What are the best movies with amazing actresses?

Most of the time, upcoming movies receive huge amounts of hype because of how it is promoted. However, automatic recognition and anticipation await those titles that feature a well-known cast. How many times have we seen stagnant movie franchises seem to get up from the grave by employing the services of top actors and actresses? Of course, it is not all the time that top industry icons are recognized in good movies, but rarely do you see a movie highly praised without the help of great acting performances. Amongst the highest-grossing box-office titles, you will find the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, or Robert Downey, Jr. But how much success can films attain without a touch of feminine charm? How many female superheroes have we actually adored in movies? Do you think actresses have been killing it lately?

For so long, brilliant actresses in movies have taken on the spotlight in Hollywood films. Every year, the Best Actress award winner in every major award-giving ceremony automatically makes it big, that is if they are not that much of an icon already. However, it is not all the time that we see our favorite actresses get the recognition that they deserve. Amazing actresses are not only found in the middle of dramatic roles and serious scripts. Some of these female icons are scattered in different genres all over the world of cinema. If you want to see more movies that feature amazing actresses giving out stellar performances, we got you covered. Check out this list and we guarantee that you will love what the ladies bring.
