While two of Hollywood's most popular action stars are duking it out in the box office, we thought it might be a good time for them to face off in the only thunderdome that really matters: ET's Celebrity Showdown.
Looking at seven unique criteria that weigh box-office earnings, critic's reviews and award season gold, Celebrity Showdown examines the anatomy of both stars' careers to show who's really the best.
So, will Chappie star Hugh Jackman (beloved for his many, many turns playing Wolverine in the X-Men franchise) be able to take down action veteran Liam Neeson (best known for the many films in which he's had to retrieve people who have been taken)? For fun, take a guess, then check out our totally scientific results.*
ROUND 7 -'AWARDS' SCORE* Hugh Jackman: 2 (WIN)
Liam Neeson: 0 *2 points for Oscar wins, 1 point for Golden Globes, Emmy or Screen Actors Guild Wins, .5 points for People's Choice Wins and -1 point for a Razzie Win.
As for Mr. Jackman? It's all a matter of volume. Neeson's been in nearly three times as many films. And, as well-known as the X-Men franchise is, none of them have ever really been as monumentally successful as any of Marvel Studios' comic book films.
