Eric Bana

Is he over?

by Anonymousreply 6302/09/2013

he's hot, but ever did he do in the first place, I'd ask.

by Anonymousreply 111/24/2012

No way, OP.

by Anonymousreply 211/24/2012

I hope not.

"Troy" was the peak of his popularity.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him again. He's handsome and competent. He just didn't have "it."

by Anonymousreply 611/24/2012

With the exception of STAR TREK (where his role was basically a cameo), R4 is right about Bana: he's been box office poison since TROY.

He was hot looking, but also really aloof and off-putting and never really connected with audiences.

by Anonymousreply 711/24/2012

The last big film he was in was the new "Star Trek" a few years ago where he played the villain, but he was no Khan, and was largely forgettable.

He was a this hottest in Munich which was also a great movie.

by Anonymousreply 911/24/2012

He played a Star Trek villain which means his career was already on the decline (see Malcolm McDowell, F. Murray Abraham)

I beg your fucking pardon, r10?

by Anonymousreply 1111/24/2012

He has always looked like a buffed up Corey Feldman to me. And that makes my skin crawl.

by Anonymousreply 1211/24/2012

He's incredible! One day, we"ll be together.

by Anonymousreply 1311/24/2012

Hot in Troy.

by Anonymousreply 1411/24/2012

agree R14, so HOT in Troy!

by Anonymousreply 1511/24/2012

If he's looking to regenerate some buzz, I recommend a full-frontal scene in anything.

by Anonymousreply 1611/24/2012

He was so sexy in Munich.

by Anonymousreply 1711/24/2012

His career has been interesting because he was much more of a comedian than anything else until the Australian film "Chopper," where he proved he had dramatic chops. The Australians went nuts about him and compared his performance to Russell Crowe's in "Romper Stomper," and thought it would catapult him to Hollywood as "Romper Stomper" did for Crowe (which is exactly what happened) and that he'd take off and be a giant star just like Crowe (which is exactly what didn't happen).

The camera loves him, and he's not a bad actor at all--he's very thoughtful and contemplative and passive, however, which seems at odds with his hunk image. (He's not an explosive brooder like Crowe is -- he's more recessed and intelligent.) Unfortunately, he's had terrible box office luck: "The Hulk," "Troy" and "Munich" were all expected to cause a sensation of one kind or another, and none of them did. I'm not sure if the fault was in any way his, though it is interesting that he keeps getting attached to action films that get faulted for ultimately being too ponderous.

It's funny to me he's not done comedy in the US, since that's his training.

by Anonymousreply 1811/24/2012

He did comedy in that Judd Apatow movie.

by Anonymousreply 1911/24/2012

Bana body.

by Anonymousreply 2011/24/2012

Yes, he did FUNNY PEOPLE, which was also a major B.O. disappointment.

by Anonymousreply 2111/24/2012

He suffers from tinynip syndrome.

It's a shame that we live in a world where Channing Tatum's acting career flourishes while Eric Bana's stalls.

by Anonymousreply 2311/24/2012

I really like him, but he needs to luck into a really good role in a high-profile movie if he still wants a Hollywood career. His latest film, Deadfall, premiered on Video on Demand earlier this month. It's supposed to be in theaters Dec. 7, but I doubt it will be a wide release.

by Anonymousreply 2411/25/2012

Bana had more breaks than any other actor in living memory.

2003: Hulk was a disappointment. Didn't make him a big star.

2004: Troy was a hit but he shared the screen with Brad Pitt, who stole the film. Didn't make him a big star.

2005: Munich was a flop (with one of the worst sex scenes ever). Didn't make him a big star.

2006 to 2008: Appeared in a series of low-key films which didn't make him a star.

2009: Star Trek, Funny People and Time Traveler's Wife. Star Trek is a big hit but he played a villain with nothing to do. FP and TTW go nowhere. None of the films made him a star.

Is he over? Most definitely.

He's got a banging body but unfortunately he sorta resembles Corey Feldman. No one can say he didn't get a chance. Few people got as many big projects in a row as Bana.

What, you got something against hugely pregnant sex?

by Anonymousreply 2611/25/2012

He was still on the up-and-up after Munich, but what he did after that bombed - Lucky You and The Other Boleyn Girl; the latter in particular had high expectations and did terribly.

by Anonymousreply 2711/25/2012

Eric Bana wants to do more comedies, and less drama. I think that's a mistake on Bana's part.

by Anonymousreply 2811/25/2012

Plus, he's 44 years old. It's a little late for him to reinvent himself professionally, much less break through as a leading man.

by Anonymousreply 2911/25/2012

Wasn't "Time Traveler's Wife" also expected to overperform but did the opposite? He was nude for a lot of the film and that *still* didn't bring in the fraus.

He's a lot like Brad Pitt; famous for his looks but lots of acting chops underneath. He has no tabloid-ready wife at his side, so he will have to look for a script/project to let his talent burn through.

by Anonymousreply 3011/25/2012

He's most definitely got a stench on him not only after all those high profile bombs, but his indie movies have all been flops as well. It's too bad because I always liked him.

by Anonymousreply 3111/25/2012

Oh God, "The Other Boleyn Girl"! Horrible, horrible film, how Portman and Johanssen managed to find work after that I don't know. They were just horrible, amateurish, unbelievably bad. Johanssen in particular proved she can't do anything with a historical character but look good in the costumes.

Bana was bad, too, especially since his Henry VIII sounded awfully Australian at times. But he wasn't AS bad as the leads.

by Anonymousreply 3211/25/2012

Hope not. He's hot.

by Anonymousreply 3311/25/2012

Great pic of him

by Anonymousreply 3411/25/2012

What do we think his COCK is like???

by Anonymousreply 3511/26/2012

Apparently very well endowed.

He doesn't seem to care that he isn't an A Lister. Spends at least half the year in Melbourne with his family. Still getting okish film roles, just not the really big roles unfortunately.

Tell us more, R36! Sources, info, pics?

What's our gut instinct about Eric Bana's GIRTH?

by Anonymousreply 3711/26/2012

I like him a lot for the obvious reasons- very hot- much hotter (and better actor) than Pitt in Achilles- hope he keeps making flicks.

by Anonymousreply 3811/26/2012

I walked past him once on the street. It was at some movie premiere he was attending in my neighborhood (SVA Theater on 23rd in Chelsea, NY). I was practically right on top of him before I realized he was Eric Bana.

Completely average in looks, with a doughy body and a pock-marked face. He was sort of handsome but no one you would be head-over-heels about. He must have STARVED himself for Troy, because he is definitely a carb lover. He seemed like a sweet quiet guy, but not a movie star. Clive Owen, on the other hand - same pock-marked face - radiates sex appeal in person.

by Anonymousreply 3911/26/2012

How tall is he? Anyone?

by Anonymousreply 4011/26/2012


by Anonymousreply 4111/26/2012

He is like 5'10" R41, I am guessing.

by Anonymousreply 4211/26/2012

Yes, but what about his girth measurements??

by Anonymousreply 4311/26/2012

Excellent nose job.

by Anonymousreply 4511/26/2012

If he wants to do comedies, he should do one in drag. I might even invest in that film.

by Anonymousreply 4611/26/2012

The guy was a charisma vacuum. good riddance.

About 6'2

Funny video R44. He was HOT! Still is, to me.

by Anonymousreply 4911/26/2012

Never did enough nudity.

by Anonymousreply 5011/26/2012

He has been replaced by Joe Manganiello.

by Anonymousreply 5111/26/2012

He looked so hot in Troy. Did they darken his hair? I wouldn't have recognized him from that first pic. Why didn't Munich make more money? It was well acted and dramatic.

by Anonymousreply 5211/26/2012

I thought MUNICH was terrible, but I fault the script and direction more than the actors. What could have been suspenseful and tragic was incredibly dull and self-righteous.

by Anonymousreply 5311/26/2012

He fixed his nose, but not his ears?

by Anonymousreply 5411/26/2012

He barely showed his ass, let alone his cock.

Not acceptable.

You need to show more of yourself if you want to be successful.

by Anonymousreply 5511/27/2012

Most Australian pretty boys can't really act, so I'm not surprised that he flops over and over again. The successfully Aussie male actors in Hollywood are either known for just being pretty or having big muscles in roles where they have either no emotion or act angry.

by Anonymousreply 5611/27/2012

Is he over? Honey, he never started IMO. He is NOT leading man material but he is a competent character actor which he has proven by the myriad small roles he has played over the years.

by Anonymousreply 5711/27/2012

He showed his ass in Munich during some sex scenes. Boy, he's got a munchable ass..

by Anonymousreply 5811/27/2012

He did full frontal in The Hulk (from a distance, of course).

by Anonymousreply 5911/27/2012

can we discuss his GIRTH please??

by Anonymousreply 6011/27/2012

what does Eric Bana's hole smell like pls?

by Anonymousreply 6102/07/2013

roses and cinnamon

by Anonymousreply 6202/07/2013

R61 Last I checked, it smelled like Vaseline and my jizz.
