Harrison Ford: King of Summer

The actor’s summer movies have made billions at the box office. We count down his biggest hits

Harrison Ford in Six Days, Seven Nights. — Buena Vista Pictures/Everett/ Everett Collection

Six Days, Seven Nights

Released: 1998

U.S. box office gross: $74.3 million

By the summer of 1998, Ford’s summertime star power had dimmed — but he was still a big enough draw to pretty much singlehandedly push this rom-com/adventure flick to a respectable take at the box office. Ford played a middle-aged pilot who crash lands his small plane on a deserted island while ferrying an annoying magazine journalist (Anne Heche) to an assignment.

The pieces seemed to be in place for a big winner: in addition to the reliable Ford, Heche was a hot commodity at the time and director Ivan Reitman has helmed some of the most successful comedies ever. Alas, though the movie was a financial success, the crash landing was an apt metaphor for its general reception among critics and audiences.
