Higher Salary Gun / Salaries
As mentioned a minute ago, Tom Cruise’s salary for the “Top Gun” of 1986 was $ 2 million. After adjusting for inflation, that equates to about $ 5.4 million today. Believe it or not, $ 2 million was 13% of the Top Gun’s total budget of $ 15 million. During the recording of Top Gun, a Tom Cruise-based film called “Legend” was bombed in a box, much to the dismay of producers Jerry Bruckheimer and Don Simpson. Fortunately, Top Gun became the highest-grossing film in 1986 with a net profit of $ 360 million.
Fast forward to thirty years in 2018/2019. After years of gossip, rumors and hopes from fans, the successive Top Gun was finally produced primarily by producer David Ellison, son of Larry Ellison and founder of Skydance. While David Ellison, a big fan of Top Gun and the pilot himself, launched Skydance in 2006 the FIRST film he wanted to make was the Top Gun series. When the stars finally coincided, Skydance made 25% of the film’s estimated $ 200 million budget.
The “Top Gun: Maverick” was originally due to be released in mid-2020, but had to be delayed for two years due to COVID. Tom is the star and main producer of this series of poems. His first Top Gun salary: Maverick was $ 13 million. More importantly, as director Tom has a 10 – 20% revenue for the “first dollar” of the film. That is an agreement that no other Hollywood star can guarantee. The first dollar amount is paid after movie theaters, known as exhibitors, take up 40% of receipts, but before all other studio costs including marketing and production.
If Top Gun: Maverick makes $ 1 billion and Tom owns 10% of the first dollar total, he will earn about $ 60 million. If he has 20%, he will earn about $ 120 million. If he has 20% and if you add up street sales sales, it is likely that Tom will earn about $ 200 million which is about 100x of his first Top Gun salary.

The deal was dissolved in 2006 after Tom’s controversial statements about mental health and anti-depressants grew feathers and spread across the industry. Support has since been provided by hedg
