We’re talkin’ ‘bout chemistry; two actors who are great separately, but when you put them together onscreen, they’re dynamite. Think Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in the Lethal Weapon movies, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker in the Rush Hour series, and Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock in The Heat. Now we have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in The Hitman’s Bodyguard; Deadpool meets the bad… well, you remember what was engraved on Jackson’s wallet in Pulp Fiction, right?
Here are other examples of movies you’ll find in the Box that are master classes in screen chemistry.
What happens in the suburbs stays in the suburbs. SNL legends Will Farrell and Amy Poehler are a sure bet as a couple who lose their daughter’s college tuition and turn their home into an underground casino.
This animated movie makes Batman fun again. The voice cast reunites the stars of the 1960s “Batman” TV series voices, Adam West as the Caped Crusader and Bert Ward as the Boy Wonder. PLUS, Julie Newmar as Catwoman. To quote anchorman Rod Bergundy, it’s kind of a big deal.
This ain’t no La La Land when Ryan Gosling, a low-rent private eye in 1970s Los Angeles, teams up with Russell Crowe, an enforcer who hurts first and asks questions later, to find a missing adult film actress.
Kevin Hart and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson are most likely to succeed in this action comedy about a former high school hot shot (Hart) dreading his 20th high school reunion. Things liven up with the return of Robby (Johnson), a formerly overweight nerd who is now a super-buff CIA agent who needs his former friend’s help.
Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn (in her first movie in 15 years) are an inspired team as a free-spirited daughter and a cautious over-protective mother who vacation together in South America. What can go wrong? The title will give you a clue.
