“Top Gun: Maverick” comes out this weekend and is set to be one of the biggest films this year. Tom Cruise is expected to make about $200 Million off this film. How did they come up with this total?

The movie is expected to bring in $1 Billion dollars. Instead of taking a guaranteed one time amount for the film, he made a deal where he would get 20 percent of the total amount from the backend. Take 20 percent of the expected $1 Billion, and Tom Cruise is a richer man!

Not many know though that Tom Cruise invested $13 Million of his own money to make the movie. Small price to pay to make a huge return! We have more on this story and others in today’s Entertainment News!
