PS: For those who have seen THE CONVERSATION and have watched one of its concluding monents with Hackman (5), Harrison Ford (14) and Robert Duvall (9), do you ever wish Hollwywood films of today would be able to afford trios like that in the same scene? At least in 1990s terms and beyond, it's unthinkable. Granted Duvall only had a surprise cameo and Ford was only beginning his career at this point but this is the sort of retroactive power-combo that you just can't get anymore. It's hard enough to have TWO superstars in the same room now, let alone three....
The Avengers had Robert Downey Jr and Samuel L Jackson, while Chris Evans is at least as far along in his career as Ford was then. Chris Nolan's Batman movies have had the likes of Liam Neeson, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman and Heath Ledger, as well as star-making roles from Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and the like.

Nolan's The Prestige had post-Batman Bale, Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine, while his Inception had Leo DiCaprio, Caine, Cillian Murphy, JGL and Ken Wanatabe.

The Departure had Leo opposite Matt Damon, Mark Wahlberg, Jack Nicholson, Martin Sheen and Alec Baldwin. Bruce Willis and JGL are currently sharing a screen in Looper. And comedy movies frequently feature big-name multiple comedy combos (the latest is Ferrell and Galifianakis in The Campaign). Even the Bond movies have gotten in on the act - instead of the no-name supports of days past, we have Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem lending support to Daniel Craig in Skyfall.
