Other films described as having an all-star cast have included:
The increasing pay demands of major Hollywood actors since the 1970s has largely precluded similar ensemble casts appearing in more recent productions.
All Star Films is a British entertainment and comedy film, television and interactive production company.
In Music, an All-Star band relates to an ensemble in which every member is considered to be of star quality or to have had a career as an artist in their own right, for example Ringo Starr's All Stars or The AllStars, a collective of session musicians based in London.
The British and Irish Lions rugby union team is similar to an all-stars team; they tour to either Australia, New Zealand or South Africa every four years and are a composite team from England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Being selected for the Lions is one of the biggest honours a player from those nations can receive. The Pacific Islanders rugby union team is a similar team from Samoa, Fiji and Tonga but thus far have only played 3 separate one-off tests against Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in 2004.
