Harrison Ford: King of Summer

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

The Fugitive

Released: 1993

U.S. box office gross: $183.9 million

The Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises were hugely popular, but The Fugitive is probably the summer hit that cemented Ford’s place as the king of the blockbuster season. After all, this was a remake of the old TV series that appeared in theaters with low expectations in August — at the time, a traditionally slower movie-going month —and then blossomed into a smash. Ford gave accused murderer Dr. Richard Kimble a relentless urgency as he scoured Chicagoland hunting a one-armed killer, and Tommy Lee Jones matched him as Deputy Gerard, the U.S. marshal on his trail.

The Fugitive earned seven Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, and won Jones an Academy Award as Best Supporting Actor. Ford had to settle for sharing that year’s MTV Award for Best On-Screen Duo with Jones.
