This is bullsh*t. Maybe he has the most in a contract "up front", like he gets 25 mill no matter what, but many actors make over that with movie-gross royalties.

wrong most actors don't even get that because they are not involved as producers, tom cruise is, which is why he's rich as sh*t. actors fees are paid up front, and thats all they get.

they said the only movies he eva made were the rush hours... he was in money talks and dead presidents...

so that doesnt make his value of 600 million for the 2 films down...


also the highest paid actor 4 one movie is bruce willis with 6th sense... he made ova 100million with that...

keanu reeves brought in ova $150 million with the matrix... he owns part of the trilogy
wrong....

wow man , that is pretty big !!

i unno i stand corrected ..... my next q would be why the hell they would dump that much cash into a flick ? i mean seriously is that how much we need to spend to put out a flick ? thats rediculous ...

but anyways ,,

all in all speaking of chris tucker , dude , i absolutly love what he brings to the table .... but its just such a damn shame ... such a wasted talent for him to be so one dimensional with this whole rush hour thing ....

i mean at this point i dont give 2 sh*ts about jackie chan ... mainly cause theres a billion other dudes who do much more extreme sh*t and are pretty much 10 fold more talented ..

and them story lines of rush hour are just terrible. ... and even the wave of sh*t after the first rush hour .. ala romeo must die , exit wounds , etc etc ... pretty much following suit , its a lame hollywood ..

but i just prey for the love of the industry and for movies like Friday , that we the fans and the industry gets a lift with the return of smokey !!!
because with things like these sequels they expect to make it back, spiderman 3 is costing 250 dollars which i think is ridiculous but w/e

I like Chris Tucker, but this article is complete bullsh*t.

Cruise co-produced MI3 and he starred in it. He will make more than 40-50 mill from the film; And Arnold made 30 mill plus back-end percentages on Terminator 3.

let's be honest...those numbers make chris tucker THE highest paid actor...NO ONE else is getting paid like that before filming even starts or before the movie hits theatres for that matter...they are paying him 25 mill just to do the movie...of course he is going to make even more after it hits theatres, dvd sales, and whatnot...i think y'all are misinterpreting what the article is saying

MI3 is a flop because it didnt make anything close to what it cost to make the movie... which was $150,000,000 so its still has to make 90 Million to break even a movie isnt a sucess unless it makes twice or three times as much as it cost to make...

That's a lot of money.. Guess because it didn't meet their expextations, but who cares... plus they wanna hate on Tom Cruise. He gets love in the hood. Did you all see him on 106 and park. priceless.

Chris Tucker is the highest paid actor in the world reports Roger Friedman of Foxnews.com. If true, that would mean Tucker earns more per film than the actor behind one of the biggest flops in recent movie history - Tom Cruise ("MI-3").

Friedman notes that Tucker, who has just signed a $25 million deal with New Line Cinema to make "Rush Hour 3", is on par with Will Smith who earns slightly less than $25 million per movie. The new deal, Friedman reports, is "play or pay" meaning Tucker gets paid whether the movie is made or not.

Friedman also pointed out that Tucker's career is limited to just the 2 "Rush Hour" movies which makes his pay rate an even bigger achievement. Both "Rush Hour" movies grossed $600 million worldwide combined.


M I III was no flop playboi, Tom Cruise was good in that movie, you just sound like a Tom Cruise Hater, and I'm not a big tom cruise fan, I prefer will smith or a mel gibson movie. MI 3 was good, and big ups to Kris for finally getting what he wanted, well he wanted 30 mill, at first but at least he compromised.
