Actress and outspoken Christian Letitia Wright was the highest box-office earning star of the year.
Known for her supporting role in the 2018 record-breaking blockbuster hit “Black Panther,” Wright out-earned her action-hero cast members, according to Fandango new report.
Being named the “highest box-office earning star” of the 2018 means that all of Wright’s film’s this year, drew a lot of people to the theater. The Guyanese-born British actress plays Princess Shuri, the little sister of King T’Challa — the main character of “Black Panther” in her breakout role. She then reprised the role in the film “Avengers: Infinity War,” and also appeared in “Ready Player One” and “The Commuter.”
Wright managed to beat out her Marvel costars Chadwick Boseman, Winston Duke, Danai Gurira, Florence Kasumba and Sebastian Stan. The 25-year-old also surpassed Hollywood heavyweights, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Pratt and Josh Brolin.
Fandango’s “highest box office earning” list is calculated by how much money the actors’ movies made, not how much they were paid. Wright joked about that distinction on Twitter.
“Dope dope,” she wrote, adding. “Just deposit that amount into my bank account.”
“Black Panther” is currently #9 on the top grossing movies of all time list and was nominated for a Best Motion Picture – Drama Golden Globe.
In the days that followed and leading up to the new year, Wright shared messages of thanksgiving to God. She referenced Malachi 3:10 which says, “See if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
“2018! I can’t even put into words my gratitude for all that has happened this year. This scripture sums it up,” she wrote. “God opened a floodgate of blessings! I’m in awe!”
