All Felicity Jones Movies Ranked by Tomatometer
Before starring in the first Fresh Star Wars spin-off (we know, we know, you can’t believe The Ewok Adventure is Rotten), Felicity Jones built an impressive resume in her native Britain, where she had been working as an actress since the age of 12. The Worst Witch and its sequel Weirdster College are beloved in certain circles of English millennials, and Jones graduated after that into movies like Flashbacks of a Fool with Daniel Craig, and Brideshead Revisited. Her start in America came with the 2011 romantic drama Like Crazy with Anton Yelchin, which was able to pick up extra headlines for also co-starring Jennifer Lawrence, who was on the cusp of Hunger Games megastardom.
Upwards career trajectory in the 2010s suggests that you haven’t made it until you’re in a superhero movie. With Jones, it was The Amazing Spider-Man 2. (Hey, it doesn’t say the superhero movie had to be actually good.) Jones played Felicia Hardy, who would’ve gone on to become Black Cat, had Sony not given Spider-Man over to Marvel Studios for an MCU makeover. That same year, she was nominated for a Best Actress Oscar with The Theory of Everything, starring Eddie Redmayne, who did win an Oscar for it.
By 2016, she was picking up blockbuster work: A Monster Calls (which critics loved, but no one saw); Inferno (which critics hated, but some people saw); and Rogue One (which the critics loved, and everyone saw). The packed filming schedule and Rogue One‘s famously troubled production may have been what led Jones to a quiet 2017, before returning in 2018 with On the Basis of Sex, portraying Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That was her only movie that year, and likewise in 2019, she’s got the one: The Aeronauts, a survival adventure of air balloon pioneers that reunites her with Redmayne. She takes to the skies, and we’re taking a look back with all Felicity Jones movies, ranked by Tomatometer!
