All Scarlett Johansson Movies Ranked
From an early age, Scarlett Johansson was determined to make it as an actress, going through the classic journey of entertaining family members as a kid before moving on to progressively larger stages. Today, Johansson entertains on a global scale and holds the distinction of being the highest-grossing actress ever.
Johansson got her first starring role at 12-years-old in the dark road comedy Manny & Lo, and it was only four years later she got the indie cred double whammy with Ghost World and The Man Who Wasn’t There. Lost in Translation, Sofia Coppola’s melancholic drama of drifting romantic souls, made her a household name. Next came a brief stint as Woody Allen’s muse in Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Scoop.
Johansson joined the MCU as Black Widow in Iron Man 2, and has been a steady participant since, leading into Avengers: Endgame and side story Black Widow. She also received critical acclaim recently for Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story. Take a look at every Scarlett Johansson movie ranked by Tomatometer! —Alex Vo
