The movie has made $1.1 BILLION at the box office so far and Cruise is set to earn 10% of Paramount’s cut, plus what he’d get from the DVD and streaming release.
A reporter recently broke down Cruise’s potentially massive pay day, and it’s all thanks to to technicalities in his contract. His salary was $12.5 million PLUS 10%.
If the movie reaches $1.3 billion, Cruise’s cut would be around $55 million. He’s estimated to be cashing out at $80 to $90 million overall.
