Despite the coronavirus, the film industry continues to function with stellar productions. As reflected in the specialized website of CinemasComics, Netflix decided to sign “11 superstars” for their new science fiction film, which will be directed by Adam McKay.

From the perspective of Infobae, it will be a mega-production, called Don't Look Up, which will include stars such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Matthew Perry or Ariana Grande. A large cast in terms of personalities.

It will be a film that, at least from production, seemed to captivate large audiences. Of course, it remains to be seen how the final product looks, but the signs are promising. Against this background, we decided to find out which are the films with the best acting casts in history.

Valentine's Day

We start with a 2010 film that was not very successful in terms of critical reception, but that was able to dazzle with its acting cast. From the El Planeta website, they emphasize the "multi-star" cast that this production has, which shows the intertwined stories of several people on Valentine's Day. 

Directed by veteran director Garry Marshall, we have the participation of several major stars. Among them, Jessica Alba, Patrick Dempsey, Hector Elizondo, Jamie Foxx, Julia Roberts, Taylor Swift, Emma Roberts, Taylor Lautner, Ashton Kutcher, Anne Hathaway, among others.


One of the most acclaimed films of Cristopher Nolan. Also launched in 2010, the Hypertext medium mentions that it is the director's "strange look" on reality, with a really complex plot, based on dreams, but which was also accompanied by a really important cast.

In this case, the undisputed protagonist of the film was the talented Leonardo DiCaprio, but he was not alone.  He was joined by Ellen Page, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Tom Berenger, Ken Watanabe and Michael Caine, among others. 

The Irishman

One of the most anticipated films of last year. It was a production by the talented Martin Scorsese, who decided to bring together a cast of stars with whom he knew how to work throughout his career, so that they could have a proper farewell. 

From Espinof's perspective, this film of more than 3 hours was thought of as a “closing chapter for the author's gangster trilogy” , because both the actors who accompanied him during his filmography and the director were in old age, something that was portrayed on the Irishman. The film stars Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Ray Romano, Bobby Cannavale and Anna Paquin, among others.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Here we also have another of the most popular and anticipated films of 2019. Directed by Quentin Tarantino, it is a film that tried to represent the golden age of Hollywood. Therefore, all this was a "cinematic event", from the point of view of HobbyConsolas.

We are not only talking about one of the most transcendent directors of recent times, but also about a plot based on the classic Los Angeles that would have a luxury cast . Mainly, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, who play an actor and a stuntman in the film. To that cast, Margot Robbie, Julia Butters, Al Pacino or Luke Perry, among others, are added.

Avengers: Endgame

Finally, we cannot omit, not only one of the most hype premieres of the last year, but also of the last decade. Avengers: Endgame worked because the Marvel Cinematic Universe prepared, over more than 20 films, particular stories that would culminate in this film. In other words, the film that best represents the acting complexity and the multitude of stars in the same story.

From Xataka they revealed that it became one of the best films of all time, since we can see on screen all the very important characters of the entire saga, represented by luxury actors. Among them, we can mention Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemswort, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, among others.
