6. The Whistleblower

Character: Kathryn Bolkovac

Call me biased, but Weisz + whistleblowers is an instant win for me. It’s actually a great movie too, which helps justify its place on this list.

5. The Fountain


Character: Tomas/Tommy/Tom Creo

Hugh Jackman plays Tom, a scientist who travels through time to cure his wife’s (played by Weisz) cancer and seek immortality. From the 16th century to the 26th century, he learns about the mysteries of life, death, and love.

4. Definitely, Maybe

Definitely Maybe Rachel Weisz

Character: Summer Hartley

Weisz plays Summer/Natasha in the story Will Hayes tells his daughter of how he met her mother. It’s a lot shorter of a story than the TV series based on the same concept.

3. Oz the Great and Powerful


Character: Evanora

Weisz costars with James Franco, Michelle Williams, and Mila Kunis in this big-budget Oz reboot. She’s the Wicked Witch of the East, who has a crucial role in the series of events that follow.

2. Enemy at the Gates

Enemy at the Gates

Character: Tania Chernova

This 2001 war film has a supporting role for Weisz in order to pigeonhole a love story into it. She pulls it off well, at the height of her Hollywood fame, and adds a touch of character to an otherwise tense movie.

1. The Mummy Franchise

Character: Evelyn Carnahan/Nefertiri

Weisz only shows up in the first two Mummy movies, but she’s the reason to watch them. Her performance as a strong-willed librarian outshines The Rock’s debut, CGI effects, and all the rest of her male costars. It’s a shame she dropped out, which destroyed the series with a bland replacement by the third movie.
