Back in the 1980s, Harrison Ford became an international superstar by headlining two of the biggest franchises of all time, "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones." And in the '90s, it was Samuel L. Jackson who became a ubiquitous presence in just about every major blockbuster, from "Pulp Fiction" to "Die Hard with a Vengeance." So which of today's stars can boast a similar resume?

Death. Taxes. Keith Richards. Attractive girls being inexplicably interested in Wilmer Valderrama. And characters with vaguely British accents in fantasy or historical fiction movies.
We are brought up with the understanding that these things are the lone certainties in life. Today, we'd like to closely examine that last guarantee. Presenting 10 fantasy movies featuring characters with vaguely British accents who do not need to have British accents.
(Editor's Note: Yes, we know Ancient Greece and Rome were very real places, but "Gladiator" and "300" are hardly non-fiction accounts of them. So... humor us.)

Normally, wrath is something you try to avoid. But today, we're turning logic on its head, because thanks to our brand new giveaway, you'll definitely want to feel the "Wrath of the Titans" on Blu-ray.
Now that's what we call legendary. Get More »
"The Hunger Games" phenomenon continues to dominate the box office — and pop culture in general — as according to Hollywood.com the year's biggest film crushed the competition again, taking in $61.1 million over the weekend en route to a staggering 10-day total of $251 million.
New releases "Wrath of the Titans" and "Mirror Mirror" were expected to put up a challenge, but thanks to "The Hunger Games," neither movie stood a chance; "Wrath of the Titans" finished in second place with a $34.2 million debut, while "Mirror Mirror" earned a disappointing $19 million.
So just how high can "The Hunger Games" go before this is over? For the full box office report, including figures for returning favorites "21 Jump Street" and "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," head to Hollywood.com.
According to Zeus (or at least the version played by Liam Neeson), godhood is a bit of a bummer. You have to be responsible for all creation, immortality is depressing, and being worshipped is exhausting. Apparently, all gods really want is to be human.
Well, we’re not buying it. Nowhere in "Wrath of the Titans" do any gods offer to give up eternal youth, superpowers, the sprawling temple in the clouds or their unworldly good looks. Instead, they seem riddled with insecurity, determined to strike down any man, woman, or child who is too good looking. (Don’t have a good hair day around the gods. You might find yourself sacrificed to a Kraken.)
We’ll spend our weekend worshipping at "Wrath of the Titans," and the rest of our days admiring these 12 gorgeous immortals. Devotion has never been so easy.
First there was fighting and we had "Clash of the Titans." Now comes anger and we have "Wrath of the Titans." When next year's English requirements force the Hellenistic Gods to take Poetry 101 maybe we'll have "Plath of the Titans."
And I, for one, look forward to it. This franchise (yeah, it's a franchise now) isn't exactly top-shelf, but it serves a need – the need to see enormous, villainous computer-generated beasts wreak havoc on Mediterranean fishing villages. Hey, once you get hooked it's hard to kick.
I won't lie and tell you that "Wrath of the Titans" is replete with clever plot twists, sharp dialogue or, you know, good acting, but it's got a list of awesome creatures as high as the mightiest doric column. Let's take a look at who lays in wait. Get More »
It’s been a couple years since they battled on screen in what became a huge blockbuster, 2010's "Clash of the Titans." Now, real-life friends Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes are reprising their roles as Greek gods in "Wrath of the Titans." Neeson plays Zeus, king of the gods; Fiennes is Hades, his brother and god of the underworld.
These two acting giants first matched wits (and handsomeness) in "Schindler’s List," which scored them a ream of awards nominations and established both as leading men to be reckoned with.
Both were born citizens of the British Empire. Each has taken a different path in film stardom of late, with Neeson known for his recent man-on-a-mission roles and Fiennes renowned for his villainous turn as Lord Voldemort in the "Harry Potter" series.
You might think the 6'4" Neeson would come out on top in a matchup with the 6-foot Fiennes. But you might be surprised. Get More »
The sequel to 2010's "Clash of the Titans" is here ... with a vengeance. "Wrath of the Titans" picks up a few years after its predecessor, with Perseus (Sam Worthington) still denying his godly roots; but when his papa Zeus (Liam Neeson) is taken captive by Hades (Ralph Feinnes) in a plot to bring fearsome Titan Cronos back to power, he gets back in action faster than you can say "3-D glasses."
If you're wondering, yes, the IMAX 3-D is way good this time, and director Jonathan Liebesman does his darndest to make this new romp through Greek mythology bigger, grittier and more epic than the last. Get More »
Sometimes a little wrath can be a lot of a good thing.
The 2010 remake of "Clash of the Titans" knocked the 3-D glasses right off our faces, and from the looks of the trailer, the monsters in "Wrath of the Titans" will make the Kraken look like baby krill.
Sam Worthington reprises his role as Perseus, who just wants to live as a chill guy raising his kid, not the heroic son of Zeus who defeated the Kraken. But when Hades (Ralph Fiennes) and Ares (Edgar Ramirez) plot to overthrow Zeus (Liam Neeson) and bring Daddy Kronos and the rest of the Titans back to the throne, it's up to Perseus to save his dad and the human race from 'Titan'-ic annihilation. Guess the Greek gods tend not to get along at family reunions.
