Prior to all of the very successful Brad Pitt movies lining the shelves at your local video store, the storied actor had a somewhat less than gloried beginning. In fact, the out-and-out Hollywood hunk of the decade, began his amazing movie career in the late 1980's with several bit parts in very low budget films.
In 1991, all of that would change with the release of the surprisingly successful Thelma and Louise, a fast moving Bonnie and Clyde like crime spree movie. In Brad Pitt’s minor role in Thelma and Louise Brad would bare his body to the world, elevating him to the status of Hollywood hunk and a hot commodity.
Very early in Brad Pitt’s acting career, he occasionally got acting parts in an assortment of TV shows like the very popular TV soap opera, Another World. Since then, fans have come to expect Brad Pitt movies to be released on a somewhat semi-annual schedule. In fact, Brad has either starred in or produced his own movies at a rate of at least 2 films per year for the last few years.
Aside from his role as Jesse James in the 2007 film entitled “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford”, Brad Pitt’s movies have all been very successful during the past 6 years. During that period, every Brad Pitt movie except for the aforementioned Jesse James film showed a worldwide gross of over 100 million dollars.
Between the years 2001 when he starred in “Ocean's Eleven” and 2005 with the release of “Troy”, Brad Pitt movies would suffered somewhat of a dry spell. In “Troy”, Brad portrayed the lead role of the Greek hero Achilles. Even though Troy’s budget was almost $200 million, the Brad Pitt movie was a box office success, grossing over $495 million.
In the past couple of decades, there has been more than 35 Brad Pitt movies made, grossing well over $4.5 Billion worldwide. With Brad Pitt movies grossing around $54 on average, it was easy to see how the Hollywood heartthrob could command a very high price for starring in a film.
Four Brad Pitt movies during the past decade have been directed by Steven Soderbergh, including “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” and the “Ocean's” trilogy.
The most recent Brad Pitt movie entitled, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” (Dec 25, 2008) has received 13 Oscar nominations and already grossed well over $100 million. The 2008 film “Burn after Reading” is yet one more Brad Pitt movie that has done well financially.
For you Brad Pitt fans looking toward the future, here are a list of Brad Pitt movies that he is scheduled to work on. These future Brad Pitt films include: “Inglorious Bastards” (2009), “The Tree of Life” (2009), “The Sparrow” (2010), “The Lost City of Z” (2010), “Moneyball” (2011) and “The Odyssey” (2012).
Brad Pitt certainly has come a long way in his illustrious acting career. From acting in low budget movies where he never got credit or had brief cameo roles to blockbuster films released throughout the world, Brad Pitt has proven that he is more than a handsome face and body, but that he is an accomplished actor who is also very versatile. Brad Pitt movies are as popular with men as they are with women and we are all looking forward for more.
