Movie Power Rankings: Hollywood remembers Philip Seymour Hoffman

This week’s Movie Power Rankings begins on a tragic note, as Hollywood and the rest of the world mourn the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman, one of the top film actors of his generation. Hoffman turned in notable performances in dozens of films and was a regular fixture in the films of Paul Thomas Anderson. He picked up a Best Actor Oscar for his work in 2005’s “Capote.” He will be greatly missed by moviegoers. Some of his contemporaries responded to the bad news, including “Almost Famous” writer-director Cameron Crowe, plus George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, James Franco, and others. 

As for the rest of this week’s list…

1. Philip Seymour Hoffman (Last week: Not ranked)
Here are our ten favorite Hoffman performances .

2. “Man of Steel 2” (Last week: Not ranked)
Lex Luthor in the house, and he looks like Jesse Eisenberg. But is he playing the same Lex Luthor we all already know?

3. “Thor 3” (Last week: Not ranked)
It’s happening sometime after 2015’s “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” and now it has a screenwriter.
4. “Amazing Spider-Man 2” (Last week: Not ranked)
Spidey swung into action during the Super Bowl, facing down like a hundred supervillains. Too bad he couldn’t save the Broncos.

Cap also made a Super Bowl appearance, and MPR is confident in saying that “Winter Soldier” looks like one of the very best Marvel moves yet.
6. “A Million Ways to Die in the West” (Last week: Not ranked)
Seth MacFarlane’s raunchy western comedy has a red band trailer that takes aim at genre conventions while providing plenty of potty humor.

The aca-sequel will be directed by co-star Elizabeth Banks, and now has a release date.
8. “Noah” (Last week: Not ranked)
More Super Bowl movie madness, this time send from above, as nature-lover Russell Crowe faces floods and angry neighbors. More fun than Sunday School.

Robert Pattinson taps his inner “Mad Max” in a trailer for the post-apocalyptic drama from the director of “Animal Kingdom.”
