Pitt, Brad: Movie Star, Bankable Actor at the Box-Office

World War Z, Brad Pitt’s once-troubled zombie apocalypse movie, has grossed $502.3 million at the worldwide box office, the star’s biggest total to date.

Films available in 3-D have somewhat inflated tallies, as ticket prices are higher.  Even so, half a billion dollars is a pretty sum, but it’s certainly nowhere near all-time record holders like “Avatar,” which raked in over $2.7 billion at the international box office.

“World War Z” lands at a somewhat unremarkable 112th slot on Box Office Mojo’s all-time international chart. (Domestically, it falls to No. 140.)

Pitt has a number of heavy hitters to his name. “Troy” ($497.4 million), “Mr. & Mrs. Smith” ($478.2 million) and “Ocean’s Eleven” ($450.7 million) all cleared the $400 million hurdle, with favorites like “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” “Seven” and “Inglorious Basterds” not too far behind.
