Do You Ever See Movies Based Solely on the Cast?


A recent Variety article stated that the specialty films this Fall include "some disturbing and bleak storylines that will need careful marketing at time when moviegoers might want to escape the real-life reality of a failing US economy." Although many of these films feature some big names (Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, Sean Penn, etc.) apparently "star names don't necessarily count as much as they used to."

Then again, I know plenty of people who will see any movie whatsoever that features their favorite actor. What about you? Will you see a movie — even if you're not sure you'll like the story or the genre — based solely on the cast members?

Yes, for actors I know will give me my monies worth. But I'll see a movie for the director and I have some favoites like Paul Thomas Anderson, Steven Speilberg (with the exception of Hook) I knew that movie was going to be bad.

Not only will I go see, but I will also buy, anything with James McAvoy in it. Ever since I saw him in The Last King of Scotland, he's been on my watch list. I also will see pretty much anything with Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Amy Adams, Meryl Streep, and Ellen Page. I love watching these talented ladies transform themselves into different roles.

forgot lovely Keira Knightley, but she earned my love solely with her movies. not her private life like the others. Lohan, Jolie and Pitt - I want to see them because of tabloids, Isla Fisher and Jeefrey Dean Morgan - cause they're super hot and Keira Knightley because her movies are actually good. And I love the accent.

It's a yes and no for me. Sometimes I like to see what my favorite actors are doing, like for instance, I think Joseph Gordon Levitt is a really amazing actor so I've seen all the indie movies that he's done. But at the same time, I think Megan Fox is really hot and I like her, but I don't necessarily want to see her act. LOL. But actually there is a movie I've seen recently where I was interested in it because this actor Justin Hartley was supposed to be in, and I love Smallville, but he ended up dropping out of the movie and being a part of the featurette. Anywho, I ended checking out the movie, it's called Chronicles of Hollow Earth: The Next Race, has anyone ever heard of it? It's a really interesting sci fi flick, I recommend it to anyone who's into like Dune or Firefly and stuff. You can watch trailers for it at youtube.com/thenextrace it's quite cool.

Sometimes. Though I don't really go to the theater anymore (too pricey and usually left feeling disappointed in a film. However I did want to see Tropic Thunder and Dark Knight :sad: ) I usually rent films now. Names I would go see a movie for are Johnny Depp, Reese Witherspoon, George Clooney, Kate Winslet, Adam Sandler, Sandra Bullock, and a few others. When the movie "The Covenant" came on TV I watched it just for Steven Strait, Chace Crawford and Taylor Kitsch ( :love: ) though the actual movie wasn't so bad,lol. I will also watch any film by Tim Burton and Joel & Ethan Coen.

Yes I will see almost any movie stars Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Kate Winslet, Gerard Butler, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Rachel Weisz, Natalie Portman, or Audrey Hepburn (her older movies, I mean).

A specific actor or cast isn't enough draw for me. No one performer can carry a movie if the plot/dialogue isn't there. Now, I will definitely see all movies that certain writers do...Charlie Kaufman, for example, is my hero.

Jackson, Michael Douglas (I just don't like him), Wesley Snipes,Some of the people I don't like are in movies with people I do like like Halle and Hugh, but I really love Hugh so I pay'd to see X-men 3.
