‘Top Gun: Maverick’ earned Tom Cruise $100 million, making him this year’s highest-paid actor. Here are some of Hollywood’s other highest-paid actors.
Even though the basic salary for the “Top Gun” sequel was just 13 million dollars, Tom Cruise continues to be the most talented actor in the business in this regard.
He makes the most of his money off of the back end, which means that if a movie is a smashing success at the box office, like “Maverick,” Cruise will receive first-dollar gross.
Therefore, he will receive a portion of the money earned by the movie even before the studio has a chance to enjoy some of its profits.
No matter what, the Oscar winner will continue to make a lot of money despite the now-famous smack. Emancipation, an escaped-slave drama, will be his next payday on Apple TV+.
The latest collaboration between Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese will net him another hefty paycheck.
For his upcoming film, the actor who won an Academy Award for Best Actor will be driving a race vehicle. Joseph Kosinski, who directed “Top Gun: Maverick,” is going to be in charge of this project.
In addition to his base salary, like Tom Cruise, Dwayne Johnson also receives several bonuses. In addition to receiving a producer credit for the film, he also receives a significant financial reward for marketing it on his many social media platforms.
