Five Movies Have Taken $2bn At Box Office, Zoe Saldana Has Starred In Three

If you want your movie to pull in more than $2 billion (£1,527,390,000) at the box office, then it might be worth giving Zoe Saldana's agent a call, because only five movies have managed to bring in that much cash and she's starred in three of them.

As you're probably aware, Avengers: Endgame passed the $2 billion-mark just 11 days after its release, Saldana stars as Gamora.

Just last year Avengers: Infinity War also ended up taking $2.04bn (£1,557,886,800), again featuring Saldana as Gamora.

And if that's not impressive enough for you, she was also in Avatar, which made a whopping $2.7bn (£2,061,909,000), back in 2009.

A sequel for Avatar is set to hit our screens next year, so it looks as though Saldana might have another two-billion-dollar film under her belt soon.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, the other films to take over $2bn are Titanic and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, neither of which let the fact Saldana wasn't featuring hold them back.

Saldana was one of a number of Avengers stars who have recently taken to social media to share some behind-the-scenes shots taken during filming of the latest film.

Sharing a snap of an all-female superhero lunch, Saldana can be seen grinning while sat with Evangeline Lilly (The Wasp), Elizabeth Olsen (The Scarlett Witch), Brie Larson (Captain Marvel), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Letitia Wright (Shuri), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts) and Pom Klementieff (Mantis).

Last week co-star Josh Brolin shared a touching clip of a bunch of cast members singing Happy Birthday to him for his 50th.

Posting it on Instagram, Brolin wrote: "Was never able to post this before, for obvious reasons. But behind all the hate, all the misunderstandings, all the bruises, bumps, and ashes, there was this on my 50th birthday.

"So deep, deep down, even from these guys and gals, everyone has a little purple love in them."

Given that he turned 50 on 12 February 2018, Brolin had sat on this video for more than a year - due to the strict rules around spoilers surrounding the films.
