    2017: Matt Damon- Three films, three flops (The Great Wall, Suburbicon, Downsizing). Plus, being exposed as an active collaborator in covering up Weinstein’s crimes.

    2017: Russell Crowe- A gigantic flop that earned him a Razzie nomination (The Mummy), and being exposed as an active collaborator in covering up Weinstein’s crimes.

    Like I mentioned in my post, Jude Law’s “recovery” already happened with Sherlock Holmes. It was never that bad for him again, although it was probably thanks to that whole 2005-2006 thing that made Hollywood not take risks with him anymore. So now he’s in a position to do things like Fantastic Beasts.

    2004 was a shitty year for Jude Law. Somebody tried to propose him for the Best Year thread and I immediately laughed when I read that. That was the year of his extreme overexposure and it was flop after flop. Alfie Sky Captain I Heart Huckabees Closer The Aviator Lemony Snicket’s 6 high profile films, 3 flops, one voice over work in a film that underperformed, one cameo so he can’t get credit for it, and for Closer he didn’t really get anything. All of this ended up making Chris Rock joke about him at the Oscars. Sean Penn defended him because they were working together on….one of the biggest flops of all time: All the King’s Men. Which is one of three other flops he followed 2004 with. I don’t think he ever recovered. He’s had the Sherlock Holmes films, but those didn’t happen until 5 years latsr. He’s still of course a very important actor, but his reputation really got ruined by all of this.

    I’m pretty sure playing Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts series is a recovery.

    Sure, still like Benito said, between that disaster of 2004 and Fantastic Beasts how many did he need to recover? Also, he returned to work on stage (where he got raves and a full rediscovering for his acting talent) when the main film roles were dry up. Not for game, Chris Rock came with that joke during the 2004 Oscar ceremony.
