10 Hollywood stars who need a hit
Jim Carrey, Harrison Ford, Nicole Kidman and others struggle to get back on top
The Situation: Bloom was part of the two biggest film franchises of the 2000s (they're even recognized just by acronyms: "L.O.T.R." and "P.O.T.C."), but what else has he really done? "Kingdom of Heaven" and "Elizabethtown" failed to make him a star on his own, "The Three Musketeers" flopped domestically. "The Hobbit" trilogy did big box office numbers, but was a threequel that limped to the finish because it was a mess, hardly yielding renewed starpower for anybody.
Why there's hope: He's dipping back into the "Pirates of the Caribbean" well for 2017's "Dead Men Tell No Tales."
