be confused with Fox's Gifted, a show about mutants — wracked up a total of $24.8 million at the domestic box office. With an estimated budget of $7 million, that performance isn't terrible, but it's also not the kind of money you'd think the face of Marvel could bring in. And no, I'm not counting his memorable cameo in Spider-Man: Homecoming because he wasn't part of the marketing for the film. (Don't worry. He'll be back to collect all of your money next year with Avengers: Infinity War, which also stars Pratt and Hemsworth. 2018 will bring us closer to the Chris Singularity.)

CRITICAL RECEPTION:

HEMSWORTH (400): Let's just say 2017 was the year Hemsworth usurped Pratt for the title of Funny Chris. For his third solo theatrical outing as the mighty Thor, Hemsworth is better than ever. Anyone who has seen Hemsworth's improvisational skills at work in 2016's Ghostbusters knows that the Aussie is unfairly funny, and Waititi — known for his own absurdist humor — really tapped into his star's comedic side. Hemsworth leans into the character's inherent dullness and instead imbues him with a comical self-awareness that was previously hard to find in the Marvel Comics deity.

Not to mention, Thor also reunited with his mortal roommate Darryl for another hilarious Team Thor mockumentary this year, written and directed by Waititi. Thor is many things: a hero, a god, an Avenger, and a pretty decent brother. One thing he's not? A good roommate.

EVANS (300): With Gifted, Evans proved that he wasn't going to let himself be boxed in by Hollywood. In this Marc Webb family drama Evans gives such an engaging and warm performa.
