The Numbers Bankability Index™

The Numbers Bankability Index estimates how much someone adds in value to the film industry each year based on analysis of the Hollywood Creative Graph™, a network of over 100,000 people with over 4 million connections that represent all the films they have worked on together. By using an analytical technique called graph analysis, the Bankability Index measures the influence of each person in the Hollywood Creative Graph, which we translate below into an estimate of the annual value added by the 40 biggest players in the industry today. In simple terms, if the film business returned to the studio system that existed in the 1950s, this is how much we would pay everyone each year.

The Numbers Bankability Index Top 250

The complete top 250 people, ranked by worldwide and domestic box office, and by the value they bring to each movie. See our Top 250 Edition page for more details and to manage your subscription.

This chart is based on the worldwide box office earnings for every film a person has worked on, adjusted to reflect their performance over roughly the past decade. It is therefore a reflection of the most consistent performers over time. We have other versions of the Index that reflect more recent performance at the box office. Please contact us research@the-numbers.com for more details.

Does the Index suggest that people are overpaid?

Not exactly. The fundamental goal behind building The Numbers Bankability Index is to assess the value someone would bring to an average non-franchise film — regardless of whether they are in a lead role, or even an acting role. It looks at the value each person brings to a film as part of a team.

This is different from deciding how much they should be paid for a specific role, particularly in established franchises. Johnny Depp, for example, is measured as being worth about $7 million to an average movie (like, for example, The Rum Diary), but is clearly worth far more playing Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Our Under the Covers article shows how we go about assessing the value of Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow.

The system can be applied to any segment of the movie industry: domestic box office, indie films, specific genres and budget ranges, and to individual film projects. For example, we can provide an analysis of the technical people who have the most success in a particular budget range, the "hot" actors and actresses who have been driving domestic box office results over the past 3 years, or screenwriters who specialize in a particular genre. The list is virtually limitless, and we will be happy to discuss the specifics of your project and see how we can help. For more information, see
