Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar and Shah Rukh Khan are among the world's 10 highest paid actors list

It's Markie Mark vs.

Dwayne Johnson, who placed first in 2016, is in second place with $65 million, after starring in the big screen reboot of lifeguard action-comedy "Baywatch" and starring in HBO comedy "Ballers".

The 46-year-old star won his place at the top of the list compiled by Forbes magazine, thanks to earnings from "Transformers: The Last Knight" and comedy sequel "Daddy's Home 2", due out in November.

Mark Wahlberg just delivered a smackdown to Dwayne Johnson, dethroning The Rock to take the top spot on Forbes's annual list of the world's highest-paid actors.

Adam Sandler may have stunk up the box office in recent years but Netflix's gamble to sign the comedian up to a multi-movie deal landed him in the fifth position with $US50.5 million ($64 million) for 2017.

Below The Rock comes his Furious co-star Vin Diesel whose money came from multiple franchise movies including xXx: The Return of Xander Cage and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

The magazine's list also revealed that Johnny Depp - who has been among the top five paid actors for years - failed to make the top 20 in the latest rankings. Last week, the magazine named "La La Land" Oscar victor Emma Stone as the world's highest paid actress with an estimated 2017 take of US$26 million.

Numerous men on the list were actors in Marvel's "The Avengers" movie franchise, including Robert Downey Jr., sixth with $48 million, Chris Hemsworth, 11th with $31.5 million, and Ryan Reynolds, 18th with $21.5 million.

The Forbes list also includes plenty of veterans who refuse to fade away with Tom Cruise hanging on to seventh ($US43 million), Tom Hanks 12th ($US31 million) and Samuel L Jackson 13th ($US30.5 million).
