Here's a positive note. The 100 does very very well on Netflix. It pretty much has a full 5 stars which only super popular shows like Breaking Bad or The Office have. If it's doing that well, I have no fears about a season 5.

I know. They’re really happy about the netflix performance. It’s one of the most binged netflix shows, that means it’s up there with huge shows like OITNB and GOT and TWD. Which is, honestly, what The CW was going for with this weird, cultish, super dark post apocalyptic sci fi adventure.

 And you know it doesn’t hurt that Rolling Stone named it one of the best Sci Fi shows of all time. People watch the show, and they make their own decisions about, having nothing to do with the fandom and the shipwars and the hype that we all hear on tumblr and twitter. 

Dwayne Johnson Named World’s Highest Paid Actor

It’s official - Dwayne Johnson is the highest paid actor in the world.

According to Forbes, the 44-year-old ‘Fast & Furious’ star is 2016’s highest paid actor in the world… managing to muscle out Robert Downey Jr with a colossal $64.5 million.

“Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson elbowed out reigning top-ranked Robert Downey Jr. to become the world’s highest-paid actor–and scored his biggest ever annual paycheck in the process,” they revealed. “Johnson’s $64.5 million payday more than doubled his 2015 earnings, making him this year’s biggest dollar gainer.”

But where did all that cash come from?

Apparently, his recent box office successes have driven his fees higher than ever.

“The erstwhile wrestler’s millions and millions came from upfront fees for movies including Central Intelligence and Fast 8, as well as the forthcoming Baywatch in which he’s set to play Mitch Buchannon,” they revealed. “A staple of the Fast and Furious franchise, the stellar box office performance of his recent films (including 2015’s hit San Andreas) have seen his quotes skyrocket.”

Of course, that’s great news for Dwayne Johnson… but not so much for Robert Downey Jr. Although he claimed the top spot last year, RDJ failed to make it into the top five in 2016. Instead, Johnson’s closest rival was Jackie Chan with $61 million - making huge amounts at the Chinese box office. Matt Damon came in third with $55 million, apparently largely to do with the huge success of ‘The Martian’.

“Rounding out the top five is perennial list member Tom Cruise (No. 4, $53 million) and Johnny Depp (No. 5, $48 million)”

Will Dwayne Johnson continue to dominate the box office?

For now, we’ll have to wait and see.

But with high profile projects such as ‘Baywatch’ and ‘Jumanji’ on the horizon, it looks as though he’ll continue to make a killing for the time being.
